Grandma teaches them about being creative... but she isn't a fan of me posting her picture, so I will give her kudos for the "Ghost Graveyard" -very cool- you can see it online at ohio.com-kid's crafts... But here, she lends her creative hand and poses the boys for the post-war shot... gotta love boys...especially the big ones! I hope everyone enjoys every day and remembers that life is about making memories... and my parents have always been the best about making that memorable!

Took this pic last night... yes... they both fell asleep like this... it had been a long day... isn't it amazingly sweet? I posted a new slide show to the right... check it out... tell me what you think. I also started reading a new series... the arcane society... started with The Perfect Poison... which happened to be the sixth book in the series. But I really am enjoying them, not my usual read.

Your best friend creates a layout featuring the two of you compared to two elderly rhino ladies who run off any male, young or old, just because they know they can~ who ~ are affectionately referred to by the zoo staff as the two old b******. So sweet! Love you April... very creative layout, using the CTMH Magic Moments Level 2 pack. Such a cute and fun idea... love it!

Seth ponders the size of his hands compared to the gorilla and I would love to know what else is swirling around that creative brain of his when I took this shot.
These pictures were taken this summer (boys were 9, 7, 5). We took photos in the same place last summer and I scrapbooked those pictures... I can't wait to scrap these and compare the two. This is a great way to show the ways the boys have grown and to show how somethings will always be awe inspiring to them. Have a great weekend! Visit the zoo and scrap some of your own memories.

Yesterday finished up an amazing two days of baseball camp for Seth and Noah at the new Hot Rods Stadium. Noah takes a break from his "teacher" after smashing him in the head with a line drive hit. All Robi Estrada, #10 and second baseman for the Hot Rods, could say was, "Good hit, man!" Needless to say, Noah was very proud of himself. Minor league outfielder Anthony Scelfo catches the ball as Seth pitches to him. I can't wait to scrapbook these memories!
Thanks so much to Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Riki, Uncle Todd, Tanya, Troy and Kelly for making our visit one to remember! Below, the boys are visiting Grandma's desk at the Akron Beacon Journal right before we head up to the roof to view the fireworks for the 4th of July. Here is where most of Grandma's writing and research is done. What a cool thing to experience when you are visiting your Grandma! Look for her craft column in a newspaper near you! Special thanks to Grandma who spend so much time planning so many fun and exciting things for us to do during our visit, and to Grandpa, for taking care of us! I love and appreciate you both more than I can say!
Make as many memories today as you can, and do something to document those memories... take photos, keep a journal, scrapbook... anything to keep those memories close to your heart.
