Dandelion Wishes and Fairy Gliders

Today the sun is shining and although it's just a tiny bit chilly, it's beautiful outside. So Jace and I decided to take advantage of the nice sunny day and we went out and collected Dandelion Wishes and Fairy Gliders. We decided that we better collect some for later use because Daddy will be mowing the dandelions down tonight and when summer's over so will be these little simple pleasures.

Usually we call these helicopters, but we decided today that they would be really cool for the fairies to play on.
So now they are Fairy Gliders.

Jace is picking some wishes to put in the jar

Wow, we have a lot of dandelions!
Why are Dandelions probably the most beautiful flower to a child,
but to adults they are ugly and just a weed?
Beauty and wishes
who couldn't ask for more in something so simple?!

Here's Jace with his jar full of wishes and Fairy Gliders.
Later we can make wishes and leave the fairies little surprises to play on.

Oh, by the way, I DID NOT pick out Jace's outfit. The orange shorts, furry jacket and cowboy boots are his wardrobe choices and who am I to argue with him over it.

This is the sweetest post! I didn't even notice his little outfit until you said something about it. That is so cute! Sorry I haven't been visiting much but since Granny passed away it is hard to get back at it. I hope I will be back at it soon. I hope you are all doing great.

Too adorable! Dandelion seed heads are the coolest things. I have a few photos I took of them. Digging the plants out is a pain. If the dandelions are in a place without pesticides you can eat the greens or make tea. Really. : )
