Love our weekends and quality time together!

It really has been a fun weekend and we have certainly made the most of every second of every day. I love being able to hang out with my daughter and enjoy the quality time we have with each other and our friends. I hope you found time to enjoy your kids and weekend!

On Friday after school got out we had several friends come over for a swim. I love to see the kids all having fun and getting along. It could not have been a better afternoon and evening hanging out with Alyssa, Katelyn, Shazy, RJ and Ryan. It was pool time with some pizza and snacks for dinner!

On Saturday we went and watched Katelyn play her last softball game. She is just too cute, on Friday she won the award for most stylish and I will say she continued to live up to that on the softball field. I will try to post some long overdue pictures today.

Then we were off to the city water park with Shazy where we also met up with Katelyn and her mom Kathy. It was a lot of fun and VERY HOT! After a short nap Demi got up and went to see the movie UP 3D with Shazy and her dad. She said is was good and so funny! Upon arriving at home she was out on the couch for the night. She was exhausted to say the least after getting to bed late on Friday and up on Saturday topped off with lots of sunshine.

I have been working on my Project 365 finally. I have been printing pictures for the past 6 weeks now that I have some ink for my printer. I will try to get all my pictures in the book today while trying to get caught up on the journaling cards. I think in 22 weeks since I started in December I have only missed one day of taking picture. The idea of this book is to document everyday for a year in our life. I have loved taking the pictures and find it hard on some days to choose which picture I will use. Anyone else doing this book?

Some blogs I have enjoyed this past week are as follows and I wanted to thank each of them personally for taking the time to write daily for so many of us to enjoy. Thank you!

http://www.aliedwards.typepad.com/ - you have to see this idea that she has on her blog today. ast night I was thinking that I might start writing about one person every day in our lives that we are thankful for and why. This flower that she has on there would be perfect to use with this idea.

I will be back to post again with our POTD and some pages from our Project 365. This is being made by both Demi and I sharing the camera so you get her 8 year old perspective as well as mine.

Hugs,
Diana
