Letterboxing








On Sunday B and I decided it was high time we did some more letterboxing! It’s been over a year, and we decided to make new stamps for the occasion. If you’re unfamiliar with letterboxing here is a little blurb from letterboxing.org LETTERBOXING is an intriguing pastime combining navigational skills and rubber stamp artistry in a charming “treasure hunt” style outdoor quest. A wide variety of adventures can be found to suit all ages and experience levels
You can read about the first time we went out back in 2009 here.
We went in search of six different letterboxes and unfortunately we were only able to find two. It looked like the rest were missing in action. But we can’t wait to get back out there and try a different area next time.

Legos in Virginia



Last weekend B and I drove to Katie’s house in Harpersferry WV. We got to check out her garden, say hello to their chickens and then we all headed out in her car to Leesburg VA. A boy scout troop was putting on a lego event called Scouting For Bricks. It was lots of fun, like a smaller version of brickfair, but way less crowded.
There was lots of exhibitors with fun lego creations to look at, and lego vendors selling all sorts of fun goodies. The boys loved it. They didn’t get to attend brick fair together since we went on different days, so it was nice for them to get to talk to each other about everything as they saw it. They took some photos of the stuff they really loved, and things they might like to recreate for playing.
Afterwards we headed to Purcellville VA and had lunch at The Magnolia Mill. It was such a cute little town so we walked around after lunch checking out all the little shops. It was such a nice day out, sunny but still cool enough to feel comfortable in a sweatshirt, my favorite kind of weather.
