Nope not a layout but just had to share with everyone......I had THE MOST AMAZING day with my brother and his family.  On Thursday, it was my nephews 2nd birthday and I was blessed to be able to spend the evening with them.   That night we planned to spend Saturday together so this morning I went shopping for BBQ goodies and headed to mom's house so the kids can play in the pool together.  The cousins had a blast.  When the clouds started to appear, we packed up and headed to his house where they spent hours playing video games.

THANK YOU GOD for blessing me with this beautiful day!!  I guess it's true what they say......if you surround yourself with positive thoughts and positive people, positive things will come.   (I have to thank a fabulous friend of mine for know who you are - hee hee......Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!)

Here are a few pictures of our day!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th of July!!

Hugs, T

This is me and my brother Fernando.  We are only ONE year and 20 days apart and have ALWAYS been very close.  I LOVE HIM TO THE MOON AND BACK!!!!!

Here is the 2 year old Birthday boy Gabriel (with Kasi of course) - isn't he so yummy and delicious??


OH YEAH...HE'S POSING.........isn't he sooooo CUTE??

AND THOSE LITTLE FEET.....I'm definitely scrapping these :) together the pictures that follow of him jumping into the pool!!  (I put the camera on SPORT for these)

  2. I loved this post. I am a new follower and will be checking daily. So thrilled when a fellow Miamian is sharing great things. My kids are 11 1/2 months apart and it's hard now, but your comment about being close to your brother totally hit my heart. I'm so glad my Cassie and Bryan will be close like you and your brother are.

    God bless!

  4. So happy for you that you are spending time with your loved ones. I always told you not to let others get to you because the only one losing time with family would be you. You deserve to be with those you love and love you back.
    Great pictures. Can't wait to see the layouts you create with these pics.
    Happy fourth.
    You are right about positive energy. Life is too short for all those negative thoughts.

  5. Hi SIS! Looks like you had a great time with your family. Love to see those smiles :)
    Hugs, C
