Sunday Safari

On Sunday we went up to Wildlife Safari. I won a year membership at a silent auction at work. A dang good deal I might add. We had lots of fun! For the longest time Kyler was more pleased with the fact that I let him sit up in the front with me than all the animals. But hey its a whole new view from up there. We went around the driving loop, had a Rhea get a little fresh with us. Kyler and I didn't not approve of his freshness and made Dan drive away. The giraffe's were friendly but didn't not try to make it past 1st base so they were Kyler's favorite from the day. After the driving loop we stopped off at the picnic area laid out a blanket and ate some lunch. We did this to be cheap but I must say it was really nice to hang out and eat our PB and J's there. Then we took a walk on one of the hiking trails Kyler starting patting 30 seconds into the walk so we only did a small loop. Then we went to the Safari Village (the free part) and checked out the animals there, watched half of a show and went on our way home.

Route 5 Crop

So here are some pictures of me with the scrapin' celebrities at the Route 5 Crop. This me with Karen Russell. Karen is from my hometown so she has special place in my heart.

The crop was two days on Friday we (Leisa and I) went to each of the store in Grants Pass and Medford. Each store had a make and take and lots of great shopping. Then Saturday we had a crop from 9 to 11. We also got a class for both Karen Russell and Ali Edwards. Leisa and I both won awesome paper packets and just had a great time.

Here is a picture of Leisa posing for me. Like Maci does.

And me with Ali Edwards

First things First

Kyler's birthday party was stressful for momma Mary. We had a cake fall, (yes I said fall) last minute cancellations and a grumpy Mary but overall I was told many times that it was great so it must have been great right?

Now its almost 11 and I getting tired so I'll post pictures tomorrow from my rockin' Crop this weekend. I promise!

So here is a shot of my mom's group at dinner. I thought I share this picture 1. because we were having a good time. 2. because you can see the length of my new haircut.

Life is crazy right now, I am preparing for Kyler's birthday bash which I still have some invites to mail tomorrow.

Kyler and I both have dental appointment this week. We went in earlier this month and both of us have cavities. Which is really disappointing.

My house needs some serious cleaning before people come over. I just can't seem to keep it clean these last few weeks.

My car window needs repair!Today when Dan and I went to a Midsummer's Night's Dream in Ashland we came out and the small chip in my window decided to grow to 2 1/2 feet long.

I need to get my husband something for our 8 year anniversary on the 23rd.
Just lots of crazy stuff going on!

School House

Its that time again. And as much as I love him, I am glad that he is at school. He truly enjoys it. In the meantime I have been cleaning up the entryway. And backing up the photos on my computer. And watching Silk Stalkings Season Two over my shoulder while cleaning up the entryway. I know life is exciting!! Isn't it? People always ask me what I do with my time on Tuesdays when he is at school and this is it.

Last night I started Kyler's birthday invitations. They are in my opinion stinkin' cute. I'll have to post a picture later as I must get back to the entryway soon. His birthday is on a Sunday this year so we decided to buck the Saturday party thing and go for a Sunday party thing.

Anyway I hear the entry calling my name.....

What my child thinks of me....

He has been doing this a lot to me here lately. I think that he thinks I talk to much. I wonder why he thinks that. And yes he is still in his PJ's and its the middle of the afternoon. And yes they don't match. He dressed himself the night before.
