picture taken with my phone---Grayson deleted it!
Tonight I got away for a Pinterest party with some girlfriends. We each brought a snack from a recipe we found on Pinterest and then brought supplies to make a craft or project that we had found on Pinterest. Apparently I was a bit ambitious with the necklace I intended to make. It's going to take a bit longer than I thought.
Tonight we went to Theatre in the Park with a big group of friends. It was Nana and Granddad's first time to go. The show completely captured Grayson and Neylan's attention. We saw a double feature of the Jungle Book and Sleeping Beauty.
At intermission the kids got a snack necklace (one of my recent Pinterest finds). They devoured them pretty quickly!
I bought a Toy Story gummy making kit a while back with intentions of making these for their birthday party. Well, it's a month later and they are still asking to make them. They were actually really easy to do. I should have done this a long time ago!
the finished product- Buzz, Woody, Ham, and the alien
The boys went to spend the evening with friends while Adam and I had dinner with his coworkers. When we dropped them off, the mom wasn't home. But she said the minute she walked in, this funny series began. They ran up the stairs and ran right past her and plopped down at the table and said they were ready to eat!
So she had them come wash their hands
and then Neylan washed dishes, hoping it would hurry her along
FINALLY! Let the feeding frenzy begin!
A fun-filled Fourth
We started our day at the Village Fest. This was our first year to go and it was fantastic. There were so many great activities for the kids to participate in and the boys had a great time. We will definitely go back next year.
They got to practice shooting a fire hose at a wheel
There was a small petting zoo with very unique animals, like a baby zebra, kangaroo, pig, and a camel.
There was also a bike rodeo, where we were able to have their helmets fitted correctly and then allow them to practice some bike safety skills
This was followed by the bike parade. Grayson did really well riding the short distance.
Neylan, on the other hand, participated like this!
We spent the evening with friends
No Fourth of July would be complete without fireworks. The boys got to stay up late to watch them and loved it!
I just realized that I forgot to post these pictures a few days ago, but wanted to show off the finished product. We are so pleased with how well the bathroom cabinets turned out. They look completely different and new now. I would highly recommend using Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations kit. It was simple and didn't take too long to complete. Now, if I can find some motivation to tackle the kitchen, it will get a facelift as well.
Because I'm not the type that ever procrastinates, Grayson received a fun package in the mail today. His very own scrapbook of his first 6 months! It's only 2.5 years late! I've determined that I will never get 2 traditional scrapbooks done for him and I (becuase I've also decided that if I'm going to put so much work into it then I want to keep it), so I've decided to start a digital album for each year for him to take with him when he grows up. He was very excited to see his book and really enjoyed looking through it.
Neylan was also interested for a few minutes, and then jumped off the chair. He must have realized he wasn't in any of the pictures.
So, how long will it take me to finish his first full year??! Maybe it will be done before he goes to kindergarten!
