Just another summer night

Last night I took the boys to The Woodlands Waterway, which is a new area of town homes and restaurants built around a man made riverwalk. It has really developed nicely and they have an area with some water sprinklers. Up on the upper level they build a fountain and the sprayers are coordinated with music. We picked up a little ceaser's pizza and off we went.

We had fun and even went over to berripop for some frozen yogurt. Just 10 more days till school starts! I'm just trying to keep it together until then.

What I Wore Wednesday

It's been quite some time since I have done a post on my blog. I really haven't been getting dressed because it's so stinkin hot! But most of the days that I do get dressed I just run out of time to take a picture. So here are some of the pictures that I have compiled over the summer. I only get these pictures taken because of my oldest son Kyle. He is learning, it usually takes a few shots. I stick the camera on auto and hand it over. We have not had a very fun late part of the summer. It's been over 100 degrees everyday and no rain. I'm boycotting our neighborhood pool because the developer is a total douche bag and I refuse to give him any of my money. So we pack up and head to the pool at my parents neighborhood. Anyways here it goes:

Well that's all I've got, I'm not sure how large these pics will come out, I have had major problems uploading in blogger and had to change to the old editor just to get this pics to upload.

Weekend in Dallas

In a last ditch effort to get out of town before school starts we took a trip up to Dallas.  We have had major cabin fever so it was worth it to live out of a suit case for a few days. We did some shopping in South lake, took the kids to Lego land, did some more shopping at grapevine mills outlet mall, and swam at the hotel pool.  Didn't have my camera for swimming, bummer they were all lined up and jumped into the pool together.  It was very relaxing.

These pictures are super grainy I had to jack my iso up because the lighting was terrible plus by uploading into blogger the picture quality is greatly diminished.  I'm so frustrated with blogger about ready to change to word press.

Testing- picture comparison for uploading pictures

from blogger upload

web diptych
from flickr html upload

This has been a very frustruating experience.  I am not very technical, so this is a great challange for me.  I have noticed that when I upload pics on my blog they don't look as good as just thru my photo library, much less photoshop or lightroom.  I haven't read a lot about this, it seems I must be the only one who has this problem but a few places said to upload via flickr or photobucket.  So do you see the difference?  Let me know!

Summer Vacation

I have been catching up on my blog reading and have noticed all the posts about summer lists of things to do.  I also downloaded from Kelly Willette her 100 summer things- ideas for summer snapshots.  As I look at them, I realized that the only outdoor activities were going to be centered around water. I have read all you blogger and your lists of great trips to the park, picnic lunches, and bike rides. It's been 100 degrees here and you can't go outside until 8pm.  We did go for a bike ride last night (at 8pm) and came home drenched in sweat.  We spend our days inside wishing for cooler weather.  The boys are in camp at our church for the next 2 weeks.  Now that Kyle is over his ear infection we can head back out to the pool.

We did go on vacation a few days after school let out.  I didn't want to go so soon, as I wished to have a few weeks of laziness.  But non the less we went and had a great time.  We went to San Antonio for a few days and went to sea world.  Then we headed out to the frio river.  The kids had a blast.  There was no floating the river as there was no current to take you anywhere but that was fine.  We had a nice swimming hole by our camp with some shallow area for us the lounge in chairs and deeper area with a rope swing.

Played some sandbag toss


Kooper floating in the little bit of moving water

Kyle hanging out

We played a lot of Jenga

Did some swingin

Celebrated Marks birthday
Beer, Food, Playing in the river what better way to celebrate the day

Had a little sword fight

The only picture I took at the Hyatt Hillcountry, I was so mad because we ended up at a sandy each entry off of the lazy river and we had such dreamy sunsetting back light and my camera was in the room.

We did some minnow fishing

And Kooper took his naps like this
I hope you have a great summer vacation!

Right Now

Here is a snapshot of our everyday now that we don't have much of a routine.  Here is Kooper watching his favorite dvd Elmo.

It's raining here in H town and boy did we need it. It was nice having a lazy day at home alone.  The boys were at camp and I just spent the day doing some cleaning and now I have time to relax while the boys rest and Kooper naps.  Have a great week!

I haven't been very good about taking pictures of my outfits in the last two weeks.  You know those last few weeks of school are a little crazy.  Some days I did fix myself up but then I did a a few days where I didn't do much for myself and I suppose that's how it is going to go this summer.  Why get dressed up when all you do I go to the neighborhood pool?  Here is a couple of pics, I really love a bright redish orange that is so hot this summer.

I want to be just like my Mommy!

I have a running battle with Kooper to stay out of my makeup.  He has ruined so many items in my makeup drawer.  If the house is quiet go look in my bathroom and you usually find him smashing my tubes of lipstick, or sticking a small blush brush in a jar of concealer and brushing it on his face.  Well the other day Kyle was supposed to be keeping an eye on him while I cooked dinner and let's just say the TV was on so Kyle was glued to the TV and didn't notice him disappear.  This is what I found:

I have to say he looks kind of cute.  The second he saw me he said "No NO nO" and shook his finger!  He just doesn't get it!

Scrapbook Weekend

This weekend I went on a retreat with my mom Cathy, aunt Claude Ann, and cousin Sherry (she is like my aunt) along with my mom's quilting friends the BIFFS.  They planned this weekend retreat and I  invited myself because well that's the only way I can get any time to complete a scrapbook page.  I have all of my supplies behind locked doors or hung up on the walls (which doesn't stop Kooper).  I wish I could leave things laid out on the table so I could pop in and work a little at a time but Kooper would destroy the pictures, stamp all over the paper, open and pour out my embossing powder on the carpet (actually happened), and push all the buttons on my cricut.  I have had pages all ready to go.  Pictures printed, paper and embellishments gathered.  Now I had time and I used it wisely.  I researched and had my layout examples saved on my computer, and I placed an order on two peas in a bucket (which came minutes before I left, I was ready to hunt down the mail man in the neighborhood just to get my package).  So here is what I got accomplished this weekend.

Cosmo Cricket -Snorkel line

Echo Park- Little boy line

October Afternoon- Fly a kite line

I copied Nicole Magourik page http://nicholmagouirk.typepad.com/things_that_really_matter/2011/05/scrapbook-stamping-may-2011.html
