Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

AKA, Sisters on a Mouse Hunt

I think every {cute} town or {touristy} city should do this.  The city of Greenville {which is a totally cute city by the way} has a Mice on Main scavenger hunt.  I have two sisters and we decided to do a sisters get-away weekend in Greenville because I knew we could get a room downtown and never have to get back in our car all a weekend.  We were within walking distance of anything we many restaurants, cute shops, a Greek Festival, a beautiful park and {if we had had the money} spa treatments!  Anyway, we soon discovered the Mice on Main and the scavenger hunt that went with it.  Mice on Main is based on the children's book Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown where there is a cute little mouse {not really} hidden on each page.  In Greenville there are 9 cute little bronze mice hidden on Main Street. 

We grabbed our clues at the General Store {Okay, not really because my sister Amy is a super planner and already had them downloaded to her iPad......which we carried up and down Main Street all day Saturday}

And, we found all 9 mouse plus and an extra one to boot!  Some are sadly missing their tails, but all were cute and it was a nice way to walk down Main Street being silly with my sisters!

This is the extra little fella, not part of the scavenger hunt.

Wasn't that fun? We did "Mice on Main" a few years ago while visiting some friends who live down there. Of course, we had to come home with the book that goes with it. :)

I loathe mice, but I think it's a very cute idea - especially since they're bronze & not scurrying about. Glad you had some quality time with your family.
