About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

A Day with the Trolls

   Field Trip!  The girls and I met up with some friends to spend a day with the trolls!  The day started off quite chilly, but we braved the elements and packed a picnic for the park.  By the time we opened up our PB & J's the sun was out and the weather was perfect!  After lunch we went exploring and were amazed at all the creativity around us...
This is a submarine sculpture in the goldfish pond!

   Bells that sounded heavenly in the wind.  The girls had to check it out!

   This is where we had our picnic.  Lovely.

   These are some of the fun tables where you can enjoy coffee and something sweet.  We were all impressed with the creative decor.  It was hard to decide where to sit!



   Who wouldn't want to feed this guy?  What a great idea for getting people to throw away their trash!  He was one of many...

   Katie and her friend, Ella:D

   This is called The Ballet Lesson...

   Silly girls in a swing!

   The younger set was much better behaved- lol!:)  They will still smile for pictures!

   My girls have joined a Troll Tribe!

   There were labyrinths, secret windows to peek through, hidden doors and even a Troll Door!
   The falling water was the perfect accompaniment to the park.  Very peaceful.

  Oh yes, there were dragons, too!
   What a fun day!  We can't wait to go back with Daddy!:D

Hi Lori
We really enjoyed seeing your amazing day with the trolls. What a beautiful setting and how unique. The picture where you can eat looks like you are inside a pumpkin! We love the trolls especially the ones doing ballet. The troll door is sweet. All the kids look to be having a great time. We would love to go there some day. Thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend.
Lindsay & Jessica

What did the tooth fairy bring Katie?

wow! What an amazing day. I would love to have taken my kids there...especially Curly Girl. I'm sure it would have given her loads of things to draw.
