Method Playground is up again

the time just flies by to fast. I can't believe i havn't posted in so long. The vacation threw me off a bit. We had soooooooooooooooo much fun. We were camping in the mountains - but we had grass, water hookups, sewer hookups and power. It made for some really nice camping. We also had miniture golfing and swimming within a few miles. We were right along the snake river. It was running really high though so we couldn't take any of the kids fishing - which was the main reason we went - but we had plenty to do to keep them busy. We even went to Bear World - the kids thought that was great. Baylee did so good - every night i would just lay her in the motorhome with a movie - she would tell me to go away - and she would be asleep by 8:30 or so every night. Some vacations by the end - your ready to come home - ecspecially after 6 days - but we really could have stayed longer.
We went on a little nature hike - every little bit there would be signs with information about the valley you were looking at or about the flowers that were growing. The kids loved it.We found a litltle creek that the kids all cooled off in.My cute mom and dad came up for 4 of the daysThis is the couple we went with. every year since i can remember we have made this an anniversary trip with these 2 and stayed in a cabin thats near the campgrounds - but this year we decided to make it into a family trip - it was well worth it.This is my good friend katie and her cute munchkin gage - she had her work cut out for her with a little guy - it seems she was in the trailor MOST of the time. We made some peanut butter fruit dip at the beginning of the trip - its great with apples and everytime i would go in her trailor we would sneak it out and eat it - we never shared with anyone!
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
8 oz cream cheese (i buy the whipped tubs)
about 3 tblsp of milk - just enough to make it creamy.
It really is to die for.......
Thanks for stopping by - even though my posts have been so few and far between. We are going camping AGAIN this weekend for the fourth - sooooo........hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend.

Here is my Method Playground layout: I used Lily Bee paper and rubons - Lily Bee is giving away a prize to the winner - so make sure you head over and join in the challenge. The guest designer this time around is one of my faves - Staci Taylor - love her to pieces! She's so talented and such a sweetheart. The challenge was to use a chipboard element as a stencil for hand stitching. I layed these Scenic Route Circles and traced half circles around the project and a smaller circle in the left corner. So fun.

Love this layout! I need to do some tracing of templates like this for stitching... great idea!

And I also need to make some of that peanut butter dip! Sounds perfect for the 4th :)

Glad you had an awesome vacation!
