The Truth...

So we are running a secret Tattoo shop here. Emma is the Tattoo Artist. Now you know.

Where the "monies" go.

The cost of the tattoo is $5 and 1 cent. Fortunately for me, we haven't studied the value of coins yet. I got 4 tattoos and all I paid was 26 cents~! Curt is a sucker and gave her $5.

Emma's tattoo.

My tattoo... it is an alligator that says "sneaky."

Abi's cake tattoo.

These are for the boys. Although Dad was allowed to get a Penguin. Which he claims is the Linux penguin (computer geek).

Her sign

The shop is Opin (I love phonetic spelling).

Why is this hard for me?

I haven't posted as much as I would like, mainly because it has always been very hard for me to talk about myself. That is why you will mostly see photos here... because I am visual, and because then I don't have to say so much. Everytime I get ready to post, or think of something to post, I don't, because I am afraid that people don't want to hear about me or my life. But that is what a blog is about after all and I need to remember why I am here... lovely things... So I shall keep trying. If you don't like it, don't read it ;) (Or, if you are like me, just look at the pictures.)
That said, here are some lovely things I have been saving up and feeling too shy to share.

Balloon Festival in a local town.

Home made strawberry jam. YUMMMMMM!

What my hubby wanted for Father's Day. They floated around like this for over an hour.

The first zinnia bud of the year. I LOVE zinnias.

The Lilies in my "secret garden." ( I will post more secret garden pictures another day. Still working on that area.)

Fresh Strawberries

We went to the local U-Pick strawberry farm yesterday with the girls. So much fun. We filled 2 buckets of wonderful, fresh, oh so juicy and sweet strawberries. The girls were so expressive and excited about the whole thing and did not lose patience at all. Just a good, happy experience all around and sometimes you NEED that more than anything else. Yesterday was one of those days.

Abi- the "after" shot... sorry, there isn't a before
