I went to Target to get the amazing beverage cooler 90% off and came home with no beverage cooler

Apparently today I am the mother who gets her kids whatever (one thing) they want in the toy/makeup isle. What's with that? It must have something to do with being gone for a week. Good thing I don't work!

Grayson did want "the HUGE Buzz Lightyear!!!" But really $129? (Rebecca if you see the really huge Buzz on 90% off just buy it and I'll pay you back.)

Okay and I made this apron for Nedra's future daughter-in-law's bridal shower tomorrow. If I'm super ambitious I'll get over to Harbor Freight and get my favorite $3 hammer and spray paint it for the bride also. But who am I kidding, Harbor Freight is a 15 minute drive in 45 minute traffic. We'll see.

Khristie- no pockets in this one either and I've decided I officially HATE the patterns I bought. There were 3 different aprons in the same pattern and they are all RETARDED when it comes to sewing the waist ties on! But it's not so bad to look at though yeah? Just don't turn it around to inspect.

The kids went to Fresno the week I was at camp. Here's what they learned with Mom and Manuel!

Girls Camp Mammoth Lakes, CA

The start of an 8 mile round trip hike with 2 of the girls who wanted a little something more than a stroll through the woods. Justin forgot to tell us the LAST mile was STRAIGHT UP!

Justin promised these 2 ice cream if they got in up to their shoulders in the freezing cold lake. (we were up at least 9,000 feet) Teenagers will do just about anything for ice cream apparently!

But the rock was warm.

I couldn't let the girls AND Justin show me up. (No never mind I had to get in like 3 TIMES to get a pic of it!)

Devil's Postpile.

Rainbow Falls.

All the girls. Such a great group. Not one complaint the whole trip. Except the part where I fixed my hair (blow dried it) the first day. There are only a few electrical outlets where we were tent camping. The girls didn't know where they were and I wouldn't tell them until we were getting ready for this outing into "town". The beauty of tent camping for girls camp... every girl was welcomed to bring their cell phone, but there was no reception or power, HA! And there was no "lights out", but they had to bring their own lights, ha HA!!! So entertaining.

Gondola ride up to the top of Mammoth Mountain.

Mammoth Lakes.

A few of our adventures.

Pics of me

Remember when I got my hair cut? First thing I did was call my friend Kiley to see if she'd take some pics and here are my favs! So maybe photoshop doesn't take off a few chins, but she made my eyes look amazing! LOVE it! Thanks Kiley!
