We went camping this weekend for our first paintball trip of the season. It was Flower's first camping trip and we all had a fabulous time. She didn't sleep all that great which meant that we didn't but we just spent Monday catching up and all is well. Here are some photo highlights.

Flower loved her pink camp chair and lounged about while KG got our tent set up.

I loved watching her play with all the kids too. She fit right in. It was so nice to be in such a wide open space to just let her roam without having to watch her every move, for the most part.

She wasn't a big fan of the bat we found or the any of the bugs, especially the stink bugs that J kept shoving in her face! She was a good sport though.

I helped her make her first S'More and she loved that!

She had a great time with Uncle Monkey, or Bunkey as she calls him. John and KG played the toss game with the kids like usual and this was her first time. She loved it as much as the other kids.

I got this amazing shot of them throwing T. He looks like an angel! He's that straight thing up in the air, perpendicular to the tree! Amazing!

It was so fun to tuck her into daddy's mummy bag and fall asleep in the mountains that night.

Saturday I took her to the cabin to see her papa. She was delighted to get chocolate from him as they sat on the logs around the new fire pit!

I then took her on a hike and had so much fun taking photos of her at some of the places I never want to forget.

KG's paintball game was going on all throughout the day as well and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

There was tons of kids, tons of fun and lots of relaxation! :)

Sunday, in a rare moment of being alone while everyone else was at the cabin, I enjoyed watching this little creature just inches away from me. It had to be perfectly quiet or he'd bolt.

As we were packing up our tent we released this beautiful little friend back into the wilderness.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Weekend! We sure did. :)

Nice Surprise!

I decided to check my store one last time before leaving out of town and was thrilled to see that I'd sold my first skirt! This lucky gal gets a special gift for being my first customer! i am so excited and that made my weekend. Now I can go enjoy myself and not wonder if I'll ever sell anything! YAY! Have a great weekend everyone! I know we will. This is Flower's first camping trip. Should be fun!
Hiking here we come!
Peace out!

etsy debut

I have finally opened up an online shop to sell all the things I make. The link is www.myplayground.etsy.com. I am so excited! I have wanted to have an online shop for some time and finally took the plunge. It will be fun to create things for the shop and it also gives me a purpose for those things I'm dieing to make but have no use for! Now I can sell them! :) Have a look around and tell me what you think.
I will add stuff often.

Fireballs and Pippy Longstalking

Here are a some photos I've taken recently of Flower.

The first was the other night. She insisted on trying a fire ball candy. I figured she'd realize it was hot and spit it out and not want it. Well, she did spit it out when it got hot but she must have forgotten because she wanted it back. I gave it back and she wanted that damn candy so bad that she was crying saying ouch and hot and still wouldn't spit it out!

She finally gave in and gave it back to me after I got some photos. Now whenever she sees the bag of fireballs she points and says, 'hot! yuck!'. :) At least she learns. Can you see those tears running down her face in the last photo? Silly kid!

The next set were taken yesterday morning.

We didn't pull out Flower's pig tails when she went to bed so this is how she woke up! So cute! I couldn't believe they were sticking straight out making her resemble Pippi Longstalking.

It made eating eggs so much cuter! She loves her photo taken so she insisted on one with daddy too! :) What a cute pair!

Flower the beautician

Last night Flower and I were chillin' on the coach and she stood up next to me and started to play with my hair. She then hopped down and went into the bathroom. When she came out she had two yellow, matching barrettes in hand. She got back up on the sofa and proceeded to play beautician. She was so sweet about it. I grabbed the camera to attempt to capture the moment which was hard to do since she would then look at it. I wanted it to be candid.

KG got out of bed just in time and took over camera duty.
Here's the finished product. Aren't I cute?! :)

Let's kick it.

can you dig it?
