Heritage Park and Splash pad

Last Wed., my hubby, kids and I met up with my sis-in-law Kelly.  Kelly lives an hour away from us so we try to find a meeting place that is half way for both of us.  I wanted to find somewhere outside that would also provide fun for the kids, and came up with Heritage Park in Farmington, MI.  This park had lots of walking paths, a nature center, a playground and slash pad.  It sounded like lots of fun (plus it was free!).  I suggested it to Kelly and she thought it would be a great place!

This was off a walking trail behind the nature center

Overall we had a great time!  This is definitely a place that will be on our list for future visits.

Flexi clip giveaway!

I know I haven't blogged in a little while but I wanted to let everyone know about a giveaway that one of my friend's is doing on her blog, Living and Learning at Home.  The giveaway is for a Flexi clip and these clips are all so pretty!  I have seen them before but didn't know much about them until she did a review.  I hope that I win!  But if not, I might end up buying one cause they look so cool.  Definitely not your standard ponytail holder.

at the county fair.....

This past Monday, I took the kids to our county fair.  The fair is at the north end of the county and we are at the south end, so it took us about 45 minutes to get there.  We met up with my sister, since she also loves the fair.  I used to know so many people when I would go to the fair but since I have been out of 4-H for *Ten* years, I don't know as many people.  We still had lots of fun and the kids loved all the animals.

More Cows!


In one of the tents, there was an educational exhibit for young children that was put on by the local metropark.  My kids loved this exhibit and I think it was their favorite part of the fair.  This exhibit allowed the kids to collect eggs, pick apples, pull up carrots and milk a "cow".

Good times are always had at the county fair!
