Project 365 - Week 34...

Last week was an awesome week! We had our second "kids appreciation getaway," plus my birthday was on Friday...

Monday, August 17: I like how this closeup of Tony's layout came out...
Wednesday, August 19: A rainy drive up to the North Shore (Lake Superior) for our getaway with the kids...


Wednesday, August 19 part two: We started my birthday celebration early at our cabin on the lake - that way we could have cake for two days!...

Thursday, August 20: Family fun at Split Rock Lighthouse - LOL (Left to right is me, Michael, Becca, Tony and Steve)...
and this pic of the lighthouse itself will go in the extra journaling space for the week...

Friday, August 21: Don't the kids look tiny in this huge chair?...

Saturday, August 22: Back home Johnny and Willie greet us warmly...

Sunday, August 23: Finding the correct chipboard letters for a layout is a group effort...

and that's my week! Our family getaway was a lot of fun. It rained the entire time, but that didn't stop us from getting out, seeing some sights and taking pics (many of which will be showing up in future layouts I'm sure). Our cabin was nice and cozy too, good for having a fire in the fireplace. Most of all, it's just great getting all three kids together for a few days and spending time as a family. Just beautiful.

So, I'm off to work on my layout for the Favorite Things Blog, which is all about movies this time. This should be lots of fun!!! I will be back tomorrow with another update - thanks sooo much for stopping by!

Sorting those Melissa Frances letters... yeah, I put those in alpha order the second I got them! LOL. I knew they'd frustrate me later if I didn't! LOL. And now they're all laying out to stay that way! Ah well. ;)

Cute photos! And mmm... cake! I would love to eat that cake in two days as well! LOL. :D
