This week I took the kids to the river to play. We haven't been there yet this summer. The kids LOVE playing there. They get to play in the sand and they play in a little stream that runs by the river. It is great. The bad part is there are mosquitoes and the sand makes for a ton of clean up. I had to vacuum out my car forever after that. It was fun though and I will have to take them again soon.
On Wednesday I made tin foil dinners and we went as a family and had a picnic in the park and Scott floated the irrigation ditch with the kids. That was a good time as well. On Thursday I caravan-ed with a friend on her Boise parks quest. She and her kids are trying to visit as many Boise/Meridian parks as they can (there's at least 50 in Boise alone). We hit two parks in Meridian. The kids had fun. We were going to join them on Friday as well but I had too much stuff at home to do that day.
On Thursday I found a dresser at the DI that I want to upcycle and use as an entertainment center. I started that project yesterday. It is going to be a TON of work. I hope it works out! Fingers crossed.
On Friday night we had our friends the McFarlands over for dinner. I'm so sad they actually moved to Twin that night. They were in the middle of packing and came over for a bite to eat and then continued to pack and move that night. We will miss them!
Saturday I spent the day researching painting furniture, buying supplies, sanding and painting the first coat of primer. Once again fingers crossed!
I had to sub to the music leader in primary today and as soon as church got out Corbin said, "mom you know what's annoying about you, you didn't sing Follow the Prophet." Ha. (That's his favorite).
me: "babies eat everything." Corbin: "ya even kids."
Gabby: "He said, get away you dog!" He hates dogs just like you." For record I don't hate dogs (except for mean dogs that chase you when you are running) I just don't want to touch them or smell them or be around them. Ha.
Piper: "Don't worry Gabby, I will save you!"
|He is so lucky to have a sister to dress him up.|
|This is so great and fun for the kids and the water was so warm. The raging river is far enough away the kids don't even get near it. Such a great kid spot.|
|Crawling babies in the sand...not my favorite! But look at that face!|
|The kids were having a fort, snack party before church today.|
