The Boy On The Board.....

July 10, 2009

UPDATE: I am under construction here at "The Long Road to China" I am doing my first blog makeover on my own:) Now that I know photoshop, I figured I would try my hand at blog design. It wasn't easy, but I am pretty thrilled with the results. A special thanks to Marla and Jennifer for your help with some of the HTML code. I couldn't have done it without you:) Still working on my signature and little seperater, but I should have it all finished shortly!!

Here is a little peak at Nick during our beach weekend getaway.......he loves to skimboard and almost every picture I have of him from that weekend, he is riding either his skimboard or boogie board. This pic is my fav because I love the look of determination on his face and the splash of water at his feet!!

We have really missed Nick.........He has been gone all week. While we were on the Cape for the fourth, we met up with my Aunt and Uncle. They took Nick back to Rhode Island for the week. He loves going and spending time with his cousin Eddie. Some of you might remember Eddie, he has made quite a few appearances here on the blog last summer and over the holidays when they came to visit.

Tomorrow I am heading to Conneticut to meet them and bring Nick and Eddie down here. Eddie is now going to spend a week with us!! We are trying to plan a couple of day trips with the kids and I am sure we will make a trip or two to the pool.

Sorry I have been a total blog slacker....I think it is the time of year. Too much to do and not enough hours in the day. Have a great weekend......I can't believe how quickly this week has gone. I hope that I will have some fun things to post next week:)

Love this one Lisa...especially the expression on his face and the splash of water. I smiled when I first saw this, boys are so great!

Jo said...

Great shot! My Nick went skim boarding yesterday while I was in Newport. He said the water was great and the weather was much better than on the 4th! Too bad you're just passing through Connecticut, it would be wonderful to meet you.

Enjoy the boys and have a great weekend!

I read your post with Sweetie Pie on my lap and when I pointed to the picture of Nick and asked who it was she clearly said WonderBoy's name. She's no dummy...I thought the same when I saw Nick on his board.

We really need to get our baby boys together.

Safe trip up picking up the boys!

Wow!! The blog looks great and all on your own--wow!! You are a multi talented woman!!! I love the pic of Nick on the skim board. My boys love to skim board as well and we just got back from the beach and the boys skim boarded a ton! Great pics and it was nice to catch up on what you guys are doing.

Lisa- Love, love, love this new blog design!! The colors are fab and the opening pics blow me away! You are doing a great job!

Sorry I didn't call this afternoon... the kids tricked me into staying at the pool too long! haha!! But I am going to try tomorrow to catch you. No worries if you are not around.. I know the weekends are crazy. I just appreciate your help!

Nick is such a cutie... love it.

I LOVE the new design. I am also trying to work on designing my own blog. I like change and would like to be able to change my blog design whenever I get a whim. I also love the pictures of Nick skim boarding. My kids spend their weekends at the lake tubing and boarding and anything else that is going to keep them in the water.

I remember last year when Nick and his cousin did the same thing, right? What great memories for those two boys!

Love the picture of Nick...he is growing up so fast! He is so handsome!

No worries on the blog slacking, I totally relate, this time of the year is a busy one! Take care! Lisa
