Where’s Mr. Peabody?

Let’s see who get’s it.  I will be on spring break next week – well let me clarify that – the kids will be on spring break next week and I will be joining them.  DH cannot come with me so watch out world here she comes!  Then again, how much mischief can I get into when I will be with a 13, 11 and 4month old?

On second thought don’t answer that 😉

What’s showing?

I can only imagine how beautiful the Acadian night sky is because we always rose very early to beat crowds; by the evening it was dinner and done for the day!  To learn a little more about this historic theater – such as the theater’s founder being a convicted bootlegger who went legit after serving his time in federal prison – read here.

Oscar Nominee

Tonight is the night of the Oscar awards and I am torn between watching it to see if my favorites will win or staying with my usual Sunday night viewing of The Walking Dead.  Polar opposites don’t you think?  It is for certain that one of them will get the DVR while I enjoy the other.  But I wanted to share a couple of scenes from when we visited one of the nominee’s in the summer of 2013 – Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts.

Windmill in color with a scenic vista

Besides signs at the museum here that warned you to watch out for snakes (I kept my eyes open but was banking on them being in hibernation) and arrows directing you to stay on the walking paths, there were also signs identifying some of the plants in the area.  There were saguaro and chola cactus, Palo Verde trees and sage and jojoba bushes like the one at the bottom of the windmill to name a few.

Museum, Mountains, Mining and Elvis

The Superstition Mountain Museum has several old mining buildings, mining equipment, signs that say watch out for snakes and the chapel here known as the Elvis Chapel because he once filmed a movie here.
