In other news...we had a WONDERFUL long weekend. I have zoo pictures and lake pictures to share (I just need Brad to bring his cord home from work so we can download the photos onto my computer). We also had a surprise visit from Brad's mom. We spent some time with friends - s'mores and fireworks on the 24th. Brad and I went to see the new Batman movie. We really did not like it. In fact, Brad REALLY did not like it at all. Have you seen it? what did you think? I just felt like there was too much violence, and it surely gave some wacko out there too many crazy ideas. Overall, it was just dark. There wasn't anything uplifting at all. Oh, and did I mention it was almost 3 hours long? crazy. And with that being said, some of the special effects were very cool. We also went to the demolition derby on Saturday night...it was so much fun...in spite of the wind and rain that surprised us all. Seriously, who knew watching cars (and trucks) crash into each other on purpose could be so entertaining? Apparently lots of people, because the place is ALWAYS packed! I haven't been for several years, but I think we'll be going again next year - I enjoyed it, Brad enjoyed it, and the kids loved it.
And just because a post without a project or photo is not as fun...here's a layout I created at the retreat a few weeks ago:
This is one of the layouts from Lori's class. Her original was 12x12, but I decided to make it into a 2 page 8 1/2 x 11 for my album. :0)
