Tearoom, Herb Farm and Birthday







wow, my daughter, michelle turned 30 on the 5th of may. seems so odd. my son jesse, turned 30 last year, but for some reason that didn't bug me like this. my youngest son tommy turns 30 next year. and yes, you are reading right. my youngest son was born the day before my oldest turned 2 and in between, michelle was born. lol anyway, back to the subject i want to share with you. every year we take a day to celebrate michelle's birthday and go to a special tearoom at salisbury, il and then take a trip to the herb farm near there. both places are so very special. if you click on the highlighted words the link takes you to each spots webpage, and both include virtual tours. last year my brother eric joined michelle and i on our journey and this year he is joining us again plus, my new daughter in law lisa is coming too! this will be here first trip there.



thought you might enjoy some pics from last year. the one pic is the checkerboard thyme garden, another is the huge wisteria they have shaped into a wonderful huge gazebo like structure and then the other is michelle. there are so many themed garden within the farms gardens. fairy gardens, lovers, thyme, a klitchy little bathroom garden, a childrens garden, medicinal, culinary and others! looking forward to this very much! :)

It isn't fair that you have a tearoom and an herb farm close to you! You have too much fun! LOL! You were busy for awhile with the kiddos! Now hopefully their offspring will keep you entertained.

lol! wish you could join us nancy!:) hmmm entertained, i don't know about that, but i do know this granny/nanny is thoroughly exhausted here on friday nite!lol been a long week, but honestly, i feel so blessed to be able to help my kids out by tending their kids while they work. they are only little for such a brief time, and so very soon grandma will not be as near as interesting as friends etc. so i am going to enjoy it while i can! lol there will be time to rest when they are all in school!! lol thanks for visiting!! big hugs to you:)

I think anything you do to influence your grandkids is a good thing and you are correct the time will come when you will be at the bottom of the food chain! LOL! I watched my best friend's daughter until recently and while she wants to see us, the friends are the greater pull! Boredom is the operative word.
