Slime

Slime is coming around our house again. This summer alone, I wish I had invented Elmer's Glue. Wow !!!

This time she's making the Borax version but seems like there are a million of new recipes this year.

The contact solution version is a good one too.  And definitely the shaving cream one.

I think all versions are fun. This one isn't sticky, doesn't leave a film on your hands and was cheap and easy.

She wasn't quite done with the green yet but I snagged the photo before she was ready. It did turn out smooth like the others.

She has now moved on to creating her own slime. She doesn't measure anything, so it's nothing I can post. But she's gotten quite good at it. The little chemist.



What version of slime do you make?

Do your kids even like slime?

Please share any good recipe you have.

Fun Days - Animals - Ice - Lotsa Pics

That time of summer again when all the small towns have their Fun Days. Always such a good time for all the kids. 

This face paint lady is phenomenal. She does an amazing job. And the make up she uses does not sweat off. She goes from this green and yellow smudge.

To an amazing Dino-Eye.

This kid just loves these petting zoo's. Anyone needs a farm hand to help with your animals, this is your girl.

Deep conversation. Or nostril inspection.

She loved the pot belly pigs and there constantly twirling tails.

And the games where we bring home 5 million prizes from.

Fun Summer Drinks

My neighbor made the cutest neatest drinks ever !!

I think this first one without the alcohol would make a really cute ice cream float for kids too. 

drinks (1)

The creativeness of making these is not my talent.

drinks (2)

But drinking them is !!!  They were all very good.

drinks (3)


I almost felt bad on this last strawberry one. I'm sure it took much more effort to make it, than it did for me to suck it down. 

Have a great day !


Have any fun summer drink ideas?

How far did you run today?

Favorite summer BBQ food?





Landscaping

After living in this house for a year, we decided maybe we should finally do some landscaping. Trenching 12x12x2 brick in for edging was the worst part of it.

Ashlyn was able to sling around a few 30 lb bags of mulch.

Started with a few Lilies. Still waiting on a few more plants to go in back.

landscape (2)

We need things easy and maintenance free. We don't like spending time on it and we are not that good at it either. Plants are so needy, always wanting water.

landscape (3)

I just LOVE these. My absolute favorite.

landscape (4)

Apparently they are the bunnies favorite too !!!!!!!!!!   They lasted a 2 whole days.

landscape (5)


Do you love landscaping or just enough to get by like me?

Do you have to have everything in chicken wire to prevent rabbits from munching on it?
