Real Life Farm

Over Spring Break a friend invited us to join them at The Real Life Farm. What an experience! Will was able to ride a horse, feed a baby goat, milk a cow and go on a hay ride. What fun and what a learning experience. I felt sorry for the cow that had to be milked by the kiddos.

Favorite vacation spot...

We didn't go on Spring Break but I really wish we had. I am dreaming that we are at my favorite vacation spot Anna Maria Island, Florida. Of all the places we have visited it is my favorite and we hope to return soon.

What is a favorite vacation spot for you?

My new favorite comfy shoes

I have been meaning to write about my new favorite comfy shoes for some time so let me introduce you to my TOMS.

I have had my TOMS shoes since Christmas and every time I wear them I get compliments even from kids. They are very sparkly so you must like bling to appreciate them. What I love about TOMS shoes is that for every shoe they sell they give a pair to a kid in need. These shoes come in just about every color you can imagine and are available for kids and men. To me they are just fun and make a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt a bit less boring. Comfy and for a good cause what could be better?

Something I use to hate...

When I was a kid I hated wearing any type of boot but my Mom would make me wear them. Now I welcome any opportunity to put on a pair of boots. Give me rain boots, snow boots or cowboy boots and I will find an occasion to wear them even if it is just running errands.

Tell me something your Mom or Dad made you do as a kid that you hated but now you totally love it or get it?

I am looking forward to...

It is still pretty cold in Michigan but I am really looking forward to Summer. I can not wait for these flowers to be in full bloom. I don't know a lot about gardening, my philosophy is if you plant it and it comes back or stays alive plant more of it.

Do you have a garden and do you like to garden?

You Capture: Fun

Dressing up is so much fun. The hat Will is wearing was his Great Grandpa's cowboy hat. On any given day Will could be Annakin Skywalker, Spiderman, or a Cowboy. It surely is fun to be a kid.

Will's Mud and Dirt Pies

Will wanted to make some mud and dirt pies. This is so simple and fun for kids.
All you need to do is make some instant pudding and smash some oreo cookies. Then just layer the pudding and cookies and top off with some gummi worms. We made ours ahead and put them in the fridge for a few hours. Yummy!
