Grandma... your lunch is ready!
















i have so many blessings daily with these kids! today lily, dylan and i went to Lakeland Park, here in our town, and we saw so many cool things. lily spotted a little robin that had just fledged, the baby geese are out running around and we even waded in the lake! it is in the 80's here so wow, did that cold water feel good! when we got back home i went inside to change the baby and i heard lily holler in the door, "grandma, your lunch is ready!" when i went outside lily had set us up with each a "plate" of wild plants!lol she had taken maple leaves and used them like someone else might some lettuce and then layered dandelions, clover and geranium flowers on them! how cute is that?! to give you a little background, lily, her mom and i are all vegetarians. i even pack lily's school lunches as they don't offer alternatives at school for veggies :( so she has been raised with wild foraging foods, and other edibles that most kids have never even imagined. i mean, her favorite book is a wild foraging guide!lol she will flip through the pages and name off things and grab her little belly and say "my love that!!!", when she sees something we have ate together before. so my special lunch was quite a treat today!
