Happy Labor Day!

Sorry it's been almost a week since my last post. We just got back from 4 glorious days at the Jersey shore. It was wonderful. Most of Fran's family were down at some point. We spent a lot of time on the boardwalk, at the arcade, playing in the waves and playing mini-golf! Ryan discovered Bakugans thanks to the arcade ticket cash-in place. We now have a new obsession! I got some fun beach pics, too.

So, here's a layout I did recently. Yes, it's about starting kindergarten. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of this topic, too. Anyway, I stamped the letters using brown paint to create a background for the photo. And no, that's not first day of school photos. I actually took him up to school the week before last to take some shots. I figured the first day would be nuts so we went up ahead of time. (First day was nuts...but I managed some fun shots anyway)





Hope you're enjoying your Labor Day. I'm just going to spend the day catching up on the mail and doing laundry!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
