More Pics

Busy Busy Busy. It's so nice to have stuff to do again! lol.

I made the Catwalk at SisTV this week for my latest Mojo layout!! Such a great surprise! :D

I also finished two layouts. That should be a record for me since I feel like I haven't done much scrapping lately. One is for the next STM challenge, so I can only show a sneak. The next one isn't for anything in particular...I just wanted to scrap the pic! :D


I used the latest "The Dozens" kit as well as some of last month's "Style Phyle" from Sis.


The orange felt/wood heart as well as the ladybug are items I found at a fleamarket here. I wish I picked up more of the ladybugs b/c they're just too cute!!
Here are more pics from the past couple of weeks. We took the kids to the Frankfurt Zoo after we dropped Josh's sister off at the airport. Honestly, this was not one of the best zoos I've been to. I was really disappointed. The zoo itself is situated in the downtown area, surrounded by apartments and office buildings. You know what it reminded me of? The cartoon, "Madagascar." Despite feeling bad for the animals, I was able to put my zoom lens from Christmas to use and got some pretty good shots.

Ah...the lion in his natural chain linked fence habitat. *sarcasm*




We took the kids to Nuremburg for the "Volksfest." See that rollar coaster shaped like the Olympic Rings? I rode that when I was 10 at Oktoberfest in Munchen (Munich). I was surprised to see it after all these years! I'm sure it's not the SAME one, but it did bring back memories.




The kids rode these little kiddie rides all day. Since it was "family day" that particular day, we were able to enjoy cheaper prices. And lucky for us we got there shortly after the carnival opened, so we didn't have to fight the crowds.

Ah. A Ferris Wheel. Why is it the older I get, the wussier I become?! I used to LOVE rides, but OMG. Josh and I were a couple of chickens. We wouldn't have gone on, but Anberlin really wanted to ride it. Sheesh. We went around a few times. I have to admit, the view was beautiful. After about the 4th time around, we stopped. AT THE VERY TOP. I didn't realize what was going on and screamed, "OH MY GOD! DID WE STOP!???!!???" Josh got this look on his face like "shut up!" I didn't realize how loud that was. They were just letting people off and getting new riders on. Once again...sheesh. O_o


OMG!!!! Once again, I haven't had this since Oktoberfest! *drooooooool* I'll let you in on a little known fact about me (if you don't know already)...I love food. I'm not terribly picky. I looooooooove seafood. I could easily give up chicken, beef, and pork but couldn't do without seafood. Anyways, we went into the tent that was set up next to the grilled fish so I could have a meal and Josh could grab a beer. Mmmmmmmm. It was so good.

A mannequin at H&M in the men's department. Josh was trying on some clothes so I patiently sat with the kids in this small sitting area. I thought the way the hand was positioned was neat. lol.


I'll leave you with a couple of pics to "awwwwwwwwwww" over. I know I do when I look at it.

Wow, what a great post! I always enjoy seeing your los and sneaks of upcoming ones. Looks like you had a good time with your zoom lens at the zoo. I was totally thinking of Madagascar with the way you were describing it. And I totally feel for you about ferris wheels. I'll have to tell you about my California Adventure experience sometime. Those photos of Josh & Sebastian are precious!
