less direction, more fun...

for all of the
'look over here!'s
&
'please smile!'s
& even
'we will go get a treat if you will
please just get within an inch
of each other
& make a face that resembles a smile!'s
all it really takes is
a morning hike to a waterfall
where mom gets to take lots of pictures
& dad gets to breath in the fresh air
& miss m gets to be carried by daddy
& Q gets to climb all over everything in site
& a quick
'everybody squish in!'
& daddy's long arm...

& just like that
true smiles
& real love...

:)

(we camped at loon lake this week
it is such an awesome place!
it's a lake with a swimming area
& a sand beach...
did i already say awesome?)

~~~~~~~~

ps
thanks to everyone who came
to visit at the shop hop!
what a beautiful day it was...
when i was out hanging signs
there were so many sales!
garage
& yard
& tag
& estate
& church rummage...
i almost dropped my hammer
& went for a browse :)

the shop looked so great...
i had our tiny baby camera
& after i took one picture it died...
sad baby.
so i hijacked jill's
& i will post some fun pictures
when i get them...

i had something unprecedented happen
during the summer mini book class i taught:
4 out of the 5 students left with finished minis!
it was v. exciting...
us scrapbookers
easily excitable :)
so now those cute girls
don't have to worry about finishing their minis
they just get to enjoy life
& fill their books with summer memories...
nice job, girlies!

now onto the next...
personal: sleep...please....
creative: i've got some ideas... always :)
travel: jill & i are getting our july 31 trip to
barn house figured out...super fun!
family: 2 words: backyard pool & also: husband home :)
celebration: 4th of july! my sister & nephews are
coming down...hooray!
blog: figure out these new backgrounds...too many choices,
cute on first look, not so cute once they are applied
attitude: don't stop believing! (& watch glee all summer)

:)
