I am super excited about the fact we live so close to a really unique attraction to NY. It is called Animal Adventures. It has animals from all over the world and they are available to be pet and fed and you stroll around the park. They are always improving and exhibiting new animals.
We have seen and touched animals that we would have never had the opportunity to do anywhere else in the world. What a fantastic resource. I am super thankful to the owner/founder Jordan Patch. He is an animals super hero.

When we moved back to NY, I found a great CSA that picks up at a fantastic local foods market near our home. We have been bogged down by so much vegatables I have little room in my fridge and some of it is going to waste. I love veggies, but when I get funky ones, I just have no idea what to do with them. I am looking forward to later on in the season when less greens and more actual veggies I can cook right away will start appearing in our boxes.
We are loving the fact that we already paid for all this in advanced so very little grocery money is going towards veggies now.
I also grabbed several chicks months back and raised them free range. They went to processing last week and now I have a freezer full of chicken. I am taking another batch in for processing soon as well. I have meat rabbits, that I hope will be having kits in a month, so I can then have a freezer full by winter, of rabbit. Hoping this will help cut down on meat purchases and be better for us health wise and money wise.
We were very fortunate to have had the B-29 Bomber, the last one in operation, come to our local airport for a viewing. It was a very coolsite.
I got lots of neat pictures of it and the C-47?. We were able to go inside the under belly to see the bombs and inside the cockpit. We didn’t get into the cockpit since the climb was too much for us, but it was totally worthe the hour or so wait.
The entire time we were there, they were maintaining this beautiful plane like royalty. What a treat!
Our favorite fair is the Firemans Field Days is Appalachin, NY. It is simple and fun. This time I brought the girls with us. I laughed so hard riding the twister ride over and over again my cheeks cramped up. LOL
I introduced the girls to fair food. DEEP FRIED OREO COOKIES! Nom nom nom nom. T. got to shoot a BB Gun and Paint gun, which made him happy.
We got there way early on the opening day due to lack of proper advertising for the event, so I took some realy neat pictures of the empty fair grounds and rides.

Okay, we had lots of fun this winter and early spring at our favorite local hockey teams arena. I brought my parents a few time and we got to see some gruesome action on the ice. We also had a great time at the Start Wars event they held before the game. T. even got pictures with several of the characters.
