Fishin' Buddies

The other day I came home from the store and found Tony and Owen sitting on the pontoon boat. Tony was getting ready for a fishing trip with his brother and wanted to make sure everything was set to go so he set the boat up in the living room. Owen seems to have a liking for fishing already. Tony cannot wait!

Water Fun and a "Boyfriend"



Yesterday the girls and some of their friends wanted to play some water games. I filled up some water balloons and pulled out the ol' slip n' slide. Kaylan had to get her friend Colter who lives just a couple of houses down from us. They had a great time. They are in the same class at church and are always teasing each other. It's so funny to watch them. Later on that day I asked Kaylan if Colter was her boyfriend and her response was,
"Yeah....Cuz he's cute for a boyfriend. And he's really nice mama."

It was so matter of fact. I thought it was pretty dang cute. Oh boy, what am I in for? I do agree with her though......he is very cute.

*He was also the only boy there but he couldn't have cared less. It was too funny.

Yum Yum Lemonade

Kenslee has been bugging me about having a lemonade stand. We don't live on a corner so we don't get a lot of traffic. Well, she didn't give up so I finally let her and her friends have one. Oh, and Kaylan had to join in of course. They did pretty well. When it was all said and done they each made $1.50 each. They were pretty happy with that.

First Attempt.......



This is my first attempt at doing a fondant cake. I'm really wanting to learn how to decorate cakes. Mmmmm, yeah....it's not so pretty. Kenslee is wanting a flower and polka dot fondant cake for her birthday in October. I figured I needed to do a practice cake before then. I think I better do another practice cake. Shoot. Yeah, and it is a little lop sided, er, I meant to do that.

Swimming Lessons





This year the girls had swimming lessons. This is Kenslee's second year and Kaylan's first. They both had so much fun and I'm so proud of them.

Home Grown


I am not known for my green thumb. In fact, pretty much everything that I have planted dies. But I am so excited that my little garden is doing so well! I grew some Romaine Lettuce and it has done awesome and it tastes oh, so yummy.

Bandana Quilt



I have a bunch of projects up my sleeve lately and one of them has been this bandana quilt. I wanted something to sit on the lawn with because I hate using my nice blankets for outside. So I went on over to my favorite store, Hobby Lobby, and bought 20 bandanas and pieced them together to form this quilt. The back of the quilt is just a flat sheet. Super easy and we use it all the time!

Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy has been pretty busy at our house the past three weeks. Kenslee has lost one tooth a week! She's so proud that she has $3. She looks like a pretty cute Jack-O-Lantern.

4th of July Pics

This year for the 4th of July we went up to Logan to watch the Cache Valley Cruise In Parade. We have gone the past few years and the kids love it! Earlier in the day I decided to take the kids' pictures up the canyon. They did pretty well.....nothing a little bribery with smarties can't fix! Owen, however, didn't cooperate so much. Unfortunately, he is still too little for bribery. Kaylan's expression on the last picture told me we were DONE! At least I got a few right?
