Welcome to summer!

Yesterday was my little guy's last day of school and when he got home this is what he found waiting for him. The last two weeks seem like they have been longer than the whole school year. He has been counting down the days and waiting for this day to arrive (and he was only in preschool). Is this how it is always gonna be? I am new at this whole school/summer vacation thing LOL! I saw this posted on the Tip Junkie blog and thought "What a neat idea!" He enjoyed it! And I enjoyed the look on his face when he saw it.

Now what to do for the entire summer? (Biting nails nervously. Yikes!) Any ideas, tips or activities would be greatly appreciated. Please send them my way via the comments box. Did I say GREATLY appreciated?! Thank you!

Sand Dollars on the Beach - Photo

By the bucket load! We collected these sand dollars on the beach. There were a ton of them and many were perfectly whole with no cracks or breaks.

The Wiggles Cupcakes! - Photo

We have a Wiggles fan on our hands and you would not believe how hard it is to find Wiggles party supplies here in the USA. (All sold out!) For our little Wiggle fan I made these cupcakes and added Wiggles picks that I made out of stickers.

We are planing a birthday party for our son and the theme is surf. I have created what I think is the cutest invitation to go along with this theme. I found this cute digital scrap booking beach kit called Lil' Red. You can purchase this kit by clicking over to Just So Scrappy. And be sure to have a look at all of the wonderful kits there! Also be sure to check out all of the awesome freebies!
