A Smashing Good Time

I spent the night at my Mom's house a few weeks ago. I went there to drop Jack off to her, since she likes to keep him some in the summertime and I knew I would be dropping him off later and would probably have to spend the night, so I took my smashbook kit that my friend Cass made me and got to work, since I had free time. This is the second half to my All about me 2 page layout, the first page is a few posts back.
                                                  Just threw this one together quick.
This a layout with my friends, the Schlemmer's on it, we visited them recently in St. Louis
Acute,simple page with Jack and his Aunt Cathy. I used some paint chip samples from Wal-mart to decorate with.
A page with Jack and his cousins, used a few more paint chip samples, they are not just solid colors, they have patterns, I used the butterfly one on this page.
Our trip to St. Louis, it was just Jack and I and we did a lot of stuff.  The tickets on the top of the page was when I took him by myself a few years ago, that is all I have from that trip.
He loved riding up the Arch, The Magic House, the baseball stadium, and of course visiting with the Schlemmer's.
I hope to find time to smash my latest trip soon. I have lots of stuff from the trip to Smash.

Family vacation

At my job, I have to take my vacation when the Dr's are on their's and usually the summer week off , either falls on my birthday or Jason's birthday.  It falls on my birthday this year and let's just say I could get used to a 2 week long birthday celebration. LOL I took a 2 day trip with Jack and my Mom, came back rested for one day then took a family vacation to French Lick, Indiana (which is only 2 and a half hours away, I love short trips). We have had a blast at the waterpark, playing neon-glow in the dark golf, laser tag, outdoor put put golf, getting a little sun (it has mostly rained, that's the beauty of the indoor water park), a walking, historical tour of the beautiful West Baden resort, a wine tasting, quality time with my family and today a massage.  I still have the monthly Bunco party to look forward to (with a delicious gluten free cake made by a good friend Kim), my actual birthday party, watching World War Z, watching Monsters U and The Fallout Boy concert. Whew! I am tired just reading all this, but I am not a lazy person by any means.  I can't wait to find the time to Smashbook the trips, just have to find time to craft now (hmm, maybe the week in July my Mom will have Jack).

                                         Jack loves bridges and wants a picture of every single bridge, no matter if it is large or small.  We took back roads to French Lick, so I have no idea where we saw this bridge, but here it is.

 Big Splash Adventure water park in Indiana, this kid will play all day long, then he falls asleep in mid sentence. LOL
                                                 Neon, glow in the dark put put.
                                  We don't know the name of this, but we call it the lily pads
                                                               Look Mom, no hands
                                           The beautiful West Baden dome in Indiana

                                                                     Just a little history

 After watching Sweeney Todd, I don't think I will ever look at a Barber chair the same, ever again
                                        My fellas just chillin on the beautiful wrap around porch.  Jason may not like that many things, but he is a sucker for history, I new he would love this place.
                              Jack said this reminded him of the candy shop in Willy Wonka

  Guess who won, guess who won, hint (his cousins said he used to cheat at this game, when he was younger)

                                             Our one day of sunshine, Yes Please.
                                                         I found Pandora dance tunes.
 Our wine tasting, Jack took this picture from the table waiting on the food, which was delicious, of course I think anything would be after sampling 23 wines. LOL

Summer trip with Nana, continued

After the Louisville Zoo we went to The Slugger Museum in Louisville. Jack has played baseball for 2 years and loves it, he was soooo excited to go to this museum.

                                           Jack is holding Derek Jeter's actual bat, he was so happy.

                                                   Finding the sweet spot of the bat
                                                      creepy Derek Jeter wax figure
                                                     posing with Nana and the giant glove
                               batting cages, he loved this, and was about in tears when he had to leave

                            a replica of the museum. We sure did have a blast on our mini 2 day trip

Summer trip with Nana

We went on a little 2 day trip with Nana my Mom since I had off and Jason had to work. We went to Holiday World which was so much fun. I don't have any pictures of any of the rides cause we put our phones in the locker all day.

 Jack is super excited to go in, I think Nana is already tired and the day has just begun.
 This is towards the end of the day and they are tired. Nana is just tired, Jack was being wrotten and moody, but to be fair he played non-stop for 12 hours with no nap.  Which I did too, but I had a little thing called caffeine.
                                                             The one ride I got a picture of.
                                                                     Up he goes.
Then we went to the hotel and crashed, the next day we drove to the Louisville Zoo.
The Louisville Zoo was so much fun, they even had a mini water/splash area for kids and penguins (Jack's favorite)
                                                         posing with Mama
                                                          So creepy
                                                        water park within the zoo, What!!!

                                  These bears were play fighting for the longest time, it was so cute.
                                                       WOW, just WOW
