Comments

  1. We met friends for breakfast this morning, then I cleaned up my craft area (not really fun but necessary!). Tonight we are having a bbq for my birthday (which is Monday) with family.

  2. Middle school orientation, soccer coach training, back to school BBQ, car washing, housewarming party. Wow! I’m tried just thinking about it.
    Laura :)

  3. Since I am on bedrest, the only fun thing I have planned for today is watching a marathon of Alias, which my DH went to borrow from the library.

  4. I’m going to church and I’ll be teaching at the kids’ service- super fun!

  5. rebecca k says:

    We took the kids into the pool early this morning well before we hit the 100 degree mark–lots of fun and hopefully we tired them out enough that they will nap this afternoon!

  6. does folding laundry count for fun? :) planning to do a bit of scrapbooking,sewing and cooking too though so that will be fun. hope you have a great Saturday.

  7. I cooked a yummy breakfast of french toast stuffed with bananas and brownie cookies (no we did not eat both for breakfast!) My 2 year old is dressing up at the moment and dancing through the family room. This afternoon we are meeting up with my husband’s cousin who is in town from WA.
    I hope you are doing something fun too this weekend :)

  8. Kathy in Minnesota says:

    Just did it-DH and I were laying on the floor with the grr-animals, giving them lots and lots of love. I love it when we do that!

  9. quietangelsb says:

    I’m going to the beach and taking lots of pictures!

  10. Katherine says:

    I am going with my sister-in-law and her two girls to see G-Force at the movies. Can’t wait! Last night they all came over for our first dinner party (my and I have only been married 2 months). It was fun too. I guess Sunday will be a little less fun- church and chores. Not too bad.

  11. Not fun: One kid to baseball practice, one to football carwash, one to shop for new uniform shirts, cleaning house, mother-in-law coming
    Fun: New car being delivered (looooong awaited – yeah!), date with hubby and free babysitting (the fun part of MIL coming!)

  12. Jane Thorpe says:

    We’ve made a giant slip and slide out of a roll of plastic from Home Depot – covered it in dish soap and have it on our sledding hill with the hose on it!! I plan to race the kids on it again today in the hope that it will rid me of the aches and pains I got from going on the silly thing yesterday!!!! ;)

  13. annie bellamy says:

    I got up at 5am, woke the kids up and took them to see the 6am mass balloon ascent here in Bristol UK as part of the International Balloon Fiesta! It was a brilliant site and definitely a fun and surprising thing to do on a saturday morning!

  14. Celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary with an ice cream cake our 7 year old got for us. She found a coupon, got her money and told us to drive her to Baskin-Robbins. She had even written out what she wanted them to write on the top. So cute and so grown-up. Couldn’t think of anyone better to celebrate with than her, her dad and her little sister. Some years are just like that. : ) Plus who doesn’t love ice cream cake!

  15. We are preparing our house for the arrival of our new cat tomorrow… my son’s first pet and he is over the moon!

  16. We are hanging out at the pool and barbequing hot dogs for the kids with family and friends. :)

  17. I’m going to see Julie & Julia with my sister.

  18. I’m going to work! :) Yes, this is fun. I have a part time job at a kids clothing store that I really only work once every few months or so. It’s my ‘me time,’ 4 hours with adults after a busy week of staying home!

  19. Malia in Seattle says:

    Taking the kids on a bike ride at the park across the street from th house I grew up in, then to the Children’s Bookstore.

  21. I’m actually scrapbooking! And enjoying my first Saturday at home in over a month!

  22. We are going to Cheesecake Factory for lunch and then DH and I are going to work on a puzzle.

  23. Signed up for Me: The Abridged Version AND Yesterday and Today; talked with my mom on the phone, taking the kids out for breakfast, then my son to guitar lessons, and my daughter to the mall to pick out sunglasses. She has been wearing eye glasses for 10 yrs and just got contacts last night. She is so excited to wear real sunglasses :)

  24. I am working on acquiring donations for a charity crop that I am holding in February – the 3rd Annual care to crop in orlando, FL!

  25. Making renovation choices. It’s fun because I’ve been waiting years to do this! It’s also overwhelming and mind boggling.

  26. I was able to get a quick layout done this morning and filled my girls little pool so they could go swimming. They had a great time!

