Lions and Tiger and Bears, Oh My!

One of the things that we have always liked about the part of Ohio that we were from is all the great places to go hiking. Just with in a few minutes of each other are John Bryan, Glen Helen, and Clifton Gorge. Since the Little Red Hen had her In-Laws with her, and Grandma VO could use some piece (I mean peace) and quiet we decided to go for a hike. The little girls fell asleep on the way there so we mommies hung out at the cars while the girls napped. Uncle Dan, Grandpa and Grandma G took the troops for the hike.

Ya gotta love all the fun of climbing and getting to explore caves. The Master, my nephews nickname, even got to find a "wild bear" (Uncle Dan).

Park it!

We took all the cousins to the park to play. It was chaos in motion, but lots of fun!


Slides are fun!

How do you play?

There was lots of fun to be had when we had our visit with the cousins at Grandma's house. Stuntwoman and Little Miss loved playing together. (Do ya think they might have learned about talking on the phone from their mommies?)

The boys did what boys love to do. Yep, you guessed it, they were TV zombies.

And of course the mommies had to have fun too. We raided Grandma's fabric stash! We also sorted through the button boxes. Check out the Little Red Hen's blog to see the cool bracelet she made with some of her buttons.

Happy 4th and Happy Blogiversary

Wow! Has it been a whole year since we moved to Nashville? Guess so!

This year for the 4th of July we were in Ohio visiting Grandma and our "Canadian" cousins.

We got to go to the parade in the town I grew up in on the 4th. It has always been one of my most favorite things about coming from a smallish town. The parade is a true slice of Americana; marching bands, civic groups, business people, politicians, churches, and lots of fun!

Cowboy had the best quote about all the candy he and his siblings collected, "It's like trick or treating, except the houses are coming to you!"

Hope y'all had a great 4th!
