We started out our day by playing a bit in the dirt. I got Zoey busy making a fairy garden which she had so much fun doing, I love how her garden turned out.
Here is a close-up of the finished garden. We put it underneath our Fairy Crossing sign in the yard.
Zoey is planning on leaving little treasures in the garden every day for the fairies.
The little fairy and the fairy signs were found at Stoney Creek (a local flower and landscaping shop) and the sea shells and stones were found at our dollar store. The acorn hats and moss were in our yard.
While Zoey was busy with her fairy garden I got busy with potting some flowers.
It was really nice to dig in the dirt and work a bit with my hands. I could feel myself getting happier and happier by the minute as I worked. Working with my hands has always been therapeutic for me.
After all the plants were potted it was time to plant the sunflowers! We troweled the dirt and added some soil and planted the seeds. Zoey did most of it...it was kind of her project and she was happy about that!
She found several big, fat worms as she worked which was a perk!
After our gardening and yard projects it was time to go for a bike ride on the Bearskin Trail again. This time we all went as a family and went for a bit of a longer one.
It was the perfect day, the sun was shining and there was a bit of a breeze so we didn't get too hot.
Upon returning home we hung out in the yard again...we brought Leo out so he could hang out with us too.
Then we enjoyed dinner outside and had a fire. Love days like this. Love, love, love them!
My heart is full today. I have so much to be thankful for.
