Leslie Science Center

 Some friends invited us to go to the Science Center last week.
It was great!  We saw hawks and owls, turtles, birds and lots of kinds of bugs.
Since we were in Ann Arbor we stopped by the Farmer's Market and the dairy.
Here's the post from the last time I went...I was shocked to see...2007.

Tango liked camping, until night, we tried to put his kennel in the vestibule of our tent.  He didn't like that.  He cried and then barked, which he very rarely does, so he slept in the tent with and all.
We didn't cook at camp, just brought sandwiches...lame but delicious.
We sang songs and actually slept pretty well.
The highlight for Lucy was breakfast and Noah's favorite thing was having a flashlight.

homemade bowties

I'm already starting the campaign to make my daughter-in-law love me.
I taught Noah to make fresh bowtie pasta.
In we say...nuh-nuhs.
Seriously, I could eat fresh pasta all day long.  It's one of my very favorite foods.
They didn't stay in the shape as well as dried, store bought, once they were cooked, 
but they tasted amazing.

Zoo Day

I drove down to Toledo with my kiddos, met up with a great friend, and visited the Zoo.
The country's best zoo at that.
The new aquarium was definitely a highlight.

I made it!

The binki holders, not the baby.
And Nerf Bullets galore...story of my life.

My sweet cousin's little girl.

Noah did it!  He turned 4.
There was a lot of celebration for our Bubba.
It's hard for me to believe he'll be in preschool soon.
I love his creativity and excitement for life.

Yakity Yak

Oh goodness we had fun.
We rented a place up North, in Mancelona.
We were on a lake, we spent a lot of time swimming, fishing, reading, going to Traverse City, we went to Sleeping Bear Dunes, ate a lot of yummy food.
The weather was perfect.
It was so relaxing, no one wanted to come home.

I couldn't stop thinking of lines from The Great Outdoors.
