Honey, I Shrunk the Bloggers 2013

The yard is coming alive with blooms of buttercups, snow bells, and tulips! I thought today I would repeat one of my favorite posts from March 2010.

Remember that fun movie, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, starring Rick Moranis ?  It is about a scientist who shrinks his children to 1/4 inch and takes them out with the trash?  The rest of the movie is the journey of the children making it back across the back yard, with friendly ants, flying on a bumble bee and surviving giant rain drops! 

 That was a fun movie!

Please forgive my silliness today, but I started thinking about what it would be like to take a walk in the yard, but as a little person.  What about it?  Would you like to join me for my walk today?

Do you mind if we get ....shrunk?
Ok, it's done!

Let's start at the snow bell forest. 

Things look different
from this point of view.


I've never even seen the periwinkle ground cover bloom.   And I feel like I could climb into one of these pale pink tulips and take a little nap.

In fact, I feel pretty good right now considering I've been shrunk.  How about you?  Here comes another tulip forest.

Oh, No!

Here comes Natalie!

Go away kitty!

 Let's hide behind the yellow tulips!

She can't find us!  Let's run back to the snow bell forest and grow up!



Back and ready to grow up!
Ok, it's done!

Thank you for putting up with my silliness today!  I'm always amazed at how different the world looks to little children.  Every once in a while I like to get down on my knees and look at the world ......and I'll
admit it is getting harder and harder to get back up!  Have a wonderful
