I was deleting photos from my phone this morning. Really I was putting off what I need to finish for girls camp next week. There where a few photos I had forgotten to do anything with. Blake had his final baseball game the night before we left for Idaho. He had a good time, even tho it wasn't what he had hoped for. Just not enough people signed up in this area. The coach did the best she could with small numbers. I think he still wants to play next year.
Last week Blake had his cousin Ashton come for a few day. They had a great time together. I guess it shows where my priorities are. I took no pictures of the 3 days they where swimming, doing archery, and playing around. But took lots of the dinner we had Sunday when Jason and Lalainia came to pick him up. :)
Thought these where cute, so I whipped some up Sunday morning.
I did a lemonade bar. I had regular and mint lemonade. Then raspberries, peaches, and strawberries to go in. Also some Sprite. I liked it, thought it was a fun way to make your own drink.
Tacos with hard and soft shells with many topping options.
Also watermelon, a summer must have.
I had seen this 4 layer German Chocolate Cake on Pinterest. It looked so gooey and delicious. But like most times when I am in a hurry the cake didn't quite work out. It was really good, but to soft to cut into layers. So it ended up being just two. So sad.
We did doctor and dentist yesterday. It took all day. We packed a lunch then stopped to brush our teeth on the side of the road. Blake is the only one that would let me take a picture of him. No cavities for any of us again this year. Yipee!! At the doctor Blake got some warts burned. He was very brave. Dr. said Leah has a loose knee cap. Very common in young girls and especially tall girls. His prescription for her is lots of biking and swimming to strengthen the muscle that holds it in place. Really we thought she was just being wimpy the last 6 months. Guess I should have listened. And wrapping it is the worst thing we could do for it. Whoops. I was teasing her that she could now say to Dave that she could not do any work because the doctor told her to go swimming.
Summer had been going good. Way, way to hot, but good. Dave has madly been trying to get electrical in. I have been helping some with that and a tiny bit with the haying. So fun to get out on a tractor again. I really do enjoy it. So pretty and peaceful. We have had the heating guys working all week and plumber said he is starting Monday. Fingers crossed again. The kids have been swimming almost everyday. I am totally loving this little pool and having a seasons pass.
Some banners I made for Father's Day out of paint samples.
I loved how they turned out.
Cora always cuts out her favorite doodles from the year before she throws away her papers from school. She has quite the collection of neat ones.
Coconut Limeade. Sooo good.
One day I was frustrated with things the kids where leaving out. I told Blake that if it was not all cleaned up when I got home I was throwing everything in the garbage. Well I should have checked what was actually out before I left. All is was was garbage. So he left it. Smart kid. Dumb mom moment. I made him pick it up anyways.
