Wow, the last three weeks of my life just flew by. I can't believe it. So much going on and there was just not one extra minute to post to my poor little blog. So what's been happening? Well...
The first week of July I headed to Florida to visit with my family. My sister, her two kids, and my youngest brother came into town as well from Colorado. We haven't been all together in about 3 years so it was a big deal. My cousin from Seattle also flew in at the same time and I finally got to meet her two children, ages 4 and 2 for the first time. So as you can see there was a lot of catching up to do. We watched fireworks together on the 4th, celebrated Garrett's first birthday (that was amazing), swam in the pool, ate like kings (fish caught by my brother the night before), enjoyed the beach a couple of times, (Garrett seems to like to eat sand for some reason), visited Busch Gardens, (I stayed home with Garrett), caught fish in the lake behind my Mom's house and just enjoyed each other's company. It was a week to remember and we are definitely going to let that much time to slip by before we do it again!
Here are just a couple iphone pictures of the activities. I have a ton more!
Then it was time to get ready for CHA! I had a little clothes and shoe shopping to do, make n takes to prepare for, and organizing and packing for the trip. In between we swam some more, took walks outside and played at the beach with the cousins.
Before I knew it the day had come for me to fly to Chicago for CHA! Well I guess that will need to be a blog post of it's own. I had so much fun and connected with dozens of wonderful people. I saw old friends and made new ones too!! I'll share about CHA soon plus I have some more layout kits to show you that will be posted for sale tomorrow.
I plan to get back to my regular posting so be prepared! I have lots to share!
