Squirrels & Coconuts

Spent some more time on Polyvore to get inspired for Elliott’s {Outdoorsy/Nature Girl} party in May…

E's 6th

Lots of clear glass containers filled with all sorts of goodness from gummy caterpillars to froggy yo-yos to Arnold Palmers.

Loving the turquoise & orange combo.

The {wedding} sign will obviously read something more like {Party this way!} or {A Woodsy Welcome!}. I just loved the organic, handmade feel of it.

Spray painted pine cones. Pin The Fairy on The Flower. Live owls.

Getting excited with a couple other goodies up my sleeve that I will share soon!

Do you munch on Luna bars? I love them for mornings when it’s a little too hectic to prepare steel cut oats or pull the blender out for a smoothie. My faves are Lemon Zest and Chocolate Peppermint Stick, BUT…..there is a new kid on the block and she is swiftly taking the lead…

Chocolate. Dipped. Coconut.

In case you haven’t noticed, I am coocoo for coconut!

If you also adore this fruit and in need of an occasional quick breakfast or snack, you must pick a couple of these up.

Happy soon-to-be Friday….we’re almost there!

 

Take A Hike!

This morning we checked out Placerita Canyon State Park.

We figure we’d better get out and do this stuff before the temps get over 100*…which will be soon enough!

There is a trail to a waterfall, but it was 5 miles round trip! The tikes aren’t quite ready for that just yet, so we hiked to the water tower instead!

Enjoying the view:

{I am currently obsessed with these $3 Organic Cotton “wife beater” racer back tanks from Wal-mart}

My absolute fave pic of the day:

Playing in the creek:

We learned all about owls and this little falcon:

Try explaining “taxidermy” to an almost 5 year old, too! That’s fun….

“Is it dead?”

“Uh, yes it is, Sweetie.”

“Well, why is it’s eyes open?”

“Uh, well…..”

I told her she would learn more about it in school when she gets older! Is that bad???

Seriously, how do you explain that?

Nature sure is tiring:

Hope your weekend has been full of exploring and one adventure after another!