  27. I am enjoying my last free weekend before I go back to school. Made my husband his new towels for football this year, figuring out how to use my embroidery machine on a t-shirt and making uniform shirts for the football managers and then I hope to work on my scrapbooking. Want to do some powerlayouts or make kits so that I don’t have to take as much stuff next weekend with me.

  28. My husband and I over our stake’s pioneer trek – we were doing some reconnaissance to figure out the trail that we’ll use. Very fun!

  29. I am scrapping some of our summer fun and enjoying a quiet house while my dh is out with the boys :)

  30. well, I got a haircut this morning. That was fun!
    And tonight I’m going to a surprise bridal shower for a girl in my ward who used to babysit my kids!

  31. OH my. Recovering from our wild & crazy summer… taking my dh to the airport (NOT fun) and starting to get ready to take my ds to college! (NOT fun)
    FUN? Hm. If my pictures arrive I will scrap the night away! :-)

  32. My family and I are going to my sister’s for a birthday dinner for my dad. I think it will definitely be fun!

  33. Well, right now I’m doing a puzzle – I think that’s lots of fun (as long as the puzzle isn’t too hard). Then later we’re going to a city carnival with bounce houses and funnel cakes and music – pretty fun day!

  34. Beverly Boelter says:

    Making a couple fun and funky journals for my BBF’s twins for their 17th birthday, and a little bit of scrapbooking. What kind of FUN are you doing today? Ü

  35. I ran 9 miles this morning:) This afternoon, we’re hosting a party with my husband’s co-workers (high school football coaches) and their families, to celebrate the beginning of the season.

  38. I am going to a pig roast with my family! I have never been to one before. Hope you are having fun today!

  39. I just took my boys to a pool party for a friend’s birthday. While we were there I got to walk around and take some really FUN pictures of the neighborhood pool!
    I don’t know if any changes have been made to this pool since the 70s. The inside of the wooden fence is painted, and it’s starting to fade making the pictures so adorable. There is also a resident squirrel that runs around the pool area, and I took some really FUN pictures of him!!!!

  40. We are celebrating my father’s 65th birthday. :)

  41. Not sure how “fun” it is but I’ve just finished painting our family room! Why I waited til the hottest day in Chicago this summer is beyond me but at least I’m done now. Now the real FUN, redecorating the room once the paint dries!!!

  42. alison russell says:

    I ran the provo canyon trail half marathon today and it was actually very fun.

  46. Our little family of five just fulfilled our youngest’s birthday wish with a trip to Noodle Noggin N Bean (a parent-child playplace). He was beyond thrilled to have all of our undivided attention playing for two and a half hours! Fun, fun, fun!! Hope you’re doing something fun today. . .

  47. I’m cleaning!
    No – that’s not fun…
    OK—I’m cleaning because friends from our OLD town are coming to visit us here in our NEW town! We haven’t seen them in more than a year…so THAT will be fun!

  48. well, i’ll be spending most of the day cleaning cabins at our resort, and serving meals to our guests. not a lot of room for fun of my own on saturdays here! but we did have a guest who showed us her gorgeous quilting projects that she worked on while she stayed in one of our cabins for the week, so that was fun!! :)

  49. The best thing that will make this day fun is not having to work. My oldest daughter and I are having fun because she is helping me with dinner. Also the trip to the library will be fun. The not fun part will be the cleaning in-between all of the fun stuff. At least once the cleaning is done I can have fun crafting later in the weekend.

  50. I’m going to sushi making class with the hunkster hubby for a date! YES!!

  51. Just blogged some recent scrapbooking and Finally got photos up. Tonight its a BBQ with my son who’s back from HighAdventure and watching a movie or playing games – whichever he wants.

  56. Just got back from a fun play that was the culmination of a week-long drama camp for my eight year-old.

  57. Celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary. Think we’re doing a steak movie and a movie sans kids. We’ve only seen 2 movies without kids since sometime last year.

  58. It’s kind of sickening, but my fun today is getting a homework station in order before school starts! I’ve painted the new organizers and am about to go clear the counter, and redo it all!!! And yeah, I think it’s fun!!!! (and if I get it done today, I can scrap on Monday when they are at school!)

  59. WE are having a very fun day. Took my parents to the findley market/farmer’s market. Afternoon swimming with my 11 month old. We’re are ending the evening with people over to play fun party games with lots of good snacks.

