Eric and I with a group of friends headed out to the beautiful Gorge Amphitheater to watch one of my favorite bands, Nickelback. Kinda one last hurrah before the end of summer. We had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect. I hadn't been to a concert at the Gorge in years, I had forgotten how breathtaking the view is. Just a lovely weekend.

Shopping with my girl.

Emilee and I went school shopping yesterday. Oh what an adventure. We took my darling niece, Grace and also my co-worker. We hit the mall right after lunch and didn't get out of there until well after dinner. We were exhausted. Emilee started out the day in quite the mood. She didn't like ANYTHING! Then we found a very cute, but very expensive little "tween" shop. Of course she like everything in there. I couldn't bring myself to pay $40 for a dress/shirt thingy. We had a slight meltdown. I threatened to not buy her anything at all and make her wear old clothes on the first day of school. Suddenly she was in much better spirits!!! It was so funny watching Emilee and Grace as we wondered the mall. So much to see. The most talked about event of the day.... a mannequin in the lingerie department that had a wardrobe malfunction. Anyways, we had a great day. I loved spending some one on one time with Emilee. She is growing up so fast.

Get your tutus while there HOT! My friend Emily and I are in the planning stages of marketing our little craft hobby. This is a trial tutu featuring fall colors. Isn't Ava the best model ever.

Camping at Daroga

We had a wonderful time camping this last weekend at Daroga State park. The weather was warm and sunny with ALOT of wind. We roughed it a bit and stayed in tents. Ummmm,not my thing, probably won't be doing that again soon. We went with two other families that I work with. It was a great group of people.

A new tutu for my two year old!

My good friend Emily and I made these adorable tutu's for out girls. I think they are fun! Cate wasn't in the mood to model much so hopefully I will get some better shots of her showing off her new tutu soon.

My lovely sister has done it! She told me about this great photo editing program she found, now I am OBSESSED!!! I can't get off my stinkin computer, I keep messing around with my photos and now I can only think about who else I can stalk with my camera to get some more great shots. I think there is something wrong with me. Oh well, At least I will have some great pictures as a result of my mental illness.

We had a great trip camping and crabbing. The kids had fun, the grown ups had fun. We caught a bunch of fresh crab and are eating good for the next week or so. Life is good. We camped three nights. It was great spending the days out on the water catching crab, coming to shore to explore the beaches and then head back to camp for a nice dinner, tasty smores and a cozy campfire. The kids enjoyed racing around the campsite on their bikes and making friends with all the other kid campers. It was a great couple of days. It's good to be home in the comfort of home. Here are some pics if you want to take a look.
