Bright Blue Paint

Spring is officially here today! YAY! Here are my four cuties (and our pup) out enjoying the sunshine.
Jensyn is such a great big sister to patiently pull her little sisters around in the wagon for as long as they wanted.
Mom said, "No, there isn't enough wind today to fly a kite." But Owen was determined.
He pulled and tugged, dragged, . . . and concentrated REAL HARD! :)
He even got his little sisters to help toss it in the air. (Gotta love the underwear shot! LOL!)
And guess what?! He proved mom WRONG! He was able to catch a little wind current blowing in between our house and our neighbors and got that kite to go UP! WOOHOO!
This was Camryn's first official day out in the warm weather. She's usually fast asleep for her afternoon nap and misses out on all the fun. NOT TODAY! See that smile on her face!

She wasn't going to slow down for any pictures for me either!



I used the Noel Mignon Apple Blossom Kit on this layout about my most embarrassing moment. I added the star punchouts, letter stickers, and buttons from my stash. What?! You want to know what my most embarrassing moment is? You can't tell by my pictures? LOL! Here is what the journaling says:

My most embarrassing moment to date has to do with this bright blue paint I bought to create a road on the wall of Owen's room. I had the paint in my car when I ran Jensyn to the Goodell's for a playdate with Monica. We were new to the neighborhood and excited we were getting to know this cute family. When we arrived I told Jensyn to hop over the paint can and exit the car on my side so I could help her with the door on their hilly driveway. I will never forget the complete shock and embarrassment I felt when the can fell out of the car and bright blue paint started running down their new driveway. I tried to block the paint with my hands and yelled to Stan to come help me. Luckily, he was outside washing windows and had his garden hose handy. I just bawled and stuttered apologies the entire time he helped me clean it up. I thought I had ruined their home. Stan was so nice to me about it. Fortunately the paint cleaned up after scrubbing at it for 30 minutes or so. It felt like an eternity to me. To this day the Goodells are great friends of ours and I'm thankful they were able to get past my ditziness!
