At the beginning of the summer, the kids and I made a pact to hit up as many parks as possible before school was back in session. We’ve hit up over a dozen so far and it has been so much fun! I’ve been giving the kids free rein on deciding where we end up with the only stipulation being no parking / admission fees. We’ve discovered creeks, bridges, stone stairways, swimming holes and the ideal picnic site. Sometimes I daydream of living somewhere more scenic, more exotic but our recent nature walks have brought on a new appreciation for this place we call home.
A few smile-worthy links from around the web…
*…and now I want to explore more of Weird Ohio.
*A portable, suspended treehouse.
*Ikea ranked “highest in customer satisfaction with kitchen cabinets” in J.D. Power study. (You can see how Ikea stands up to other brands here.)
*Love this look.
*Gray-green in the kitchen is hot right now.
Have a wonderful weekend! Maybe squeeze in a nature walk.
