Andy Quaglino

I bought these for the boys' bedroom. (prints, of course, on stretch canvas) "W" cannot wait to get them on the wall. I found them at the Tooele Arts Festival, of all places. I'm so excited about this artist. It was like he read my mind about what I was thinking for their room. Too bad I couldn't afford an original, 30"x40", amazing.

These things are awesome. "W" went in one in the mall today. He had so much fun and wanted to go again. I think I was near hyperventilating just watching him.

A Vintage Affair

I bought this book today at B&N. No recommendation or anything. But it must have been destiny, the main character's name is Phoebe and she loves vintage apparel. I kinda want to get a Nook or a Kindle...anybody else have one? Do you like it?
I'm a little torn, because there's so much beauty to appreciate in the actual books.

Animals Are Beautiful People

We stumbled upon this movie at a kids' consignment store today. It's from the maker of The Gods Must Be Crazy. "W" could not get enough of it (right up his alley)...he cried when we had to turn it off to go to bed. Not only that, it was very educational.

These are the most incredible museums/institutions I've ever been to and I believe they are all free. You could easily spend multiple days in each of them. I only made it to the Zoo, Air & Space, and Natural History, just wish we'd had more time to visit them all.

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

Something like this would be perfect in Utah. We would be there every weekend. I get tired of seeing the same old, same old at theme parks. This place was anything but ordinary, just wished it hadn't rained the first half of our visit. (They change the pattern of the corn maze every year, this is a picture of last year's)

Blue Gingham @ Target

This is what my boys wore on the 4th this year. They looked so cute! :-P to anyone who thinks I'm lame for dressing them alike.

Priceline Name Your Own Price

I admit, I've always been a little nervous to use the Name Your Own Price feauture on Priceline, no matter how many people told me how great it was. Maybe I was just scared of the commitment. But, I used it for the first time last night and I'm hooked. I got a 3 star hotel in Jersey City listed at $149 a night for $115. Can't wait to try it again.

Swim Ways Power Swimr

After buying numerous flotation devices, it's confirmed that this is the only way to go. They hold your kids up, but don't restrict movement like arm floats. I've been using them for both my kids (15 months and almost 3), different sizes, of course. It appears that my almost 3 year old will be able to swim without a floater by the end of the summer.
