A Day at the Beach

Today we went to the beach all morning until lunch time. It was wonderful. We are having a relaxing and wonderful time. I forgot to bring my camera cord so I will update with pictures when I get home. Tonight my kids are going to a parents night out event here at the campground. It cost $10 per child and last from 6-9 pm. They are going to feed the kids pizza, have a magic show, and watch a movie. We are going to eat at Logan's by ourselves!!! I can't wait. Last night we all stayed in the camper with my dad and it was not bad at all. I hope that Summer and Rhonda had fun at the pool today.

Father's Day

This is for Rhonda!!! For Father's Day I made Jamie a #1 Dad shirt with Mickey ears. He loved it and wore it proudly all day, and he will be wearing it to Disney World. I forgot to take a picture of him with it on, but will post us all in our matching shirts when we get back from Disney.

Disney Shirts

A few months ago while browsing on of the many Disney websites that I look at everyday to help me plan our vacation, I came across a Design Studio. I found people who create t-shirt designs for you to use to make your own Custom Disney Shirts. I just knew I had to do it. I first started by looking at 100's of designs and deciding which ones I wanted to use. This was by far the hardest part. Then I went to various places like Wal-Mart, Michael's and a few online places to order all the shirts that I wanted to use. I started out making one shirt and so far (hint hint) I have made 5 each for all of us and then one more just for the kids. I then started looking for transfer paper. At local stores it was about 15 dollars for 7 sheets, and there was no way that I could justify buying 25 sheets of that, so I found a place online and got 25 sheets for 30 dollars including shipping. Next comes the fun part, I printed out our designs on the paper one sheet at a time and then started ironing. The shirts below are the only ones that I have completely finished and they are all Karson's.

45 Days Until Disney!!!

Today is the day that we have officially 45 days until we leave for Disney. Those that may not know me well do not know that I am a Disney freak. We went last May as a family and I feel in love with it and I couldn't wait to go back. In September my car was broke into and my camera was stolen with all my Disney pictures still undeveloped on the memory card. I was sick to say the least. Jamie and I called the pawn shops everyday to see if someone had brought in my camera. No LUCK!! So what better reason to visit my HAPPY place again and make new memories to have pictures of. You can bet that I will be taking my laptop and downloading my pictures nightly just to ensure that I have them. Anyway the reason for the post is that the kids and I made a countdown to Disney chain tonight while Zachary was asleep. I cut out the paper and then I let the kids put on stickers and tape them together. They did a great job and really enjoyed doing it. I can't wait to see it shrink!!!!

K5 Graduation

Here are some pictures of my middle baby graduating from Kindergarten. I can't believe that he is almost a first grader. He had such a great year and did much better than I thought he would do. Other than a few minor behavior issues we had really no big issues this year. He really enjoyed his teachers and learned a lot.

Here is his class singing a song on the stage!!
On Pajama Day Nana came to the school and read a story to his class.
Mrs. Foster the assistant with Andrew!
I got my diploma!!!
