Swimming with Lovely Days!

First, thank you for all of your concern over my back. I actually went to the doctor today who gave me a muscle relaxant and stated that I had many knots and spasms. I was actually concerned it could be pneumonia since I've had my cough for about 7 weeks. My lungs were clear.....so that was good! So maybe between caring for an 85 lb child, painting all day Saturday, and the persistent cough I've had was enough for my back to call it quits for a couple of days. Needless to say, blogging and crafting have taken a bit of a back seat.

Anyway, on to the LO! I used Noel's latest kit called Lovely Days. It is such a fun, happy kit! It worked perfectly with Cort's inner tube and bathing suit colors!

Cort is happiest when in the water. Her little body suddenly becomes "free" when swimming. She kicks and moves like a crazy girl! She stays in so long her fingers, toes, and every other part of her body becomes a wrinkled prune! This pic was taken at the hotel a few weeks ago while at Special Olympics. The only way to get her out of the pool without a lot of tears and drama, was the promise of a delicious dinner! : )

Aren't those hot pink Prima flowers the prettiest happiest flowers you've ever seen?
Tomorrow I will be offering some blog candy..... : ) : )
