How I spent my birthday
Last Wednesday the girls and I had a day out in Williamsburg with our friend
Tiffeni. It was a nice relaxed way to celebrate my birthday (well, other than the heat that was so bad I literally saw stars and had to sit down a few times). We were fortunate to stop by our local CSA and get a tour. I didn't know we were going to the CSA but coincidentally I had the girls dressed in little farm girl outfits. How appropriate! The farm was very inspiring. Their barn and fencing were made from trees that fell during a hurricane that hit the area a couple years back. All of the crops looked amazing and the girls had a blast meeting the animals.

After the CSA we stopped by Colonial Williamsburg for some quick tree climbing and a stop at a local shop. I was determined to find a handmade cardinal ornament as my reminder of our time in Virginia (the cardinal is VA's state bird) and thought that would be the perfect place to look. Fortunately, it was! I found the sweetest hand carved wooden cardinal. He is now happily all packed away and ready for our move.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! My MIL arrived Sunday night from PA to help us out preparing for the move and to see us off. K had her first ever night away from us Sunday night. She spent the night with Grandma. It's so bittersweet. My little one is growing up so fast!
I have lots of goodies to share for WIP Wednesday. See you then!
