The weekend

So far this summer has been so much fun. We always have something fun going on. Thursday I took the kids to the dentist, then the dollar store and then swimming at our neighborhood pool. Kaylee said it was the best day ever! Wow. Then Friday we went to the Children's Discovery Museum. Very fun. We love the dark room where you pose against the phosphorous background and then a light flashes and it leaves your shadow.
Saturday Kaylee had her dance recital. She was very cute and did well.
Then we went to the library together to pick out some movies and made one of my favorites: homemade pizzas.

We went camping!

This weekend we went to Mt. Charleston. We loved being in the cool air. The kids did great sleeping in the tent. Lincoln and Kaylee loved gathering sticks to keep the campfire burning and Lincoln was mad in this picture because he didn't want to go and we couldn't get him to smile.

The foil dinners and peach cobbler turned out amazing.

Chinese Day

Since I found a recipe for homemade fortune cookies it inspired our Chinese themed day. I wanted to do a lot more teaching about the country than I did- but we did make Chinese lanterns (on the table) and Sweet and Sour Chicken. This is just funny of Dallin.

Fun stuff

Last Friday night we had a little celebration for the kids because school was out. It's always fun to decorate and party it up. I got a book at the library of fun summer activities and am determined and excited to do them! Today was face painting. For each color I wanted I mixed 1 tps cornstarch, 1/2 tsp cold cream, 1/2 tsp water and a drop of food coloring. I used a little muffin tin. The kids loved painting my face and it wipes right off.
