Day Five - Historical Tour (and bunny soaps)

Are these not the sweetest things you've ever seen? They look like chocolate, but don't eat them. They are soaps! What a beautiful addition to an Easter basket. You could use them for placecard holders at a brunch, for hostess gifts, or nestled in a vintage mini jello mold with a bit of colored grass.

Bunny soaps are the creation of my friend Kay at The Rustic Cottage. Hop on over to her blog for more info on these cuties and to see the bird soaps.

Today the tour checked into a Howard Johnson's. Makes me think of clams. I have never had clams at a Howard Johnson's though. I should put that on my Bucket List. They visited Mount Vernon, and the Capitol. Also Ford's Theatre and the Petersen House. A group photo was taken at the White House.

We received the boy's second trimester report card, and he pulled a 3.55 - that's Honor Roll. He was VERY happy when I told him the news. Hung up the phone and dissolved into tears. Thank the Lord for a patient husband!

The bunny soaps are adorable. They would certainly be cute in an Easter basket.

I read the post below and it's obvious your canine is missing your son. He is lying where he can get his scent. The week will be over soon and he will be home. Praying for a safe and enjoyable trip for him.

My 13 year old grandson, who has Asperger's Syndrome, went on his first class trip without a family member in February. We were quite anxious until he arrived safely home. He did excellent.

Blessings for a great weekend.

Hi Kim! Try to hang in there...you're at the halfway point if I'm counting correctly. :)
And yes, the bunny and birdie soaps are adorable!
