it's a zoo around here

perhaps it was our trip to the zoo last week . . . (see above FAMILY photo of bryce brushing the goats)

or perhaps it was my fit of cleaning-out my scrapdesk. . .

or perhaps it was because there were seven children playing at my house today . . .

but i felt the need to use this WILD paper to make some cards.

A fun way to feed the birds!

Laura had a great recipe for feeding the birds in North Carolina. Take stale white bread (we actually bought a fresh loaf and laid it out to get dried up), cover with peanut butter and roll in bird seed. We poked a hole in the bread, pushed twine through and hung the bread from tree branches. It was a blast! The picture below shows our assembly line!

Feed the Birds!

North Carolina

When you live in SW Florida you are use to the heat and humidity. Heading to the Smoky Mountains in NC is always a cool relief, but this year we managed to arrive in time for a major heat wave!!! In spite of the heat, we had a great time with family. Lots of fun pictures to scrapbook too! I'll post some more pictures so you can see all the fun!
