7QT: About Detroit from our Vacation

We Went on Vacation to my Dad's Hometown of Detroit, Home of my Favorite Sports Team So I did my nails all special.  :) - 1 - The 5 Hour Drive Wasn't So Bad The key is to be prepared.  I squished in the back between the carseats, my dad drove, and my husband sat up in the passenger seat.  It was tight, but I think my kids felt better having me right there, and there wasn't room for me anywhere else anyway.  I gave both of them a goodie bag with special surprises including books, … [Read more...]

First #ZooDay of the Year! {Photo Dump}

Have I mentioned that I love going to the zoo?  It's true.  It's one of my favorite things: outside, awesome animals, kids LOVE it, and because my lovely mom gets me a membership for my birthday every year, it's pretty much free.  We *did* buy those ridiculously expensive souvenir cups for Hobbs and myself on our first visit, but that was only because we can bring them back every time in 2015 to get free refills all over the zoo.  Since we go so often, we'd be losing money NOT buying them.  I'm … [Read more...]
