It's hoooooooot!

It's over 100 degrees here! I expected that when Tony and I lived in Tucson, but mid-June in Maryland? Not so much! Needless to say, we haven't gotten to play outside in a couple of days since not only is it hot, but the air quality is poor. The poor kids are jonesing for some sunshine! Before the heat set in, we did get to have our first cookout on our brand new deck with our brand new grill :-) The kids even have their own little picnic table. So, since I don't have any new layouts to share (I have been busy, I promise, but I can't show you my Luxe DT work yet!), I figured i'd overload you with pictures!

First cookout of the season:

The kids having fun at my nephew's birthday party this weekend:

Tony had to work yesterday, and the kids and I had no plans for the first time in a long time! So, we took advantage of our relaxed schedule and deemed it a movie/hang-out day. The kids had fun lounging on their bean bags with their individual bowls of veggie booty (I told them it was the next best thing to popcorn, lol, since Chloe is too young for it still):
After movie time, the kids wanted to play in Noah's bed. They were so snuggly with each other, it was melting my heart! Noah even said to me, "Mommy, we are so cute. You need to go get your camera." Hhehea, can you tell he is a scrapbooker's son?? I have to admit that I was a little nervous about them being fairly close in age (they are 26 months apart), but I love this age difference! Although they annoy each other at times (usually over toy sharing or lack of!), they are so close and have so much fun together. I hope it lasts!!


Lastly, in scrappy news, I have a link to share. I've seen this on a couple of different sites today, so it may be old news by now, but for those who haven't seen it, it's pretty cool! You can upload a photo and it will choose the best color palette for you to use with your cardstock, pp's etc. http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/colors.php

Happy Monday everyone!