  62. My 3 year old daughter is sick, so I ma tryig to find fun things to do so that she does not feel too bad that her big sister is swimming at the pool — we just made our own “build a bear” and we will be painting or play dough after nap…

  63. Waiting for my daughter to get home from Trek so we can spoil her with dinner and cookies :D

  64. I’m just enjoying a day with my kids … bliss after a week of working hard!

  65. Swimming!

  66. I am making my first ever scrapbook page about our new baby kitty, Chanel. We’ve just had her a week and I had completely forgotten how much young kitties play. My daughter is going to be beside me doing a page about our sweet 8 year old kitty (who is a little out of sorts with the new one!) Stacy, your comment the other day, about grabbing a couple of pictures and creating a page and then doing another page and so on has finally convinced me to stop being so afraid and just start . . . somewhere. Just start. So that is my fun for the day.

  67. KristiGilbert says:

    My husband and I are playing with our 2.5 year old daughter for fun…like we always do! But then tonight my parents are sitting so we can have a date night, which is much appreciated. Adult conversation without interruption!! WOOHOO!!

  88. Scrapycandy says:

    Fun today? Filling out school forms, answering email, cleaning, cooking, shopping for B-day gifts, and laundry. But hey, I might get inspired and make cookies, make a B-day card, and pick out “the” picture for my HS Senior from his portfolio of Senior pictures. Sound familiar? LOL!

  89. I took my 4 year old triplets and my one year to their first yard sales. They had a lot of fun finding treasures. I spent $12 on fun stuff for them and got a dozen ears of sweet corn and a couple of “old” kiddie books to scrap with. Then they jumped in our pool. It’s been a good fun Saturday.

  129. Relaxing on the couch with my honey… getting ready for pizza and movie night. :)

  130. Where I am it is too hot to be outside so in between loads of laundry and stuff around the house I am getting in some play time with my boys – watching old movies of the family – and making cupcakes and the day isn’t over yet so I’m sure more fun things are in store for us all :-)

  131. I painted my small downstairs powder room for fun. I ended up with a bit of a Cruella de Ville hairdo after leaning down to get the bottom of a wall and that was funny!

    I have successfully canned forty three quarts of tomatoes! I love the summer time, and being able to preserve that summer smell in a jar–priceless!

  134. Took my oldest son to get a few clothes for kindergarten. Kindergarten???…Where did the time go? Then we grabbed lunch at On the Border, his favorite place to eat due to the endless chips and salsa and the white cheese dip. It was a fun day because it is rare that I get a lot of one on one time with just him. Got a self portrait of he and I to commerate the day. FUN!

  135. I took my mother-in-law out for a late breakfast and spent the rest of the day playing with paper & ink in my studio … doesn’t get much better than that.

  149. We went to the zoo!

  150. I am participating in my first marathon. It is just a 2 mile fun run but I am going to do it. Been training for a 5k and this is a perfect step in the right direction.
    Yay me!

  151. It wasn’t really ‘fun’ but we celebrated the life of my best friend’s dad. We’ve been friends since high school and lived together at university. Her dad was the first person I knew that was passionate about photography and he passed that on to us.

  152. we just got home from our local Street of Dreams! Lots of FUN seeing what’s new. Tonight? BBQ hamburgers and just hanging around.

  153. Liane Donovan says:

I am finding in my 365 Scrapbook I have pictures of my kids, pets and flowers…. things I love the most…. Heheheheheheh My DH and I seem to take 2nd to all of those things. =)

  154. 3 things: 1. hung out with my kiddos – always guarenteed smiles there 2. saw my best friend – she lives 8 hours away 3. ran 11 miles with a pal. What a great way to start my day, watching the sun rise as I am plodding along. Beautiful!

  155. We win parents of the year award for taking our kids to a totally inappropriate and stupid movie-Year One-this afternoon, but we came home and played Apples to Apples together as a family!

  159. I spent the day setting up my classroom for a new crop of first graders. It is always fun and exciting to start a new school year (and a little bit exhausting too!)

  160. Watching my 20 year old daughter and my 15 year old son chase each other around the house, laughing and having fun. That’s fun for me.

  161. I made a layout and several cards and took a dip in the pool.

  164. Just returned from a Hot Rod show with the family and a camera card full of cool hood ornaments of cars from 1918 to 1960′s. Something I decided today that I would love a collection of. I hear a mini album calling my name or a cool layout to frame for hubby’s garage.

