Went to the big firework festival over the weekend. Biked down to the riverside craziness, like every year. Traffic was packed, as usual. DD rode her own bike for the first time down there and was super tired by the time we got home around 11:30pm. It was a nice fireworks display and the kids loved it. I got a couple of decent photos but not many. Would have been better if I had taken the tripod but I couldn't figure out where to stash it on my bike. :)
We also went to Old Town University's "Red, White & Blue Gala". It was great to watch the fireworks display while sitting in a comfy, air-conditioned space with delicious food. We are at the perfect spot to see the whole fireworks. The kids loved it. I really like the air-conditioned part and the great view. Too fun.
DS is now riding his bike training wheel free. Yep, no training wheels for the boy now. My baby isn't such a baby anymore. His sister had her wheels off at 4-years old and he is a little earlier since he's been trying to keep up with her for the past year. He petals those little legs super fast and keeps up with all of us around the block. By the end of the summer he'll be ready to try out the hand-me-down Spiderman bike from our friends. We were going on longer and longer jaunts but now we're back to around the block for a bit until he builds up his stamina. Glad he is having such fun with the bike and going for rides. Plus he is just too cute.
I've created a couple of cute mini albums for upcoming classes at Old Town University. Love mini albums and I've now got the bug to create more. The Americana Mini turned out really cute but I'd like to make a more vintage version too. The Water Fun Mini also turned out really cute. Love the cover - it's a beach ball with the middle cut out to create a frame. Used the Silhouette to cut out the pieces and the water-drop shaped pages. Fun stuff. I've been scribbling furiously in my notebook with ideas for mini albums I'd like to create. Now I just need to make some time to fit in all the stuff I need, want and would like to do.
