Summer Update #2- Movie, Parade, and Rodeo!


We took the girls to go and see Rio in 3D at the movie theater. Rachel didn't quite have the attention span to make it through the movie, but Hannah loved it! She sat still and laughed and had a great time. Here they are modeling their glasses in the dark theater (not the best for phone pics).


 We also went to the Riverton Town Days Rodeo and I was so impressed with the girls. We got there early to make sure we got a good seat and they were able to pet some of the horses.

 We got some cotton candy (that they ate about three bites and were done with).
 But they made it through the whole rodeo with no whining, fits or asking to leave! The rodeo started at 8 which is their bedtime and didn't end until almost 11! We also did the Riverton Town Parade. We were lucky to get to have the Meyers in town with us! Here the kids are watching the parade.


Cole and Rachel were so cute together! :)

Crazy Busy Summer! :)

We have been having lots of fun marking things off our Summer Bucket List, but I will tell you, it makes for one tired momma! I can't believe it has been almost two months since I updated. Oh well, here goes! Lets start with the food stuff we have made:


We marked off the Watermelon Waffles and they tasted yummy!
 Mouth snack- Apple slices with peanut butter and marshmallows. Both girls ate two or three which really surprised me since they usually whine if I leave the peel on their apples.
 We made apple sandwiches- apple slices with peanut butter, marshmallows and chocolate chips.
Banana Ice Cream- made with frozen bananas and a small dash of milk. This is my new favorite thing to eat! I have been making smoothies with frozen bananas, blueberries and strawberries only. Its way better than adding yogurt, ice and other stuff! :)
The kids and I made what were supposed to be homemade pop tarts, but I didn't cut the crust small enough so it ended up being more like pie pockets instead.

We still have some things to mark off our list, but we are making some good progress and having fun while doing it!
