We went bowling today and had so much fun! I cant wait to do it again and have everyone with us. Reese and Parker loved it. I love that the bowling alley gives kids 2 free games a day so all we had to do was pay for the shoes for them. My mom also had her best score ever!! look at that form !

Water Bombs

I made some sponge water bombs for the kids today and I have to say it was a "hit". I expect A LOT of use for them this year since it is so HOT! We are also planning on making a kid car wash sometime this week. I got the idea HERE. NOTE: I used dental floss because the fishing line kept slipping in my hands and they actually came apart when we played with them. The dental floss works great and is already handy at the house. To make the smaller ones I cut the sponges "hot dog" instead of "hamburger". You can experiment on our sizes. My mom says the bigger ones are easier to catch but I think the little ones are so cute :)

No Bummer Summer

We are taking a cue from Judy Moody and having a No Bummer Summer. I have made a poster board sized calendar and a page of ideas for things for us to do this summer. Last week we already went to the zoo (for free!! with the libraries zoo pass) and this week has been filled with swim lessons and water balloons. MANY fun ideas and pictures to come!!
