weekend recap and winner!

First and foremost, I have a winner from my giveaway last week. Thanks to all that played along; I appreciate everyone’s honesty about how they feel about their personal work.

…but as we all know with these giveaways, I can only pick one winner.

Congrats, Brigid! Shoot me an email at redoaklines[at]gmail[dot]com, and I’ll get that mini album out to you prompto!

There was definitely some fun times this weekend hanging out with the family. It had been a while since we drove up to see everyone, so we figured it was about time. Besides, we had some errands to run out in the area.

Gloria had lots of fun longboarding down the street.

Maui enjoyed hitching a ride with her too! She used to ride with Gloria when she was a puppy, so I knew she wasn’t going to be terrified. As a matter of fact, she absolutely loved the thrill of the ride. She’s such a chill dog and loves adventures.

We have yet to try surfing with Maui, but I’m sure she’d love sitting on the end of the board while riding a wave.

Hilo, on the other hand, was terrified of the thought of sitting on the board. He kept fidgeting and trying to jump off of it, so we gave up trying to teach him how to ride on the longboard, haha! 😉

Miss Nano Banano (Natalie) and I had lots of fun annoying my little brother. He doesn’t like when we play the “Southern Accent” game together, haha! …so what do we do?! We annoy him by playing our game.

…and here’s Sean and Natalie. I love you guys; you’re adorable together! ((Nano — I’m so glad that he cooked you a special omelette! I knew you’d like it!))

…and before he ended up taking the longest afternoon nap ever, here’s my older brother, Scott! He’s super entertaining because he’s always making everyone laugh.

The dogs rolled around in the grass like a bunch of hooligans. Okay, okay… I admit! We were all rolling around in the grass like a bunch of hooligans.

I wish days were always like this, but alas life is how it is. 😉 Reminding myself that there are wonderful days like this will motivate me until another fantastic day arrives.

I have one layout to share today. I had leftover American Craft‘s Amy Tangerine stuff lying out in my scrap room, so I couldn’t resist playing with it.

Hooray for a fun weekend and creating with cool, new scrapbooking stuff! Now that I have loads of new photos to print, I see a lot of projects in the making.

PS: God has blessed us in so many ways. Thanks for reminding me about those that are not as fortunate. 😉
