Thankful Thursday ~ 7/11/19

~Hubby's vacation week!  Last week was all about family time.  The number of summer vacation we get to spend with our girls is dwindling as they grow up and that makes me a bit sad but we had a great week :)

~Lake Tobias!  Lake Tobias is a wildlife park in Halifax, PA.  I had never heard of it before Laken went on a field trip to there this past school year.  We made the 3 hour drive to Lake Tobias Wildlife Park so Laken could be our tour guide.  We even went on a safari where the animal came right up to the safari vehicle.  It was amazing to see all the animals and so close :)

~The Meg!  One evening we rented a movie from the Redbox and had a Family Movie night complete with Twizzlers :)  The Meg was a great movie but don't watch it if you already have a fear of sharks!  :)

~Ice Cream!  Of course we hit up our favorite ice cream spot a few times while on vacation.  Sundae's has THE BEST peanut butter sundae I've ever had.  Yummm…  The flavor of the week was Black Raspberry.  It switched over to Cotton Candy on Monday.  Laken is pleading for another ice cream trip as Cotton Candy is her FAVORITE :)

~Camping!  We went tent camping for 3 days and 2 nights at Shawnee State Park here in PA.  We set up two tents and 4 air mattresses in 1.5 hours flat!  It was a good thing we were so quick about it because a rain shower came not long after the last tent peg was pounded into the ground.  We had so much fun camping.  It was a nice relaxing time of fishing, reading, hiking and sitting around the campfire.  I can't wait to go again :)
What are you thankful for today?


P.S.  I hope you can stop by my ETSY SHOP!


  1. I have a love / hate thing with camping. Give me all the comfort of a bathroom & AC, but I love the outdoors & time with just simple things in life.

  2. I've always heard great things about Shawnee State Park, but have never made it there. Perhaps one of these days. It's not like it's on the other side of the world.

    Jaws gave me a healthy fear of sharks way back in the 70s that has never gone away (and the news this summer is reinforcing it!), so it's highly unlikely I'll watch the Meg. You never know, though, since I fear snakes even more and my family got me to watch Anaconda. More than once.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. Have a great day!

  3. Camping and a safari sound fabulous reasons to me! Thanks for joining in x
