Love Mask

So, I was up yesterday at 6 something am. Jacob had his GT testing at 8:15am, and I wanted a shower - LOL! Vain, I know. But sometimes, you just wanna look pretty. My hair didn't quite fix as well as my makeup (LOL), so I just put it in a bandanna. I do LOVE my bandannas , you know.

We dropped Jacob off at the testing center, and all headed to the grocery store. Jim, Joe, Eme, Tom and I. I had my money envelope, and my shopping list (to go with my menu). AND, I was even under budget. I had $200 for the week, and I only spent $156 (and that included a $2.00 tip for the bagger). Sa-weet!

We were home and putting the groceries by 10am. Captain America got home for lunch at 11:25am, and said that he didn't need to go back till 3pm. He said that he'd pick up Jake, and the kids and I loaded up in the truck, and headed to the sprinkler park. We were supposed to meet our friends there at 11am. Luckily, Katy got there late too - she was only there for 5 minutes before us :)

They had bouncy castles, bouncy water things, and food. Apparently every Wednesday at 9:30am there gonna have activities like that there, then lunch at 11am. I'm SO there. That's our new Wednesday routine. The closed up shop about 15 minutes after we got there, so we mosied down to the sprinkler park. Next time, we'll be there early :)

I got a few pics of us a lunch, but none from the sprinkler park. Here's Joe

And Jim

And lunch - Ham/cheese hoagie sandwiches, milk, potato salad, and watermellon

My friend Katy, and her son Eric (he's 8)

And her daughter Emily (she's 13)

And here's me :)

And here's me and my boys!
We stayed until 1:15pm, then came home. There's only so much sprinkler-ing that the big kids can handle - LOL! Today is the pool - it'll be better :)

I spent the rest of the afternoon designing. The kids did their chores (ok, I helped a little bit), and Jimmy had some "down" time with PBS. It was a nice, relaxing afternoon. Eme and Tom went to Laurie's house to play with her kids at around 3:30pm. We picked them up on the way to scouts.

I decided, that since I'm in charge, and we have no leaders (well, 1/2 no leaders that come, 1/2 no leaders), that we're gonna just have Pack Activities for July and August. We're doing a Swimming meeting, a Basketball meeting, a Marshmallow Shooter activity (LOVE the PVC marshmallow shooter gun!), and a Bike rodeo. Should be good!

Scouts was very short. No one had activities planned (go figure on that one), so we just helped a new boy get his Bobcat. We were home by 8pm. Gotta like that :)

So, since I have a few new Mask WordArt packs coming out this Friday, I thought that I'd make you up a Mask freebee! Aren't you excited??? I found this WONDERFUL website for Brushes, and as long as you credit them in your TOU, they're CU friendly. Fantastic! I LOVE it :) I have their website down below my preview - give them a look-see - you'll like them too :)

I love that mask!! Seriously, I want to know HOW you do that. I have CS4 and need to take a course or something. I also think you look fantastic in your photos! I wish I looked that good in a bandanna!
