ahhh !! think of all the money you will save by using these adorable diapers! Ready to save some money yet not sure if cloth diapering is for you? read what my friend Rachel wrote about her experience.. Dry Bunz Cloth Diapers are the product of my own experience with wanting to save money when baby #3 arrived, yet i was convinced there was a better way that the conventional way of cloth diapering with pins and rubber pants.. what I discovered was, There is a better way, but paying 16 - 18 dollars for a cloth diaper seemed foolish to me. but I decided to order a few to check them out, and thus started my journey to designing a pattern that fit better than the 16.50 diaper i had bought.

A few weeks ago I hated the thought of summer with it's hours of sunshine, hours of sand and wind at the lake, fresh fruit by the buckets, sleeping in, sleeping under the stars, baby kittens, The sound of loads of fun as the kids play in the sprinkler, the stillness of reading under the shade tree, the fresh smell of laundry that has been dried in the hot summer sun.

This Picture is the exact moment of GOOD-BY SUMMER. This was the exact moment that I accepted the fact that fall was right around the corner. BUT first lets remember all the FUN times of summer!!

MUD PIES!!!! This was supposed to be the perfect family picture!! It did not happen, the rock was not big enough and the 2yr old was more worried about making sure he has his share of the rock!! LOL
