To the top

Ashley's 4th birthday was Saturday. Everytime we cross over the Mississippi to go to my parents Ashley comments about the Arch and how she wants to go up in it. So for her birthday we got tickets to do just that.

She had no reservations about getting in those tiny tiny capsules to get to the top and I think had a really great time.

This past Friday I was blessed with a few free hours and a crop at Archivers. I again only worked on pages, which is so unlike me. I usually like to get projects done with that much free time.
Cedarhurst Art Center in Mt Vernon, IL is definitely worth the drive on a nice Sunday if you are looking for something to do. The kids area was just great and there was lots to do outside also. Used my Studio Calico March kit and based it off this Studio Calico Sunday Sketch.

I love that Ann always gets great tickets to Cardinal games and she always asks me to go! This was a special game because we went with Teresa Collins when she was in town for ScrapSTL and it was also Megan's 1st CARDS game.
I need to journal on this about Dave and his new boat. I just have to get the facts right first, I would never hear the end of it if I messed up all those numbers.... Searay 270SLX I think is right. This layout is from the free scrap pack that we got at Archivers!
Ahhh beer, don't you just love it! Based off of this Studio Calico Sunday Sketch.
The boat races that I didn't really want to go to, but ended up really enjoying myself, Ashley too! The most fun was probably watching the crane load the boats into the water. Again I used my Studio Calico March kit.

Busy buys busy!

I have been extremely busy with work. I have been working on lots and lots of estimates and therefore my blog has been neglected. So has my Scrapbooking. I started this layout two weeks ago and finally found time last night (after 24!) to finish it. Not my most favorite but it is a complete page and that makes me happy.

Not much else going on in our world. We did make it to the Lake this weekend and enjoyed the 70 degree temps. I love my family and friends but it was nice to just be "us" this past weekend. We spent lots of time outside... walking (or on an adventure, per Ashley), cleaning up leaves and just enjoying the spring like temps. All of my bulbs are starting to come up... I love Spring! Trinity was exhausted from the weekend, she spent almost all day Saturday outside, she even went for a swim or two!

This weekend is the annual Post-Rolla St. Pat's party at the Schmidt's in Columbia, MO. Don't forget to wear your green on Friday and drink a green beer for all those awesome Rolla engineers you know!
