Snack'n at the park.

Oh, my goodness.  I'm excited to share this layout with you--I had a REALLY fun time reminiscing.  You see this cute little kid is my 8 year old!  I found these pictures on my hard drive and realized I hadn't ever scrapped them.  The picture on the left shows him eating Wendy's fries.  NO, we didn't go out to eat all that much when my kiddos were little it was a treat....Anyway, can you see why this kid's nickname is Sweetness?  I don't know that he is going to like that when he is a teenager but he is a sweet kid.
 a closeup of the top:
 a closeup of the bottom.  yes, that is a crimper you see....
pattern paper: lily bee designs
the little blue flag: Elle's studio
brad stars: Making memories
red brad: Basic grey
mist: tattered angels
crimper: fiskars
baker's twine, sewing
border punch: fiskars
letters: my little shoebox, American crafts

Just got back from a 4 mile run with Ella the vizsla, she is now nice quiet, and calm.  Me?  I actually am feeling pretty good--don't know what will happen when I stand up though. :)  

Today my daughter has her first track meet--she is pretty excited.  Yesterday they had run offs to see who would be competing, they can only take 3 kids in each event.  She qualified for the 75 hurdles, 100 meters, and long jump.  I'm almost beside myself with excitement--hence the 4 mile run...My hubby says I'm more excited than she is!  I'm trying not to be to out of control--you see track was MY sport.  YES, I'm taking my camera (trying to figure out how to make my shutter speed faster-might just put it on the running man for that...), have my stadium chairs, have a large umbrella if I need it, will be packing snacks, picking up the boys from school early....

Well, I'm off this is errand day. And I have to be creative with dinner as I still have one kiddo that has soccer tonight.  Thanks for staying with me this far!  And thanks so much for popping in! :)
