Happy 4th of July

"Lets celebrate our beautiful country and be thankful for its abundant blessings." ~Mama Hen 
Little Chick, Grandma Hen and I saw the fireworks last night and they were magnificent! It was an absolutely beautiful day! After the stormy weather we had the past couple of days, we made sure to head out and celebrate our amazing country at the beach, with family, watching the fireworks. Little Chick had a wonderful idea as the fireworks put on such a gorgeous show. She said, "Maybe one day they will invent fireworks so that they will transfer into a horse shape." I thought that was a brilliant idea!

Fun in the Sun with Friends

"Take time to smell the salt air and explore the beach this summer.
These are the memories that will be most cherished." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick and I spent the day at Sherwood Island with friends. She had so much fun swimming with her buddies and exploring the jetty. Of course we had to stop for a refreshing frozen lemonade on the way home. This is what summer is all about!

June Summer Fun

"Summer is a time for outdoor fun and games. Make the best of the season by soaking in the sun and the fun!" ~Mama Hen
Little Chick has been busy this summer. She has been reading a lot and is ahead of the reading challenge at the library. I am such a proud mama! Last week she reached 1200 minutes on Tuesday and then read up to 1500 by Thursday morning. She was excited when she saw that one of her prizes was a voucher for a kids Subway meal. We went to Subway right away to redeem her cool prizes. Little Chick earned some money washing my car. She did a fantastic job! She spent the day at the beach with her buddies last week and had a lot of fun at Brownies this morning. Our troop is working on the Wonderful World of Water and the girls made cute boats and had boat races together. They also worked on the water cycle and learned a nifty song to help them remember all about it. They had a jar of water and checked how much water evaporated each hour and they made rainbows using dye. It has been a busy and fun beginning of summer!

A Purposeful Life

"Live your life purposefully and fill it with lots of adventure." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick and I love to live each moment to the fullest and take lots of adventures. God has blessed us all with such abundant gifts of nature. We love soaking it all in. Today we took a day trip to East Haddam and tried a new hiking trail at Devil's Hopyard. It was so much fun! Our friends joined us with their new puppy, Skipper. Gigi and Skipper became good friends while hiking the trail along with us. We saw a beautiful waterfall and ate our picnic lunch on a rock that overlooked the cascading water. After our morning of hiking we headed to Gillette Castle to walk around and to go inside William Gillette's castle. It was a lot of fun! On our drive home Gigi and Little Chick were really pooped out. It was a fantastic day!
