Just a real quick layout about David's Dad and his adventures in attending auctions.  He is now a proud owner of a street cleaning machine.  Let us know if you ever need your street cleaned, we'll be right over after we wrench on it to get it working.

A little heavy on the layouts today, but I wanted to post all my Boston layouts at once.  Last year for Easter the girls and I joined David at the beginning of business trip.  We weren't there for very long but we packed in a lot of site seeing.  My favorite was the USS Constitution, it was being prepared to go into dry dock so it was missing it's masts and the insides had been cleared.  I want to go back when it is fully refurbished so we can see it in all it's glory, what a great piece of history.

Lake of the Ozarks Shootout

We look forward to the shoot out every year, we are lucky that the mouth of our cove is the finish line.  So we basically get front row seats and not all the crowds.  There are always fast boats, high flying planes, friends and good times.

I used a layout sketch from Scrapbook Generation that was a Freebie Friday.  It really made this layout come together quick.

Girls Weekend

Girls weekends are always the best and so worth the time and effort it takes to bring five girls that all live in different cities together!  It gets harder and harder to do this because of all our busy schedules. But these ladies are the best because we make it work!  Love them!

Snow Fun

How about some snow photos to help cool off the weather.  It has been a mild summer this year and fall is definitely in the air.  BUT the snow could hold off till next year please!

Tractor rides with Grandpa that is what childhood is made of.  Allison definitely loves to ride in the tractor any time she gets, she is even known to take a nap while riding.  Ashley fights it but will still do it and ends up having fun.

 Wow it's been awhile since I sat down and completed an layout for our family books.  I have been working on finishing up our 2014 family vacation mini album. Allison took her Daddy to a dance and had a ball.  She talks about the Daddy Daughter dances all year long.

Hay and more hay.  We are in the middle of our second cutting this year so it seems only fitting that I did a page on last year, our first year. Now we just need to sell the bales!  It is nice to have the land next door for fun; riding four wheelers, hay rides, garden and orchard.  But the best part is we can make a little money off of it too!

More layouts

 Ahh the annual GBS lake weekend last year was so fun.  One of the many memories will be Ann and Tim's boat breaking down and us coming to the recuse to haul them back to the dock.  It was funny watching them try to signal to us that they needed help, lots of arm waiving.  The best part was we knew they needed help and could not get to them right away and the panic in their boat just grew.  Lots more arm waiving.  Cale came to the rescue and fixed it!
These two love each other and hate each other just as much.  If they can play together they have a blast and come up with some pretty amazing games and imaginative play...but oh does it take awhile to get there.  Allison just adores her big sister, I just wish I could say the same for the big sister.
