Project Life: June 10 - 16

With the start of summer, my time to work on Project Life pages seemed to disappear. I guess we were too busy traveling and keeping the kids busy and home that I just didn't have time to get to creating the PL pages. Luckily I was busy taking lots of pictures and collecting little bits of things along the way. A large pile of goods has been stacking up and now it's time to tackle those Project Life pages.

On our first full week home on summer break, our three kids did a week long summer choir camp where they performed a play with lots of singing and choreography. We spent that weekend with friends at the AZ Grand Resort which is only 15 minutes from our house. They offer great summer rates that include the hotel, waterpark, breakfast and spa credits. How could we resist?

I also spent some time on a web chat with my four siblings planning the 40th Anniversary Party for my parents that we had at the end of June. The top photo show my computer screen with all of our little screens on the chat. Love that technology can connect people in three different states for a real time video chat. So cool.

While we were staying at the AZ Grand, we went to Rustler's Rooste for dinner. It's a fun western style (tourist trap) type restaurant on the hotel property. We had a guy do some really cool magic tricks for us while we waited for our dinner. We were happy to tip him because he really did a great show and it was the highlight of dinner.

Although creating these pages can be a bit tedious when I'm weeks behind and have a big pile of things to fit in the album, it's always so fun to look at the completed pages and have a record of what we did each week. I'm committed to finished this project through the end of the year, but I'm going to have to assess at the end of the year and see if I'm up to doing it again.
