Adventure Days ~ Camden Aquarium – Part 1 – Camden, New Jersey

ADVENTURE DAY!!!

Went to the CAMDEN AQUARIUM in New Jersey recently!

Soooo cool!

The Penguins…. outside…

Check out that penguin over there Pa!
This is so neat!

And, Inside….. they are funny!

It’s so cool to watch them swim!

Then we entered…. the Stingray Beach Club area at the Camden Aquarium, New Jersey

It’s a Touch Exhibit!!  I can actually “touch” a stingray!

And…
Here’s Pa telling me the right way to “touch” a big stingray!  Wow!

Check out the Stingrays Pa!
Look at the size of that one Gamma!

And…. Gamma!

Look at the size of them!  Pa told me we can go to places and actually swim with them!  Like in the Grand Cayman Islands (where Pa and Gamma went), Hawaii, Florida….
I’m going to have to do some research on that!  That would be a trip filled with Adventure Days for sure!

There was an area where there were smaller ones…. so neat!

So cool to be able touch all of these animals!

This Adventure Day to Camden Aquarium, New Jersey is —

To be continued…

Joyful Journeying with Jackson!  🙂

Burnt Rabbit Fur and St. Patrick’s Cathedral ~ Adventure Days Part 3 ~ More Pics

So many pictures to share! 😉

We had such a wonderful time in New York City and Mom is quite the photographer! LOL!

She just keeps snapping away! I’m thankful for all of the pictures to share with you!

Christmas in New York City is just beautiful! Jackson was sooo excited and loved every minute of it!

We made it to FAO Schwarz! Jackson and I were both excited! 😉
Someone offered to take a picture of all of us! Yay! Mom, Jackson, the FAO Schwarz soldiers and Me too!

These guys were the best! Such happy guys to be standing outside the most popular toy store in NYC to take pictures with practically everyone that walks through those doors! They were such a delight! So glad Mom could be in the picture with us too! Thank you random stranger! 😉

We spent hours in FAO Schwarz! How could you not?!?!

Jackson “Traveling the World” with Paul Frank!
Jackson chilling out with the golden bear. 🙂

The videographer (hee hee Mom) got a little spinny with the camera…Sorry but cute! I really have to find Big so I can show Jackson the movie! He will be amazed to see Zoltar and what happened when someone wished to be big! Wait til he sees the big piano that he got to play on too! We’re off to the library to borrow that movie soon! Big Piano pictures and video coming up…

But…
First we stopped in the FAO Schweetz section of the store! Loved it!!!! We actually got chocolate covered gummy bears and had fun picking and choosing schweetz to take home with us! 😉

Jackson kept wanting Gamma to take the picture when I wasn’t looking…so he could pose! LOL!
Jackson and the very heavy real Gummy Bear!

No, we did not get one of these…it would’ve lasted forever!
He’s such a HAM! Posing by the clock! Listening to the FAO song!

Big Piano time!

I think he was a little nervous at first…but quickly realized how much fun he could have on there! He went back for a couple more turns! 😉

Phew…I’m a little pooped! But that was fun!

Lego Area!

We were now entering Lego Land in FAO Schwarz!
Cool Characters…Jackson loves Star Wars!
One of the Soldiers!
Of Course Batman!
The beautiful Statue of Liberty!

Special Kudos to all those that spend numerous hours putting together these amazing Lego sculptures! That is probably fun! Could you imagine missing pieces?!

And did we leave the best Toy Store in NYC with a nice big bag?

Of course we did! LOL! More pictures to come…

I need to get to bed! It’s too much fun blogging! I love it!

If you’re planning on visiting New York City this Christmas…then definitely check out our posts about Our Adventure Days in New York City!

Burnt Rabbit Fur and St. Patrick’s Cathedral – Adventure Days

Burnt Rabbit Fur and St. Patrick’s Cathedral ~ Adventure Days Part 2

I love having these Adventure Days with Jackson!

Apple Festival Fun! (ADVENTURE DAYS!)

Jackson painting his ‘apple!’

Fall has begun and so have the Fall Festivals! Today we went to Tabora’s Farm and Orchard for their Apple Festival! What a wonderful time!

There was creating an apple with a paper bag and paint (picture above), decorating apple cookies, apple picking, face painting, measuring with apples, and feeding goats and chickens. All of this while listening to amazing live bluegrass music.

Me reaching for that perfect Golden Delicious Apple!

We had a wonderful time!

I love family time! ❤

I absolutely love spending time with my boys!

Jackson and Daddy amongst the apples! <

 If you have ever been to Rice’s Market then you were not far from Tabora’s, or even passed it along the way!

It is a wonderful country store with loads of delicious baked goods, hot foods, deli salads, spices, candies and coffees! There are also lots of decorations for your home and even a winery area too!

It is one of my favorite places to go anytime of year! If I had to choose the best baked good in the store, I would choose the Pumpkin Bread, I get it every time I’m there! They were so busy this weekend though that they were out of it 😦 So what does that mean? It means I get to return to Tabora’s soon! Yay! 😉
I hope you have enjoyed my little review of Tabora’s Farm and Orchard and their Apple Festival! Be sure if you are in the Lehigh Valley Area to check it out and get some baked goods!
Jackson and I with our bags of apples!
Me amongst the Red Delicious Apples! 😉

Oh, by the way, I ate 1 1/2 apples on the way home and Jackson ate 1/2 of one trying to get his loose front tooth to fall out. LOL! It didn’t happen for him today, but he did enjoy that apple!

Have an awesome adventure! 
Enjoy your loved ones and everyday you have together! ❤


Can’t is NOT Part of My Vocabulary!

“Can’t is not part of my vocabulary!”

Have you ever used this line? Jackson knows it well! Haha!

Maybe to prove to someone that you are determined to be the best at anything you set your mind to?

Or maybe to your children?
     – Partly because you want to encourage them to learn to do things for themselves
        (Empowering themselves!) or maybe you are just tired of hearing the word “Can’t.”
        LOL!

We all know it can be rough day to day, but one thing to always remember is that:

“Can’t is not part of my vocabulary!”

Once you realize that you can do anything that you put your mind to, you can only soar from there!

Imagine yourself succeeding in anything you choose! Whether it be:
    
     – Your Home Business!
     – Your JOB/Career!
     – Being a great parent!
     – The list goes on and on!

Just Choose and Start Making things happen Today!

I found this great pic on Facebook today and it goes well with this post! Thanks KK! 😉
 

Did you do it? Did you CLEAR YOUR MIND OF CAN’T?

If not, read the words on the pic again!

Ok, Now that you can do anything, get out there and do something great!

Until tomorrow my friends!

Have a great day/evening! 😉
