So what happened to Summer????? Where did it go? At the end of this week, we enter October. I can't believe it!
Here are some of the things that happened since my last post:
4th of July Andrew turned 10! Rv camping in Prineville Kids Fun Run with the cousins My birthday (29th of course) Fun in the Park Cameron's turned 8! Big backyard party at my moms! Spending a week with family - not knowing it was one of the last times I would see my Papa Celebrating our 16th anniversary with friends/parents at a casino! Craps & Blackjack! Camping at Beverly Beach with long time friends/family Oaks Park Cameron broke his arm in 2 places @ Oaks Park roller skating :( Time with friends/family My Papa passed away His service....
Overall the summer was great! It did end on a sad note and I am still dealing with that. Here are some photos (not in order!):
Summer is in full gear. It sure took a while for the weather to understand that! We had the worst June on record. It even was raining the day the boys got out of school! But, ah the sun has decided to come out!
I am taking the summer off (sort of) from my business. We are so busy I am not sure how I would be able to do it anyway. Between camps, baseball, camping, bad weather - I have definitely not had the kick back days & bbq's I had envisioned! LOL
We were able to go camping (RV style) the past 3 weekends. All 3 weekends were unique and very FUN! We went to Detroit Lake with some good friends! It was free fishing day on Saturday so Larry & Greg took the boys fishing out in the boats! Unfortunately my camera lens died in mid-picture so it cut my pictures short but I did manage to get a few. It was a great weekend of relaxation with friends. eating. drinking. socializing. smores. fishing. bike riding - just what we needed!
Then we dry camped for Andrew's baseball tournament. We really enjoyed ourselves! The first night we dry camped @ the ball field and the 2nd night at Spirit Mountain Casino. The boys won 2 and lost 2 but they were good games! We got a chance to go to the casino with my parents so it was so fun!
This past weekend we went to Casey's RV park. It was one of the most beautiful RV parks! It had an awesome pool and the park is right a long the river! The boys got a chance to go fly fishing. swimming. games. bike riding. playing pool. potlucks. They loved the soft serve ice cream machine that was there :) Beautiful weather and weekend!
Now we are on to basketball camp (which the boys love) and I am trying to catch up around here. Feels good to be in summer mode! (and in 1 week my baby will be 10!)
Wow - its been over a month again! I should have more time soon! As announced on the PersonalScrapper blog, I will be taking 2 months off this summer to spend it with my boys!! I am looking forward to just being able to focus on them and have fun!
I wanted to share this video of my son Andrew and his friend Julian. They are musicians! They wanted to try out for school talent show so they got together to "jam". This video is from their 4th time playing together (now they have done 5). I am so extremely proud of them both! They are driven and passionate about music. I think it is hard to believe that they are just in the 4th grade. Please leave a comment!
I love my family, friends and life in general! I started my scrapbooking business 10 years ago to help other people preserve their memories (as well as my own). It has been a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and work together to preserve memories in a fun way!
