Did you know that the 4th of July is also my birthday? It sure is! I had quite the busy weekend and boy oh boy, did I score some great stuff! I took pictures all day long but a lot of them came out blurry so I just saved the ones I could. I'm glad I was able to save the ones I did because what would a party be without my blog buddies? So, grab your tanning lotion, sunglasses and fruity umbrella drink and join us :) These are the things that we did:
We lounged around in the sun
We went for a swim and learned new tricks like, "being the dolphin" or "the fish"
We laughed quite a bit and had a couple of mood swings here and there :)
There was fishing. Or rubber ducky-ing, whichever you prefer :)
There was "out-of-pool-snorkling". This is what happens when a couple of ladies spray perfume in the car on the way to see fireworks. Little man has quite the theatrical side :)
And of course, there were fireworks with booms so loud, you could literally feel them in your chest :)
As for the goods, I got the prettiest present from Dad and Ginny! I also received a really cool basket of fresh herbs and habanero marmalade and strawberry jam from my aunt and uncle. I even got super cool art stuff from my mom! :) (Thanks again for the presents you guys!)
Seriously, is that not the most beautifully wrapped present? *Smiles* It turned into a daisy growing kit! How awesome is that?!
Above: The daisy kit, basket of herbs including sweet basil (my favorite!), cilantro, dill, thyme, and tarragon. *Swoon*
Below: The awesome art stuff from my mom. 3 dimensional paints, clay, clay tools, star stickers, halloween stickers, and shiny circular stickers. As well as a couple of new friends :) *Love*
I can't wait to paint this little dude and dudette!
Speaking of presents, I don't know about you but personally, I only get boring bills in the mail. Therefore, I am looking for someone who feels the same and would like to participate in a random trade :) If that person is you, leave a comment and I will enter your name to be the other trader! You could get these goodies:
A journal, a mini cocktail stamp, 3 pretty flower pens and a great big lollipop! :)
Thanks everyone and have a great week!
