Right beside our house is the entry to the galloping goose where this stands. Every few months it changes. As Astraya and I walked over the overpass we stopped and sat for about 15 minutes watching the cars and trucks go underneath us. She loved it. Several people walked by us and smiled, one man said “that is beautiful“. A tear rolled down my cheek after a few minutes because of the wonderment in this moment for my daughter. She was having a blast at the simplest thing and it also made me sad to think of the person who lost their life for this to be built. I hope you each get to share a moment so special with someone you care about today too. #grateful#lucky#smile#bethankful

Bugs B Gone!
According to Scientific America in a study on DEET, 25% of people who used it had negative side effects. Another study found frequent and prolonged exposure led to brain cell death in rats and concluded humans should stay away from products containing it.
Luckily I found a tried-and-true all-natural recipe safe for babies and families and I want to share it with you! This is a must have if you are heading in to the mainland as those bugs can be extra nasty!
In a 4oz glass spray bottle:
For children 6-24 months:
2 tbsp Witch hazel
1 tbsp Aloe Vera
1/2 tsp vegetable glycerin
5 drops cedarwood Essential oil
10 drops Citronella essential oil
5 drops sweet orange essential oil
Top with filtered water
My friend is currently using it in the kootneys and says it’s working great on those huge mosquitos!
