Last weekend...a little late

So it's already this weekend, but I thought I would share last weekend with you. I was just uploading my photos to get things printed for Project Life and remembered I had some cute pictures to document.  I'm a week behind again in the ole' PL....but life happens...and you thrust forward.

Sunday it was bath day for Romeo.  He had an appointment at the beauty shop so Colin and I did some shopping while dog-dog was getting beautified.  We headed to Rural King for Romeo's favorite raw-hide (pig skin actually....much better to digest). Of course while in Rural King you must help yourself to the free popcorn. And then you must grab a kiddy pool for your dog.  Because it was only $8.00 and chances are if you give an Aussie a pool.....he's gonna want to swim in it.  Time will tell.

Do you know how hard it is to carry a pool around the store while eating popcorn at the same time?

So after we crammed the pool in the car we headed to PetSmart to check on dog-dog.  He was almost finished, just standing on the table thing getting some final touches. As soon as he saw us he decided he was DONE with this beauty shop thing and wanted to go!  So he barked his bloody head off through the glass window.  The sweet girl taking care of him did such a good job.

Back home and all clean he deserved a treat from Rural King....pig's ear.  Yummmmm

Gotta love the iPhone app that makes even a pig's ear look pretty.

While shopping in the big city Papa was at our house getting a surprise ready.  Colin has been bugging his Papa for a few weeks wishing he would help put up a tire swing in our backyard.  Colin knew Papa was working on it and was becoming too impatient.  Well Papa gave in and spent his Sunday afternoon getting it hooked up.

Needless to say...Colin was thrilled.  He swung on that tire until it was dark and freezing cold outside.

I guess you are never too old for a tire swing.

Thanks again Papa!

Well, let's see what this weekend brings.....shall we?

Lazy Blogger

I've been lazy about blogging these days.  Life has just been busy.  Fun and good......just busy.

It's been quiet around home today.  Colin has been outside playing, I've been cleaning, scrapbooking my Project Life because I'm a bit behind and doing some cooking.  Our furry friends are enjoying some lazy time.  Romeo in the sunny kitchen.

Tiger in the dark bedroom.

Gotta love a good Saturday.

Hope yours is going great!

Well a new sport season is amoung us......track.  This is the first year Colin was able to participate and I was a bit surprised he decided to do it.  I'm sure there are people out there that love to run.  Not this Mama.  But Colin wanted to give it a try so here we go.
He had his first meet Thursday.  Colin participated in the high jump, 100 yrd dash and 400 yrd dash.  He actually placed 2nd in the 100 yrd dash!  I guess he is fast from all that running away from me that he does.  :)  HA!

I wasn't really prepared for the meet, forgot my camera so the ole' iPhone camera had to work.  I like this picture for some reason.  Just the beginning of many other running pictures I suppose I will take.  So far the best thing I love about track........the short season.  It only goes 1 1/2 months.  :)

Day off from work

Happy Good Friday!

Colin is out of school for a few days so I decided to take today off from work to share a day with him.  It's been an extra fun day so far.  My internal alarm clock went off at 5:45am so there wasn't any sleeping in for me. But Colin and Tiger took advantage of a no-school day.  This is how I found them at 9:00am (lazy bums).

Around 10:00am I found the other lazy bum in Colin's bedroom.  I guess Colin's bedroom is the place to be if you are tired.

We decided to eat lunch at a local Candy Kitchen.  Colin had him a Green River.

After lunch we went Antiquing.  My boy loves to scrounge for goodies just like his Mama.  We hit a new store in our town that had super cute Retro items from the 50's.  Wish I could have purchased the whole store.  Headed down the road to another Antique store and that is where I found my new man.  His name is Royal.....Caravan Royal to be exact.  I think he is around 40 years old.  Just my type.....Ha....type.  :)  He came home with me today, only cost me $20.00.  Cheap date.

Colin has never played with a real typewriter.  He asked me where spell check was and I cracked up laughing.  Caravan Royal isn't the most handsome, the cuter models are too expensive.  I want to use it for some Project Life tags.  Gotta get his ribbon re-inked and then he will be ready to go.

Already typed up a little card for my PL.  It appears as though I needed that spell check feature.  Oh well....the real joys of typing.

I hope you are enjoying this special Easter weekend.
