We are in Pennsylvania right now, visiting my husband's family for a few days. It has been so relaxing, and I am really enjoying myself. I actually got to sleep until 8:30 the other morning, and yesterday afternoon, I (gasp!) took a 2 hour nap! As any parent of young children knows, sleep is precious, and I will gladly take it when and where I can get it!
Yesterday, we took the kiddos to the local zoo, and they had a blast!
Whoever runs this zoo is a genius. You buy food to feed the animals when you walk in the gate, and the first pen you come to is filled with hungry and adorable deer. Deedle and Princess A fed the deer all of the their food in less than five minutes.
I wanted to put this teeny tiny pony in my pocket and take it home with me. It's just the right size for Deedle!
I am with Third Grade Galore. While I have lots of creative ideas for the upcoming school year, I haven't actually started creating a stinking thing. In my defense, we have been traveling almost constantly since summer started. Maybe once we're home and settled, I'll motivate to get some things done.
A THING OF COST
I blogged about this earlier in the week, but I'm going to say it again: I am so doggone excited about my new blog design! I bought it on Tuesday, and it is supposed to be installed (for free!) in 24-48 hours...so, I'm really hoping that today is the day!
I mean, seriously. How cute???
One more thing of cost (because goodness knows, I like to buy, buy, buy!): I bought this adorable iPhone cover from Etsy the other day:
I'm usually a polka dots kind of gal, but I decided to branch out and give the chevron a go.
While my kiddos and husband are out on the four-wheeler, picking raspberries, I think I'll go pour another cup of coffee and get back to enjoying the peace and quiet that is my in-laws' front porch.
Happy Fourth of July!
