H to the E to the double L O

We like to say HELLO. LOL .sorry This cheer is stuck in my head. :)

I can't believe it's almost August. It's almost time to go back to school. We've had so much fun this summer playing and hanging out with our family. Right now we are in the midst of cheer practice. Gigi is doing a fabulous job on her squad. I'm so proud of her. I'm even happier she's socializing and making new friends. Yesterday we got her uniforms and of course she's adorable in it. Saturday they are having their pictures taken in them.

Yesterday we went to Tony's restaurant family picnic. The girls and Tony had a blast playing on the swings and merry go round. I do have to say it's hard to push a 200lb man on the swings. LOL If Tony wasn't playing with the kids, he was manning the grill. It was nice to meet some of his employees. I met a lot of people and of course I don't remember anyone name. Eventually I will learn.

I want to leave you all with a couple new LOs.

Thanks for looking and visiting my humble blog home.
ta-ta for now!!

Summer Rain

Rain Rain go away, I wanna go to the Medieval Faire today!!!

Oh well because it's raining today, we will have a nice quiet day at home. I foresee a day of laundry, possibly scrapping and packratting. If you are wondering about packratting, it's a game on facebook that my guys friends are obsessed about. They have drawn me into their ratting world. It's a cute game all you have to do is collect cards and complete sets. Tony makes funny of me for playing. But, he thinks I'm a dork anyway.

It's been awhile since I've updated but we've been really busy. They girls and I have been having tons of summer fun. I feel like I've neglected my blog and my MBs. I think things will slow down soon.

Last week Tony and I took the girls to the Cleveland Zoo. It's a nice Zoo but all the exhibits are far apart so there is lots of walking involved. The girls loving see all the big Animals that the Akron Zoo didn't have. Here's just a few pics from that day.

Family self portrait.

Yesterday was the AMR Monthly crop, they had tons of challenges but I sort of scrapped pictures that I've been wanting to due. It was a great excuse to spend the night scrapping. Below are a few LO that I've completed. If you want to see the rest, just click on the flickr gallery on the side. You can find my scrapbook gallery.

Oh here's a card I made my hubby last night too.

It's Sunday!!

Happy Sunday Bloggers!!

Wow it has been a long weekend...week. We have been so busy around here lately. We've been playing nonstop and enjoying our summer. The girls and their cousins have been playing hard. It's amazing how much fun a sand buckets can be. The kids had hours of entertainment with buckets and water. They were soaked but had a blast. It's amazing I stayed some what dry.

On the 3rd we braved the rain and saw the Army Field Band Perform and fireworks. The band was fantastic of course they played my favorite march, Stars and Stripes Forever by John Phillips Sousa. Yes...I'm a band geek. After the concert the fireworks started. I think it was the best display we've ever seen. We were right underneath them and they were amazing. I've never seen them from that angle. I was a little scared that we would get burned at first but we were completely safe.

On the 4th Gigi was in her first parade. She was on the float and threw out candy to the crowd. She had a blast during the parade. Lexi had fun watching the parade and getting all the candy that was being thrown at her. She racked up tons of candy. Yey Us!!

Here's the girls in their matching dresses. Aren't they cuties???

We saw fireworks with my Sister in Law and her kids. They had so much fun watching the fireworks together. Here's a picture of them.

Well it's Sunday now and I'll post some LOs later. I hope your holiday was as great as ours!! Enjoy your summer!
