Cathedral Caverns

We have lived within 45 mins of such a magnificent place. 
Cathedral Caverns in Grant is the most AMAZING place. If you are local, you should go!  The cave is huge and the history is amazing!! 

Grant also has an over look that is a great photo op. ;-) 






When we got to our destination, we were about an hour early.  We shopped in the gift shop and check out the beautiful butterfly. 


Sophie Clare got a cool miners hat and she loved it!! 




The cave opening was huge!! 
At the end of the blog post there is a good pic of the opening. 











I was telling Sophie Clare if I was home schooling her, this would be an amazing science lesson. 
  I wanted her to know the difference between stalactites and stalagmites.
 She loves non-fiction. 


This was the old bridge that the man that discovered used to explore. 



This was beautiful! 






The mans wife did not approve of his cave venture but 2 years later she decided to go into the cave. She fell in love with this room. It was amazing!! She was a photographer and loved to photograph Cathedrals. When she went into this room, she saw colums and organ pipes.










We  had such a good time and I am so glad that we were able to see this amazing creation. 

Summer Library Fun

From the time that Sophie Clare has been born and able to participate, we have always went to the library. We loved story time and lunch with our sweet friends.  Then when we started school, we would go to the Summer reading program in Gadsden. This is the first year that we did not go. I am not sure why but next year we will make a point.  We did go to the local Sardis library a couple of times. 

The first time we went, we learned about how dogs were trained. 



The next time, we were meeting April, Luke and Lila. Sophie Clare was excited to see them, it had been awhile. 



3 cuties united. 


Lot of cool stuff about how Indians made their weapons and how long it took to make things. 




They are all getting so big! I am thankful for there friendship!

Clean Teeth and Chuck E Cheese Fun

When we got back from the beach it was life slapping us in the face. haha  Back to appointments amd trying to get everything together before school started.  Although, this little girl loves the dentist so it is no bigger to her.  



She has lost a total of 7 teeth and one is dangling by a thread. 
She was cavity free and had a great visit. 


Jamie met us in Trussville after we finished at the dentist and Target.  We had a yummy lunch at Red Robin. 


I told Sophie Clare that I was pretending to be in New York. 


After lunch the fun did not stop, we were off to Chuck E Cheese. 





She wanted to ride the choo choo train and was just about to long for it. 




She made it work and loved it! 


Then it was off to Leeds for a little shopping. Jamie and I are walking along and she is behind me doing this............Hey momma, take my picture.  



It was a good day and fun was had by all.
