Maddy has such beautiful long hair. I've had it trimmed at least 3 times, maybe 4, an inch or two every time. But it is SO.LONG. When she goes potty if falls in the toilet (think public restroom...want to puke yet? Eh...me too!). It was time to get it cut short. Looking back, I wish I would have only done 4 or 5 inches, but I went for 8-9 inches! :-0 It is SO.MUCH. easier to take care of.
A few weekends ago was free camping (not sure if it was an Oregon deal or all over). We took off to a campground about 20 min. from our house. It was a very nice campground and I am sure we will return. We were right up the canyon from this lake. The kids had a blast playing with the other kids we went camping with. LOVE the surrounding here. I spent many a days of my childhood summer here.
This was my kids first time buying ice cream from an ice cream truck. They thought it was pretty darn cool and spotted it long before it made the stop in front of our camp.
Kids Bowl Free? A very neat program I signed the kids up for. They get to bowl 2 games free per day through the summer. For $24.95 I am able to add up to four adults (sitters, grandparents,etc) to be able to bowl with the kiddos. The kids had a blast and are ready to go back.
This is what ended up happening to it....
The picture above still cracks me up. They were pretty big plans and there are more still to pull!
This past Sunday we went up to my parents for lunch. My nephew and niece were there and they had a blast playing in the pool. My brother got a good ole water fight going and it was so much fun to hear the kids scream in delight!
And if you don't let her into Peyton's room when it is bedtime, she attacks the door til you do. She LOVES snuggling with Peyton at night.
Chris took off for a guys weekend this past weekend and I knew I needed to fill the days with activities to keep my sanity. A local store had a 'vendor' event where many reps from numerous different companies set up booths. There was a face painting book and both kids chose out what they wanted.
Today, we took a little drive back to Prineville to visit Peyton's school. He was rushed by classmates and friends which just made my heart melt. When some left more heard he was at recess and came a running.
Peyton's best friend is Thomas. I was able to finally get a photo of the two together. Thomas is one incredibly sweet boy and it broke both Peyton's and my hear to have to move after finding such a good little friend!
Peyton's teacher is retiring this year. She is planning on having a huge garage sale this year to sell many years of accumulation of teacher supplies. I was able to snag a few scores like this bucket of pretend change. I think we spent at least 2 hours this afternoon playing with it!
We also scored some brand new costumes. Maddy's is pretty sad that her Super Woman cape didn't make her fly. She tested it by jumping off her bed. Peyton is a ... gremlin? of some sort. They both had their costumes on within minutes and only took them off when I promised they could put them back on in the morning.
Miss Jenabelle...well...she found the toilet paper roll in the guest bathroom and decided to bring a chunk of it out to the living room to play with. It is a good thing she is cute...cause gosh dang, she is a LOT of work!
