All Aboard!!!!

Welcome to stop #22 on the ScrapMatters 2nd birthday blog train!!! You were hopefully just at Jeni's blog (if not, you can always go back).

As you probably already know, the kit we've used for all the goodies on this train is perfect for summer picnics and barbeques. So we're all sharing our favorite summer memory to go along with this. And while I don't have one specific favorite memory, I do have something to share. When I was a kid my dad would take us out on the Ohio river for boat rides. I remember we'd pull over to the shore and build a little fire to roast hot dogs when we were hungry. I still only like hot dogs when they've been cooked over an open fire. And as soon as I taste them, it feels like I'm right back on the banks of the river, roasting hot dogs with my dad. Good memories. :)

Here's my freebie for you guys....a 12x12 quickpage with openings for 5 photos!


Go {here} to download it. And here's what I did with it....


I didn't scrap picnic pictures with it, but I think it still looks great (if I do say so myself).

Your next stop is Cyndi's blog. Have fun on your trip!!!!

Mari singing

Mari wanted to sing a song and record it and I thought she did such a good job that I decided to post it here. After she was finished singing, we watched it back and she giggled to herself the whole time. She was so proud of herself (and so am I).

In case you can't understand her, here are the lyrics....

I am a child of God and He has sent me here,
Has given me an earthly home with parents kind and dear.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do to live with Him some day.

wedding dance

I thought this was so cool when I saw it...what a great way to celebrate your wedding and the start of your marriage.



Then I saw this today and thought it was SO funny.
