Good morning! We had a wonderful long weekend which began at a Wildlife Ranch called the Sharkarosa.

They have many endangered and rescued animals and do a wonderful job of providing as much of a natural habitat for them, as possible.

They also have baby animals, including this little joey which was so soft.

The girls and Benjamin picked out some cute souvenirs.

On the way home I got a new Shamrock for my watergarden.

And tiny Fairy Moss.

Plenty of games were enjoyed this weekend, too. Especially Pictureka and Settlers of Catan.

Looks like a wonderful weekend! They have a safari in Oregon, but it is such a drive we haven't gone. Seeing your photos I'd love to do it, just not this summer.

Kelli,

I'll ask Bob to take pictures of the rubber stamps and I'll email them to you. I looked at the Stampin' Up catalog hoping that they still included my sets but they don't. I think I have your email address still. I'll email you the info when I get it together.

Great family fun, Kelli. I saw a Pictureka set at the thrift store and had never heard of it before. Maybe I should have taken a look.
