Special Days,Kayaking, Giveaway Winners and July Currently!

Hi everyone! It's been pretty much non-stop since we got home from the beach...all fun though- I love summer!
This summer I decided to institute the "Your Special Day" project.  I really want to spend one special day with each of my girls, my nieces and my nephew.  Of course, I'll need a special day with the hubs too!
It started off with the Legoland trip with my favorite little guy/nephew.  We had a great time and we are still talking about it! In my family, when we get together, it's pretty much the kids running around actually have to grab one of them mid-run to get a hug and kiss in! It was so great to spend one-on-one time together and even better to hear him keep saying, "We're having a speeeccccciiiaaaalll day!"
The next special day was with one of my girlies.  She chose Great Adventure and we went on Tuesday!  Wow- this kid is insane! Not only did we conquer every roller coaster together, this kid has no problem waiting the extra time to get the FRONT seats! Hahaah... my favorite place to sit- she really is a girl after my own heart.  Here is a pic of her in front of our first stop - Kingda Ka! It was closed last time we went, so we needed to get there ASAP! There were no lines so we walked right on...TWICE!

In case you are wondering what is like going on Kingda Ka... I found this little video for you to watch. Love the way down...You can't even see the rail at first OMG!

Back to reality.  Although I was too busy roller-coastering to post a new "Treats for the Teacher Tuesday," I will be back next week with some goodies- promise!! I do, however, have some news for last weeks winners...

The response and feedback for the posters was so terrific that I decided to pick some additional winners to sent the digital files to.  The "grand prize" (haha) winners will receive both a digital and hard copy.  Here are the winners of the last giveaway- thanks to everyone who entered! I am having such fun with these!

Finally, folks (if you are still hanging in there with me), I am linking up with Farley at Oh'Boy 4th Grade for her July Currently

Have a great day everyone!



  1. I love the idea of spending a special day with each one of your kids! (and neices and nephews) I am sure it will be just as special for all of them as it is for you! Can't wait for more teacher treat Tuesdays!
