This wasn't a pine forest, but it was beautiful! We spotted so many different types of mushroom nesting on the forest floor, and whilst I would never ever pick, eat or even recommend touching them, they certainly are fascinating. I don't think I've ever seen so many!
Biscuit invented a new game; Musical Photographs. It works along similar lines to Musical Statues, only without any, erm, actual music. The rules are that you must be vigilant at all times and if you spot Mummy taking a photograph, you have to remain completely still. Handy!!
Although we steered well clear of the mushrooms we did manage to snaffle a few sweet chestnuts, one of my favourite autumnal treats. We also hunted for fairies, looked for elves and gnomes and Biscuit sang us a song about ants. It was my favourite kind of day. There's something so special about going for a walk all together, just us, our little family. I treasure these memories.
Have you spotted anything usual around you this year? Everything seems to have been supercharged after such a beautiful summer!
