Cameron Park Lake Weekend

We went to visit Cameron Park Lake and see Dane's sister and her kids. My kids had a ton of fun, they love hanging out with their cousins.

June Creative Project

I don't know why, but I got it into my head that I wanted to have 4th of July outfits for the kids this year. So, I finished the skirts for the girls.

Trying Something New

Well, we no longer have unlimited access to a pool. We don't really have any friends on the block that have a pool, and the house "cooled down" to 82 last night since there was no breeze. So I had to do something for my kids who are having some heat issues. SO I went to the store and got a slip and slide and a pool. (The slip and slide was 5 bucks, I mean, how could I not? It doubles as a great sprinkler for the dying back lawn.) We set up the slip and slide when we got home and the kids got to try it for a bit. They were really having fun. Maybe I will join them next time...

Reusing Cast Members

I have noticed a problem lately when it comes to movies. If there are characters in the movie that I have seen in something else, it seems to ruin how much I can get into the movie. I bet this is one of the reasons that actors and actresses get type casted.

For example - I am watching a show, and this character comes on as the bad guy. The problem is that this person played the main characters brother in another episode. Oh, and was a poet in the one before that.

Or in movies, if the main character is someone famous. Wait, she was the evil witch, and now she is a loving and amazing mother? Maybe this is a good thing though. Maybe I will watch less movies because of it.

Not my Camera - but still a good picture

Alanna is all done with Tee-ball. Today was her awards ceremony and she got a trophy and a cute little dog tag.

I love my little Yankee. She did such a good job.

Sleepy Lydi

Alanna never really fell asleep in interesting places or positions. She did sleep once on the kitchen floor. Asher mostly fell asleep in his johnny jump up and I would try really hard to not wake him as I moved him to his bed. On the other hand Lydia, she is a little more interesting. Last summer she fell asleep sitting down and fell forward so her head was between her feet. Well, the other night I came out to see this. She was about 10 steps up, as sound asleep as you please.

So it appears I was hacked at some point. But apparently it was not the usual - send an inappropriate email to everyone you know - kind of job. Some people got my first one (that I heard of) and three people got my last one.

I have managed to get my account back (it was in Arabic, it took a little doing) and hopefully these emails will stop. I apologize to all who may have gotten something from me. I just hope you all know me well enough to know that whatever those emails were, I did not send them.
