I am using a digital kit on Shutterfly. This digital version is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly - Project Life Turquoise Edition HERE and my 2013 album using the Shutterfly - Project Life Childhood - Mayfield Edition HERE I will hopefully be posting my 2014 pages soon.
And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week) -
Saturday - Vanessa volunteered her classroom to make paper mache dinosaur eggs for Maddie's birthday party. We did not think about how long it would take them to dry. We did 2-3 coats and they still don't feel real solid. We left them overnight to completely dry. I ran out to grab lunch and Mom and Vanessa had the bright idea to put them outside to dry. They started rolling all over and popping! I think we ended up with 26 eggs. Now all we have to do is cut the flap, spray paint them, and fill them with goodies.
Monday - Day 1 of our Washington Vacation. We flew out of DFW to Portland on American. It was the first flight that Maddie remembers. She was so excited to be on a plane and did fabulous. The rental car place was a nightmare and took almost an hour to get our car. They tried to charge us all sorts of extra charges. We drove to Mount St. Helens, about 2 hours to the Visitors Center (elev. 500'). We had lunch at Fire Mountain Grille overlooking the volcano. We stopped along the way at multiple observation points. We finally reached the Johnston Ridge Observatory (elev. 4200'). The Observatory was pretty neat and even had a seismograph machine that you jumped on and it created a seismic print off for you take home. After exploring the visitor's center, we started the Boundary Trail hike. We only hiked out about 1/2 mile to the view of the lake and then returned. We promised Maddie if she did good on the hike she could return to the visitor's center and buy a stuffed fox. She did well on the hike, so we returned to get her fox. When we were paying I saw they had a Jr. Ranger program, so Maddie completed it and got a badge for her hiking vest. We drove back down the volcano and then on to the Best Western Plus in Chehalis. We were exhausted so we just ordered Quiznos and had it delivered to our room.
