The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 29

The Good:
3 years ago,right after Ronan was born I heard about the Mix 104.1 Radiothon for Children's Hospital. I became a Dream Maker on the spot - making a monthly donation towards patient care and medical advancements. This year, I volunteered by manning the phones. It was so awesome to be there, taking calls, being a part of the live radio show (my fav am show - Karson and Kennedy). Good to know I made a difference in helping raise money for the #1 children's hospital in the country!

The Random:
When I made my jam, I planned to make strawberry ice cubes from the berry juice I strained out. I didn't plan ahead and had no empty ice cube trays. But then I remembered that when I was in NYC in May my mom bought me this fantastic 50 (well really 48) state ice cube mold at Fishs Eddy. So the Berry Ice States of America it is!

The Fun:
I went to the rock gym with Ben on Monday. We only did the bouldering walls and I am HOOKED. I bought a summer membership and plan on spending many a day there.

Rock climbing gyms are addictive! We used to go to one regularly, but it was expensive and an hour away...

Which state will you use first?

Volunteering for a good cause is such a worthy way to spend time!

Fishes Eddy always has cool items for sale--this is a fun ice tray!

Rock climbing is good exercise--when you get good at it come out to Colorado and climb some real rocks ;)

I love rock-climbing, but haven't been on in a while now, though. Hoping to get back on one of these days.
