DINO-Mite - The Dinos Are Here!

The dinosaurs have arrived in Durham!

We've been eagerly awaiting the opening of the new and improved dinosaur trail for quite a while and this weekend was the grand opening! I remember visiting the original dinosaur trail at the Durham Museum of Life and Science when I was a child, but the original trail, opened in 1967, was destroyed when hurricane Fran hit in 1996. The museum has been raising money and working on the new trail for a while, and we've been anticipating the opening for years!

The little guy met up with his two best buds from school (I call them the 3 Musketeers) and we spent the afternoon climbing on a dinosaur, digging for fossils and walking the trail. I even walked the little man down to see the brontosaurus from the original dinosaur trail I used to visit, currently undergoing repairs because of vandalism (read story here). He said it was the coolest dinosaur of all!

I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot more time there in the coming years.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
