Ride On!!!

This is a page I did of Ryan learning to ride his bike. I was the one to teach him while dusty was at work so I only have pictures after he learned, but the picture on this page was just soooo cute I thought. The sun on him with him just riding away!!! The layout is sketch #35 off of 52 sketches...52weeks

Fantastic Idea!!!

My mother-in-law sent me an email with this video on it and I think that it is such a cute idea for you to scrapbook each school year your child has. I love it and am going to try and do it for Ryan and Jordyn. Ryan is already in first grade, so I will miss his Kindergarten one, but I am sooooo glad I got this now rather than when he was in like Junior High or something.

Bday Boy!!


Here is the page I did of Ryans birthday party at classic skating!! I think it turned out pretty good! I got the sketch from 52sketches.....52weeks #34. I love that website. It takes the hard part out of making a page. They have such cute layouts. And since lately I have been in the scrapbooking mood, it is great!!!

What do you think?????

I made this scrapbook page of Jordyn and I am thinking that it needs something. I didn't want to put a big title on it or anything because I didn't want to take away from the pictures, but I almost think that it needs something more. If you think it does or doesn't, please leave a comment. By the way, these pictures were taken by the photographer at Kats wedding. She captured some great moments with my little princess!!!

My Boy!!

I just finished this page of Ryan!! I took these pictures when we went camping up Hope campground. I thought they turned out really good. I basically copied this page from the one my sister, shelly, did of Ryan. What can I say, I see something I like, I imitate it!!

Hiking up to Timp Cave!!!

We decided that we were going to hike up to Timp Cave on Sunday. I haven't been there since I was really little, so I was really excited to go. It was a way hard hike for someone of my size, but it wassoooooo worth it. The caves were sooooo awesome!!! Ali and Greg and their kids and Becca and Julia came with us!!! It was great!!! I am sooooo glad that we did it. By the end the kids were tired and hungry, but they had fun!!!! Oh and the best part...............IT WAS FREE!!! For this weekend only all the national parks were doing free admission to the parks andTimp cave was doing free tours!!! SO SCORE!!!
The start of the hike!

Me and Ali!!

Everyone way ahead of me and Ali!

We are just to dang cute!

Totally Awesome!!
At the end of the tour!!

Ryans Bday Party!!

So we had Ryan's birthday party on Saturday at classic skating!! It was a riot. Funny thing is he did hardly any skating at all. They had a big bounce thing set up in the middle of the skating rink, so most of his time was spent there. It actually worked out great because he originally wanted to go to Kangaroo Zoo, a place with a bunch of bouncy houses, but they were way to expensive so he got the best of both worlds. Linda and her family, Ali and Greg and their kids, Shelly and Garrett, and Ryans 2 friends (Makoy and Ryan) all came to enjoy the day!!! It was fun!!!

Riding with no training wheels!!

So today I decided that I was going to take Ryan down to the church and teach him how to ride his bike without training wheels. So we walked down and I helped him for about 5 minutes and he caught on right away!! Unfortunately I can't take a picture of myself teaching him, and Dusty was at work, but when Dusty got home, we went down again and I got some good pictures of him. He does really well on flat ground or going downhill, but going up he still struggles a little bit, but I figure he will get better with time!! He is growing so much!! He turns 7 in 11 days!!! Wow he isn't my baby anymore!!

Baseball Page!!

I was looking at my sisters scrapbook pages on face book last night because I couldn't sleep and it got me thinking that I really need to start scrap booking again if I ever plan on being on top of things. So this morning I got up got the kids fed and decided to scrapbook Ryan's Coach Pitch baseball picture. It is really simple, but cute. It is really hard to work with an 8X10 picture, but this will do. I think it looks good. I am planning on doing another page with the candid shots that I took at his game to go along with this one.
