Beautiful Lilac Flowers by Osweetmadeline

I have always loved this beautiful tissue paper flowers and now you can get your own at http://www.osweetmadeline.etsy.com/ . There is a set of 3 available and in this color combo but she says if you need something else just send her a note. I think these would look incredible at a wedding, shower, birthday party, garden party or outside dinner. I have a giant white tent and they would look fabulous hanging from the center. Please stop by and check out her shop.

Here is me on my brand new 2009 KLR650

My husband was a sweetie and did this video for me. On Monday I took a big leap and got a 2009 Kawasaki KLR650 Dual Sport. It is my first running motorcycle and I am having so much fun learning to drive it. My husband got the same bike last year and is just loving it. It goes on and off road which is great because we have tons of off roads to travel. When I learn to ride it a whole lot better we will go on road trips together. I am really looking forward to it and I feel really cool having my own motorcycle. We are also hoping to document a bunch of our trips. My husband has his bike and helmet decked out with cameras so we can record all kids of stuff.

The half Naked Roller Blader REvisted

I am so excited. Spring is here now because I saw the half naked Rollerblader. I was so excited I had to call my mom and let her know it was official. This year he was only in tiny running shorts so maybe his is now 3/4 Naked Roller Blader. I started noticing the roller blader quite a few years ago and I have included a post I wrote back in 2005 about him. He just makes me smile.

There is a wonderful older man (mid 60's I'm guessing) that Rollerblades down the side of the my highway. I see him on my drive home from work and he is always smiling. It is great because every time I see I am glad he is having such a great time. He is quite the character because he doesn't wear much when he Rollerblades. He had got on a tiny pair of running shorts and a slip of a t shirt that is only the collar and maybe 4inch down and the sleeves are also cut off. He does wear all the appropriate safety gear. Which I think is funny because he has so much skinned exposed that the safety gear seems Irrelevant I have been driving by him and smiling for about five years now and he is always a great sign that spring has sprung. I bet he is very interesting and happy person. I'm can't stop smiling every time I see him. He is just having so much fun. I sure hope I get to see him for many more years to come

Funny Comic Strip Created by my 8 year old Son

I am so proud of my son and his creative talent. Just about a month ago he started created his own cartoon called Joe and Skratch. He has been coming up with all the ideas himself and then drawing all the comic strips. Sometimes he does a few at night and sometimes he does just one. Some of them are very funny to me and some of them are very funny to his 6 year old brother. I told him maybe I just don't get some of the kid jokes (i usually get an eye roll for this). I also don't usually laugh hysterically when someone says poop and both of my boys do. They have a great sense of humor.

We have since taken the time to edit and turn some of the comic strips into videos on Youtube so we can share them with everyone. He has gotten great feedback and is so happy when people comment on his videos. He narrates them all and it is really funny. This last one had great sound effects. I also thought it was really funny. I just really wanted to take the time to brag about him. As a parent its really cool to see your child push themselves to become better and more creative. So if you have the time please watch the video and leave a comment if you like it. Thanks so much
