Busy but fun week.

Had a good week. The girls are done with school. The first day I took them and a friend to Fort Niagara beach, they had a blast, got completely soaked. It was fun just watching them have so much fun! We took them to see the fireworks over Niagara Falls on Friday night. I really thought they would be more impressed with the falls....they were bored, lol. How can you be bored with that much power right in front of you. Guess you have to be a little older to enjoy the beauty of it. 
I wanted to get to an indie fair that was going on in Buffalo this past weekend, but it rained most of Saturday so I guess I'll have to catch the next one. I also one a little something on the littlest polly blog, so exciting!! Which in turn has inspired me to do a give away very soon, hopefully I can get to it this week. Now I just need more followers!!!
Have a Happy Sunday everyone!!

Happy Summer!!!

A view of Toronto from Fort Niagara. I really should take my 70-300mm lens the next time I go there! Anyhow, it's the first day of Summer and it was a beautiful 80 degree day! What are your summer plans? The girls only have 3 days left of school, so I need to start planning some activities for them! First thing is taking the girls to see Niagara Falls. We live 10 minutes away and I have never taken them!!! So Friday we are going to my sil's for about an hour of swimming, then going to the Falls, then we plan on sticking around to see the fireworks there...something I've never done! I really want to do a lot this year...hope we can pack it all in!

Yard sale finds!!

I would have to say it was a good yard sale day! Plus a few things for my daughters. I didn't spend much over $20. Gotta love it! Now I need to buy a few cans of spray paint for a few makeovers and I'll be all set!

All Dogs Go To Heaven

We lost our Beautiful Sara tonight. She was truly the best dog ever. The girls could do and have done everything imaginable to her and she never once growled or snipped at them. She put up with so much, she was a wonderful protector, a man's best friend indeed. Love you Sara....Rest in Peace.

Just a day....

Today was rather uneventful. Did some much needed cleaning and went through a bunch of old magazines. It's nice to purge once and awhile, and I tore out a bunch of recipes I will hopefully try soon!

Flowers, Cameras and kid!

Pretty blooms today! Dahlias and a Tiger Lily! Last year I had about 10 Tiger Lilies blooming at once, this year only one, not sure what happened!
And this is the beginning of my camera collection. I have found most of these at yard sales, flea markets and one at the Salvation Army. The most i ever spent was $10...not bad! Oh the Minolta on the bottom was my last film camera, I really must pick up a roll of film sometime...maybe some B&W! The other one on the bottom is patented 1908, it's a Kodak Brownie Automatic. Middle shelf is my Polaroids. and the top shelf is a Polaroid land camera, next to that is a Kodak Vigilant junior six-20 and then a cheap little Continental, I just thought it was cute. And not making the shelf are my Canon 30D and 50D and my good ole Sony Cyber-Shot. So I'm a bit of a camera junkie!
And then there is the "Cute Shot of the Day"!! Everyone needs to do this...c'mon...just stick out your tongue and blow raspberries!!!

I've acquired a new plants. And the best thing is that I've only killed one of them!! This beauty I bought about 4 mths ago, it was only about 2-1/2 inches tall when i got it, I've already re potted it twice!! Going to share one of my other addictions in my next post. Off to Morgan's school for band orientation...she wants to play the flute!

I updated my blog list....these are ALL the ones I follow. Now I need to be a good blogger and comment too, lol.

Something from last week....replanted my Hens n Chicks in this old stove.

My New patio set....well not really a set...table from Lowe's, chairs from Kmart, and umbrella from Big Lots! Did a lot of driving around to get them all, but worth it...I have what I want. A place to hang out this summer, a place to have meals with my family, and a place for company to sit and have a cup of coffee with me....all Priceless!
