I am just getting back on track and the laundry is finally done from our fantastic weekend. I think this Memorial Day Weekend could be labeled as one of the best yet. We had amazing weather and lots to do. My mom and dad always make sure the food is stocked, gas tanks are all full and lots of wood for the fires. How lucky am I!
The biggest anticipation by all, including the triplets was mushroom hunting. Memorial Day Weekend is always the time for Morel Mushrooms. Growing up I thought everyone hunted for mushrooms and thought everyone loved them. My own husband didn't know about them and has since become one of the best hunters. My father is so particular about his woods and protecting his deer that really the excitement is equally about the free pass to go out into the woods and spend time. He finds the morels in the same spots every year so we have a route that we take and we make our stops. We make sure we only pick the amount that we will eat and leave the rest for another pick. Walking thru the woods you will hear the kids and their excitement, "Oh my gosh" and "Here is the mother load" or "mom, mom come look at these". Grandpa taught everyone how to pinch them off so that they will come back next year and we just filled our bags.
