Summer Lovin...

*sings* Summer Lovin'... had me a blast...
What a fun weekend! We spent pretty much the whole day outside...
We did water balloons...
*spent about 20 minutes filling them... and they were gone in 3 minutes*
but it was a blast and worth every second!
*Izzaq - Gracie - Zavery*
Then we pulled out the sprinkler... and the kids spent about an hour chasing Gracie around. They both absolutely adore her... and are convinced every day that she has to choose which Zrust boy she will marry... Im so not ready for this - and am doomed by the time they turn 13.
Ladies First!

Lastly - after almost drowning while trying to drink from the sprinkler... we headed in for the day for a family movie night... what a great day... don't you wish sometimes that real life could be this? Just playing and fun... no worries, no bills, no work... just. summer. lovin'.

New Giveaway!! CHASE DREAMS! Recycled Shapes Crayons for toddlers!

Many of you awesome blog followers are also twitter followers... and if your a twitter follower i KNOW you have seen me tweet about Chase Dreams... (and if I remember right, they have had a few shout outs on the blog too... a couple Favorites Fridays... and a Creative Play Christmas post :) Anyways, im rambling already... I feel SOOOO horrible because I have just been SO insanely busy trying to catch up since the move... Chase Dreams sent me a HUGE package full of awesome little St. Patty's Day & Easter crayon sets to do a big giveaway and i TOTALLY couldn't get it up in time because of the other giveaways in front of this one.  But here I am now, ready to rant and rave about the awesome-ness that is Chase Dreams.

I love me some Chase Dreams... For Christmas this past year I came across her AMAZING mustache crayons while putting together a huge Mustache themed christmas gift for my sister...  they were a MUST! And If I remember... my girlie BabyBooFelt even got some for Gavin!
I also snagged a set of Lego crayons (check back in her store, there aren't any listed right now). Then of course, thats when the obsession began... because come Valentines Day... I had to go get The Valentines Hearts!! So clearly they're totally rad, right!? But I havn't even told you the best part yet... Their totally eco-friendly!! "All of my crayons are made from recycled, non-toxic crayons. Previously slated for the landfills, I gather up all of the bits and pieces from schools and families that have outgrown them. I melt the crayons down and hand-pour them into new shapes to give them a fresh, new existence."  Could this be any cooler?? Oh yeah, and they're so cheap!! Great quality crayons and MORE than great prices... and of course, kids love them :)
