Hard to tell with the photos provided. Looks like two very small buttons starting to mature very close to the others. Features of Amanita include a cup-like volva, which is nearly underground. If you go back for more photos, need to carefully dig the fungus from a couple of inches away using a trowel. Also, photos of sliced interior would be helpful. No mention of trees or nearby shrubs given. Amanita is mycorrhizal and would need to have a nearby tree. If no nearby tree, may be a Lycoperdon (puffball).
