1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 23 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by stellato_escuro on: July 20, 2016 07:22:49 AM
I am so jealous of Tree right now...that shop looks awesome!!

Aurora has been having fun as well. Two weeks ago, she came with us on a family camping trip to Emerald Lake.




She also stopped with us at the Fishtail General store to get food and a gift to bring home after her travels.


Just this past weekend, she also went backpacking. My husband and I hiked up to Blue Lake in the Crazies. Here we are surveying the part of the trail we already covered.


She also approved of the very small tent.


And a view from (almost) the top. We started at 6,500 feet elevation and topped out at 8,300. This picture was taken around 8,000 feet. The bottom of the valley where the trees turn into a field is where the truck was parked.

WE ARE FINALLY DOING SOMETHING COOL!!!

Our summer had a slow start because of so many things we had to stay home for. And kiddos getting sick too. :/ But now we finally get to go CAMPING! Aurora was helping us load last night. Looking at this picture now, I am realizing I should've backed up more for context. But here she is sitting in the doorway of the camper. She is so excited, she spent all night in the truck waiting. Smiley


We will be out of contact for several days. But we will have TONS of pics when we return next week. And hopefully some cool treasures, too.

Aurora was a super helper this past week. There is a park right across from our house and for ten weeks in summer, Monday through Friday, they give free lunch to every kid 18 and under. Since I take both kids nearly every day, I wanted to add something to it. So I gathered up books, sorted them into bins and have been giving them away to the kids during lunch. My little visitor was a book ambassador!



She may have also done some reading herself. Smiley

After this week, she will be CRAZY busy. Two or three camping trips, a trip to my grandparents cattle ranch, an art auction, an art fair, day trip to a sculpture garden...plus whatever we do in between. I may have to make her a little backpack. Smiley

Well, Aurora had a strong start with us, and than illness struck. Me, my husband and both kids went through a varying combination of sinus infections, ear infections, mystery stomach bugs and migraines. That led us to a total of three doctors appointments and one ER visit. BUT we are all feeling 100% now, and Aurora is reaping the benefits.


Last Friday (when Eric and L were still sick), I grabbed Q and Aurora and hit garage sales. Look at all the books she helped me find!


Kindergraten ended last week, so Tuesday we had a fun day out and about. We started at the children's museum. All of us really enjoyed this sand table. There was a projection on it with a relief map that changed as the sand moved. We all built little islands together.


We also went out to lunch at my favorite place. Aurora got to share with all of us: chicken quesadilla, mac and cheese and a thai wrap.


She also got to take in local art at the table. We did go to the library and garden center as well, but she was napping in the car. But there will be pics tomorrow when she goes to the bookmobile

I am glad to see Tree has been having lots of fun. She loves deer, so I am happy she was able to spot one there. Smiley I think both our LVs are gonna have a great summer.

Everyone's goodies are so delightful! I think this swap was perfectly timed against warm weather moving in. I got my box today and took it outside to open it because it felt so ncie to finally get outside. So here we go...


All the goodies together. Sweet summery stickers, yellow straws, tissues (which I immediately cracked into) and a little bundle of packages.


And those packages were bundled with this little charm. It even says "kind" on the back. I can't wait to add it to a necklace. Smiley


My son was VERY excited about the whole thing and very promptly helped with the twine.


The first two packages had a bracelet and earrings. I love that the butterflies on the earrings are different colors. <3 Also, the chain has tiny little rhinestones hanging off of it.


And a coordinating necklace! my son saw the tassel and said "I love that color! I want to try on the necklace. Pleeaaaaassse". So here it is, being modeled. It is soooo pretty and colorful and perfect, I want to wear it everyday!! I am going to wear the necklace tomorow at Art Walk. Thank you so much Sheridan. You crushed it...this was literally the very high highlight of a long, crappy week. Smiley

I am a dingus!! Aurora arrived last week and has already enjoyed some outings with us. BUT I posted my pic in the original thread, not the gallery. So time for a repost in the right spot:

Aurora arrived safely at our house, and she was even nice enough to save some of her travel snacks for us! She arrived just in time, too. L and I went out for a date night, and Aurora came along for mexican food, ice cream and a percussion recital.



The next morning, she even came with us to the school bus stop. L and I agreed though it is probably not a great idea to take a bear to school. Or, more likely, I don't trust a pack of six-year-olds with someones elses toy. Smiley I think we are going to have a lot of fun.

I haven't done this swap since round 5, so it is time to do it up again! This time, I am involving my daughter. I figured it would be fun for her to learn about a new place through one of her dolls. So here is our little visitor, Tree, getting all pumped up for her trip.

Earlier this week, I got a package from Anna_Wahnsinn. She granted my wish for jewelry because you can never have too much jewelry. So here is all the goodness...


Three bracelets and the (much coveted) peacock earrings. Everything is so lovely and a perfect fit! Thank you Anna. Smiley

I got a package in the mail! Rscowtown put together an awesome little bundle of fabric. And it's just in time too because I am feeling the sewing itch.



I think the blue on the far right is my fave. Thanks so much rscowtown!!
