It's Almost Time......

.....FOR VACATION!!! You have no idea how ready I am!!!! One week from today we leave for South Carolina to head to the beach!! A week on the sand under my cabana with a book, a cooler and my (don't laugh) walkman...HAHA..still haven't joined you techies and gotten an iPOD. Maybe this year for Christmas I should just ask for something to bring me into the 21st century, huh?

Yesterday we were back to the Splash Park. Guess who is cooling her toes in one of the water spouts!!! MY SUMMER TOES!! I really really would love to see some Aussie Winter Toes about right now!!! HAHA!! You might not understand that if you were not hanging around Oscraps this past winter!! We just love to have fun over there!!

Last weekend we took the boys to the hunting property to ride the fourwheeler. It really wasn't my thing, but all three boys had fun. For me it was just plain HOT!!! I did get some interesting photos....
Here are a couple:

And that would bring me to this layout I created this week. There was a challenge over at the Photo Challenge Forum last week to take a photo of something ugly in such a way to make it appear to something beautiful. Well, looking around while we were down there, I saw a whole lot of UGLY....I did get some shots that I thought I could do something with, but I forgot to post one in time. However it did inspire this layout that I made for Mike to put in his book.

My layouts are not linked (Oscraps Gallery is still down)

Also we made it back to Pump It Up this week...the jump/bounce warehouse. If you want to wear your kids out, take them to one of these places for an hour and a half of jumping and running. They were all asleep in the car on the way home!! My photos are not very good, I never seem to get any good pictures here. It's very dim and really funky lights, plus, it's hard to get any good photo when you are inside one of the jumpy things and everyone is bouncing you all over the place!! I did get some video, but I have not downloaded it. Maybe next week!!

OH BY THE WAY.......................I have a winner for last weeks contest!! YAY!!! NERVOUS MIDWIFE (Nadia) CONGRATS!!!!!!!

  1. Hey Nana ... just check out those tootsies!!! I bet you're itching to get away, especially seeing as pretty much everyone else has already been on vacation this year! The photos from the splash park look great ... very cool & refreshing and just what you need in the never ending heat wave!

    I really can't wait for the gallery to be back up & running at the "O", it's just not the same anywhere else. Some day soon I hope. Still, I'm just grateful the forum is back on-line and that I've got a laptop to access it!

    Anyhoo, I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing holiday ... believe it or not but I'm still trying to get back into routine from mine (and that was 3 weeks ago!!!!)


  2. oh wow...where to begin!! I love everything! The photos of the little ones are great and your layouts are just as awesome as ever...I so miss the gallery at the 'O' O so much!!! I hope you have a glorious time at the beach..sounds like fun!!

  3. Your photos are so inspiring Linda! Loved looking at them ALL!
