Yeah for Summer Fun!!

Yeah for Summer!!
It's finally here! Well, not technically but, we're out of school, so it's summer for us.

First stop: Target

Look at all the great stuff we got in the dollar section. Buckets, bubbles, pails, sand tools, squirt guns, pool toys, beach balls and can't forget candy.

We're almost ready. Now we've got to get our summer bag packed and loaded in the car. The little league equipment just came out. Time to load a washable sturdy bag with water bombs, beach tools, goggles, snacks, etc. Everything for a quick trip to the pool or beach.

One problem: The weather! Ugh!

Everyone keeps telling me it's just June Gloom. No. It's too cold.

So, my poor kids, we can't go to the beach or the pool, and the free movies haven't even started yet. We are having a little bit of a slow start to our summer fun. That's o.k, though, we are always so buys it's kinda nice to slow down.

Oh yeah, here's a little something I've been working on. They are so much fun once you get the hang of it. I am totally addicted. I've made so many I've just about run out of crepe paper. Obviously I need to get better lighting at my work station but, I think you can see how adorable they are.

Have a super summer.
