How goofy can two boys be in one evening

I came home from work tonight and boy were they full of energy so I gave Coleton the camera to go take pictures and doing that you never know what you are going to get. This is a perfect example. I don't really think they could get goofier.

Since it has been a while since we have had any rain and the grass, the brown, crunchy stuff we call grass, was screaming for water. I turned on the sprinkler and a short time later I go outside to check on it and this is what I seen. So of course it was a kodak moment. Again lets talk goofy.

Saturdays crop

I was the consultant Saturday night at a crop in Eaton, this is the card we made. I taught a technique called faux metal using several layers of embossing powder and a rubber stamp. Everyone in attendance thought the card was really cute and the technique got lots of ooh and aah's. Once we really got into it we came up with lots of ideas with this technique. It is really cool and fun to do. It is worth trying.

Soft sky card stock, versa mark stamp pad, soft sky ribbon and silver embossing powder was the products used. If you are interested in this technique let me know and I would be more than happy to show you or to tell you how.

Florida Bound and had a Blast!!!!

The boys and I took a short vacation to Florida to visit our aunt Judy and our cousins. Not much was planned but the time away was really nice. The boys were fascinated with the lizards. They also had a blast Saturday when we visited the ocean. We took a ride on cousin Mike's boat where we fished for a short time and Coleton caught his fish he needed to catch for scouts. After fishing, cousin Rhonda and her family met up with us and we went to some island which was awesome. The boys played in the sand, hunted for shells and jumped the waves, just as any kid does when they see the ocean for the first time. In the afternoon we went tubing it was another first for the boys. THEY LOVED IT!

Sunday our family had a cookout and a carry-in. Kids played in the pool and the adults chatted. It was a really relaxing day. Monday was our day to come home. Thank goodness because tropical storm Faye was heading our way. Our plane ride was adventurous after delays we finally got home at 11:00 at night and school started the next day. Luckily the boys were tired and no problems getting them to sleep.

I forgot to mention when Coleton was holding on for dear life to the tube, he got a rope burn (it was on the tube) on his chin. He was really proud of it :)

Enjoy the photos and the video of Coleton tubing. I had to ride with Kelton so we did not get taped :(.

OH MY...

It doesn't seem like it has been since May that I posted last. But it is summer and it seems like we don't get inside until about 9:30 every night. Once we are in, it is bath time, Coleton's shot time and I catch up on shows I DVRed then it is time to sleep and start all over the next day. So it is kinda like the McDonald's commercial years ago. Get up, go to work, go to bed, get up, go to work, go to bed.

I promise I haven't forgotten about my blog and I really want to keep it up to date. I will be going to Florida next Wednesday August 13 - 18 and the next day the boys start school so we will start our normal fall routines and I will have more time to crop and make cards.

I am planning on having several crops and classes in September and October. Please check out my Stampin Up website for dates. But give me time to get back from Florida.
