After talking to my friend G.Money today I realized I need to blog even when I am not "creating." I haven't had much time to scrap, or do anything for that matter, in a while because we have been up to our eyes in baseball. I'm not complaining, but uh hem....I need a lil *me* time. So anywhoooo....I thought I'd share a few pic's of our fun times this past week of swimming, playing, and well.....you guessed it....baseball*ing. The first pic is of Coleby playing in a baseball tournament on his *Club* team. They are called the "Carlsbad Stingers." (Like 7 yr old kids need to be on *club* teams...but those of you who know my husband know it's just a family thang). I know I know, nice chain-link fence in the photo. On the last day of the 3-day tournament a parent approached me and said, "Hey the best spot for picture taking is up there on that utility box..." Oh well, I didn't get pic's of our team without the fence but I got some pic's for my friends of their kids!! :(
My brother got engaged recently. Here is a pic of him and his new fiancee Laura at their engagement party this past weekend. I am so proud of my brother. He is 12 years younger than me.....the SAME span of years between my oldest and middle child...weird huh? He is currently in Seminary school after graduating from Westmont in Santa Barbara. He is the tool God used to bring our family to Christ.....when he was just 2 years old. That testimony will be told someday on here I am sure.
We did a TON of swimming this weekend! I LOVE Carlsbad I tell ya. Warm weather, and it's my kinda place....where EVERYONE knows your name. Seriously, everywhere we go we run into someone we know. I just LOVE it!!
Oh, and there's NOTHIN' like having smores made while roasting marshmellows over a sandpit BBQ! Talk about living in Carlsbad!!
Giggle for the day:
Aspen pours a huge bowl of Cocoa Puffs and Daddy asks,"How many bowls of that cereal are you going to eat today."
She grins and answers, " A WOT!" We almost peed!!
