five on friday

{1} Vacation: I have been looking forward to vacation for over a year and a half and it's almost here! We rented this house with Jon's and my parents in Bethany Beach, Delaware, for a week. If you have any fun or kid-friendly tips for the area, please let me know!

{2} New Door Hardware: Because nothing likes to go smoothly, the other day our front door knob broke and we couldn't open the front door at all. Luckily, Jon is pretty handy and was able to run to Home Depot to replace it. Now I'm daydreaming about painting the front door. I'm thinking something like this or this.

{3} Little Readers: Both of our kids are book fiends. We keep a huge pile of them in our room so that they can look through them when we get ready in the morning. One of their favorite places is the library. I'm so glad that they enjoy stories and I really hope it carries on into their teenage years.

{4} Raspberries: We planted 7 raspberry plants (3 different varieties) at the beginning of the season. Six of the plants are still in cane form so we don't anticipate any berries growing on them this season. However, we did buy one plant from a local nursery and it is well on its way to making raspberries for this summer! I can't wait to try them.

{5} Cleveland Metroparks Zoo: We have really been getting good use out of our membership. Jon takes the kids at least 2-3 times per month. We went last weekend to see the new tiger exhibit. We also fed the giraffes lettuce! The kids really enjoy the zoo and it's a nice way for us to get out of the house without having to spend money (since the membership is already paid for).
