Out and About

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We left my husband at home and headed out of town for a few days. Here's what we've been up to.

Before we left: We did a neat "garden" craft for Unplug Your Kids that I'll have to post when I get home. I'm on dial up right now! :-)

Friday: Mainly just drove to my mom's.

Saturday: My brother came down. We were planning on camping in the backyard for National Backyard Campout (I'm not sure if I got the name right), but it stormed. Alexandra played with her cousin and the neighbor down the street and the cousins went swimming that evening (before the storms).

Sunday: My brother, sister and I went on a nature hike. It was great! We saw birds, dragonflies, a rabbit, a toad, a mouse!, and some animals in cages. I'll have to post photos when I get home. And, Alexandra and her cousin went with Grandma to American Girl place to have dinner and buy something for their dolls.

Monday: Our plan was to go to an Impressionist exhibit, but we forgot that most museums are closed on Monday! So, we ended up at the zoo. AND, I didn't have my camera! My favorite part was a "parrot" building where you could buy a stick with seeds stuck to it and FEED THE BIRDS!!! It was so fun! They actually landed on your stick and ate!!! They were beautifully colored parakeets. It was amazing!!! I can't believe I didn't have my camera. :-(

I'm not sure what we're doing the next few days. I'll try to get back on the computer in the next few days and check in. I'm not getting to read any blogs right now, but I'll catch up soon!
