26 weeks pregnant and 4 days
I spy some cranberries!

It's also a good thing that I brought Winslow along because the trails all seemed to move into one another, meaning I think I could've gotten lost back there if I had been on my own. Either way, it was nice to have some time with my hubs to talk about things,even if I did most of the talking. I've been really chatty lately.
Noah lasted about 5 mins into the walk before he fell asleep. He's been fighting a cold lately and I think being outside in the freshair while being pushed in his Chariot made him extra sleepy.
The walk was lovely and I was on the look out for signs of autumn. The rosehip bushes are all turning beautiful shades of deep reds and oranges and so is the fireweed. I saw some sweet little mushrooms peeking up out of the forrest floor. And the biggest excitement of all was the discovery of cranberries! I have been told about them before, but this was the first time that I have ever come across any and been able to identify them. To be safe I didn't eat them ( I wouldn't do that while pregnant) but now that I know they are there, I'm hoping to have someone more knowledgeable help me identify them and then I will go back and pick a few for the freezer. Yum...cranberry /orange muffins await us!
This discovery of cranberries seemed quite fitting today, as yesterday I picked up the latest issue of Canadian Living so that I could read a story that my cousin had written about her childhood experiences of going berry picking with my aunt and cousins. I wish I could find the link. If I do I'll post it.
Happy Thursday my friends!
