Happy 50th Molly! {and parade pics}


Pat's sister, Molly, is celebrating her 50th at the end of this month. When I saw the fabulous inspiration card from Shari Carroll over at CASE Study, I was immediately inspired to make a card for Molly.  This is my first of two cards this week that will have no stamping on it!  I cut the 50 out on my Cricut and the stickers are Simple Stories that I've had for a while.

I thought I'd also share a couple of pictures from Loveland's 4th of July parade.  Marcel and Jonathon both walked in the parade as part of Loveland's Stage Company's group. They were proudly wearing their Oliver t-shirts.  Both of them ran out of candy before they got to us.  I love Jonathon's smile in this picture.  He had to run and get Marcel from the other side of the street so that we could see him.


And here's Collin with Jonthan's good friend, Cam.  They were enjoying kettle corn while watching the parade.  The weather was gorgeous all weekend and we stayed in Loveland to watch a local band, The Rusty Griswolds (great 80s music) and the fireworks.  Tons of friends were there too. A great night.


As I type this, I'm having the perfect end to my weekend, watching the Wimbledon finals. A great match so far!  I hope you all had a relaxing holiday weekend too.
