Bikes....and homemade bike ramps!

Tonight Ty begged me to make him a ramp to jump his bike off.  We have done this before, but not with his new "big" bike and a "big" ramp.  So we proceeded to make a ramp and eventually all the neighbor kids showed up to join in the fun.  I said to myself tonight....I am so lucky to live in a place where we can ride bikes, build ramps, have neighbors that come over and just to have this space for the kids to play!

Ty...I love the facial expressions

Lauren....always trying to keep up with all the boys!

Colby...mastering the jump after a minor spill

Zach...showing those kids how it is done!

A-B-C Weekend #2!!!!

So we had a fabulous weekend once again at our A-B-C (arts-beaches-crafts) Weekend.  In true Mothers Day fashion we had 3 mother/daughter pairs there and it was a great way to spend the weekend together!

We had the "Sassy Seven" join us for this weekend and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did!






The first night everyone got right to work on their aprons and everyone finished in super fast time....well maybe Summer had some problems.  But I helped her finish up the next day!  We had an excellent dinner of chicken enchiladas and homemade salsa with chips.

Next up we made Red Neck Wine Glasses.  They were all very cute and unique!  Some did vinyl, some did cloth on the lids and even a few did etching on them!

After a quick break to the outlet malls everyone was back at it making some very unique pillows.  Its so amazing how different each and everyone one of them was and how beautiful they all were!

Following the pillows we made some magnet board hangings and then some very cute potholders.

And then one of the more fun things we did that was not really all that planned was to go to a palm reader

This was actually very interesting.  I wasn't buying into it but I just had to try it...and surprisingly she knew many things that were right on and true about my life...scary!

All the gals were amazing this weekend and we laughed and had so much fun!  We ate way too much great food, some broke out of their crafting shell, some taught me some lessons, we all learned some crazy things our palms said about us....but most important....we had FUN!

A Little Catch Up!

It has been a month since I have been on here.  I haven't even been on Pinterest in 3 weeks, so you know life is just too busy.  So in no particular order....here are some pictures to catch you up and then...it is off to the beach for A-B-C Weekend #2!!!!  Its going to be spectacular.  The weather is suppose to be 70 and sunny all weekend...I don't know if we will want to stay in and craft!
