The boys and I love a good adventure. Last week our adventure exceeded our expectations. Our trip took us just over the border to South Carolina to visit the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. I kept feeling myself wanting to turn to someone and say, “isn’t this amazing?” I did actually say that to Gress at one point and he wholeheartedly agreed. They had a little museum with sounds, real life animals, and a touch table where the boys could go crazy exploring. Then there was the breathtaking drive through the preserve where we saw birds we have never seen before and lost count of the alligators that went floating by. Mcree kept repeating, “we are on an adventure”, probably because on our drive through the preserve the boys head their heads and the better part of their bodies hanging out the windows. It was a boy’s playground for sure! And a place we will surely be visiting many times to come.
We also went to the farm this last weekend to pick up our yummy vegetables. For the past few weeks they have an animal out to pet, look at or cuddle with. This week it was ducks. The boys loved them. Mcree might have loved them a little too much (poor ducks). I cringed every time he would pick one up and then cringe again when he would toss it back down. Let’s just say he doesn’t have the gentlest touch. It’s always an adventure at the farm and it was extra rainy this week which just added to the fun! (If you are wondering what is on Mcree’s face, he decided to let one of the piglets kiss him!).
We also had a church picnic Sunday. Because our church has grown to 3 services, we rarely get to see everyone so it was great to catch up with so many families and friends. The boys loved having their faces painted and getting to play with many of their friends.
And our favorite person celebrated a birthday this week. Happy Birthday Radford. We are so lucky to share our lives with you! And thanks for having a birthday so we could have our yearly serving of your favorite desert, Boston Creme Pie!!
