Weekend update: A cabin in the woods

Wasn't there a horror movie called "A Cabin in the Woods" that came out a few years ago? Our cabin was absolutely perfect, so no comparison to the movie, I promise. We rented a cabin outside of Harrisonburg, VA, only a couple of hours away from us, but it seemed like it was in a whole other world!

We were lucky enough to get a property that also had two ponies, a dozen or so chickens, and three adorable baby goats. Not only could we hear the stream rushing across the street, but Elliott was totally entertained by the animals the entire time we were there. We hiked, played in the water, took walks, and the kid slept in every single day. It was fantastic. 

We also visited the Explore More Discovery Museum in downtown Harrisonburg. It was fabulous! Absolutely perfect for preschoolers. Hands down the best museum we've visited with Elliott (and the cheapest). I highly recommend going if you're in the area. 

You should also hit up the coolest playground EVER if you happen to be passing through that area. I've never seen anything quite like Dream Come True Playground. We happened upon it by accident, but stayed for almost an hour. Separate areas for younger and older age groups, hammocks, rock walls, drawing walls, a roadway for scooters, and so much more. There's even a handicap accessible swing for wheelchairs! SO impressed. 

And finally, the biggest peanut butter and honey sandwich ever:

 We're back and I'm ready to get back into the swing of blogging. I have a few great reviews coming up this week, as well as a new feature. Check it out on Wednesday!

I also finally started a Facebook page for this blog. It only took me 6 years! If you enjoy reading the posts, head on over and "Like" me!
