Breakfast Fungi

The other day as we were walking to the bus stop, the girls noticed a patch of toadstools--really, really large toadstools--growing on someone's lawn.

Bria: "Ewwwww! Look at those mushrooms! Those are gross!"

Sophie: "They not mushrooms! That's PANCAKES!"


PS: I took my camera to the bus stop that afternoon to take a picture of the mushrooms that really did bear a striking resemblance to pancakes, but the offending fungus had disappeared. Most likely cleaned up by the owner of the lawn.

  1. I always loved squishing mushrooms in the grass.

    When I was about 7, I had a friend who almost died from eating mushrooms in her yard. Bad news.

  3. I loved to squish them, but I used to pretend with them as well. You know Alice in wonderland, Journey to the Center of The Earth time adventures. How fun the girls got to spot them.

  4. Yeah, I was going to say thank goodness Sophie didn't try to eat them. They are having so many new experiences in your new state!
