Don't have much space to grow your   favorite plants? Try building a vertical   garden like this one, designed by Susie   Frazier. Using salvaged wood, threaded   rods and bolts, and a handful of mason   jars, you can construct a simple hanging   planter to add a lot of green to your   game. See original article for instructions.
These are only a few of the pins on my boards...if you are interested in seeing more of my pins, here is a link to my Pinterest boards...or you can get there from the button the side my blog site

Creation Museum...

Two weeks ago today our family headed out on a weekend trip...the first trip in a long time and a much needed change of pace for a few days! We went to the Cincinnati area to meet friends that were going that way to finish up their vacation...so we could all go to the Creation Museum together! GREAT FUN!

It is an amazing facility! The management at Answers in Genesis have developed a great museum to communicate how the accounts of the Bible are evident in the world around us. We all enjoyed our visit!

An unexpected item on display...a quilt! :) It is a greatly detailed quilt representing the 7 C's of History.

Here's what was probably my favorite part, the miniature replica displays of the Ark and the life inside the Ark. The great detail that was put into them made them fascinating to look at!



We headed outside for a bit on Saturday (it was a little warmer than Friday) to see the petting zoo...


It was great to go to an educational museum that reinforces the same things we are teaching at home! Looking forward to planning another trip out that way after the Ark Encounter is open! That trip may have to be a whole vacation! :)
