Happy Saturday Friends!
The cool and rainy days have moved on, and this past week was hot, Hot, HOT!!! Beach weather has finally arrived, and we took advantage of it two days last week. I just wanted to share a quick 16 second vid I made while watching Autumn running around oceanside.
Previously she was always cautious about the waves, but this year she was all about riding the waves on her boogie board. And the crabs, there were many, many of them hiding under nearby rocks, and tons of kids were searching for them. Autumn ended up being a hit with all the boys and girls who were afraid to pick any up. She would roll her eyes and say "I'll do it for you", and she did.
This coming Wordless Wednesday my photo will be of Autumn and some of the
MANY dozens of crabs she collected.
Have a great weekend and see you on Monday where I will share the beginnings of my latest creative challenge :)

Welcome to Friday!
This week's "Fabulous Friday Finds" post is all about the
magical, mystical, mythological, and beautiful creatures we call
What child has never wondered if fairies truly exist? Of course we pretend that they do, such as with the Tooth Fairy. It's fun to create a sense of wonder within a child's innocent mind. A short time in life where such things can exist.
This week I have found nine magical Etsy creations all about fairies. Each item is pretty and irresistable!
Each item is numbered and below the collage is a direct link to each shop if you'd like to pay them a visit.

Happy Day All! I'm excited to announce that today I am the co-host for one of my most favorite weekly blog hops around! It is called "Thursday Favorite Things", and is run by Katherine from Katherine's Corner. I was fortunate to come across her lovely blog one day, and have met many new friend's through her.
Blog hops are such a wonderful way to connect with other bloggers, and make new bloggy friends. If you've never blogged yourself you may think that blogging is an activity done in isolation, but it is NOT! There are so many wonderful people out there in the blogosphere with similar interests and activities.
Blogging isn't just about putting your words out there, but about communicating with others by sharing ideas and advice etc. I've even heard a story about two bloggy friends who nervously met in person, but ended up having a great time together!
If this all sounds fun to you read on! .....
Thursdays Favorite Things Hop is where you can link your favorite post to share with old and new followers, or write a post about your favorite things!
Here are the rules, yes there are rules. But just a few:
Now hop on and share your favorites.
If you’d like to post this blog hop on your page please just grab the linky code. Or if you would like to be a co-host please contact Katherine *participants who link up will be sent weekly reminders of this wonderful hop*
Please grab the hop button to share with others, you can copy and paste the image with a link to KatherinesCorner.com OR grab the code from Katherines Corner it's on her right sidebar. It’s always nice to have the hop button on your post. But it IS NOT mandatory.
Looking forward to making many new friends :)

"The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope."
My girl absolutely LOVES fishing.
Although we live right by a lake, we don't go as often as we should.
Yesterday afternoon Autumn and I were home alone, and she asked me if I would
take her fishing. Immediately I had a flashback moment of when my son was her age,
and he asked me to take him fishing.
He had insisted he knew just what to do with the worms and the fish, so I agreed to take him. He dug up a few worms, got his pole, and when he did catch a fish, he didn't know what to do. Surprise! We then had to ask someone to help us, which was a bit embarrassing.
So when Autumn told me things I knew I had learned my lesson long ago, and told her she had to wait for her father to take her. But after hours of her asking over and over, and then actually telling me how you unhook the fish etc., it did appear maybe she was serious.
She told me she wasn't going to use worms, but bread as bait. So off we went. And I have to give this girl credit, because she knew exactly what she was doing. Within the first five minutes she caught a fish, reeled it in, unhooked it and said
"See, I told you I knew what I was doing!".
Over the next hour she caught a total of six fish, and was so happy with herself. Now she can add fishing to her summer to-do list, and next time I will say yes right away :)
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Did anyone else do any fishing, for Father's Day perhaps?
