Jasper and Tanta Go To The Park

Sometimes when it’s a beautiful day I like to go to the park.  Today was just one of those days.

We had some lunch and breathed in the crisp end of summer air.

Even Bambi was enjoying this gorgeous day!

I got to climb some trees and I found a caterpillar which was kind of scary and fuzzy all at the same time!

I wish everyday was like today but with more time to enjoy every last bit of it.

I can’t wait to come back again.  This is Jasper Jinx and I’m your roving elfin on the scene!


Fairies are Fabulous…Duh!

The Fairies were in town yo!  Being that we are similar to elves in that we look like them and have pointy ears like them we decided when we were on vacation to visit “Christmas Town”.

This place was a lot of fun and a Fairy can really let loose here!

Phin thought it was hysterical to have a Giant Santa Claus in a tree.  He’s easily amused, lol.

It was a really nice day and what can I say…I love me some Fairy Magic!

I’m Green and Wicked

The girls took me to see Wicked yesterday and let me tell you I LOVED it!!!

The music was amazing.  We listened to the soundtrack in the car on the way to the theater but there is something to be said for the live action of the musical.

I had so much fun and was still cheering on Elphaba at the end!  I totally love her!!!  Do you think she would marry me?

Summer 2013 – Arts and Crafts

We traveled over to Millville, New Jersey to visit a place called Wheaton Village.


It was a hot day but all of these trees made it palatable.


They make pottery and blow their own glass.  It was very hot in the kiln but pretty awesome to watch. (p.s. This sculpture looks nothing like me!)


Okay this one might look a little like me 🙂



It was an informative trip and a lovely day to just sashay about the compound.  You should totally check it out if you live near New Jersey.  The month of July is free admission!

Summer of 2013 – Trains!!!!

We went to Strasburg to see the trains.  I wasn’t sure about this trip at first but I learned that I do have such a connection with trains I never before realized.  Maybe it’s the age thing or the fact I took my first long distance trip on a train.



They even had some funerary there which made me feel completely at home.



Shelly loves trains, as we all know, but I don’t think he was quite ready for Thomas!


Thomas was looking just a little scary when he pulled up to the station.


The train yards were his favorite.  We had a blast!  The Choo Choo Barn had full replica of the town in miniature model trains.  We had to pull Shelly away from this venue because he would have lived there forever 🙂  Good times had by all…especially Shelly!
