Signs Of Fall

This past Monday was a field trip day at school.

The kids love field trips!

Field trips are a great way to slow down and appreciate the things you might not normally see when you're out and about.

The kids were so excited to show me this wonderful orange mushroom while at the park!

It is pretty fantastic, it maybe poisonous...but I made sure we didn't touch it.

Isn't it pretty!

Another little mushroom, not poisonous!

But still exciting!

Different mushrooms all over the park.

It's great to see things through the eyes of a child.

Another stop we make each year is the Dahlia garden.

The kids got quite excited seeing all the different Dahlia's.

I did too!

Last was the Canby Park.

The kids loved the park and I enjoyed finding acorns in the playground while they were playing.

A beautiful day for a field trip.

So if life gets a little hum drum...find a little buddy and take them to the park.

You'd be amazed at what you can find!

Looks like you had fun Debbie. I bet that is your favorite thing to do...field trips. And you are right about slowing down to see the things we miss everyday. That little red-cap is a pretty thing.
hope you are enjoying your weekend and having some of this great weather!
sending hugs...
