Time out.

Brody threw a cup at Riley the other day and so I sent him to "time out"...not sure if he knew what it was, but when I told him to go to time out, he walked right over to the time out corner and sat down. Well, he looked so cute I had to take some picts.

Dirt cake, bowling, presents...

Happy Birthday my sweet boy... I love you so much. This has been such a fun birthday. We decided to have a bowling birthday party with some of your friends on Saturday and boy did you guys have fun. None of you had ever bowled before and it was hysterical to see you all try your hearts out.
On Sunday we had Nanna, PopPop, Bubbles, Pat Pat, Uncle Ryan and Aunt Lori over for a family birthday party and that was lots of fun had such a great time. You got so many fun presents and were so thankful for each and every one!
I told you a couple of months ago that on the morning of your birthday I would let you have anything you wanted for breakfast and you told me that you wanted icecream, well ICECREAM it is! What a fun way to start your birthday...and a fun tradition we will always continue.

Something cool...

After I published my last post, I noticed a note from Picassa (they are an online site where you can create albums of your photos...etc). They created albums of all the photos I have uploaded to my blog...pretty cool huh.

Thought of the day... a dogs mouth actually cleaner than a humans...I hope so. LOL! :)

Where I am finding Inspiration these days...

These are just a few places I am finding my inspiration these days... Fashion Camp (I "sew" want to take my girlfriends here and make one of these bags...), Heather Bailey (love her fabrics, patterns and her photography), Blissful Living (this is the coolest...wish it was closer to us...Kim, when you move out there to AZ, I am so coming to visit and we are going here!!!!!!!!!!!!), Cat Scrap (my new favorite digital scrapbooking site) and Reusable Bags (I just ordered one that I am going to embellish then use for groceries and shopping etc...). This should keep me busy for a while...

Inspiration delivered...

I decided I needed some new inspiration... I had been scrapping old photos and have lost my creative mojo looking at them. I uploaded all my photos from January to May to Winkflash (they are having a 6 cent sale for 4x6's) and got 489 photos developed. I have only flipped through a few and already new ideas are flowing....yeah!! Off to sort and place the photos in albums so they at my fingertips when I want them! Hope everyone is having a great creative summer so far.

I went to a friends baby shower this past weekend and had so much fun. My dear friend Holli is due next month with her first baby. She is having a little boy they are naming "Mason". She looks fantastic...pregnancy really agrees with her.

Slip n Slide

Remember when you were 10 years old and you had a slip n slide in your backyard...I have some great memories of running as fast as I could and throwing myself through the air onto the piece of yellow plastic and flying off the other end into the grass...pure bliss. Well, the only thing that has changed is that the plastic is no longer yellow, it's orange. My boys had a blast...
