We were lucky enough to see two bats hibernating. Their population is dwindling due to a deadly fungus. The formations and history were awesome. They have a rock and mineral gift shop as well as an antique shop to browse too. Just beware of the real cats hiding in the rows, they might suddenly move and make you jump 10 feet. 🙂
Penny stayed home for the kayak trip so we could get the hang of it. We took her to the park after. 🙂
The Salem Art Center put together a painting and hot chocolate fundraiser for Toys 4 Tots. I was a sponsor and also helped out at the event. There were 130 kids that donated toys and then got to paint their own painting and drink hot chocolate!
What a fun event for such a good cause!
Penny loved it.
Our front door!
Dinner at the Green Goat! Yumm!
We bought it to go and the cashier asked if I needed a fork. The lady behind me started to laugh. I said I didn’t need a fork. The cashier says to us all that we would be surprised at how many people can’t wait until they get home to eat their dessert!
Me: Oh I’m not waiting until I get home, I just don’t need a fork! 😀

I keep it classy. 😉
