Moonie and I are lucky enough to be able to walk to Blackstone Boulevard when we need a nature fix. Today was gorgeous, warm and sunny enough to feel like May instead of mid-December, and we hiked to the boulevard, then around Swan Point Cemetery. It gave Moonie plenty of chances to find cool stuff on the ground.
Like this mushroom.
And these fashionable berets.
And “spike balls,” which are for a game that only Moonie wants to play, because OUCH, prickles.
Then he toddled over proudly with a shiny gift.
“Look, Mama! Pretty purple!”
I took him home and gave him a gift of his own: his own Moonie-sized bottle of hand sanitizer.
