A Gaggle of Geese

I'm not sure where these geese came from, but there were about 25-30 parading down our street the other night.  Now, I personally hate geese.  I think they are pests and they are mean.  Erick has no such fear, and of course encouraged the girls to feed them.  Piper is fearless, but Stella wisely chose to hang out with me.

Their First Fairy House

This was a bed that Piper made for the fairy.  The blanket blew away sadly (a leaf).
I've been wanting to make a fairy house with the girls all summer.  This was an impromptu one that was made the other night.  They had a lot of fun, and I am anxious to make some more.  Maybe one that can be permanent.  Fairies like natural materials, and they had fun collecting sticks and other items from around the yard.  I'm not sure where they found the pink netting though.
