We spent the weekend in the Pennsylvania mountains visiting my husbands family. Every time we visit, I wish I lived on a farm. NJ is sooooo flat! We have lots of houses and tons of stores. I'm within a 15 minute or less drive from no less than 10 Walmart and me appreciate the wide space in other parts.
We also visited a very old cemetary where my father in-law is burried. It was bitter cold so the boys and I took a stroll around to look for really old headstones. I am always touched by the tiny markers of children.
This one I found really interesting because it looks like part of a tree with a little dog sitting below. He died in 1859 and his marker says " Aged 5 Years & 6 Months." Maybe it's not a tree but I'm almost positive it's a dog.
I spent the trip nerding out about mountains and fields of freshly plowed crops. The kids were probably wishing I would stop saying LOOK! I'm always afraid they won't notice these things so I feel the need to point them out.
Here he is making his macaroni/fruitloop necklace. The kids all began to eat their necklaces so most ended up with just macaroni.
I will be updating my shop this week with a bunch of ornaments and a couple of paintings so keep checking!
Have a nice day:)
