This week was our last full week of summer vacation before Mickey starts first grade. I really wanted to make the most of it because I worked two thirds of the summer.
So, Tuesday morning, I packed up the kids and told them, "We're going on an adventure!!!!"
And, off we headed for the coast!
We actually shopped the Lincoln City Outlet Malls first for school clothes and then hit the beach at the D River Park. We played down there for a couple of hours in the sand. We built a pool and piled up rocks in the middle of the river to try to create our own island.
After that we shopped a little more (hello Goodwill & a scrapbook store) and then had dinner at Gallucci's Pizza.
On the way home we stopped at Craft Warehouse in Salem and got Mickey his own Project Life set up! He's really excited to start scrapping like mom. I'm hoping that this can be our little Monday thing that we do together and then I'll get mine done, too! LOL!
I got him the Childhood Mini Kit-Wellington Edition and a small pack of Photo Pocket Pages in Design A. He's already started saving things for his album and is much more ready to get his picture taken when I mention that we can put it in his album.
Example A: Us in his new first grade classroom at school on Thursday night. (He was trying to sneak in some funny faces!)
I tried but couldn't get him to agree to a pic with his new teacher. He's still my shy guy!