  165. Hanging out with my college roommate. That would be from college 23 years ago.

  166. I am sorting through photos from the last five years trying to find my son and his friend from school because she is moving to a new school—-oh, it was supposed to be fun!!! If I had my LOM done it would be QUICK and fun. laughing and grinning, really I am….
    At least they are digital not stacks and stacks!

  167. tchrtiff says:

    Today I worked on tagging photos in iPhoto (fun for me) and went on a family bike ride (they’re so much more fun now that daughter can ride w/o training wheels). Hope you’re having a fun weekend!

  168. justdelms says:

    Why, checking out your blog of course!! lol I went to the scrapbook expo and checked out all kinds of good things, then hit two scrapbook stores on my way home. Am I tired!!

  169. Today I tested for my red belt for TaeKwonDo and passed. I got to watch two of my kids who are high ranking black belts at 10 and 12 years old help judge at testing. Awesome day – many memories to scrapbook.

  170. Alis in Wnderlnd says:

    I took my 4 year old daughter ice skating for the first time. She love it!

  171. Took the kids to Grandfather Mountain, NC. Crossed the mile high swinging bridge and went through the nature preserve. LOVED the bears. Squeezing in a last minute one day – vacay before school starts back. Got lots of pics to scrap!!

  172. sitting on the couch with my honey watching a movie and reading scrapping blogs!

  173. We were going to go to a balloon festival this morning…but the weather had other plans. My kids went to a primary church activity, and I went shopping. Lots of fun!

  174. I made “bundles of love” to send to Iraq per this request, http://ibol.wordpress.com/ for sewing materials from a Marine. We went through old quilting material from my grandma and laughed, laughed and reminisced. LOTs of fun and photos as I plan on scrapping it.

  175. Debbie Dow says:

    Today i went to a baby shower, saw so many newborns including twin boys! that were about 5lbs each,took a trivia quiz that the most anyone got right out of 19 questions was ten, i got a mere 7 correct.
    Then off to watch some cool ju jitsu at a exibition that my son participated in!

  176. My nephew came over for a couple hours. We did every fun thing we could think of! He likes to ride his bike while I walk. That way, on an especially hot day, he can wait for me to catch up…in the shady spots!

  177. I’m editing photos from our cross-country roadtrip this summer. It was the trip of a lifetime, and I’m reliving it through photos. It really is FUN!

  178. We went to Total Beverage for wine tasting this afternoon and are hanging out watching movies since it’s so hot.

  179. We went to the Tball game of our 5 year old! Super cute to see a bunch of 4, 5 & 6 year old kids playing ball!

  180. Penelope Stoddard says:

    FUN you ask? Listening to my three boys play together is fun! And making a super yummy dinner is also fun!

  181. Just came back from a BBQ at a friend’s house … next on the schedule – vegging out in front of the TV with the hubby.

  182. enggirl lorraine says:

    I took a nap with my son. We both enjoyed it immensely!

  183. My husband and I are watching the kids set up card games for us, better log off so I can play and have FUN!

  184. Fun today included swimming with the kids at Nana’s and Papa’s pool…AND learning to upload my photos to flickr for a challenge on Write.Click.Scrapbook. It’s a “recipe” mini-album I did about our summertime. We started school here in East TN this past Monday, so I guess summer is officially over for us, but we’re still having lots of fun. How about you?

  185. Fun is dangling my feet in our pool after a long day at work and watching my son pretend to be a shark.

  186. Today the kids and I drove home from a FUN roadtrip to see our friends, and old neighbors, in Rhode Island. Daddy was super duper busy at work and our friends’ daddy was out of town, so it was Mommy and kid party week in RI. On the way home we stopped at the outlets to get a bit of back to school shopping done. F.U.N!

  187. Finishing up some CKC class projects and procastinating doing the laundry. Now which sounds like more fun to you?!

  188. I taught my grandson to walk up our legs to do a somersault – and then I listened to him LAUGH his biggest laugh! And I laughed with him. So much fun.

  189. becky Jones says:

    I am organizing my house (we just moved in last weekend) and refinishing some nightstands (an awesome Craiglist find)for our room. I am so fun aren’t I?!? LOL!

