Homemade Clay

See if you can find: ladybug, turtle, snail, girl, snake, birds nest, fish.

We tried a homemade clay recipe we received from Ashley for this project. We used some old flour that was ready to be thrown out and mixed it with a little water and salt. Then turned it into works of art! Marissa went to town making her own little animals. Dani made a trampoline. Allee made a rainbow. Then we baked them in the oven so they would harden. A few days later we pulled out the paint and that's when their creations really came to life! They are surprisingly bright and pretty! Marissa even took a couple to school to give away to her teachers. It was a fun idea, Thanks Ashley!

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Lynn was cleaning out the garage this weekend and kept getting distacted. One minute he would be in the garage and the next he would be out front with the kids. Every time he found something fun to play with he was back out front with the kids. First it was a kite. They had it going pretty high, too! Next it was bubbles. Now do you think the garage is cleaned out yet? We'll have to try again this weekend. After all, I did hear Lynn say something about fixing the bike car.....

Easter Weekend

Kids are so much fun during the holidays! We enjoyed having the Easter Bunny come, painted eggs, and had an Easter egg hunt. I think our favorite part about Easter (and every holiday) is the chance we have to visit with our family. This year we were able to head down to Santaquin where we visited with Ashley and her boys Jared and Ashton. The kids had so much fun that they brought Jared home with us so we could have a sleepover! So we were able to spend Sunday with them as well when Ashley came to pick up Jared. We had so much fun we look forward to the next holiday so we can do it all again!
