Now that I got the business out of the way this is what I have been doing. Manchester United was in the States to play four exhibition games...luckily enough one happened to be in Philly and we scored tickets for it.

They took on our new hometown team, The Philadelphia Union. Of course Man U won but we had a great time anyway!

We also had our beach summer is complete without a trip to the Jersey Shore. Nick boogie boarded so much he got a terrible rash all over his belly...didn't stop him though.

Jack was all over the skim board this year!

This year we went with our BFF's! Check out all our boys on the beach...there was no way to get them all looking at me at the same time!

The boys were so excited to have their friends with them. I mean seriously what could be better than having sleepovers in hotels, lol!

Last but not least I got a fabulous box of goodies from Scrapbook Trends. It had a ton of Tattered Angels goodies in it so I decided to play a little.

This is the first layout I have ever done with a vintage photo of myself.

I better run. I hear the garage door going up...the boys are back from a Phillies game. Time to hustle them off to bed! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I will be back later this week with post for Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, GCD Studios, and Want2Scrap.
