another fabulous weekend...

it was, it really was. I kicked off the weekend by attending Scrappy Hour with good friends @ Green Tangerines. It is always fun to visit & get a little scrapbooking done. I got up to get a drink & when I returned to my seat, this little work of art was sitting on my chair.

I know I have said it before & I will say it again...I have awesome friends who are so kind & thoughtful. My sweet friend Brandi made me this amazing little box(I love the polka dot gaffer tape around the lid) that houses about 80 photos/memories from our CHA Chicago trip last summer.

She put a lot of love & time into this little mini album & I LOVE it. Thank you Brandi!

On Saturday, we decided to take sandwiches to the local water park & have a picnic dinner. It was a perfect summer evening. The boys had a blast running & playing. We were successful @ wearing them out. They hit their pillows and were out in no time.

On Memorial Day, we enjoyed a BBQ & swimming with friends. Our friends, the Sugden's were the "hostess with the mostess". We enjoyed yummy grilled fajitas, homemade ice cream

& lots of water :-). The kids jumped from the pool to the hot tub (& vice a versa) all day long. It was awesome! You know it was a BLAST when your kids are still talking about how much fun they had...a day later. Thanks Sugden family, we had a super time.

What an awesome way to kick off our summer.

Garrett has asked me, just about every day for the last month if it is summer vacation yet. With preschool ending last week, he is all about summer starting. It is official...it is summertime for Garrett. He enjoyed his last day of speech today with Miss Erin. She has been a fabulous addition to Garrett's school career. He sure is going to miss her. I took these photos last week. This is where you could find Garrett on Tuesdays this past school year. We are so proud of the leaps & bounds he has made in regards to his speech.

We hope your week has gotten off to a great start & that your days are filled with sunshine.

I need a copy of some of your pictures - I only took some before everyone came ... I start trying to keep on eye on all the little ones and forget to snap pictures too!
