Pickin' & Grinnin'

Maygan's the one...grinnin'
well, I must say that I have a smile on my face too

We went pickin' this morning, looking for treasures never expecting
to come toting home a Mini Rex.  Maygan has wanted a bunny forever so this was her pick of the morning at one of the sales.  She's in Bunny Love!

these are my picks of the day

and while we are talking about picking...I was serenaded last evening by the lovely sound of my
DH picking his guitar on the porch while I worked in the shade to my ears

School has been out for a week today, where does time go
Tuesday night we went on an overnight camping trip with Maygan's Girl Scout troop

Here, some of the girls are getting ready to tie dye shirts and pillow cases.  Maygan is wearing the shirt she made in the bunny photo today. 

What a great group of girls to take camping! 
oh and one honorary Girl Scout...Jay :)

On our way home from the cabin we stopped by Wildwoods Animal Park to take a tour and the troop made a donation to the animals with money they raised from their cookie sales.

Here are John & Pam with their newest addition to the park
a 10 week old cougar

The park holds an annual Native American Festival in the fall, I believe it's Labor Day Weekend.
My DH used to work with both John & Pam and has been friends with them for years.

In other news...  I am still doing work little by little to my Shanty, Maygan & I made a couple of cement Bee Skeps last weekend.  Been working on orders and am hoping to have a large handmade Facebook Update in a week or two.  I have about 42 handmades on my to do list of prims I want to make.  Haha, who am I's summertime and I don't like to be inside this time of year :)

I will say so long for now..Maygan says it's time to check on Midnight (the bunny:)
