About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Seventh Week of Summer Break

This week flew by!  I seriously can't believe it's already Friday.  Kaden was on vacation on Monday so we just had a four day week, but we still packed it full of adventure!
On Tuesday we went to the library where Sam's Petting Zoo put on a show for the children.  It was a lot of fun and the best part was being able to touch the animals after the show.  I really wanted to kidnap the monkey and bring it home with me! The boys played outside in the afternoon.  Chalk and sand are two of their favorite outdoor activities.

On Wednesday, we went to see Epic at the $1 Movies.  It's fun having Mike come along with us while he's on his two week vacation.  We all enjoyed our Free Milkshakes from Arby's that afternoon. 
On Thursday, we headed to Hollywild Animal Park.  They have a huge selection of animals, more than the Greenville zoo but you definitely need to wear your rain boots.  The walking paths are rough and very muddy!  The apes were a big hit and had us laughing a lot.  The bears were really cool to see and it was fun to feed the goats and donkeys from our hands.  The safari ride was really neat and the boys had fun seeing the larger animals.  Kaden was brave enough to feed the larger animals but Bradley didn't want anything to do with them.

On Friday we went on a scavenger hunt looking for Mice on Main Street downtown Greenville.  The boys were awesome at finding all eight of the mice very quickly.  The boys cooled off at the children's water play area and had a blast getting wet by the waterfall.
