I got a pedicure.

It was so relaxing.

What do you think of the color?

July = Busy

July has been a very busy month.

We travelled to Wisconsin to visit Darren's parents for a week. We stopped in the Dells for a half a day. We spent a night at the cabin (I was eaten alive by mosquitoes and frequently quoted the Parent Trap "get me outta this stinking fresh air") and went to the Minneapolis Science Center.

We returned home in time to head to Canton for Sam's 9th birthday party and Henry's 1st birthday party. On the way home from there we went to the family reunion on my mom's side of the family. It was at a park in Zanesville that I haven't been to in years...much smaller than I remember it being.

Last weekend was a birthday weekend scrapbook crop. It was so wonderful to spend a weekend crafting with friends!!!

Here are a few pictures from all of our adventures...

Aha Museum

We went with some friends to the Aha Museum in Lancaster the other day. The museum is a hands on play area with lots of pretend play areas - stage with dress up clothes, grocery store, bank, pizza shop as well as other interactive play areas like a sand table, climbing structure, face paint table...the list just goes on and on. It is a pretty cool place. Ella really enjoyed playing with Gracie and Tommy and we are looking forward to another fun get together soon.
