Weekend Wrap-up

If you follow me on Instagram, you would've noticed a lot of time spent time outdoors last week when it was nice out...most of it at baseball games, practice overlaps and walking Diego. Seems it's what spring break is all about with high school athletes. I'm not complaining, it was actually really nice to slow down and catch some games as well as walking the trails at the high school. Rainy days though, we were all like Diego...looking outside and wanting it to warm up. I did use that time to go through 6 boxes of products - new and re-stocks!!!
Saturday, the boys had the day off from sports so we let them sleep in and I spent the time in the kitchen baking before heading to a friend's for a baptism party. Check out my big boys supervising all the younger ones in the playroom. It's what happens when you're the oldest kids in the FRamily! Totally wishing I had taken a group picture of all the kids but I was busy chatting and I'm sure there are pics floating around somewhere.
Sunday, varsity had morning practice so we attended early mass before heading to practice. Hubby and I brought Diego along so we could walk the trails with him while we waited for practice. It was so nice out and only an hour long practice. We walked the cross country trail and marveled at how the kids run it in under 30minutes. We walked for an hour and only made it through the first 2 miles...we did also stop and let Diego run to his heart's content at the top of the hill.
All in all it was a wonderful and restful weekend. Now it's back to reality, lots of games, practices, travel and back to back crop weekends! I hope to see you at one of them :)

Sneaky Sunday

Coming soon! A few years ago, we took a trip to Cocoa Beach Florida and signed the boys up for a surf camp. Fast forward a few years, I stumbled on these cool surfing papers and a surfing layout kit was born! Papers look yellow/off-white in the photo but are actually white.

Weekend Wrap-up

Finally finding a few moments to come back to the blog. I'm going to go back a few weekends to when I had the opportunity to spend a weekend with the girls at Purity Springs. This is an amazing event if you haven't checked it out...they actually start on a Tuesday and go through Sunday!!! I have the best space ever...right next to the shuttle pick-up door, ideal for meeting and chatting with all the scrappers.
I also love the fact that White Mountain Laser is there for the weekend and I took the opportunity to get some custom sign work done.
Yes it did snow while I was there, a little over a foot and business went on as usual. There was a shuttle to get you to the restaurant for meals and staff was on hand to help clean off cars and shovel. Although by Sunday, it was warm enough the snow just slid off the top of the cars and there was minimal shoveling.
 The resort was closed for skiing but it didn't stop some very determined skiers...they snow shoed up and skied down! Some of the scrappers even took the opportunity to sled. It looked like a lot of fun. Note to self: if snow is in forecast next year, pack snow pants!

Missing in Action

I have been MIA on here for a bit and you have my apologies. 4 crops in one month plus the start of baseball season has me running in circles. I will be back next week...please bear with me while I get used to our family's new routine. In the meantime...
And because I am stealing and image from an etsy store, here is the link to it in case you would like to purchase one for yourself.
