A few Saturdays ago, Anna and I took the children to Dauset Trails, a sort of outside zoo on a walking path. It was such a beautiful, warm day that we wanted to do something special outside. Sam, Ben and Emma were so excited!
Looking at the owl.
She LOVED all the animals, except one.
Ben loved feeding the goats.
Chasing the chickens.
Her reaction to the pigs.
She was so scared of the one big pig that was laying in the mud. Her reaction was so funny! Of all the animals to be afraid of- pigs!
Ben's reaction when the pig stood up and shook the mud all over Sam!
Ben has been asking me to make him a quilt ever since Sam got his last April. Ben specifically wanted a "Hulk" quilt. I could not find Hulk fabric anywhere and I looked everywhere I could.
I wanted to have his quilt ready for his birthday, so I went back to JoAnn's one last time to see what I could find. I found the Hulk on one fabric, so I got it along with other fabrics that I knew he would enjoy and started on his quilt. (See the green Hulk in the picture below?)
It came out cute. Not quite what I envisioned in my head, but I was happy with it.
I found a really cute flannel backing with different cute monsters on it.
It even had Buzz Lightyear!
His reaction to it at his party made the late hours I spent working on it worth it.
I hope he has many years of enjoyment using it. Next project? A cute baby boy quilt and then a Dora/Elmo quilt for Emma. And Ellie hinted that I haven't made her a quilt since she was a newborn. Hmmmm. Maybe for her birthday next year- I don't think I can pull it off in time for this years birthday. Or can I????
