    I love a big spacious mat on a framed image and these from studio mcgee x target are not bad for a kids room/mudroom!  And how smart is this set?

    Really love the swimming hole and waterfall here!  Could we just bring our kiddos and hang out together? It’s booked so far in advance though :(

    It’s fun to talk about books with children!

    Did you know you can foster kittens in Lexington?  The humane society gives you training and supplies – we do it occasionally and have learned so much! The littlest ones have you up around the clock on a schedule but once they can eat on their own it’s a bit simpler.  For us, being a household with pet allergies (we keep them to one room) and lots of travel, this has been a great way to help and also giggle even more throughout the day.
