Whew! What a week.

Monday, our family started summer vacation at 11:45am (dismissal time for the youngest still in school). Since then it has been a whirlwind of sleepovers (both at home and away) and last minute shopping trips to replace one outgrown bathing suit (that we just bought in April for our Florida trip!) and one burnt out air conditioner (the girls had tons of fun with the box!). Each girl made a list of their top ten must-dos off the master list and we spent a few hours (and almost $200) at Barnes & Nobles, stocking up for the weeks ahead. Mackenna got a haircut and Brielle dyed her hair "Hazelnut" brown. I bit the bullet and bought another new camera (my fourth one in three years) because I'm tired of looking at posts with no pictures and I really wanted to participate in this. I tried to rest in hopes of recovering in a timely fashion from the virus I contracted a few weeks back and unfortunately my MIL broke her hip last night and had to have emergency surgery. So we are heading in to our first summer weekend with visiting her and attending a fortieth birthday cookout for my cousin on our plate. Needless to say, I'm signing off. You can expect me next week with bells on (and hopefully some great pics to share!). I'll leave you with these:

Which one do you like better- untouched or touched up with the "I'm feeling lucky" button in Picasa2. Our family is divided....

Hmmm. I am torn. They are so different. I honestly don't have a fav!

I like the second pic, very striking!

What kind of camera did you get???

Jules said...

Boy, I do like them both. I think the second one is more "moody", if you were trying to achieve a "I'm wandering on the beach alone trying to make sense of my life" feel! :)

It sounds like you have a busy schedule ahead of you! Enjoy the fun and have a great weekend!

Crazy start to Summer Vacation! Hang in there :)

The second one seems to have richer colors, but I like them both!

Sorry about your MIL. I hope she recovers quickly. Good luck with everything this week. I feel in a whirl too since school just ended for us as well.

The second one is very cool - I like it! Sorry you had such a crazy first week of vacation - I hope the next few are more relaxing for you. I love your blog - it's terrific! I LOVE etsy so I'm browsing your "eye candy". Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm glad I made it over here :-)

I added you on Twitter - not b/c I'm stalking you or anything but b/c I'm pretty new to it and I don't have many people to follow yet :-)

Way cute blog! I love all your background designs! I'll have to stop by more often!

Arlene said...

By the way - I like the second picture as well!

~Anne said...

First picture is better - the second one looks retouched and overly so. Don't mess with Mother Nature! :D
