I'm still here

WOW! I can't believe it's been over a week since I've posted ~ sorry guys... and Thanks to Becky for the "heads-up!".
I guess we've been busy and time has just flown. Can I remember half of what we've done? Probably not. Most of my time has been spent being a chauffeur to my children and their friends. Seems like one or both are coming or going and I always end up with an extra kid or two at the end of the day. Both kids went to an "ice skate" birthday party for Nate's friend Brian on Saturday which was a lot of funDSC03398 and Nate's friend Jacob ended up coming home with us afterwards where they had a silly string fight on the pool deck DSC03406 I allowed it under one condition... that they pick up ALL the string afterwards. Not only did they do a great job on that they saved all the string, rolled it up into a large ball and Jacob took it home with him ~ I guess now his mom and I are even for the dead jelly fish Nate brought home from the trip to the beach from their house!
I did get some sewing time in. I finally finished the baby surfer quilt for Bryce. I can show you the pic cause Alex NEVER READS MY BLOG! DSC03408 I've been working on this forever ~ got started on it right away ~ even before Bryce was born ... got the top together pretty quickly and then stalled on getting it quilted. But it's done now and I'm hoping to get it in the mail this week. I was really afraid he'd be old enough to drive down and get it by the time I got it done!
I also did a secret project but it's for someone who does actually read my blog so I can't post pics until it is received later this week.
We also encountered the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile earlier in the week DSC03396 See those dark clouds up above ~ Yeah, I got caught in the downpour coming out of the store. I took one for the team by running out to get the car and bringing it back to the store front so the kids wouldn't get drenched too. Man ~ I could have jumped in the pool and stayed dryer!
Also had a visit this week by my sewing friend Deb and her grandson Ray DSC03433 He's a real cutie but can you believe he's only 1 year (to the month) older than Nathaniel. They all got along great DSC03414 and he even showed Nathaniel how to do a few tricks with his water board thingee DSC03429
Ray says he'd like to come again next time he's in Tampa visiting with his grandma. I think Nathaniel would like that very much DSC03435

is a weiner mobile just like an ice cream truck but with hotdogs? If so, that's SO COOL!

Glad to have you back posting!! :)
