Normally my Silent Sundays are photos, with very little to no wordiness from me. But today's rather late post of pics, has a bit of an interesting story to go with it.
Hope you don't mind.
The boys and I decided to go out for a jolly jaunt this week. There is a rather gorgeous walking park only a few miles from where we live, which we'd yet to explore, so we decided today would be the day.
Zade felt the need to "dress" for the occasion. If only he'd had a pipe!
All was going well, we found an enchanted trail through the blackberry bushes, then ran across a sign that warned us that a Cougar had been spotted the week before, so we started watching out for hot mom's and didn't see any. Then we ran across this sign, which made us chuckle a bit...No Break Dancing!!
So, we journeyed onward until.......
We walked to a dead end path and encountered some nervous bees, who apparently thought we were honey thieves. They fiercely came after us and stung those of us who were wearing purple. I guess honey thieves are purple wearers. (The other two were wearing brown) I escaped with only two bee stings, but my son.....
We made our way home quickly and applied sliced potatoes (an old home remedy) to his bee stings. We were both feeling much better after a yummy bowl of potato soup....I used fresh potatoes for that. :)
Needless to say, it was quite an adventure.
Have a happy and lovely Labor Day! :)
