Landon has been wanting to make a pine cone bird feeder for several months now. Every single day he brings a couple of pine cones back home from our walks and asks if we can make one. I always forget to pick up bird seed when we are at the store. I remember as soon as we are pulling out of the parking lot. Running back into the store is not an option for the sake of my sanity. I would hate to hear the whining for a second time as to why he can't have a certain toy or a bag of Skittles. Once per store outing is enough for this mommy! I finally remembered the bird seed before we hit the check out lane on our last trip to the store. Landon was thrilled to pieces when I told him that we were going to make his bird feeder.

We then topped the afternoon off with a picnic lunch. It was Landon's idea of a perfect afternoon and I have to agree!
I'm still not entirely sure whether pine cone is one word or two. I spent more time googling that topic than I care to admit to and I still do not know the answer. I decided to make it two words since I have always done it that way. If anyone knows the answer, then feel free to say so in a comment! It would put my mind at rest.