  190. cleaning my hubby’s upholstry shop…he’s retired but still sometimes does something…but it appears cleaning is not something he stilll does…

  191. Bananagrams…the game! It’s like Scrabble but you can play with kids and adults alike. And, you don’t have to wait and wait for them to do their turn. We all love it. I am adding it to their summer bingo list for this week as “Play Bananagrams with someone!”

  192. I made and canned homemade cherry syrup with my stepdaughter. We sat around and played a board game while we waited for the sound of the lids popping–each time we heard a pop! We got a piece of candy. It was a day with lots of hard work and lots of rewarding salt water taffy.

  193. Ashley J says:

    i just spent an entire day at a family reunion where we had the “Amazing Race.” A lot of really great, fun challenges. We had those over 40 chugging root beer, bow and arrow shooting, pulling a lot of weight around and lots of other fun challenges.

  194. Cynthia B. says:

    Today was a travel day…coming back home from a FABulous family reunion! So it was a little sad, but my family of 4 passed the day together, playing Battleship in the car on the way to the airport, playing Uno on the plane, and we’re just now watching the show Wipeout on our DVR – our family favorite!

  195. We celebrated our daughter’s 7th birthday by meeting her Uncle Bryon and his family at a cottage right on Lake Michigan. (Uncle Bryon flew in from Colorado). We had birthday cake shaped like an ice cream cone, with amazing buttercream frosting and M&Ms decorating the “ice cream”, and we frolicked in Lake Michigan and on the beach. Family FUN times.

  196. Jenny McGee says:

    Well my fun for the day was my son’s 8th birthday party. WE had relative’s over and he had fun and opened presents and ate tacos and had an overall exciting day. Thanks for a chance to win.

  197. We had a pajama day here, just relaxing with lots of books, videos and of course, snacks! XX’s

  198. My hubby & I purchased kitchen cabinets to finish a basement kitchen we’ve been wanting to finish for 20 years! AND my 13 year old and I purchased two electric guitars! We are learning to play together! :0) That is FUN!

  199. I made my nephew, who just joined the Coast Guard and is temporarily stationed near enough to us for me to pick him up on the weekends, a traditional meal for dinner. He LOVED it. It was fun making the meal. Everyone got involved and pitched in. And it turned out very tasty.

  200. WE had some guests for lunch it was fun and the babies could be together playing

  201. Christine Cleary says:

    I just went out for brunch with my parents as they are about to go on a 4 week holiday overseas, now we are going to take the dog out so he can stretch his legs.

  202. Well…I signed up for Ali’s class which will be a ton of fun in the future! Also, hung out school shopping with my almost fifth grader. He was happy, silly and did not have the middle school mood swing going on…so that was very big FUN.

  203. Reading all my favorite scrapbooking blogs and watching “chick flicks” with my 3 girls while my husband and son are away on a fishing trip!

  204. Sherrie M. says:

    Made smores for the first time over an open fire…yum!

  205. Ginny from AZ says:

    I went with my two daughters for a pedicure and then did some shopping for my almost two year old granddaughter’s birthday(8/15). We were walking a lot in hopes of starting my one daughter into labor as she is almost due with a boy, our third grandson. We always have fun together!

  206. Having fun at our block party. Kids love running around in the street. Fun to visit with all the neighbors. Building memories and relationships. Doesn’t get much better than this! Hope you are having fun too! Blessings!

  207. Today, my 3 year old son, 6 year old daughter and I went ‘school clothes and supply’ shopping. We had a great time trying on clothes and finding the perfect backpack, folder, lunch box etc. :) then we came home and went through their rooms and got rid of the stuff that didn’t fit anymore. Of course my son got some new shoes so he didn’t feel left out. He’s been running around the house all day saying how “cool” his new shoes are and how much faster they make him run. LOL I love it!

  208. Napping :) I’ve got a 10 week old and a just turned 3 year old who have taken a chunk out of my beauty rest lately.

  209. I realize the day is almost over, but for today my boys and I (lucky husband got to be at work…) helped host a garage sale at my sisters, so the 8 cousins got to play together, took care of two people’s three dogs, found fabric for a new quilt top and fabric for the back of an almost finished quilt top, my boys helped my husband change the mower oil and then went to my parents to mow lawns and pick up pine cones. I think I am about ready for bed :)

  210. I reconnected with an old friend. Went school shopping and hosted a pool party for my son’s 5th grade football team.

