Summer Life Lately

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Our July has been packed full of fun activities! 

On the 5th the girls had their pictures taken. Our theme was Art! I can't wait to see all the pictures!  

Whenever I try to schedule pictures Claire gets a stye and this photo session was no exception. She woke up with a stye that morning and it has gotten progressively worse ever since... Poor girl! 

Also on the 5th we instituted our first annual 5th of July party! It was super relaxed and we ate 4th of July leftovers, lit leftover fireworks, and hung out by the campfire. It was a super fun time with friends that we didn't get to spend the 4th of July with! 

Amanda and I did some of the dirty work so that we could make Campfire Eclairs! 

Don't let these pictures of me fool you, Brian made it possible for us to have roasting sticks! I would have died VERY quickly in pioneering days. 

 Awesome friends...

Campfire Eclairs! 

 Our summer schedule has been pretty crazy so we haven't been doing too many structured crafts lately. April gave us some giraffe cut outs she had leftover and I attached contact paper to one side and then let them stick tissue paper to the contact paper. 

I love how they look with the light shining through them in the window! 

Gymnastics is still going great! Claire is doing especially well! 

Kenley is doing great too! 

I always over buy s'mores stuff! I love it all in this big glass jar! If I had the space for it I think I would store most things in giant jars! 


Tomato stealer! Brian's garden is growing so well! He is doing wood chip gardening and we are absolutely loving it! 

This candle smells so yummy! Once Craft Mart emails me another coupon I am going back for it! 

Washi tape is 40% off at Michaels right now! Some of it is on clearance too! 

 Hey! There is a boy in my daughters bed! 

Great friends! 

We are planning a week long camping trip later in the summer, so we are taking a few overnight camp trips to get them used to it! This camping trip lasted 11 hours :) we got there at 8:30pm and were packed up and gone by 7:30am! 

Happy Summer!
