for dave’s birthday (back in sept) lucy + i made a little scavenger book for them to do on a day of their choosing. we made an accordian book, filled it with random descriptions, loaded an instax with film and packed some washi tape to attach the photos to the book, we put everything in a muslin bag for easy transport. they recently went out for their adventure day + came back with big smiles and stories to tell. i love the way they both came home bursting at the seams to tell me about their day and how their retelling involved lots of laughter and surprises. (my favorite photo is ‘fancy + colorful’ which is of a gentleman’s tiger tattoo on the top of his head.) and folks, i think we have started a lovely new birthday tradition.
