summer fun

Hope everyone is having a great summer so far :-) I am enjoying having lots of family around, though sometimes it seems we are spending all our time in the kitchen (cleaning and preparing meals/snacks) and doing laundry! LOL! We certainly are loving our time spent together outside in the fresh air. My kids built a fort in the wooded area by our home, and the cousins sure are having fun playing in it.

Here we ar at the local playground. Even the teenagers and tweens love to play on the slides!

Deanne bought these super waffle-like sundae dishes, so, of course, we had to make sundaes!
LOTS of toppings on these!!

A couple of layouts....

This one is for the Unpubbed website and also for our Sisterhood of Scrap challenge.

Here is one I did for a challenge at Lovebug Scrapbooking. My 9 yo son did the journaling himself. I love it!

(I have to apologize for the quality of the images -- I'm having trouble with my scanner and had to photograph my layouts)

My Grandmother

She is 88 years old and still able to do her own gardening. She has always LOVED flowers and this year wanted to do her own planters, instead of having the flower shop do them for her. I think she did a great job with it!

New layout.....

for the Unpubbed challenge.
