Bubble Time

Girls camp is coming up. It's just a few days away, and I am in deep preparation mode. So today I made our ward gift. Apparently up at camp, we prepare and give a gift to another ward, so I chose bubbles.

I got the cute bubble sign from Pinterest, and found this cute crate at Walmart, for some cheap monies. I really dig it, and I hope this new ward does also!

A Day at the Park

Today, we took the kiddos to the park. Gecko had the time of his life, swinging away.

It was super hot, of course, so we ended the day with some popsicles and they had a great time. But come on with this weather, it's so hot all the time! I will never be used to it. At least they had fun, that's all that matters I think.

Skirt Day

Today when I was getting ready for church, my nephew wanted to wear one of my skirts. I gave him one and then we clipped it in the back to make it fit. He was so cute and he wore it for a really long time.

Darth and Gecko

With them being here, these jokers are just so fabulous and we are having a great time.

 I really enjoy styling his hair, makes him look so dapper.
 Just a casual fella, casually eating his breakfast.
What a cool dude.

Independence Day 2017

Happy Independence Day! I celebrated first off with the customary 10K in Provo
After a day of chilling with the little tykes and enjoying the sun, we had a delicious BBQ, and I made a relish dessert to celebrate America.

(sorry for the sideways pic, but oh well). Darth met my niece (on the other side of the family) E-Money and they were instant friends,

But believe me when I say, these hams were just hamming it up for the camera, they always made sure someone was looking when they did something sweet. We had a good night and nobody caught on fire from the fireworks, so I consider the whole day a success. This is how we watched most of the fireworks:

The sentence on the pic is just an inside joke between sisters in law, don't worry about it haha. I hope you guys had a great day also!

The Kiddos Have Arrived

Well, friends, there are tiny children in my house now. My sister and her kiddos have arrived, they'll be here for the entire month of July. Her husband (who is in the Army) is on assignment out of the country, so they're here. I'm excited for all the stuff we are going to get into this month, and now, here are some pics of the jokers to celebrate.

This girl is on fiiii-iiiiire!

Happy Canada Day, everyone! To celebrate, we left Boise this morning, and rushed home to have a fireworks extravaganza with our family and friends. We had gotten a bunch of fireworks in Idaho, arials, fountains, basically everything. So when we got home, we rushed to get ready, and then the night was ready to start. We were about an hour in, and then tragedy struck. My SIL had lit an arial firework, and we all stood back to watch. After a few went up in the air, the firework tipped over, and started to shoot into yards. One went off near us and we started to panic, and then one went off right in our group. As we learned a bit later, it hit the ground near me, and then went off into me. So I quickly run into the house, and look down. I AM ON FIRE. I AM PHYSICALLY ON FIRE. So I quickly patted myself off (yeah, turns out that worked) and we surveyed the damage.

The outside is fine, luckily none of the other fireworks went off when a firework went off in the garage. My 3 year old niece had a small welt on her face, one hit her. I had a burn on my neck, from the where the firework bounced off my body and hit my neck. But my clothes were burned through. It went through my shirt, my camisole, and my jeans, and stopped right there. Let's see the damage.

So there we are. After this encounter, we were all pretty cautious around the fireworks. We lit a few more, but the thrill was gone, so we packed it up and called the night. I don't know how Independence Day is going to go, but hey, we're going to see how it is, and hopefully, nobody will catch on fire.
