Family Night

We don’t often get to have a night where there is nowhere we need to be. No football or volleyball games, no church functions, no family visiting. Sean was off from both jobs, which is very rare. I only work in the mornings so I was free. So we took advantage of our freedom and had ourselves a family night. We piled in the car and headed one town over to the lovely park on a lake. Our little town has a park but it is covered in graffiti and there is no telling what you will step on, or who you will come in contact with. My Son loves this park, it has a great playground and the lake is full of ducks and geese that are so much fun to feed. These are some of the pics from our Family Night.

One of my favorite pics from the night.


He decided he wanted to eat the bread instead of giving it to the ducks.

This can’t be good. That Goose was mean.


This where we have my son’s birthday parties. We just had one there this Saturday. He turned 2! I’ll post about that later.

We then went for pizza and pigged out. It was great.

Sean and Cowan

Oh my favorite picture of the two of them. The men I love.

It is DEAD

Our awning, our cowboy awning, the awning we bought each other for our anniversary, is dead. About a month ago a storm came through and blew it around. I had it anchored to our fence which kept it from blowing completely away. When the storm was over it looked like this.

Not too bad we could fix this, and we did. Please pay no attention to how bad my backyard looks. We have had  a lot of rain lately. Well, except where the pool had been laying (the big dead circle).
Early last week a strong line of storm came blowing through. And I mean blowing. I was home by myself so I couldn’t take down the awning. So I decided to lower it all the way to the ground and stake down. I was hoping the would work. The the storm hit and the wind hit. I knew it was strong winds when I heard it HIT the back side of my house. When the storm was half way through I went to check on the awning and it was blowing around getting the back of my house. I just prayed that it didn’t hit a window. When I eventually ventured outside this is what I found.

Oh how sad…. it is gone for good. No repairing it this time.
Good bye to our Cowboys awning. We had such a short time with you. Thank you for the shade you provided us during this blazing summer. You keep me and my son from being sunburned as we played in the pool beneath you. One day we will replace you, but it may take awhile. You were pretty expensive for us. Good bye friend.

Mad Scientist!

Muah Ha Ha Ha!
Not really. Just a Pre-school teacher trying to find fun things for the kids to make.
I made slime, or goo, or gak. Whatever you want to call it.
slime 4
And I made it purple.
You mix:
1/4 c water
1/2 tsp. of Borax

then seperate bowl
1/4 c water
1/4 c glue
then whatever food coloring you want.
then mix all together in bowl or baggie and you get slime. You need to kneed it for awhile to absorb the water. Then have fun.

Sorry for the lighting. Tropical Storm Hermine came through and the lighting in my laundry room was sorry. I hate using the flash. Have fun making your own slime.

Love This

I received a special gift recently. It is vintage and very colorful. I love it! In my family we eat a LOT of cereal. Every week or so we go to the store and pick out a cereal or two along with our cheerios. I’m tellin’ ya we love cereal. My “almost two” son really loves cereal. He could eat it all day long. He takes almost everywhere he goes. So, you can imagine how excited I was when this was given to me recently.

Someone special to us saw it and thought of our family, specifically my son. Isn’t it great? Look in the inside.

Please tell me you love this bowl as much as I do. I love fun and colorful things for my kitchen. Remember this….100_1659
I can’t help it.

I will definitely be trying to find more of these bowls, hopefully with different cereals.

Bordem has set in

When I get really bored I like to make things. Last week I got bored and decided to paint wood. It is not yet completed. I'll post pics when it is. Yesterday I got very bored. So I made a paper wreath.

I had all the paper in my craft cabinet so I started cutting and stapleing and this is what happened. I love Fall and I love glitter. So I combined the two.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. What are some of the things you like to do when you get bored?
