Last day of summer vacation

Yep, it is our last day of vacation. Tomorrow is the boys first day of school and I go back to work at the preschool as well. Today we have orientation where we get to meet the boy's teachers and see their rooms. I am ready for the structure school brings but not ready for the schedule.

On Saturday Connor had his first scrimmage. They did really well considering they played last years champs. Connor is the one in the middle (white pants) on the right side of the photo. He had a great game which included an interception and a fumble recovery.
He is to the right of Eddie in this photo.

Wanted to share the layout I did with this month's Kraft Girl sketch. It is perfect for the scraps of paper I had left from August's kit. Check out the sketch here. You have until August 31!

More photos!

As promised here a some more pics of some of the fun activities we participated in while on vacation. The activities staff at the condos really had some great things planned everyday at the pool and surrounding areas. Here Zachary is trying out the dunk tank. Here is Connor trying to navigate the limbo bar.
Zachary doing his best in the watermelon eating contest. You had 60 seconds to eat as much watermelon as you could.

And then Eddie gave it a try. If I wasn't there to see it I wouldn't believe it if you told me my husband ate 7 pieces of watermelon in a minute! He was mowing through it! Everyone was hysterical and the employees said it was the best watermelon eating contest they ever had! LOL!

Well, that's enough of the vacation photos. I will leave you with a layout. I seem to be doing a lot of these layouts of Zachary lately. Gotta love the tween years!

We're back!

Last Saturday we left for a week long vacation at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina with my parents. We did so many fun things and had a great time!

There was lots of swimming.

The pool at the condo we stayed at was beautiful!
We played in the ocean.
And of course a trip to the beach is not complete if you don't build a sand castle!

At night, after dinner we enjoyed walking around Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach. They are two very popular spots with lots of stores, restaurants, and attractions. We also played mini golf. It was extremely hot and humid during our stay which is okay during the day because you are in the pool or at the beach but at night it very uncomfortable.
Look for more pictures in my next post. They had lots of fun activities at the pool and I got some great pics. Can you say watermelon eating contest?
Wanted to also let everyone know that Kraft Girls is this weeks sponsor at 52 sketches 52 weeks. You can win Augusts kit if you make a layout with this weeks sketch. It's a good one too!

Busy week ahead. I am taking an infant CPR/Pediatric first aid class on Tuesday and Thursday (required for work). Football practice Tues, Wed and Thurs and I have a haircut on Wednesday night. We are trying to enjoy our last few weeks of summer before we all have to go back to school. So not ready for that!
