How do you like these mushrooms?

My garden seems to be in mushroom mode:
Enter a normal mushroom ...

And, then a little button mushroom, probably a puff ball.

Now what is this? 
Each part is larger than a dinner plate ... living under a fir tree!
 17 " across ...
Anyone know what it is?
My friend Pierre, a chef, identified my mushrooms: 
Giant Funnel Cap, Latin: Leucopaxillus Giganteus
Apparently, it is edible ... although it might cause digestive upsets.

This tiny mushroom was growing nearby ...
