One of the things I love about being a parent is that it forces me outside into nature everyday. I normally would not take a weekday morning to walk around a salt pond hoping to find empty crab shells, purple lobster trap rope, and any sea-beaten piece of wood, but as a mother...this is what I live for.
I love our little outings; whether they be to the cemetery down the street or the salt pond on the peninsula. There's always something that make these outings so much fun. The little one and I really know how to explore. We love finding treasures to bring back home and never leave our house without her collecting basket or a bucket for the beach.
We found a good loot today, including purple lobster trap rope and empty crab shells of all sizes. They always make it home and find their way to the sandbox out back. Our sand box is starting to look like we stole a bit of the beach. But it's nice to feel like we have our own little piece of it in our backyard. Oh, and you should see the chickens trying to figure out what crab shells are. Quite hilarious!
What did you all do today?!
