The kids had a blast sledding…Me a nervous wreck.  We have this huge hill at a local park where the kids like to run down, ride their bikes down…and now go sledding.  I had to keep telling myself that it would be OK and that this was just winter fun. I am still not sure… Continue reading Sledding

Science Center

Journaling: We decided to check out the Science Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  We were only able to check out a few of the exhibits before Aidan ran through a low door opening without ducking.  After getting him bandaged up and filling out an accident report, the kids were ready to go home. ***Photos from… Continue reading Science Center

Cincinnati Zoo Layout

This layout from the Cincinnati Zoo is one of my favorites.  I love how this zoo allows people to interact with the animals.  The kids enjoyed feeding the giraffes and the birds.  They even got into a little tickling match with the birds.  I remember this day because my children were just giggling and giggling… Continue reading Cincinnati Zoo Layout

Avenger Blanket – Loki (8 of 10)

I made the Loki square using Impeccable & Vanna yarn from Michael’s.  I think this square had the least amount of color changes.  I am very happy with the blue that I picked out for the background.  I almost went with a lighter color, but I don’t think it would have turned out as well. … Continue reading Avenger Blanket – Loki (8 of 10)
