Ooof, it was a hot one today (and yes, you are only allowed to say ooof if you can claim some scandinavian heritage!)
The kids and I lubed up on sunblock and filled up two kiddie pools and proceeded to get the summer started!
In the back of my mind, I had all of these ideas of things I wanted to do.
The ideas came from pinterest of course!
I can't get enough of that site lately!
Here, in no certain order, are the pinterest inspired projects and games we tackled!
This game was a ton of fun for the kids (please ignore our gross rusty water...there are drawbacks to living in the country!). I blew up some balloons and put them in our kiddie pool (complete with a 'waterslide...we go all out around here ;) !!). The kids had to try and pop them without using their hands. So FUN!
And yes, my daughter is wearing plaid with paisley prints...it's how she rolls! I learned long ago to pick my battles and that is not one of them!
We also did our own 4th of July tshirts...it was a fun project but we were all very hot and tired at this point! It wasn't 10 minutes after this photo was shot and the little guy was asleep!
I'll have the 'after' photos on the 4th!
We also made some yummy fruit kabobs for a cool snack late in the afternoon.
They had a blast making patterns and picking out the fruits they wanted to use. I smiled b/c they were LOVING the FRUIT! Madi loves her some kiwi..you couldn't tell could you?
And last but certainly not least we painted a TON of pictures to hang up. Tanner, my school boy, created this...I hope he always feels this way!
