a few days


In between my work days last week I managed to pack up the kids and head down the coast for a few days. It was a nice change of pace for us, and it was great to see just how much that have grown up too. They helped collect fire-wood and keep the fire going, they toasted marshmallows on long sticks and ate them sandwiched between chocolate wheatons, they went fishing a couple of times with Grand-pa, played on the beach, launched water balloons into pine-trees, and basically unplugged for a few days.

It was so easy, we might go again some time.

poppy pods

nature is so amazing, the colours, patterns, and textures

not to mention that they all sound like tiny baby rattles as each pod is full of thousands of seeds just waiting to be caught in the breeze so they can make their way into the world via the tiny openings

perfectly designed by mother nature
