Making the most of the rest of summer vacation....

Today we took a trip to the Enchanted Forest in Salem and then went to Silver Creek Falls. What a lovely day....and a big one for dd, who is almost 9yo. She's never been one for rides at amusement parks, and we've never forced her....and she's still a bit afraid of the dark....but today she went on the log ride and loved it! We were very proud of her for even trying it....but she still didn't like going into all the weird little fairy tale houses that were there, and I can't really blame her. This is a child who wasn't raised on the scary Grimm's-type fairy tales but on the more benign Disney stories....
After that we went to Silver Creek Falls Park and did some hiking and exploring, really fun.
I hope you're all making the most of your last days of summer and making some memories with your families......oh and make sure you head on over to 52flea! She's having a fantastic giveaway and even offering to be your personal shopper! How cool is that?
