Sunburned and tired...

Yep, i'm sunburned and tired after my weekend, but it was a good one! We had a birthday party yesterday, and today we spent almost the whole day outside. In the morning, we did yardwork, and Tony finished up the low brick wall we build around our garden... it looks great!! I'm so excited about it! Then, after the kids' naptime, we went back outside. Tony took Noah's training wheels off again, and he is now officially a bike rider!! He totally got it this time! What's even funnier is that 3 of his n'hood friends all got their training wheels off in the last few days, too! It was like a chain reaction, hehea. I'm proud of my little guy - he's such a big boy at 4 1/2! All the sun knocked me out - I think i'll sleep well tonight!

Here is my Fancy Pants layout using the Kraft Kuts line. I sooo love the Kraft Kuts, and I can't wait to get my hands on the new lines that were just released!

This was my childhood home. The journaling reads: My first 12 years were spent in this house on Darnell Drive. This is where I grew up. Lots of memories... lots of love.

I'll leave you all with my favorite photo from today :-) I'm having so much fun trying out the different manual modes on my camera! I took this one in Shutter Priority mode...
I hope all of you guys had a wonderful weekend, too!

Did you sleep well? Funny how the sun can totally drain you! But it sounds like a wonderful weekend! Love the layout. I took pics of my house last night for a future layout. And I've been thinking of comparing it to my childhood home. You really did a great job with this one.

And look at you go with those new photography skills! I photographed a wedding Friday night...I was worried sick I would blow it. I took over 1000 photos. LOL! You know what they say, take 5 to get one good one. Well, I took that to heart! LOL!

Congrats to your two-wheeling little man!

LOVED this LO and of course it brought back so many wonderful memories for me as well. I love the fact that you and your brother have such fond memories of your childhood on Darnell Drive. I hope Noah and Chloe will feel as much love for their home (and I think they will) that you did for yours.

Love,
Mom
