Summer Activities

Long time!!   Well lot's of things have happened and lots of things ARE GOING to happen before summer is over!!  Just to recap since Mother's Day.   NOT MUCH!!! LOL Just been getting warmer and warmer, now it's gotten into the 80's.  OH and we've aquired a Red Eared Slider

We haven't figured out if it's a she or a he yet and we probably wont ever know for sure.  Connor has named it Turtle!! :) LOL He has gotten so cute about a few things since he started school, which yesterday was the last day of and today is the first day of summer vacation!!

Which leads me to summer activities that are coming up in our life this summer.  There's a lot so here ya go.  Enjoy.

First we will be celebrating my oldest sons fourth birthday, you can read about the birth here.  He has asked for a Power Wheel Four Wheeler, a slip and slide, shirts and shorts along with a few other things that I've forgotten at the moment.  Daddy wrote it all down when he asked Connor what he would like for his birthday.   Daddy will also be decorating the cake as a drag strip and placing Mustangs on it because that what Connor asked for.

Second there's our trip to Michigan for, a family reunion, my moms side of the family.  We will be there hopefully a WHOLE SEVEN DAYS!!!  This will be the first LONG trip both boys will have been on. Connor, my oldest went up with myself and my parents when he was twelve months old and I was four months pregnant with James.  So this trip will definitely be a different experience now that they will be four and two and a half.

Momma Cooks CookingThird hop on over to Momma Cooks Cooking for the next stop on the Blogging Carnival.  You can send your emails to caleenna at gmail dot com.

Then there will be the little trips to areas near us until school starts back up in August.  Such as the Louisville Zoo and/or the Cincinnati Zoo, one or both of the science museums, then of course the plentiful trips to the park along with some trips to the movies especially on those really HOT days.

So what are your plans for this summer, I'd like to hear about them.

I received this little award from Bloggy Mommy from the Land of AH'S.


Terms of use are:

To receive this award your blog must be exceptional in design and content; presenting us with new knowledge, a sense of style, or at times just giving us a smile!
Each recipient of the award will acknowledge the person who honored them with the award and then go to to copy/paste the award : Your Blog is Over The Top. (located on the right sidebar, scroll down)
Just for fun; I would like to invite you to hit on the Blog Award to see a neat, new website!
The recipient may then pass the award on to 5 others that they feel meet the above criteria.
Please enjoy this honor and consider yourself just a little bit "Over The Top".


Good Golly Miss Blondie handed me the Honest Scrap Award.

10 things about me:

The rules are as follows: Honorees are to list 10 honest things about themselves - and make it interesting, even if we have to dig deep! Second, we are to pass the award on to 7 bloggers we feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

I just did this up above. LOL

So I have a total of 34 bloggers to nominate for all of these. HHHMMMM..... these will have to be completely new because everyone that I know has already received one or the other or both. This will be tough.

Ok well since it's been awhile since I've done awards, if you leave me a comment on ANY of the NEW posts that I've published in the last ten days, take these awards and wear them proudly on your blog.  Then come back here and let me know where you commented along with visiting yours to see it nicely on your place.

I'm glad to have you guys and ladies in my life.  If you've recently given me an award please send me the code in email so that I may wear it on my blog.  I know there have been a few but it's been a VERY LONG TIME!
