Remembering Our Fallen

Today we honor all the brave men and women that served and died for our country.  This is a special day for all Americans to feel pride and remember them with a grateful heart. A day to recall the price of our freedom.  I am not posting any photos of my own today, just wishing everyone a peaceful Memorial Day.

Mommy, I love you…

These are the are the words that truly melt my heart away on a daily basis. The softness and sincerity that comes with them is so profound.  So innocent. Genuine love is pure.  Today is Mother’s Day and my birthday as well so I have a lot to celebrate.  I am still recovering from a bad case of wheezing/bronchitis, but telling myself I feel great!  I decided to post a pic of me taken yesterday to mark the happy occasion. So, today is the day you meet Snapfairy!

I thank God for blessing me with a mom that guided me and gave her all to shape me  into the  person I am today.  I am also blessed to be a mother to a sweet  little boy that is truly my pride and joy. He asked me a few days ago what I wanted for Mother’s Day,  so I told him I already had the best gift. Him of course!  Sure, presents and flowers are nice. Yet they cannot compete with the heartfelt love and warm hugs only a child can give.

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, sisters, grandmother,  friends, and mommy bloggers!  Love you all. Enjoy your day ~ although I truly think we are mothers every single day, don’t you think? momday

Fun at Liberty Science

Today I finally found time to write and post images from our recent trip to Liberty Science Center in NJ. My little one has been really sick so I have been Dr. Mom all week and I am still on watch.  This trip was great fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who has not visited yet.  The Curious George exhibition was a favorite and will be at the center until May 12, 2013 just in case anyone can make it.

The munchkins had fun using pipes,ramps, funnels, bumpers and force to experiment with physics. They played mini golf and climbed into the “rocket slide” where they took a photo of their first space adventure. After that, they walked to the “country” and visited the set up farm. They learned about cause and effect while using wind power to move windmills and wind chimes.  They were also able to play with a real rotary phone.  Ah, to be three again.

They little engineers had soaking wet fun using clamshell dredge. They used the handles to scoop out rocks and sediment and learned how to empty the bin. It is a great opportunity to teach them how dredging maintains the harbor clean and showing them just how engineers do it with these machines. The alligator snapping turtle was a favorite and so was this snapshot of a cute little turtle we met there. It appears to be walking and made the little ones chuckle. : ) CLAMD.snpa.walking.turtle.snpAlexis.sopretty.snp
