Kangaroo farm

Today we went with my good friend Jen and her boys Ian and baby Ray to the Outback Kangaroo farm up north. I heard about it a few years ago and have been wanting to go. Two words, BABY KANGAROO! Oh yes! I didn't get many pics as there was a YMCA day camp tour there (at one point I over-heard the tour guide say "please shoot me now" lol) so any attempted pics were a blue - YMCA t-shirt blur but i did manage a few. All the kids loved it and again **BABY KANGAROO**. All in all it was a good day. Poor baby girl isn't feeling so great tonight; between the red cheeks & fever i'm thinking a new tooth is on it's way. wanna cheeto?
waiting for baby kanga naptime to be over
Happy 88th Birthday grandpa billy!

lazy summer days

I was reminded this weekend by an out of state auntie that I havne't blogged recently ( thank you karen!) So i'm going to post some recent pics i've been uploading to Instagram ( facebook is SO last year LOL). This week I plan to go and pick out a new cell phone and I am going to try to find one that is _smartER_ that can possibly allow me to blog.... I rarely get on my laptop (shameless plug for an ipad for my bday) which is why I've always been a big fan of FB and now instagram. Snap photo. Upload photo. DONE. If you would like to see random pics throughout the day follow me on instagram _gretchenjackson_ In the meantime hopefully these will tide you over while I work on connecting my social media networks :) Much love. xo
