Remember those challenges from way back to blog every day of a certain month? Well, I'm going to try to kick things into gear here by self challenging myself to blog every day this month. We'll see if I can come up with anything blogworthy craft-wise, or if I just keep posting random cute pictures of kiddos.
|Hank has had his Kermit shirt for about a year, and recently spotted one in the baby's size at the thrift store!|
|Insulated plastic Mason jars were a popular beverage holder at this year's T.O. (these have handles -- just turned away). I personalized them with Maw and Paw. This made less since when we didn't have the kids with us, and I felt compelled to tell people who commented on how cute the cups were that we hadn't stashed our kids up in the room.|
|Totally last minute, a co-worker gave me the square dancing dress that fit me exactly :)|
Hope they get this massive fire under control soon before it further threatens this beautiful area.
It was a great weekend to visit the park. It was slightly less crowded than a regular August weekend because of the fire as evidenced by the (unheard of) Vacancy signs at lodges in and around the park. As a camper battling a sinus infection, I was tempted to check in to one of said lodges one night as I was reaching my max for discomfort going up and down mountain roads and being on call 24/7 in the mom department.
Other day trips included a water park, an indoor bounce house place (twice - we have a Living Social deal only good for weekdays), and the L.A. County Natural History Museum. My husband said I was crazy for getting a membership at this particular museum, as we live far away (in L.A. terms) and there is ALWAYS traffic. But, I persevere, and truck the kids there once a month or so. They catch everybody who walks by to have these pictures taken against a green screen, but we have never bought them. This time we did, but I didn't realize until later that the baby's green shirt was replaced by the background image in each one. Hank was sad he didn't have a tarantula shirt on, too.
Back to reality on Tuesday!
Favorite of the day: Love this generic party
Working on: Guess I'll need to come up with some stuff, lol
