Why is is that summer days and weeks all just blend together? Here we are halfway through summer (as my 10 year old keeps reminding me). School supplies are already out in the stores, crazy! We had a fun week...here's a peek.
4th of July! We had Mom & Dad come over to cookout, campfire style. We made these.
We call them "pudgy pies". I have made these since I was a young girl at Girl Scout camp.
Here's a pizza one being put together.
Ella is making a lemon pie here.
Do your kids get a kick out of flatulence? Oh, mine do! This stuff is something that brings Kyla much joy.
Noise Putty! It's slimy and when you push your fingers in it, well, it makes "that" noise.
She got to giggling so much, it was contagious!
Today we went bowling. We have a local alley that does a "Kids Bowl Free" program during the summer and some gracious friends got a pass for Kevin and I to bowl too. This is how Ella dressed to go.
Since socks are required for bowling, and we all know how she LOVES socks (NOT!), I didn't care what she had on!
After bowling we went to visit Kevin's grandma. She is turning 90 next week and is one of the most gracious, energetic and fun ladies! Here are the kids with Great Grandma Miller.
Today Ella had A spend the night. We decided to head to the pool after dinner to wear everyone out! We also had our friends the Lyons meet us there.
Ethan in action!
This came today...
I hope it lives up to all the hype Sara has given it! I just want to draw your attention to the rule book, with Almanac. Are you serious? This game might be too much for me!
We have a mystery plant growing in the front yard.
We discovered it with a huge bloom. It now has some more. Could it be pumpkin? Ethan said he threw some pumpkin seeds out there last year, but not sure. What a fun surprise!
I went and picked Bryce up from a sleep over and we were going to run to Meijer to grab a few things. When we walked in there was a sign about Dan LeFevour being there from 2:00-3:00 for an autograph session. For those of you who don't know who he is, Dan LeFevour was the Chicago Bears quarterback pick. Bryce is a HUGE Bears fan! He begged me to stay. I called home and let Kevin know and we waited almost 2 hours, second in line, for this.
The coveted autograph on the hat, and then....
Oh. My. Stars! I had the happiest boy ever!! Here's hoping Dan LeFevour has a great career with the Chicago Bears!
Hope you have had a great week too!!
