I really like to use my weekends to do work outside, but this morning we had a thunderstorm that lasted for a while. It has been a while since we've had rain and we REALLY needed it, so I won't complain :). So it was a morning to do some things inside. I had an order for a birthday banner, so I used the rainy weather as a time to get that done.
I love my Cricut!
I love how it turned out!
I really enjoy using my Cricut and these banners are a neat decoration for birthday parties. I want to make up some and put them on Etsy too
The boys got a slip n' slide for their birthday party (what a good idea for summer birthday), so we got it out this weekend. It was great weather to play in the water as hot as it was. We tried to tell the boys how to do it but they couldn't quite figure it out. They made up their own way....whatever works! They had a blast!!
As I look at pictures I can see we really needed to mow also, glad we got that taken care of!
This weekend I finally got to making my Strawberry Freezer Jam! Ive saved strawberries in the freezer until I had a chance to make the jam. Glad I got it done! I still have a little bit more to do. I usually had done it with my mom in past years, but this year I did it by myself. I think it turned out well! Now ready for toast and jam or pb&j!!
This weekend was a nice 3 day weekend because of the 4th of July. I'm so happy it fell on a Monday to give us a 3 day weekend!! Ty's birthday was on Sunday. We already had joint birthday parties for the boys last month but we wanted to do something fun for his actual birthday. We will have ice cream cake next weekend with grandmas and grandpas. We decided to stay close and go to Fair Oaks Dairy Farm. Scott and I had been several times ever since it had first opened. We've taken the boys to eat there many times also, but we've never done the full blow experience. So this time we did the adventure center, the farm tour and all the activities that you can do. Scott and I have seen calves being born several times as long as we can remember, but we took the boys to see it too. Lane was really interested in it! Below are some pictures from our day!
