New Family at Old World Wisconsin

If you happen to be at Old World Wisconsin at around this week, checkout a new bird family at the Crossroads Village. They live inside a pole, in front of the black smith building.

Not sure what kind of bird is it. Mama bird wasn't very happy as there were so many kids peeking out... and so did I...

I managed to take a close up picture. I think the total is about 5 baby birds...only 2 birds was peeking out when I took the picture.

I really like this picture... I thought it's worth blogging...
Have fun...

Gathering Waters Festival

It's our first time to go to Gathering Waters Festival, June 16, 2009 at Lakeshore State Park.

They have activities for all age, from fishing, painting, rock climbing, geocaching, kite flying, kayaking and learning about water conservation. In addition to learning new things, I like the location the best.

I do wish they have longer hours...and yes,... I would like to visit again next year.

Teacher's gift idea

It's almost the end of the school year. We start thinking what would be an appropriate gift to the teacher? I always value hand made items... or we could always get gift cards from books stores or restaurants in the area. After brainstorming, my daughter decided that she wants to make her gift.
Wow... I'm pretty impressed. I felt I somewhat give her an artistic influence to her.

She decided to make a hand stamped necklace... wow...
As a supporting mom, I showed her how to do it. She chose aluminum disk to work with. After few stamping practice, she felt confident to do the real thing.

Here is the result...
I think it's pretty impressive for an 8 years old to make this.
Wouldn't you agree?
