It is hard to believe that June is halfway over. It seems like just yesterday it was May! You'd think it was May if you were here because it is in the mid-60s today. BRRRRRR!!! We had jackets and pants on to go to the farmer's market today and it still felt so cold! Probably because on Sunday it was hot and humid and temps were near 90 degrees. Speaking of the farmer's market, I looked for that steamer trunk to photograph the "big picture" of the image that I used for the mystery photo earlier this week, but the antique dealer wasn't there and that is probably because he is an outdoor vendor and it has been raining periodically all day. Perhaps next week....

Yesterday, while my older son was at VBS, my younger son and I went exploring. Just going down roads we've never been before and discovering new things about where we live. I do that a lot. Not exactly the best kind of exploring to do in my minivan, but I do it anyway. I should take my husband's SUV but it only has one car seat and as he puts it, he has "his" car and I have "my" car. Oh well, we'll see what he thinks when I get a flat tire on some gravel road up on a mountain.

Henry's favorite words right now are "mow" and "tractor," so I was hoping to just drive around and entertain him with all the farmers out riding on their tractors. If he just sees green and yellow on something moving he is ready to poop his diaper he gets so excited! And for him that was an easy way to kill two and 1/2 hours while his brother was at VBS. And it was easily accomplished because it was a beautiful day, not too hot and not too sunny, and the tractors were out everywhere and he had a ball saying "tractor" and "mow" at least ten million times in two hours. I must say that was so much better to listen to than "Diego" on the DVD player.

Anyway, we came across this really old church and cemetary in the middle of the woods along an old country road. I don't think I could find it again if I tried (navagation system doesn't cover where we live). So we stopped and checked it out. The church was so old it still had a working outhouse. Looked like something out of a Stephen King movie. Henry enjoyed all the flags and picking up all the locust (I think that is what kind of bug they were) skins on the plants (did you hear me say "yuck" as I typed that?). And, since the graves were very old, I had my hands full trying to keep him from climbing on them. Anyway, I had my camera (of course) and was able to capture some unposed moments of my son as he went from grave to grave, flag to flag. I think they turned out nice so I thought I would share some with you today....if only we sent cards on the 4th of July, these would really be perfect:

Now, back to business.....

I just put one of several new overlay sets I've completed in my store today. The other overlay sets are done, I'm just finishing up the previews and I managed to get this one in my store this morning before we headed out to the farmers market. Making previews seems to take longer than making the products sometimes. I hate making previews and it is particularly hard when you have two little ones running their matchbox cars across your computer keyboard or climbing all over you with sticky fingers that you want desperately to stay away from your computer. Click on the image to get to the product in my store and remember, the 76% off sale is still going on. Just put at least $20 worth of products in your cart and use the coupon code dadisstill76 and you will get 76% off your order.

I am the featured designer today for "Daddy's Candy" at Divine Digital. Here is the offering and just click on the image to get to the download thread:

BIG sale this weekend at Divine Digital!!! Of course I'm participating so make sure you check out the new stuff that I will be putting in the store as it will be a part of the sale, too. I won't have any full size kits but I will have some mini-kits (something new I thought I'd try), some commercial use overlays and some element packs (again, something new that several people suggested--thanks if you did---I try).

Bonus freebie alert: Rebecca Labbe, who is my only CT member and just started her own SNAPlet designing business, has a double quickpage freebie made with my "In Bloom" kit posted on her blog: http://kiden.blogspot.com/

Check it out and head on over to her blog to download and say hi:

So, enjoy the freebies and I part today with my favorite image that I took on Father's Day, my husband with my son, Sam, in our little pool (we build inground pools as a business but I'm not ready for one of those yet, so we have this nice inflatable pool)...

Have a great day and I'll have another mystery photo this weekend,
