long overdue update

Not too sure where the last 10 days has gone. It has been the same old same old around here but time is flying. Maybe it's the fact that the weather has finally turned to Spring and we are spending more time outdoors and when we come in, hours have passed. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was gone for the weekend and just getting back into a routine. Who knows...just trying to make the most of it! One of the added advantages of the nicer weather is that the kids are getting along much better, which makes being around them way more enjoyable. We all seem to be really enjoying each others company. They aren't even fighting over their new trampoline...lol!! Uncle Neil delivered their Christmas gift a couple of weeks ago but the weather and Brian not being home prevented it from being assembled so it sat in the garage teasing them. Until this past weekend...Brian put it together while I was gone and the boys spent the whole day outside jumping and hanging out with each other. On Monday morning, Gavin ate his breakfast extra fast and disappeared into his room. I went in to ask him what else he wanted (he'd only had a bowl of cereal) and he was slipping his shirt over his head and said he didn't have time to eat anything else, he had to go on the tramp!! It was 10 to 8 and out he went....crazy kid!! I still need to take some pics of them on there and send them to my Brother...he really is the greatest Uncle and the boys told him so Sunday afternoon when they called to Thank him again for the coolest Christmas present!!
I guess that has been the highlight of our week...except for my scrap weekend. It was my personal fav. It was in celebration of National Scrapbook Day (stop laughing all of you non-scrappers...lol). We stayed at a hotel and perhaps the best thing for me, was the meals were all catered....no fast food and I didn't have to cook it! I probably would have thought pb&j tasted like heaven if someone else made it for me...hehehe!! Anyway, I'll leave you with some of the stuff I accomplished over the weekend. Have a great rest of the week all!
Carsyn was determined to get to the top of the tree in our front yard...what a monkey!
still needs journaling but what do you say about this mess...and he's proud of it!!
when you forget to bring your laundry to the laundry room, Mom teaches you how to do it!!
these 2 should be reversed...oh well

Wow - though I know what you mean about life getting into the spring routine - sounds like things are going great in your yard (so to speak) - love the layouts that you finished. Yes are not retreats so fun! I hope I can catch one in the fall sometime, going to have to save up my pennies for that just in case the opportunity comes up!

again love the layouts Laura and hope you and yours have a fabulous week!

Sounds like you had a fantastic week-end away, I'm looking forward to the time when I'll be able to do that. Love all your los and especially the laundry one, lol. The trampoline sounds like a huge success.
