whilrwind vacation roundup

June 20, 2010

i might not remember writing this post in a day or 2.  i have been going nonstop for a little more than a week, finishing up with 2 hours of sleep friday in to saturday getting ready for a craft show – i was accepted at 4:30p on friday, had to leave the house at 5a on saturday, and throw in working 7 hours in between that time.   i’ve got a lot of loose ends to pick up, and a bunch of new projects i want to do…  busy busy, fun fun!

breeze was blowing, so the tablecloth is all wonky, but otherwise, i think it looked pretty good!

but i suppose you want to hear about what all happened leading up to this point – you’ve been seeing the pics on flickr and facebook, and we had a GREAT time with auntie bobbie jo.

we saw mystic aquarium – the beluga whales usually swim laps, floating by the people watching at the window… but this one saw bobbie jo and stopped to check her out.  it was AWESOME.

we jumped on the beach (2 beaches, actually)

(this one is out-takey, but it makes me laugh)

we hunted down painted horses and turkeys, and my assignment for next year is to find a very specific painted turkey we all would like to see…

sesame was great – warm and not-rainy, and sometimes sunny.

the grown ups ROCKED the visors. 

oh, look who enjoyed the lazy river…

hopscotch on sesame street – i would’ve LOVED to do this when i was 5…

and crayola on the way home – very fun, hands on projects.  i don’t know that i’d make it a destination, but it was a good time on the way home.

 

and it certainly gave me some craft ideas to do with the girls….

after i get some rest.

my hair *is* wild.

June 8, 2010

i’ve got a wild hair, i’m manic, i’ve got my hands on lots of things.  it must mean that company is on her way and it’s almost time for vacation.  i’m heavy into all things sesame street right now, and tinkering in a few things unrelated.

the sesame street visors, are TOO cute.

i’ve been dipping oreos:

 and

and dipping balloons…  this idea came straight from bakerella , where most of my ideas begin.  hers had homemade pudding in them, but i cannot STAND pudding, so i’m gonna fill ours with dirtcake… also because there is NO shortage of oreos in this house right now.

in progress

i’m about to go pop the balloons now and see what happens.  you’ll hear all about it if it’s a nightmare! =D
