Sunny Summer Days Linky and a Giveaway

I still can't believe that it's July already!!  I can't believe how fast June went!  After a week off, we've brought back our summer linky.



First, I am participating in a Giveaway with "Just a Primary Girl" for her 100 Follower Giveaway!  So exciting!!  I just love reading her blog and following her on Instagram!  Click HERE or on the picture below to enter her giveaway.  There are some fantastic prizes and amazing blogs to follow.


We are also participating in Jaime {Bright Concepts 4 Teachers} and Aimee's {Primarily-Speaking} 500 follower give away!! These lovely ladies have teamed up together for an awesome 4 day give away!  Each Rafflecopter will last one week long! Be sure to enter to win some fabulous products!

Here's what I've been up to this week.  During our trip to New York last week, we spent one night in Buffalo, NY.  We didn't realize how close we were going to be to Niagara Falls and ended up taking a spontaneous trip to see it.  We stayed on the New York side and it was beautiful!!


We are on vacation in the Outer Banks, North Carolina with our family.  We rented a house right on the beach with my in-laws - 7 kids and 8 adults.  So far we've enjoyed the beach and relaxed by the pool.  Waking up and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves coming in is heaven.  
I could get used to this!





My husband loves to play disc golf.  So, we stopped at a few courses on our way to New York and then on our way from New York to North Carolina.  I braved the first course and walked with him.  It was a ridiculous walk!  We were in the woods with not a lot of paths.  I'm not really much of a hiker so it was rough!



The second course he stopped at had a pet chicken that decided to camp out by my feet while I was working on my computer at the picnic tables.  I gotta admit - it freaked me out!  I grew up in a small farm town so I'm usually not freaked out by some animals, but it kept making noises and pecking at the ground.  Wasn't really sure what to expect!


As you can see, I was working on a place value matching game.  Getting ready for the beginning of the year!!  

The third course we went to I ended up going to a walk and found a beautiful area with a canoe dock.


Then I spent some time starting my newest project - Super Heroes Decor Pack.  Here's a sneak peek!  I'm still adding to this pack.  Is there anything specific that you like to use in your classroom decorations that would be good to add to it?

 Table Signs
Numbers
Holidays for Calendars

 Name Tags
(I also created some without lines.)

Days of the Weeks

Months

Bunting


So, what have you been up to the last week or so?  We would love for you to link up and share with us what you've been working on, what you've been doing, or where you've been on vacation.


In case you are new to Linky Parties, here are some helpful directions.  
There are a few ways to copy the image for the Linky Party.
1.  You can right click on the picture and choose "Copy Image".
2.  You can take a screen shot.  I'm not sure how you do this on a PC, but on a Mac, press "shift command 4".  Then trace the object you want to take a picture of.  It will save the image to your desktop.
Now you have the image to insert in your blog post and link back up to our blog.  

Please be sure to complete the link below so you can add the link to your blog for everyone to read.

Can't wait to see what everyone is up too!
