Marshmallow Ducks!

What do you do if your toddler wants to bring in a birthday treat but the class has nut, gluten and dairy allergies? You make marshmallow ducks, of course!

Happy birthday to my favorite rain duck dragon!

Homemade zen

Behind our garage we've had a plot of land which nothing grows, not even grass. It has been dirt and a pile of leftover field stones for three years...until now!

Inspiration finally struck, and instead of expensive landscaping, Rain Dragon and I spent the weekend building a labyrinth!

 I'm hoping I can use the area as kind of a backyard zen retreat (plans to strewn the area with violet seeds--perhaps with the rocks they might grow--and add some flag banners, maybe a bench)...though, I have a suspicion that  Rain Dragon has plans to use it as race track for her toy ducks. 

Can't wait to finish it!

Sometimes it's hard to be on the road...

"You can bring Totoro with you so you can hug him at night if you are lonely," says Rain Dragon.
