A quick layout I did last night with my Studio Calico August kit Sandlot and this layout by Ginny for inspiration.  There is on tiny little mistake....Trinity is 9 in this picture but she is 10 now, oh well.

Oh Trinity you sure do have a personality.  Anytime you say squirrel, chipmunk or rabbit she tilts her head like she is saying "Where?"  Being 10 she is really starting to slow down but is still in great shape and is pretty active for her age.  We love her!

Lake Air Show

A two pager using my August Studio Calico kit Sandlot!  I need to get 2013 in the books so that I can concentrate on all the mini albums that I have half complete.  I need a Saturday away to get some of my projects done!

After Labor Day the Lake really seems to slow down and the water starts to cool off so we are always looking for fun things to do with the kiddos.  I had picked up a postcard for an Air Show at the Camdenton Airport early in the summer and told Dave we needed to plan to go.  I am so glad we did.  It turned out to be really great and the crowds were not too bad.  They had lots of stunt planes, old military aircraft and even a turbine car that made lots of smoke.  They even raced a car and airplane, fun for everyone!  I am looking forward to the Lake Air Show this year!

Six Flags

 A two pager!!! We just went to Six Flags this past Friday soooo it made me want to get this one in the books.  Someday maybe I will get caught up and be scrapping current.  I used my Studio Calico July kit Penny Arcade.

Wendy and I only took the big kids to Six Flags.  The older kids are over 48" which opens up a whole lot more fun things to do.  The littles will get there chance in a few years.  Ashley and Aidan pretty much rode everything they could (there are a few 54" rides).  Their favorites were the Mine Train and America Thunder roller coasters.  I don't think they liked the Screamin' Eagle because it is pretty rough.  All in all we had a great day!

Tractor Rides

Nothing fancy about this layout, I haven't been feeling very creative lately.  They all can't be masterpieces but the best part is that it done and a great memory.  I used my July Studio Calico kit Penny Arcade.  I hope to get one more layout done with this kit and to get back my scrapbooking mojo!

1st tooth

My Studio Calico August kit Penny Arcade has been sitting on my desk all month.  I just didn't feel inspired to scrap with it.  Two night ago I just dug in and came up with this lovely layout.  It's amazing what a new kit on the way will do to motivate you.  I also have a second layout in the works right now.

Ashley is up to a total of seven teeth lost.  She lets them hang on for a long long time.  She will let Dave pull them if he first numbs her gum.  She is a wimp.  But the first was pulled by the dental hygienist.  For the longest time Ashley wanted me to make a dentist appointment every time she had a loose tooth.  No way kiddo!

Currently: August

Watching:  Manhattan (new drama about making the atomic bomb)

Reading:  Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
                 Just Finished:  Margot by Jill Cantor

Listening:  Any Way You Want It by Journey

Making: Ashley's 2nd grade school album

Feeling:  Being pulled in multiple directions

Planing:  Back to school for the girls (haircuts, shopping, uniform cleaning)

Loving:  The mild temperature summer we are having
