Weekend Recap in iPhone Pictures

Wow has it really been a week since I've blogged?  Last week was busy and I was in a bad mood for a few days and I don't like to blog when I'm in a bad mood b/c it will just be one long vent.  Basically my car broke down on my way to work right near a busy intersection and my car had to be towed.  {Can't believe I didn't take a pic of my car being towed.} I got a new radiator which cost $640 (putting me in a really bad mood).  Now the car is fixed and keeping my fingers crossed that nothing else goes wrong b/c I just can't afford it.  This week is going to be a busy week too b/c my MS Fundraiser in on SATURDAY!!!  I'm so excited but still have a lot to do to be ready.  Check back later for a post w/ all the silent auction items listed!

Anyways now for the weekend.  Thursday night I went to a Hole in the Wall Gang Camp Alumni event.  I was a volunteer camp counselor in the summer of 2003 while I was in grad school.  Unfortunately that was one year prior to having a digital camera so I don't have quick access to my pictures.  It was an awesome experience.  I was there for the Sickle Cell week and the kids were great.  If you have never heard of this camp I highly recommend you check out the website.  Besides the orginal in CT there are several others across the US and abroad.  I hope someday to volunteer there again.  This was the first alumni event I attended and it was a lot of fun.  It just so happen to be located a mile from my house so super easy to get too!  This is what we did. . .

We painted a picture of the dining hall from camp!  It was a lot of fun! 

Friday night my mom came over and we put together several baskets for the silent auction.  They came out great and I'm so excited about all the great items I have!

On Saturday I went to sweet Riley's 3rd birthday party.  She has a Dora party and had a lot of fun!

Owen on the other hand is the opposite of a party animal and slept in my arms for the entire party!  According to his mom and dad he had a rough night and was pretty much awake all night so he needed a nap and Auntie Jodi made a perfect bed for him!

Sunday I had to work (per diem job supervising a visit w/ a parent and 2 kids).  It was beautiful weather here this weekend and we enjoyed several hours outside at the Topsfield Fair.  I had acutally never been so it was nice to see what it was all about but just a little too hot!

The goats w/ the floppy ears are my FAVORITE!  I want one as a pet!  We also had the pleasure of seeing racing pigs (who swam too), racing ducks, horses, bengal tigers, the largest pumpkin in New England and many other fun fair things!

And that was pretty much my weekend.  Since all these pics are from my iPhone I'm linking up for:


  1. Am I a complete freak because I hate goats?'s weird.

  2. Car trouble is the worst. It is never fun to spend money that way, is it? I am sorry you had such a bad week. I always hate it when I have to buy new tires....nothing fun about car maintenance.

    Just wanted to let you know about the water bottle labels I had at Ellie's party. I ordered them off of Etsy and the shop is called ToadallyCuteProducts. They had lots of cute things! :)
