It's mushroom season again!  In the spring the morels are popping and this week I found my first morel!!!!  My friend called it and adult Easter egg hunt and she was right!  I was sooooo excited to find one. 

Isn't she pretty!  And she was a good size too.  (I don't know why it's a she just sounded right)
Ok so she was the first and only one I've found so far.  Lucky for us I took friends and Super D with me on my hunt. 
With all of us we found over 30!  Morels are one of the easiest to identify mushrooms. 
 (Do your research before eating any mushroom! Eating a mystery mushroom can KILL you so be 100% sure of what you have!)
And they are delicious!  We sautéed our up with asparagus.
Good luck Hunting!  I will be out in the woods again soon looking for more.  With spring all sorts of wild edible are getting ready to be picked. Keep your eye out for them as you hunt :)

Long, long, overdue update!

    So I looked up today and life has raced by!  My girls are growing up way too fast.  Our lives have been busy.  I changed jobs and we are gearing up for a summer of floating, gardening, and building.  Our goal is to get our shop built in the next couple months. 

   The last couple months have been filled with work and some play.  January is birthdays for Super D and me.

The boys has fun target practicing on Levi's birthday.  It was a beautiful day and yes they are outside in January in t-shirts!  I love it! 

After one such fun night our buddy almost was ready to head home but needed a little more shut eye :) 

Who knew that at 12 years old you could still be very entertained by a box.  Sugar Bug spent many hours creating this box of inspiration.

We are just thankful around here that winter is over and warm weather is here.  It gets nicer everyday and we have a huge list of chores and projects for the summer.
