happy memorial day!

so we went camping this weekend at highbanks... we had so much fun! the kids ride their bikes ALL day! we go to the playground, go for walks, ride bikes, go on the boat, and fish. ok, so that's what the kids do... we hang out and drink beer and eat by the fire!
clay thinks he's 35... and thinks he can drive the boat better than ANYONE!
carter wanted to "drive da boat like my brudder!"
we really need to break chippy of the binkie...
gerry, loving life on the boat
chip has his own chair and likes sit at the fire like a big boy...
and here is the new shower... we have been going to highbanks for years now, and they finally got new bathrooms. we were a bit excited! the showers are super nice now!

x games?

so this is what we did friday after school... hung out in the yard while my children ran around like motorhead animals. clay had his backpack on with a bottle of water in it "just in case i get thirsty when i'm riding". i tried to explain to him that he would be in the yard, and if he was thirsty, he could just go inside and get a drink... apparently that wasn't cool enough.

supernanny, where are you???

so this is carter at clay's swimming lesson on monday... gerry was mowing, so i had to take him with me. this should not have been a problem... it's only 45 minutes! yeah, well he flipped out when he realized that he was not allowed in the pool... and the biggest temper tantrum EVER ensued. seriously... he is out of control.

but he's so damn cute... rockin his run dmc shirt
here is clay last weekend at a friend's pond... he thought he was babe winkleman! he came home telling me all about all the fish he caught...

and here is my display at canfield's landscaping and garden center... go there and buy your mother's day stuff... :)

a busy, busy night!

so i have been quite busy... i got 3 aprons made this evening! why am i in such a tizzy to get these made you may ask??? well let me tell you...
my brother in law and sister in law (gerry's sister and her husband) currently own a landscaping business called canfield's landscaping. they have recently purchased and fixed up a former nursery/garden center in hamburg... it used to be called the water valley nursery, but it is now called Canfield's Landscaping and Garden Center! this is SO exciting!!! what is my point and how does this relate to me making aprons you may ask? well at Canfield's Landscaping and Garden Center, i will be selling my stuff! they will be carrying my key fobs, wallets, checkbook covers, traveling art kits, bags etc. as well as my new creation... the gardening aprons! my sister will be selling her handmade jewelry there as well.
i just think that these aprons are the cutest! they make me want to start gardening!!!
ok, so i probably won't start gardening (eew! dirt, worms, bugs, snakes etc.), but maybe i will start wearing one to cook! or perhaps i will just wear one just cuz it's cute...
so anyhoo, my point is this... if you live in the buffalo area and you are looking for some plants, shrubs, flowers, garden supplies, jewelry or sewn creations, stop by! Canfield's Landscaping and Garden Center is located on Route 62 in Hamburg NY between the Village of Hamburg and beautiful ole Eden! come check it out! =)
