1 layout

I did a scrapbook layout for a challenge on personalscrapper.com. It went together pretty quick and easy. I like the way it turned out.

Coast Trip

We started off the trip with an impromptu ride on the Sandland Adventures dune buggy. Here is Kyler waiting for the ride. While we were waiting
we did a bumper boat ride.

I rocked! I got Dan and Kyler a lot more than they got me. They were wet and I wasn't. Hehe. Here are the three of us before the ride started. We had a blast! Kyler loved it when we went down the hills fast. He did however fall asleep before the ride was over.

Kyler and me on the beach outside our hotel.

My sandy boy. He was so sandy after playing on the beach.

Then we went to the Newport Aquarium. We got there very early in the morning and had the place mostly to ourselves. It was a great time to go. Here is Kyler with the Jellies. He knew what the were are started to tell me about the part they play in on Nemo. And he is Kyler with a Sea Otter.

Then we headed up to Seaside. We spent the evening walking around the town, riding rides, and playing on the beach. The three of us enjoyed the Tilt a whirl. Kyler and I giggled almost the whole time.

Kyler sleeping.

We finally made it up to Astoria! Drove up to the Astoria column. It was about 8:30pm. I think this was a nice time to go here too. We walked all the way up the 140 something stairs. Great view from up there.

We made our way to Ft. Clatsop the winter camp for Lewis and Clark. Then we headed up to Ft. Stevens.

We toured Ft. Stevens in a n old Army truck. Kyler started to have some melt downs at this point. He didn't want to walk anymore.

Peter Iredale a shipwreck in Ft. Stevens .
We then stopped for a very short visit in Aloha and then we drove I-5 home. And it took forever. Got home at 11:30

First 20

I don't know how many of you have noticed my weight ticker. But its above this blog. About the middle of January I decide to make some changes to my lifestyle. I increased the number of times I went to the gym each week and I made some changes to my diet. Starting slowly I have managed to take off 20 lbs. Which may seem like a small feat to some. I have always been heavy and but this has been hard and I just wanted to take a moment and celebrate myself. Good Job Mary!!

Sick again!

Well either Dan gave it back to me or I managed to will it away so I could scrapbook. I don't know but cold I started to come down with before is back.

Also on Mothers day Kyler somehow injured his knee or his leg and wouldn't walk on it. all night. He was crawling to the potty to toys. I called the on call doctor and they told me if he was still doing it the next day to bring him. So the next morning I took the day off from work because he wasn't walking. Just as we were about to leave he walked a little bit. We got to the doctors and he walked for the doctor. The doctor said he probably sprained or pulled a muscle. He still limps on it occasionally. But he is fine. He did manage to do this to his face yesterday. The pen went from ear to ear.

I guess I should go eat some breakfast and clean up the house a bit. Maybe today will be the day the week turns around :) cause so far it sucks

Hello boys(? I don't think there are boys reading my blog) and girls! I got back from my retreat about 2:30 . I had a BLAST and I so mean it. Meet some very fun girls. Thanks for scrappin with me girls. I got 17 layouts done and started a two page layout that I didn't quite finish. I really love some of these layout while some are just okay. And is it work to be looking at the schedule and thinking hmm when can I go next. Really it was that fun. I won 3 things. I won a drawing, the pop quiz about the website and the person who use the most suggestions from the suggestion box. I got some Disney stuff with a mickey mouse punch, a paper pack and some cutter bugs. Anyway here are the layouts......

Feeling a little crapy and very crabby...

So this Friday I will be going to My croptime retreat. Last time I went I got sick and the weekend sucked a little cause I felt so bad. So Sunday when I woke up with a sore throat I was not happy. I have been downing the vitamins c and I am feeling a little better this morning. However I am grumpy!! My poor child has to be with me today. I am trying to go easy on him though :) Thats all I have going on today well besides cooking and cleaning.
Kyler has been doing really well potty training and then last night we had a couple of set backs. He has gotten really good at going pee but not so good at the other. We have a cute sticker chart and when he gets to the end he gets something really good. I haven't decided what it is. Any suggestions??

Well I am going to try and pack some more.