  211. Remembering the wonderful dinner my hubby and daughter made for me tonight–Steak Diane, potatoes au gratin, and grilled asparagus…Yum! In other fun news, I spent the day cropping with my Mom and pals at our LSS!

  212. we went to a little neighborhood festival called “Old Fashioned Days” to eat “fair” food. So there we all were eating between us a sausage sandwich, a gyro, a corn dog and a piece of pizza, under a big tree because it was raining. Then we walked around, got a piece of grilled corn from the boy scouts, looked at some old cars, all the while it was still raining. Thought it was a great lesson for the kids, things don’t always have to be “perfect” to be fun!

  213. Went paintballing for my sisters birthday and took my kids to the public where we had the pool to ourselves and had a great fun time!!!

  214. Michele Rosner says:

    Giggled with my daughter. Oh, that carefree joy of a three-year-old is so contagious.

  215. We had our 3 year olds party, with a rocket cake, balloons, games, too much food and pressies. It was a FANTASTIC fun time.

  223. I’m watching a movie with my 15 year old son and so happy that he still wants to spend time with me.

  224. I rode a bicycle around Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC with my husband and 10 year old son. It was the best day I’ve had in a long time (not to mention SO much easier than when I ran the same 10K loop yesterday by myself!). We had so much FUN!

  225. I went and had breakfast with one of my great friends from college. We had a great time!

  230. I am redecorating my daughter’s room while she is away. Changing it from a little girls room to a teenager’s room. She will be really surprised. I will still have to do some more painting of the furniture and wall decorations…but it is coming together nicely.

  242. Took my little sister to Sea World and we got to feed the dolphins… it was magical!

  243. I spent the day creating a two “shadow boxes” on foam core with thin strips of wood. Each has 6 sections. In the sections are pictures and embellishments representing 12 of the things our Women’s Ministries group at church does each year. I think it turned out pretty good and it was lots of fun. You can see it at http://deb-anintentionallife.blogspot.com.

  244. Not alot of fun today for me…. finishing up building a new bedroom for my son. Fun will start tomorrow when we start to paint!
    Jenn in Vancouver

  245. Hi Stacey. Well for fun today I baked and decorated gingerbread men with my 7yo son. I normally really dislike cooking with children as I just want to get it done and get out, but today was different. We took our time and chatted ( 2 teenagers were absent )and enjoyed each others company. The icing on the cake for me (no pun intended) was when he told everyone at the dinnertable that the best part of his day was, not baking, but talking with Mummy. Perhaps this is a huge wake up call to me to wake up and take time with spending time. Have a great day

  246. My girls and I drove to a nearby town to see Aladin at a dinner theatre. So fun! The best time was the bonding going on between the girls and I. Just love these kind of days.

  247. Our family fun today was demolishing our kitchen! We let the boys take a hammer to the wall we are ripping out and they helped tear out the old dry wall. I wasn’t looking forward to this, but making it a family project and keeping everyone involved was FUN!

  256. Francisca, in the Netherlands says:

    I didn’t check your blog yesterday because I was too busy having FUN camping with my family! We went to Silver Falls State Park (in Oregon) and yesterday for FUN we hiked almost 6 miles along the Trail of Ten Falls–and saw 8 waterfalls!

  310. Tobi-Lynn says:

    well – I’m a day late reading the blog, so for FUN yesterday —- we had a GIRL day while my husband son were out doing MANLY stuff. Their weekend was a spiritual ceremonial type of one wherein my son and other teen boys were busy marking the passage to manhood as they were KNIGHTED as they are entering high school this year.
    Anyway, the GIRL fun included mani’s and pedi’s, shopping at a fabric store for supplies to make cute memo board since PB Teen is too pricey and not a perfect match like picking our own fabric is, visiting with some cousins, eating Pei Wei and going to see Julie and Julia. What a blast my girl and I have had!

  311. I’m going to go for a drive with my husband- our kiddos are with the grandparents!

  312. Today was a fabulous worship, it was Music Sunday at our church today and it was so much FUN!

  313. Heather Jarrett says:

    going to a church cookout

  314. After church we grabbed bagels and drinks at Panera, and walked over to our town’s annual art festival- “Art in Your Eye”- in Batavia, IL. HOT today, but such fun! Our family (dh and 4 kids and I) enjoyed making a metal leaf for the “Communitree” art sculpture, painting with acrylics and rubbing alcohol, making masks and butterflies….fun to play with mixed media, and then browse the gallery tents!

