Mushrooms in the lawn

As I was leaving in my car for work this morning I glanced back at the yard. I thought someone had littered the yard with trash. I figured I'd take care of it when I got home.
When I got home this afternoon it had grown. It wasn't trash at all but mushrooms!
This isn't an unusual sight in the spring but it is for the middle of July.
I know a lot of people are complaining about the cool wet summer we are having but I am in heaven! If I could order the weather this would be my summer. I can count on one hand how many days we have run the air conditioner. The windows are opened all day and night and the fresh air is wonderful.
I took my camera outside and laid down in the grass trying to be artistic.
This was my favorite mushroom.

And here's the same mushroom to give you an idea how big it was.

And if it rains, you could almost use it as an umbrella! Man, that's a big mushroom!
