I am using a digital kit on Shutterfly. This digital version is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly - Project Life Turquoise Edition HERE and my 2013 album using the Shutterfly - Project Life Childhood - Mayfield Edition HERE I will hopefully be posting my 2014 pages soon.
And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week) -
Thursday - More animal art project from school and a surprise photo. We had dinner at Outback and apparently Maddie took this photo with my phone during dinner. Not a bad angle!
Friday - A little afternoon outdoor play with the neighbors. Maddie loves playing with Henry, Norah and Jude. There tends to be a ton of riding vehicles between tricycles, bicycles, push carts, etc. They really do have fun with one another. We are blessed to have such wonderful neighbors!
Tuesday - Maddie's class continued their "buggy" week and got to check out live crickets! How cool. Juan and I left for our first solo getaway since before Maddie was born. We've NEVER left her overnight with anyone. We are headed to Hill Country in Wimberly, Texas. I found a groupon for a two night stay at a little bed and breakfast. It is only about 5 hours away, so we thought it was finally time to try. Maria and Alfonso are staying with Maddie as she has school. We had a great first day. We stopped at Blue Bonnet Cafe for lunch and had some of their famous pie. Then we stopped at William & Chris Winery. It is a fairly new winery and all of their wines were pretty young. Then we hit Sister Creek, my favorite white wine. We bought a case their and then headed to our B&B, Serenity Inn Farmhouse. Our little cottage was very quaint and there was a sign welcoming us. We ended the evening having dinner at The Leaning Pear. It was fabulous and we had the best crab cake that Juan said he had ever tasted. It was absolutely delicious and everything is bought or grown local and clean. I left my Ipad for Maddie and showed her how to answer facetime. I wrapped and hid presents for her all over the house to surprise her with when we called. Unfortunately, I didn't consider the lack of cell service or wi-fi in that area. We tried for hours to get a hold of them and finally texted both our neighbors asking them to check in on them. Maria did finally answer the home phone, as that was the only phone that could pick up our remote service. From that point on, Maria or Maddie made sure to always answer the home phone. It was a bit stressful, but still a great first day of our getaway.