  315. Already worked at church, attended, went to lunch and now I am going to take a nap. For FUN, I may do some scrapbooking.

  316. I just purchased some colorful bins the other day and I plan to sort all my scrapbooking goodies into them. I love sorting scrapbooking supplies! I will admit that sounds a bit strange, but I do! Then I plan to scrapbook some new pages I’ve been excited to try from one of my BPS classes.

  317. I bought some clear boxes to spice up with bright colored papers for my desk in my classroom and some card/scrapbook books to read – one 50% off and one 75% off!

  318. We spent some money at a flea market! My favorite item was a chair with a pull down step that looks just like one my Grandma and Grandpa had in their kitchen. Love it!

  319. We are heading out to a local outdoor music festival called Muskfest. It’s the last day of the ten day festival which spreads out across downtown Bethlehem, Pa and has over a hundred bands from around the globe!

  320. Went to church this morning where the worship was fabulous. Then back home for burgers on the grill, veggies on the grill and fresh corn on the cob! Played bananagrams (we’re totally addicted to this game) while we waited for the food to cook. Now I’m scrapping some older pics of my grown kids – such fun!

  321. While the kids are out with their grandparents, I am taking a big bubble bath, enjoying the rare quiet, and reading a wonderful book. Heaven! Kathy

    the situation we are in isn’t fun… but we are certainly making out to be. We are at the hospital walking my my to her eternal home. In the midst of this we are telling stories and looking through boxes of old pictures. There has been laughter all day.

  338. A ‘high tea’ party, for 25 at home, to celebrate our daughters’ 21st birthday. She’s all grown up now but still my little girl.

  339. I am reading the Adventures of Winnie the Pooh to my four year old daughter and baking cookies. Fun!

  340. I probably wouldn’t call it fun if I heard someone else say it BUT I am crossing off a bunch of those pesky little things that never seem to get done around here: I slept in, picked the dead heads off the flowers, brushed the dogs, put away my gardening stuff, made chocolate chip cookies and watched some movies. A great day!

  341. Not so fun during…but I’m attacking my bedroom, took apart the entire bed and washed everything, even lifted the boxsprings (with help…) and vacuumed under there and moved the dresser and nightstands. Yeah…not so fun, but I’m looking forward to the feeling when it’s all done :)

  342. cleaning off the waxy buildup on my laminate floors that were not supposed to be waxed!!!!

  343. packing for our beach vacation!

  351. Well I believe the fun started when I arrived at your blog and watched the lego earthquake – love that cheeseball mountain and fish out of water! Later I might make a cake with chocolate topping and M&Ms – I love days at home with my dd! Love your blog!

  369. Thanks for asking? Today, I am just returning from a FUN family vacation to the Midwest. It involved baseball, football training camps, science museums, water parks and more. Much fun was had by all. Only bummer is that we returned home to the realization that we left the fridge not quite closed. YUCH!. But hey, we have a totally clean fridge now.
    Hope the rest of your summer is loads of fun, too!

    having lunch w/ my DD’s best friend from high school. Now that they are busy college girls, we only get to see her a couple times a year.

  421. Took my kids to a park for a playdate today, our first of many I’m sure. Went to Michaels for a mini album I want to make from a gift card tin that says Happy birthday. I want to use it for my son’s past birthday. That’s my fun!

  422. Since it is a rainy, cool day, we made chocolate chip cookies. They are the best fresh out of the oven with a glass of cold milk.

  423. Well I am still hoping to have some fun today (school shopping has to be done). I would love to get to the bookstore as there is a number of new books I want to get. But first there was laundry, dishes and lunches to make and then off to work which includes the volunteer stuff which at moment means I have to help create question to find replacement principal for my daughters’ school. First day of school is August 31st. Yikes. I need a new book to destress with.

  424. Celebrating my son’s b-day. He turned 15. When did I get old enough to be a mom to a 15 year old? Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was changing his diaper?

  425. I actually got to go out by myself today, and had a little time on my own with no one talking to me, other than the sweet waitress offering me more diet Coke! :-) Such a treat–we have six children and my guy travels a lot for work, so this was much-needed.
    …and then I came home to three sick children, with fevers and vomiting…sigh…glad I got some time out!
