10 Things.

1.  My son starts his week long Band Camp today.  This is his first year and it's the first year that they are not doing sleep away camp.  He is really happy it's only a day camp.  He was a bit nervous this morning.  I know he will have a great time.

2.  Lily has a busier social calendar than I do.  Which makes my calendar really full.  Lots of play dates and birthday parties over the last couple weeks. 

3. We have been home from our Florida adventure for over 2 weeks now and I still need to blog about our adventures.  I finally downloaded my photos from my phone today.

4.  We rented a car a couple times and went sightseeing/exploring sunny Florida.  I finally got to see the Mickey power pole.  I had seen it on blogs, but never in person.  It was really cool!

4.  The Erie County Fair has come to a close for another summer.  It's an August tradition here in WNY.  I am very impressed with the new improvements to the fair.  We went 3 times this year.  My favorite thing is the Butterfly exhibit. 
(Hope my family can make it back to Hamburg to next year's 175th fair.)

5.  Ian has middle school orientation on Wednesday.  Where did the summer go?  While I am ready for them to go back to school (insert evil laugh here), I am not ready for summer to end.

6.  I am ready to go back to Disney for my 40th birthday in November.  Not so sure about being ready to turn 40, but being in Disney will make it more palatable.  :)  Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party here I come.  (yes, we are going back to Disney again!)

7.  I am giving away this special Little Mermaid necklace over here.

8.  Last weekend there was a family reunion of sorts in PA...sadly we missed it.  I am traveling down that way to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday this coming weekend.  We couldn't make the trip 2 weeks in a row.

9.  Never say never.  Up until last week, I refused to make the Monster High characters. Not really sure why, Lily was Frankie Stein for Halloween last year and I am sure she would have squealed in delight if I did.  Of course, Lily now wants an ornament of her own.

10.  You are never to old to be silly.  ;)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday.

Wow- I can see how you hate to have summer end. You are having a great time! But it sounds as if your good times continue into the next season.

I hope you write down lots of "One time at band camp..." stories.

We were in Disney July 31 to August 8! And it was trip #41. There is no such thing as too much Disney. My 6 year old granddaughter loves Monster High along with Disney princesses...

Wow, you HAVE been busy! My kids have been all jammed up with playdates, too, but keeping them busy tires them out LOL :)

We are doing the Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time this October - we can't wait.
