Gizmo used to chase Cadette all over the yard, but I think she has come to accept Cadette as part of the family. ;)

Okay Mom, here you go. If you look on the book shelf behind Mario, he set up some of his John Deere toys.

A Very Busy Saturday

Created by Shawna

To end The Summer Reading Program at the Library, they had a picnic at Memory Park. The boys got 4 free books each, I won a cup from Studio 89 and we ate hot dogs, chips and drank soda provided by the Library.
There was also live entertainment! Before we were able to eat, everyone had to dance. Diego danced with Arianna Hoskins. After the park we went to the theater and saw UP. The boys really enjoyed it, but it was a bit sad. Then we went to Walmart and did some school shopping. Diego is going through a Spider Man thing right now so everything had to be Spider Man. Walmart didn't have any Spider Man back packs, but there were some smaller solid color ones for $5. The size is perfect for Diego and Kindergartners don't have much to put in them anyways. So, then I went on over to the fabrics and got 1/4 yard of some Spider Man fabric. Some fusible interfacing later and VOILA!! Diego has a one of a kind Spider Man Back Pack. I'm also going to put a pocket on the side for his water bottle.

No Blue Ribbon For This Pie

Well, maybe if there was an ugliest lumpiest pie category. Good thing it's looks didn't affect the way it tastes. :)

A Mime.........Kind Of

Created by Shawna

I would say it was more like interpretive dance and it's a good thing it didn't last the whole hour because the kids lost interest after about ten minutes. They did have fun making masks after the show.

Yummiest soup ever (tomato base with noodles, chicken and cilantro) with queso fresco (fesh cheese) quesadillas.
These are not brownies, they are dirty blondies. Which, by the way, I do not recommend google-ing for a recipe. Hee hee. I also put mini Reese's Pieces in them. Super yummy.

Bags, Bags and More Bags!!!

Created by Shawna

Above is a diaper bag I made (no I'm not pregnant, yet anyways).
And these are the Library bags I made for the boys. The pocket on the front is for their Library cards and has Velcro so they won't fall out. Fun, huh?

Happy 4th of July!!

Created by Shawna

This year the Town of Chino Valley had a party in the park for the fourth. They tried to make up for the fact that they didn't have fire works. It wasn't much of a party, pretty boring actually. But at least they did something for the few people who did go. The boys rode around in a barrel train and jumped in a jumping castle. Mario is going through a John Deere faze and was very excited to see some. As we were leaving he noticed a mug and calender set sitting on a table where they were have different games and asked the Town guys what it was for. They said that it was a prize for one of the games but since he was such a big John Deere fan and sang the John Deere song for them, he could have it.

The Magic Of Eddie Siller

Created by Shawna

Now this show was fun, for the boys anyways. I don't think the doves and rabbit that were part of the show enjoyed it much.

Our Annual Trip To The Pool

Created by Shawna

Although we did not go last year. And we of course we always end up going on a day when there is a slight breeze, just enough to to make Diego run out of the pool every ten minutes for his towel.
