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.
Oh my favorite picture of the two of them. The men I love.
My newly turned 2 year old.

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.

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.
And I made it purple.
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.

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….
I can’t help it.
I will definitely be trying to find more of these bowls, hopefully with different cereals.
