summer vaca shirts

We have had such a fun summer and were so lucky to go on family vacations. California was so fun with my fam and we just got back from Florida with Bob's fam. It was a blast! I know you guys are prob so sick of hearing about all the homemade shirts but I just feel like they make any occasion that much more fun!
I spent a little bit more time on these shirts only because I had a little opps. I bought 13 white shirts from old navy and then dyed them lemon yellow with Rit Dye. Well...I don't know what I was thinking but I had a more lighter shade of yellow in mind and they came out banana yellow. They were bright, too bright for a group of 13 to ever wear at the same time. So I tried many different steps to tone down the yellow and what finally worked was adding a cup of bleach to the washer. I thought it would spot them but it made them all an even tone of pale yellow. Still not the original vision but much better than banana yellow. I put together a logo on powerpoint and then screen printed it on the shirts in royal blue. Everyone looked so cute in their matching shirts on the beach.

Both my sister-in-laws are named Allison, crazy I know! Whats even crazier is that me and Matt's Alyson have the same middle name! It gets pretty funny when we all travel together and there are 3 Allison Booths.

It was such a fun week with the fam in Destin and all the little girls had a blast playing together. We find out on August 17th if we will add another girl to the mix or stir things up with a boy! I can't wait!

So fun! What font did you use on the pictures in this post? I've been looking for one that is similar to my handwriting.

Well I for one LOVE all your screen printed shirts! Keep 'em coming! And how do you organize your pictures like that on your blog (with the 3 small pictures side by side)? Do you use an editing program?
