Sun and Crafting...what a wonderful weekend

Well we finally saw the sun this weekend, it's been so long seeing it here that I almost forgot what it looked like ;)
Unfortunately not the whole weekend was spent outside, not realizing it was going to be nice I promised my youngest that I would take him today to see Cars, we took the Trev to see Harry Potter earlier this week (what a great movie!!) so this was only fair, just really didn't want to be in a theatre during one of our only nice days of the summer.

After spending time in the garden, kids running through the sprinkler and having a great bbq dinner I finally found some time to finish some new cupcake toppers..these will be added to the Etsy shop tomorrow. Just as a reminder they can be customized with other colors and coming soon for all sets will be coordinating invitations and tags for treat bags.

Both the Winnie the Pooh and Dora sets are sets of 12.

Cheers :)

Planning for our first camping trip- assistance please :)

I came home from work a month or so ago and received a very elaborate drawing from my then 5 year old. It depicted an image of a campfire and smores (they were black and I was advised that they were overcooked, lol).

The writing on this picture noted Yo Mom Y don't we go camping? Looking at this picture I realized that we have been on many vacations to places that many young kids don't go, now this has always been my plan I want to experience the world with my kids, but we have never taken a camping trip. I grew up camping on an almost weekly basis so this blew me away that we had not yet done this.
So here I am now trying to figure out what is needed to put this trip together and make this an awesome time.

I have noted before I am a list person, so the list goes together this weekend, I mean we have nothing camping related, not even a cooler. This is just a weekend trip so the list shouldn't be too long but I really want to be sure that the boys experience all they can of camping. The only reason I can be happy about this awful cold and rainy weather is that I hope we have had enough of it so we don't have a campfire ban when we get away, I mean really why camp if you can't have a campfire ;)

If anybody has any great ideas for menu ideas or tips for making the list a little shorter that would be greatly appreciated.

Had to run away to find summer

I have been reading a bunch of blogs lately of others speaking of their hot summers, well I am not sure of what is going on here in our area but we didn't have Spring and still have not seen Summer!

So we ran away for a couple weeks to find to the Caribbean and Orlando. We had an absolutely wonderful time and honestly it was hard to come back. On the trip back I was hoping we would land and find that summer arrived while we were gone, well not so...the rain has not stopped and hoodies are required in the evenings...just crazy!
