LAGOON: Its what FUN is!

Yesterday the WOODROSE #1 gang headed to Lagoon for some fun in the sun. Oh boy did we live it up! Some of the highlights:

Our first ever time on WICKED--which of course had to be repeated
Icees, Churros, Pretzels, and Mikeshakes

Terror Ride (...for us girls...)

Standing in line for an HOUR for Samurai

The Bathroom (...for Sean...he he...just kidding Sean)

RUNNING like 13 year-olds to the Rocket when they re-opened it

Music Express (...for Mel and I...)

Waiting in line for Rattlesnake Rapids only to decide we were too wimpy to get wet in the cold

The Screamer (...for Chad...)
The guy climbing over a fence to retrieve a quarter

The Spider (...for Amie...oh wait, maybe her screaming "I DON'T LIKE THIS!!! means it wasn't a highlight...)

By 7 p.m. we were all tuckered out and headed to Texas Roadhouse for some delicious dinner and line dancing.

These girls are some of my very best friends and their husbands are better than we could have asked for. It was such a fun day to catch up, reminisce, and plan for the future. I'm so glad we've stayed so close in the 6 years since I first became a roommate!!!

Bein' Crafty

I've been feeling like being crafty lately.

Luckily, August birthdays were coming up. So I got to make aprons for Katie and Chel. I had the hardest time picking out the fabric. You know that warm bubbly feeling you get in a shoe store? Fabric stores are like that too.
I wrapped them up with a cake mix...

Then it was time for the watermelon cake I saw on a cover of a magazine. 4 tubs of frosting later...

This piece didn't make it to its full potential...
...on second thought, maybe it did...
I had tons of fun and learned a few new tricks. Now if i can just find time to clean up the mess!
