Happy birthday!

Happy birthday Adam!

Today he did a triathlon upIsland. We went up yesterday with his bike racks that he's made that all the triathlons around are using and set them up (actually...it was him and a couple of volunteers). Then we went camping. He was thinking campsite or motel and I said either. I turned down a motel. What was I thining? Camping was so much fun though. And when you get up and leave at 6am then paying for a room isn't worth it.



So Adam raced today and the kids and I made this sign for him this morning, sitting in the back of the van. I know it's hard to see, but we used the 97% Complete stickers (Wow) from 7 Gypsies around the edge and then Elsie alphabet Fontwerks stamps with the polka dots and some AC ribbon. And I have some Technique Tuesday stamps that have a couple of stamps that say #1 and ATHLETE, so we used those after his name. And the arrows are SassaFrassLass stamps.



And then here's Adam crossing the finish line in 23rd place. The kids wanted him to be #1 (it even says so on the sign) and he was aiming for 37th (that's how old he turned today...I hope it's okay to tell people that!).

Colin went sailing with my parents Friday night after being at a birthday party Thursday night. He came home from sailing with a cold and has been asleep since at least 5:30 tonight. Maybe he's going to sleep like I did last weekend. He has a fun skimboarding camp to go to on Tuesday so I hope he's feeling better by then.

And check out this kit. Memory Lane (the scrapbook store I work at) does monthly kits and this one has been flying out of the store. I love it!



I hope everyone else had a great weekend!

That kit is awesome!

I've always loved how triathaletes have their number written on their arm like that. Maybe I'll do that next time I'm on my run so I feel like a pro athlete. *S*

That sign is so cute. I'm sure you guys put all the other signs to shame with those 7 Gypsies stickers and stamps and all that.
