I've been trying to spend as much time with Sydney outside as possible this summer. Probably something to do with my quick approaching due date (which in my head equals the end of fun as we know it. I know that's not true, it's just going to be different!) Last Friday we made a sailboat out of willow branches from our yard. We have a huge willow tree in our backyard that loses branches daily. Gorgeous tree, annoying branches. So we put a few to good use.
The idea was from the amazing Maya of maya*made. I love her blog and her simple style. Sydney helped with the "design" and my husband and I did the rest. She was really excited to see if it would float so we headed over to the river to try it out. A smaller body of water would have worked better, but it did float. She was thrilled and wanted to hurry home and make a whole fleet!
