Great friends

I am not sure if I still can put the weekend all in words. I just know it was great.
I remember at one point looking around at the 30 some people and saying out loud,It is amazing that a little sports brought this group together. Parents all there for the kids and the sport.

So Saturday morning we went to a wrestling tourney, Josh won his Gold medal and I love that Kate picked up the camera and got some great shots. I love this one where he is rolling his opponent.
Smores....just love them all goooy and warm :)

Oh and yes Grandpa and Grandma the Go cart came out! Grandpa bought this for Josh last summer, then came up and put it together in the fall, well we finally unleashed it this weekend. We had kids from 8 years old to 50 years old (Kate!) riding and each one just had this big smile on their faces. I didn't know if we would get Kate out from behind the wheel, she really loved riding. Josh really impressed me as he let his friends have turns on it all day, knowing he would have time to ride it other times. It was really allot of fun and on the 2 gallons of gas went all day. I don't have grass in some places, but it is all good. I look out at the couple bare spots and it really brings a smile to my face remembering all the laughter and smiles. So I guess you could insert here..."You might be a redneck if...." joke! Oh and yes we are getting helmets.

So that is the weekend in a nutshell, I felt so blessed to have such a great weekends surrounded by lots of great people, it was good to laugh and just relax.

Now if you have made it this far....I think you deserve a GREAT Giveaway! Soooooooooo.....I think we should celebrate this great weekend with some BOTTLE ROCKETS!! Wahoooooo!

This is the best picture I can get you at the moment. You will receive all 6 double sided papers and the Cardstock Stickers. ( excluded is the Coupon book and the tags) It is a great new line of paper just in at the Corner Store this week. I haven't even got the jpegs in the store yet. Working on that today!
To play along, just leave a comment here before tomorrow morning and you will be entered. The past couple winners have been having some great fun with their prizes and I hope to continue doing this as long as there are people that would like some giveaways!

Just want to give a shout out to the Birthday Girl Laurel!! Happy Happy!!
