Back From GA without My Kids.....

Well, I am back. Actually got back on Monday. The kids opted to stay in Georgia with my sister-in-law (Lucky for me). We had tons of fun. Went to the Georgia Aquarium and spent time with friends and family. Love the calm atmosphere of the area but not in love with the traffic in and out of Atlanta. Great place to visit (for me anyway) and since we now have friend up there and most of Ezzy's family is moving there we will be visiting a lot. Here are some pics from or trip.

My weekend....

Well, Friday evening we made a visit to the beach. The kids swam for about an hour or should I say Nayshawn swam and Niah and I watched for about an hour. Then we took a walk, listened to the live band that was playing while the kids ate snow cones.
On Saturday we went to watch Transformers. Loved it. It brought me back. Today was a very calm bug out day. Just enjoying the family.
Oh made a Tutu for Niah today using some instructions I found on Two Peas.
Got my Kit from Red Velvet Kit Club. Yummy. I have already started playing with it. They had a challenge on their blog to do a 6X12 LO. I tried it and actually liked it. I am working on another one now.

Almost Passed Out.....

Since my kids came back from Jamaica on Sunday they have been staying with my mother-in-law's while I am at work. Today I got there just to see Nayshawn run up to me and show me that he knocked out his two front teeth (top). I almost passed out. He was doing a flip and his knee came up and knock his mouth and the two teeth fell out. The sad thing is that Ezzy knew and he didn't tell me. So needless to say I was hysterical. It is one thing to have them fall out but it is another thing to knock them out. I might have Ezzy make him a flipper so he doesn't have to walk around with that gap. Although I don't think it matters to him. I took him to the park because I felt bad about getting all worked up about it. I also wanted to try out my new lens (50mm 1.8). I think I am in love.
Here are more pics of the kids rooms. Good night.

Wow Time Flies...

Well, lets see. What have I been doing? I have been trying to redecorate Nayshawn and Niah's room for them. Kind of a surprise and welcome home gift. I have primed and painted Nay's room and Ezzy has started the Camouflage It will be done by tonight. I will post pics when it is finished. I still have to go to the army surplus store to get some storage for toys. I will paint the stripes on Niah's walls tonight and then it is just putting up the beds together and rearranging some furniture. They will be back on Sunday and I am so ready to see them. My Mom is in Jamaica now so they are staying with her until she brings them back on Sunday. Then it is off the Georgia for the rest of the summer. We will leave on the 18th and Ezzy and I will come back on the 23rd. The kids will be staying with Ezzy's sister and his mom. While we are there we will visit the Georgia Aquarium and Six Flags. The rest of the time will be spent with family and friends.
One more thing. I had the pleasure of photographing my dear friend Tasha and her son who is Nayshawn's partner in crime. I had so much fun. I am really happy with how the pics came out. I am already looking for some one else to snap some shots of. Here are a couple of the pics I really like from that shoot.
