The Great Fairy House Hunt


Today we went on a bit of an adventure out to the Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Maryland.  It was a hike to get to but completely worth it.  Apparently every year they set up fairy houses all through the woods with a map to find them so the kids were pretty much in heaven running through the forest.  There were actual sculptures too of course, but the kids weren't really interested.  When you check in at the admission desk they also provide fairy costumes which David and John took advantage of........which was adorable.  Henry however is much too serious to take part in such frivolity.

John:  [after putting on his wings, voice full of disappointment] I not flying in the sky mommy.
Me:  No, you're not.  Maybe if you run faster?

Poor little guy, he never did make it into the air and I took over the wings when he discarded them after he realized they weren't actually magical.

I think we'll have to come back again with Daddy soon.  The fairy houses probably won't lure him in like they did the children but there are bound to be geocaches nearby.......
