Wilderness in Wahkiakus

Great times make for great memories...
I took the kiddos to Wahkiakus, Washington this weekend. We had a great time!! Peaceful and relaxing except for the occasional peeving of the kids.

Map for Matty

I made this little map for Matty. He's going to love this. Still in the process of adding dates and details, but it'll always be a work in progress. So fun!!  I took this from inspiration I got from Craft Warehouse yesterday.
My version on Matty's wall.

They had 3 great ideas; on a cork board, one in a frame and another one that had photos:

Bathing in the dark

Wow! It has been a while since I've posted. Bummers for you, but been busy on my side.
So to catch up, Samantha is in 1st grade, Matty in 4th and Nathan in 5th.

I just had surgery on May 10th for bladder prolapse and a hernia so "me ouchy" right now.

I decided to post a couple of fun pictures that were inspired by my friend Nikki of Whimsylove. She is doing a Summer diary of things she does with her girls over the summer days. The last one that inspired me was when she put glow-in-the-dark sticks in a bubble bath and took pictures. So fun! is our version of that activity. Matty & Samantha stayed in the bath for at least 45 minutes connecting and reconnecting all of the sticks. They had so much fun! Sorry, no bubbles this time.
