Spider Webs in Spring Mother Natures Doilies ~

This morning was a beautiful one.  Lots of dew on the trees. Anyhow I got a call from my hubby who was going to work and he said “you should see all the spider webs down our road there must be hundreds all along both sides like an army getting ready for battle lol…”  So knowing me I grab my camera (keep in mind I still have the flannel pj’s on ..lumberjack design) off I went.  It was truly awesome… I couldn’t do it justice so I took a picture of part of the road and it looks like there are little aliens on the bushes… That is the first shot the rest are shots of the different webs.  I swear this is where people who crochet got their first designs for doilies… back in the day.

Kids bring out the kid in me.  I haven’t gone  “tobogganing” since our kids were little.  It’s a lot of fun with the grandkids.

all smiles from Jacob at the beginning…serious business…Big brother always there to help little brother.Jacob was quite annoyed (left) he thought we “helped” him down the hill… Shawn hard at work.Shawn discovered an easier way to go down the hill.  Jacob gave up on the toboggan.
