Last Day of July

I can't believe July is over already. Elizabeth starts school again on Monday, my 12th wedding anniversary is this Sunday and I will be 33 next month. Time flies right?

I told a couple people that I would post some of the other photos I took with my underwater camera. I haven't scrapped them yet, but I will throw them up anyway.

I think I might get these blown up and hang them on the wall.

Some photos from this past weekend

I took some photos with an underwater camera in my Dad's pool last weekend. I had them developed today and had to throw together a layout with some of the cuter shots.

Background for my computer

I have been really into this digital scrapbooking stuff lately. I made a collage for my computer's background.

Lego Beaver

This post is dedicated to my sister Sherri, who collects beavers. A picture of the kids next to a LegoLand beaver.

The Beach

I am playing around with my digital scrapbook skills a little bit. These are photos from last Monday, June 23. We were down in San Diego staying with my sister and we took the kids to the beach. For my kids it was the first time seeing the ocean. Although, having been on the shores of Lake Erie I don't think the ocean looked much different to them. I think it is hard to grasp the hugeness of the ocean when you are 3 or 5 years old. They had a great time playing in the sand and digging for sand crabs. It was perfect weather for the beach, and we only had a couple of minor spots get minor sunburns. Liam loved the ocean, and had a great time walking in the waves with his aunt Jennifer. Elizabeth was not quite so thrilled, and it took quite a bit of coaxing from her cousin Shelby before she would even go in past her knees. We ate sandwiches and had snacks, and then headed home in the late afternoon. What a great day.

swim lessons

Today was the beginning of a whole month of swim lessons. The kids really enjoyed it and I already remember the hassle of getting everybody ready just to take them to the pool everyday for 25 minutes. I am just hoping that this year they will really get something out of it and maybe have some swimming skills.
