Every single year, in the fall, Addison and I take a trip to Fairy Land. It's literally right on the edge of our property in Chelsea and consists of a patch of land full of milkweed pods. In the fall they dry up and burst. I have ALWAYS loved milkweed pods and would spend a lot of my childhood searching for them and cracking them open. My favorite ones are the ones that are all fluffy and fall apart in your hand.
So this year we decided to bring along the camera and capture a few shots of Addi tossing the fairies (as we like to call them) into the air. It was just as fun as it always is and a special bonding thing for her and I.
John always laughs at us and says that we are just spreading the seeds of the milkweed plant and next year there will be hundreds more. It drives him crazy, but Addi and I love it!
Now that you know my little 'Addi and Me' thing, do you have a special thing that you do with your children? Something just for the two (or three or four) of you? I'd love to hear about it!
