Evening at the park plus some

The last 2 nights we've spent about an hour at the park/playground. Last night we took C's bike and SK's scooter, and tried to walk around the track. We MAYBE made one lap around it thanks to the creek being a huge diversion. But the lighting was good, so I decided to try to snap some pics of the girls. They weren't for it as much as I was. (PS--these are straight-out-of-the-camera. I plan on cropping and editing when I get a chance.)




Tonight we went again, and lucky us, there was a bluegrass band playing out on the wrap-around porch of the antebellum house that sits in the middle of the property. It was so nice to sit on a park bench, tap my feet to the music, and watch the girls play on the playground. Doesn't get much better than that! :D

In other fun stuff, I've been playing with some Girls Paperie papers and this is one of my favorites so far. I used a sketch from Studio Calico by Maggie Holmes (another one of my scrap crushes) and I'm really happy with the way it turned out!




I love that these papers are vintage-y, and can be used for boys OR girls. Of course I had to order more so that I could make a banner to go over Mac's crib. Which, by the way, I'm officially 30 wks. today! Yay! So just 8-9 wks. left. I'm totally not ready yet! eeek!

Okay, well enjoy what's left of your weekend!
