Life Was Beginning All Over Again With Summer Mini AlbumPosted: May 24, 2013
We have been celebrating the new summertime collection by Pebbles, Lakeside, with a whole week of projects over at the Pebbles Blog! I LOVE the new Lakeside collection! It’s everything wonderful about the summertime! That’s why I couldn’t help but make a little “prelude to our summer” mini album using Lakeside. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for school to end and this summer to begin. I love getting my girls back for the summer! Just seven more days and…no more school, no more homework, no more tests, etc. Woo-Hooo!
When it comes to tying bows, I’m not the greatest. So, I did the best I could to tie off some pretty bows on the side cover of my mini album.
I cannot wait to spend time at the pool with my girls. Most summer days are spent at the local pools.
We’ll be at the movies this summer. We cannot wait to see Monsters University and Despicable Me 2!
We also cannot wait to go to the Naperville Ribfest and to some local carnivals this summer.
We’ll visit the Brookfield Zoo and the Morton Arboretum this summer.
We cannot wait to spend time with friends, family, and especially the newest member of our family…Baby Cousin, Ethan! We’ll be hanging out with my sister and her kiddos a lot this summer!
Probably the best part this summer…we are going to Disney World! You know, I guess it worked out last year that we couldn’t go, because then we would have missed out on seeing the new Fantasyland. So happy we are finally going! The girls are SO excited to Dine with the Disney Princesses, see the new Fantasyland, the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and everything else that Disney has to offer. We also will head out to Universal Studios to see the World of Harry Potter. Oooo, I cannot wait! It’s going to be an amazing vacation full of memories that the girls will always remember! The best part for me…a Disney World mini album filled with our week of magic! Woo-Hooo!
We cannot wait to stay up late this summer as well as sleep in!
More waterpark fun…What could be better than having a lazy summer day on a lazy river!?
We cannot wait to go out for ice cream and head out to the library for some summer reading. The girls LOVE reading! Payton is doing so great with her reading and the best part, for me, is that Caitie can read with her and help her out. Payton loves snuggling with her big sissy.
We’ll be hanging out around the house and around the neighborhood. Parks, bike riding, sidewalk chalking, getting together with school friends and neighbors for a summer full of fun activities.
