before school, at least. The kids start school tomorrow... the summer went by so fast. We had to squeeze one last summery thing in, so we took a drive up to Lake Erie. It was a fun day. Very relaxing and the weather was beautiful. Not too hot. The water was freezing tho! Cold Canadian water!
Here's a shot of Ethan, he was cold. (told ya the water was freezing!)
We're still working on his arm therapy... he still can't fully extend it. (I do feed this boy! I used to look like that! Ha, not anymore!!)
Emma found these tiny shells:
Some crazy sea gulls ... or are they lake gulls?
After we were done swimming and lounging on the beach, we stopped at a local diner to eat. It was called Sara's. It was packed with people, so we figured it was good... plus I think it was featured on the Food Network. We all ate burgers, Em had a hotdog... we were too stuffed for ice cream, but it looked really good.
Here are the kids posing with the giant hotdog:
Ethan was trying to sneak out of the photo.
The next time we go up there, I want to ride a sailboat. I'm sure we can get one for the day, with a guide of course, seeing that I've never sailed before and might end up in Ontario!
Friday night I finished up this layout before starting on my stuff for the All Moments Remembered guest DT spot. I had this laying on my desk for a week or so. I moved it and everything slid off... so when I sat down I had to redo it... I used the Making Memories Passport line:
These photos are from Disney when we ate in Germany at Epcot... very good food...and beer! ;)
Love the metal clips!
Have a great weekend... I'm going to finish up my layouts for AMR, I used some photos from my film camera. Couple of good shots in there, but mostly stuff from last Christmas... and a lot of really blurry bad pictures. I think I'll stick with digi... maybe Santa will bring me a nice Nikon, if I'm good ;). The paper is gorgeous from the September kit at All Moments Remembered... you must check it out as soon as it's up for sale (you can always preorder). Heather does a fantastic job of coordinating all the elements and papers.
