Memorial weekend fun!

Well for the Memorial Day weekend, in between rain showers, we found time for some fun! Erica and Cody went tubing! The water was only 60 degrees and they spent a lot of time in it! Of course, it is the goal of the driver, who was grandpa, to make you fall off. He was successful!

Adam and Ian made their own fishing pole to try and catch some dinner! It is a good thing that we weren't counting on their catch or we would have gone hungry! It is always fun trying though!

Ethan had a ball in the mud puddle with his pan and bottle.....he splashed it all out and even poured it on his head. Any one that came near him got it too! His shirt said it all.....Mr Messy!

The Burlington Bees take their first win!

The Burlington Bee's won their first game last night 2-1! It was an exciting game that went into extra innings! Adam made his pitching debut and did a great job. I joked with him that he was my little closer! In the last two innings he struck out several batters and only walked one. I didn't want to take too many pictures....especially of him pitching, because I didn't want to make him nervous! He was pretty excited though!

All the fun is over!

Well, the party was a success and it is back to life as usual! I have a couple days of cleaning up my work area and getting things back in order then I can start painting again! I have to live with the fact that my teenager is now running around on the roads now...she passed her driver test! I think if I could get myself to paint when I am worried I could get a lot of work done!hee hee!

Here are a some pictures from her party!

She was not happy that I made her wear the "16" crown and lei and wand at all! I hope she doesn't see that I posted this picture here or I will be in trouble! Hee hee!
I tried my hand at some altered art! It was really fun! I loved decorating the paint can and I filled it up with gift cards and stuff for her truck. I think it turned out really cute. I think I will be doing more of those!

It was a rainy day....which is usually a party disaster......but in this case it was a blessing because grandpa got to come home for the party! He is working out of town and doesn't get to come home very often. He surprised her with some roses. She was very happy to see him!

It's all about Erica!

Recently it seems to be all about Erica! Today is her 16th birthday! I am busy planning and making things for her party coming this weekend. Tonight we will go out for her birthday dinner, Chinese, her favorite.

In between running Erica back and forth from her lifeguard training last weekend I did get to squeeze in a few garage sales! My first ones of the year. I found some great things to add to my painting stash and a few things for my own collections! It was a lot of fun. Erica passed her lifeguard class so she is good to go with her summer job!

Friday I will take Erica for her drivers test, hopefully she will pass so she can drive herself around! I am sure I will be a nervous wreck about it when the time is bittersweet!

Too busy to create!

Last week I was busy with my daughter's first prom! It was exciting and devastating all at the same time. I am sure all you moms with teenagers know how I was feeling! She went with a group of friends and they all had a great time.
This week I am using my creativity preparing for the big sweet 16 birthday party coming up. I am very excited, I want it to be a very special day for her. It is just so hard to believe that my baby is growing up so fast. She got a job as a lifeguard this summer, a truck and is starting to campaign for class president. That is alot for me to take in but I am sure I will survive. I am very proud of her.
Once all of this excitement is over I will get back to work. I am really looking forward to creating some neat summer things and some patriotic items. I already have some ideas rolling around in my head! If there were only more days in the weeks or hours in the days!
