Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.   Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

My lil’ heart is in a year-round school, so we get a very short summer break.  She was in school through 6/19, so we celebrated our first day of summer Wednesday by going to the local art museum, having lunch together and picking enough wild blackberries to bake a cobbler.

My lil’ heart making her own outdoor art.  My favorite piece in the place!

“Our” wild blackberry bush

Our blackberry cobbler!  Yummy!

PS – I’m currently on a mini-vacation, so I’m preparing this beforehand so I can hit “publish” and be done on Saturday.  No Saturday Savings post this weekend.

We have a drive-thru safari in a neighboring town, and I love to take my little one there during school breaks.  She goes to a year-round school, so she has breaks at different times than most schools, the upside is we get to go do things when it’s not very crowded.

Sweet lil’ baby!

Nosy bird!

This picture makes me smile – my great aunt petting the camel.  We had a great day!

Aw!  He let me hug him!

My little one had the best time – she got to pet huge camels, feed ostrich (ostriches?), deer, buffalo and camels.
