Boys will be boys

Well in my house anyway-lol, and I think all over the world. It's just their toys that get more expensive as they get older- hahaha.

On our holiday it was a DAILY thing- from how much they could eat at breakfast, to how many fish they caught ( even security gaurd on the beach knew the fish count-lol), to the golf game, lawn bowls and ten pin bowling to name the FEW- But they had so much fun teasing and ribbing each other everyday about who was in the *lead*- lol Just check some of these photo's- and Oh Boy most of them this year are of my *two boys* doing what they do best - TEASING!


While putting my *face* on for dinner the one night I hear this commotion behind me on the bed with lots of laughter- grab my camera of course and even a *rough and tumble* was to see who was the strongest! lol


I haven't heard Wayne laugh so much in ages !!


And it carried through to the Bowls match,


Check Dad standing behind Nathan *chirping* the odds and teasing him that he needed to join the *old mans* league with his Grandfather! lol


Nathan going- OOOOOOOOH, think it's gonna make it old man! lol


Yup, there's proof I played too- man I need more than ONE game to tighten that ass- but after 4 bowls on all 21 ends it sure was STIFF the next day-BWAHAHAHAHA

But I do it in STYLE- I played sipping one of these! hee hee


Now THAT is how you play bowls in style- lol

It's Nathans 18th Birthday on Sunday and my son only wants his Grandparents around for a braai (BBQ)- HUH? Hello- where did he come from??- lol. I know he has a big fishing competition on Saturday but he could have had a party or have gone out if he wanted too- KWIM?- NO, he just wants a quiet braai-. He said if he had a party the house would get wrecked! - Sheeee's I know who the ADULT in this house is- and it isn't Wayne or I- BWAHAHAHA.

OOOOH- and to get back into the swing of things I SCRAPPED!

Yup, found my poor brain was all over the place for a few days so sat down to play with Jenni's (Chaos Lounge) new kit Holly's Spring Treasures and get back into the *swing* of things slowly-


Check out Jenn's blog here for all the SALE news and the AWESOME word art freebie that I used in my LO-


Yup- had FAR tooo many of those Orange coloured things with the umbrella's- bwahahahaha.

Well that's it for today- and of course I'm leaving you with the frame I used today ;-)


You can pick it up here- .

Hope you all have a super duper weekend and I will be back with some photo's on Monday of Nathan's Bday ;-)

Thank you for sharing the all always look like you're having such fun. It's great to see. Nathan and Wayne are like teenage brothers LOL - my daughter's hubby and his brothers are always betting on something to prove who is the "best". All too often it ends in a wrestling match of some sort.

Thank you too for the frame...your gifts are always received with gratitude for your generous sharing of your talent and work.

Have a GREAT day!

Good Morning Miss Kim, it looks like the boys had a wonderful time. You as well. I do hope that you got a chance to relax too! Isn't it funny how sometimes, a person can be more tired from being on vacation than one was before they left.

I love the metal frame with the tag. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and it is great to see you back in scrapland.
