Whiff of Joy #36... a beautiful sketch by Bev. I found this October Afternoon paper and just had to grab it ~ perfect for the WOJ summer kit! I am not sure if I am liking the color combo just yet as I am not a huge fan of red.I distressed all the edges with brown corduroy distress ink. The sentiment is also from the WOJ kit. I really love coloring now that I figured out the twinkling h2o's but I am STILL waiting on them to arrive ~ about 2 months or so now!!

Anyways today is hubby's last day of vacation and we are headed to Hershey Park for the day. I hope the weather is nice and not too hot! Although they have opened the Boardwalk 2 and the kids just can't wait to go in the wave pool!

Here are a couple pictures of our day trips! This is Stony Brook Park in NY.
This is my parents, me, my two brothers and all our kids:
This is a park called Lake Tobias that has some zoo animals and a safari. You ride on a bus with no top and you get to feed the animals. The girls had so much fun.

The Scottish Highland Cattle and the Buffalo were there favorite to feed. Believe it or not they were so friendly!!

Anyways thanks for sticking with me through my long post!! I hope everyone has a fabulous Sunday!!
