My daughter found this stick while we were walking to pick up my other daughter from school one day. I asked her if that was her hiking stick and she said yes. Then I suggested that we paint it and make it pretty. Of course, we had to do it as soon as we got home.
We actually had this other, large stick in our garage for quite some time. Perfect for my other daughter to have and paint.
This was something that was actually on our to do list for this summer, but, we never got around to it. We are having our Indian Summer and the weather has been PERFECT!
