I tried to get a photo of them together, but these are the faces I got:
Amelia was MAD that I took a photo of her grumpy face, and she wanted me to delete it and replace it with a photo of her smiling face, but of course I kept them both.
Megan walked next to me and pointed out every single spot that she thought would be a good place for a fairy to live. There were fallen down rotting logs, tree stumps, and big leaves all over, so it took us quite a while to walk the mile long trail. Typically Megan and I would fall behind Amelia and Ben, and Megan would take off running to catch up:
They especially liked finding the jack-in-the-pulpit flowers, and they always wanted to lift up the top leaf (petal?) to look inside.
Of course Megan had to take a photo of poop, with my foot beside it for a size reference.
And here are some places that she thought fairies would like to live:
After we got done with our hike, we went over to the beach. It was a little cool, but the girls stuck their feet in the water anyway.
Then they started drawing in the sand. Amelia started off by writing math problems:
And then she switched to writing nice messages to me. What a lovely early Mother's Day present! In the first photo, the heart on the left was drawn by Megan.
I wanted to get a photo of me with all the kids, but of course that didn't happen. However, I did get a few cute ones!
