This has been a great weekend, but WOW! did it fly by too fast! Thankfully, we made great use of it and got a lot accomplished! Ahhhh! Love the feeling!
I always wait until the last second to get school shopping for the kids done. So this year, I am bound and determined to get it done early! On Saturday, Kevin and I loaded up the kids and headed for the mall. We were able to get Owen and Maryn DONE!!! YES! I also picked up a few things for Jensyn, but she is proving to be harder to shop for. She's now into Jr. Girls clothes and everything just seems a little too revealing for my taste. So we will be heading out again tomorrow to try our luck again!
As promised here are a bunch of photos from the 24th of July celebration here in Utah.
The next day we always get together with Gramma and Grampa and head for the Handcart Days Carnival in the Park
Maryn and her cousin, Hannah
Jensyn and Owen with their cousin, Josie
My mom and my brother
Everyone enjoying lunch and goodies under the trees
Maryn and her long-awaited cotton candy!
Camryn looking as indifferent and unexcited as a two-year-old can. I mean, she wouldn't want us to think she was actually having fun! LOL!
And the "classic" Fishing Pond. A must-visit each year . . . atleast three times! :)
****************************************Here's another layout using the Memory Lane Kit of our dog, Kiki, and her mystical Puppy Powers! LOL! I cut the butterflies from the Hambly transparency using my Cuttlebug and then used the Stickles to outline the edges for a little bling!
Well, it's 11:00 p.m. -- and I'm off to clean bathrooms and dust! We have a showing on our house tomorrow morning. (It's so much easier to clean when the kids are asleep! LOL!) Wish us luck!
