Summer is winding down-ready or not- and we are trying to squeeze in as much fun as we can! I recently took my grandchildren to the zoo. I intended to take lots of pictures of them with the animals. Well! Neither the animals or the children were inclined to stand still long enough for photos. So, I settled for a picture at the entrance of the zoo as we left. Grace and Jonathan are striking an Olympic pose! They also had a really good time at the splash pad that is just across the street from the zoo.
Last saturday was our 6th Annual Midwest Stash Exchange fundraiser for Riley Children's Hospital. The weather was beautiful and we raised a nice amount of money for a very good cause. (Donations are still being accepted! I will wait about another week before I send the check.) Among other things, we had music, shopping, kid's games, and magic!
