Cupcake Montage

Haley treated us to CRAVE cupcakes at the Bloomin' Inn....they were so good, thanks Haley. I just couldn't resist taking shots of everyone and their cupcake of choice! Who doesn't love a cupcake?

Bloomin' Inn

We had a wonderful time during a scrapbooking retreat at the Bloomin' Inn this weekend. As usual we enjoyed scrapbooking & crafting till the wee hours, great food, some R & R and fresh country air. Here's our group photo from the weekend: (in the back) Haley & Dee-Ann, (in the front) Kim, Rhiannon, Jesse, Charlene, Kari & I Kim & Rhiannon touching the much-talked about 'hoof lamp' (creepy)
Rhiannon's first ever scrapbook page...she's a natural
Kari & Charlene...bridal bootcampers
Kim & Starr...little photo shoot
Dee lookin' hot after coming from Shelby's graduation
Kari's fiancee stashed this note in her supplies...how sweet!
Cowboy Don's singin' entertainment
The food is so good there...the best part is that they cook for you!
Dining outdoors...a real treat
Warm rhubarb pie for dessert...yum
The gals in front of Don's bus...
...and we loved that Don named his bus 'Chariot of the Sun'
Dee-Ann & I enjoying a guilt-free-mommy weekend
Beautiful photo of Dee (while talking to her hubby on the cell)
...and a great shot of Kim (I woke her up for this one)
We had fun talking photos in front of the new sign

Trip to the Zoo with Dad

Cory took Ace & Scarlett to the Calgary Zoo this weekend while I was away. I was so proud of him for taking #1 the camera and #2 these photos...

Tuckered right out...I guess it was a great day with Daddy!

Cheryl's Goodbye Dinner

Our good friend Cheryl & family are moving to London, ON. A few weeks ago we had a chance to take her out for a lovely dinner at The Keg. We had some laughs, took photos and indulged in great food to celebrate our dear friend. We plan to keep in close touch with Cheryl via email and blogging...but it won't be the same as having her so close by. We'll miss you Cheryl and wish you, Bob, Kailyn & Lukas all the best as you start a new chapter of your lives a few provinces East.

Here's Cheryl and a good ol' plate of Alberta beef
Cheryl & Christa (her sister)
Amber & Tyler
Me & Am
Cheryl & her Mom & sisters: Irene, Christa, Cheryl & Sarah
The gals out for the evening...had so much fun!

Happy Fathers Day!

Cory had a wonderful Father's Day and enjoyed his gifts.

I'm a little behind on posting so I'd like to say 'thanks for standing by' to all my readers...I really appreciate you checking my BLOG. I've set aside some time tonight to post, so stay tuned for some good stuff...including a sneak peak at the new Stampin Up Fall & Winter Idea Book & Catalogue!
