Port Aransas

We're back from our vacation. We went to Port Aransas, Tx. Port A is located on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Zed's dad lives there and has a great little apartment that he lets us stay in. Zed's dad is also a fishing guide so we got to go fishing a few times. Check out his website here .

This is me and Ella on the boat. Even though she doesn't look like it, she did have fun.

Alexis caught a few fish. This is one. She was very proud.

This is a Portuguese Man of War. They are pretty but apprently they have a very powerful sting. It was just sitting on the beach.

We had such a great time. It was so great to have Zed and the girls all to myself for a while.

Tag mini album

I just wanted to share a tag mini album/booklet that I made a while back. I got the idea from Scrapbook Memories. It was easy to make and I was able to use some of my scraps. I attached each tag holder with thin rope but you could use jump rings.

Birthday wishes

I just wanted to wish my wonderful husband a happy birthday. The girls and I made you a cherry cheesecake, we decorated the house and cut flowers from the yard for you. I hope you don't mind pink roses. :)

Thank you for being such a great husband and father. We are very blessed to have you in our lives. Happy Birthday baby!

June Tim Holtz Mini

So yesterday I received my June Tim Holtz mini kit from Girls Gone Scrappy. I was so excited about it that I put it together last night. This club is so much fun. I can't wait to see what the next few months bring.

Summer, hibachi and GASC!!!!

Today is the start of our summer. Alexis' last day of school was yesterday. Her homeroom teacher wrote her a very nice letter that I will cherish forever. One line she wrote was " goes with everything!". How true is that? It's a great way to express something I've wanted to tell Alexis but never had the words for.

Tonight we're going to a hibachi place to celebrate my husband's birthday. It's a birthday tradition for him. We'll get all of the family together and enjoy some great food.

Then tomorrow it's off to Great American Scrapbooking Convention (GASC)!!!! It's my first year to attend and I couldn't be more excited. My sister and I are taking a Basic Grey class early in the morning and then we'll shop for a bit after. I honestly don't need any more scrapbooking things (did I really just say that?) but I've never been before so I have to experience it all right?

My new favorite thing

This is my new favorite thing...hanging out on the hammock with my mini me. Alexis has only 3 days of school left and then the summer is ours!
