Sharing the Love of Nature with Best Friends

A little note before you read any of this post. I had some stubborn little ladies today, the crazy lady with the camera was just a nuisance today, but I still was able to snap a few decent shots.


This post is dedicated to the freindship of young ladies that LOVE to spend time together and LOVE nature. When you put these two loves together you get a beautiful perfect day! First we have Fauna and Natalie, these two have been friends since they were little tiny tots, Natalie even attended Fauna's babyshower. Natalie is only 3 months older than Fauna.


Then we have the little blondies, Araina and Emma, which we often confuse when they are together. They are only 7 months apart.



When you put these four together out in nature, there's no telling what they will discover. Emma was fascinated with wood lice and the pond algae.



Fauna and Natalie always make fairy homes wherever they go, so it was only natural for them to make some in the tall grasses around the pond.



They discovered a home made by a family of beavers. It was quite a bit bigger then their fairy homes.


Taking a hike in the tall grasses was a must!


Then stopping for a good stretch.


Oh, and I actually was able to take "only one" shot of these two by the pond. Oh, the glories of 7 year olds (almost 8, mind you).

Such a great day had by all!

Ha, the first photo is just priceless, and all of the girls are so beautiful! It's awesome that they have such close friendships and love to spend time out in nature together. :)

Oh, how I hope my little guys will find themselves some best friends one day as well.

They look like they're having the best time out there. Araina's face made me laugh. :) I think Elizabeth would really get along well with your girls. She loves doing all those things too.

What a beautiful spring day it was. I think Robin taught them as much outside as they learned inside.
