Second time around...

Okay, I am going to try again... Yeah!!! It is working!!!
So, here is some cute pictures of Matteo and Daddy hanging out at the river.

Daddy thought it would be fun to freak Mommy out and take Matteo into the middle of the river. I know it doesn't look deep in these pictures, but it dropped off dramatically from about a foot to about 10 feet very quickly!

Ron said he was trying to teach Matteo how to "surf" the rocks in this picture. That rock was very unsteady and he was bouncing back and forth on it!

I had to beg for this shot! Daddy actually looking at the camera and smiling... on purpose! Matteo too, I think it may be a record!

And remember I mentioned how much we ate this weekend? Here is a cute one of Ron teaching Matteo how to use a fork.

Eating Smores!

And then playing with the roasting stick...

I think this might be one of my favorites... my boys and my pups! Love it!

So I also finished a few layouts, not from camping, but just a few layouts so I will leave you with a few pictures. These will be part of some that I will be doing for a class in August. They are some of my more simple layouts, but I love the colors and the balance of them.
I thought that the "parts" of this robotic theme would be too cute with naked pictures... carefully cropped ... hehe

I put the journaling in one of the gears. It reads: One day you'll hate that I took "naked" pics of you, but I couldn't help it! I love all of you. Your curly blonde hair, your non-existent eyebrows, your belly button, your chubby fingers & thighs... I love it all... every little inch!

This is one of him at Daddy's baseball games. He loved the bats. Picking them up, dragging them around, and putting them back. I think he could have done it for hours. I just loved the colors of these papers. Originally it was going to say "Super Star" bit I thought this title was better.
I loved the stickles... to add that bling (it's hard with boys) in the little holes of the title. I think it added texture to the layout.

Anyway, that's all for today. Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think!

Love the LOs, your composition works really well to balance the photos over two pages. Lovely colours too :)
