into August we go!!!


no lie....this "HARDEST decision EV-AH" took her AT LEAST 30 minutes, till after 10 pm...at Walmart!!! SOOOOO funny, my life is!!!. Good thing we had the WHOLE SCHOOL SUPPLY SECTION to ourselves, so she could lay out ALL THE OPTIONS, and make SURE that things went together (???) .... what HARD decisions she had to make!!!!
gotta love my Livie


Here is some of what she ended up with! :)

She also needs a drawstring backpack / cinch bag.  So, we found a clearance XXL womens skirt at Walmart, and made her one!  The tutorial I read said she made it in 30 minutes.  It took me off and on for 2 days, with lots of mistakes! :)



Found this beauty at Goodwill....going to be a shelf for Mr Finn's room!!!!


Also, when Nana Dianne and Bapa Craig were here, they went past a house that was putting in new kitchen cupboards, and these were out for free....so, here is what I did with them!  One is going into our laundry room (hopefully) and maybe one in the garage :)


While up at Nana Judy and Bapa Ron's house, Finn got this Dino egg at Storybook Land!  When we got home, into the water he went!  He spent 3-4 days coming out of his shell, and then spent another couple of days growing after that!  It was a cute and fun thing for the kids to do!

These kiddos have been hanging out ALL summer together.....And, yes, Finn doesn't wear clothes much.  oh well :)

We found a rock by a cute little tree in town!  We then took it and re-hid it in the front of Walmart!

The ice cream truck came again!  This was the second time this summer, and it was soooooo much fun to hear it coming, and then wait for it, get yummy treats, and enjoy!!!

Finn chose a power puff girl...not sure why...
(also, he and Liv had a little crash while scooter-ing the other day, and he got an owie) 




  
This is one of his silly looks these days....so funny!


The end of his ice cream ended up on our driveway!


Close up of his owie right after it happened, with some goo on it!

and, because he didn't pick it AT ALL, it healed up within a week!  whoo hoo!!!!!

Liv wanted to take a picture of her and Winnie for a bookmark....and mr pants-less boy wanted to be in it too!!!


I feel like I've been super busy with projects lately, but it's been fun!  Just finished this one up today, but can't show because it's a gift!  Pieces of laminate flooring, cut up, and put on an old kitchen cupboard door....



I will have to update what it ended up looking like once the gift is given!!! :)

Trip to Aberdeen

We left Thursday for our journey up to Nana and Bapa's house!!!

Friday afternoon, we went over and saw our good friends!!!

Finn LOVES baby Luke!


Aleeyah and Evie



Love this family, and wish they lived in OUR town!!


Friday night was "family picture night"!



























This time, Nana Dianna and Bapa Craig came over to Nana Judy and Bapa Ron's house!  What a looooooong trip for them, but we all had tons of fun!!!

Saturday we headed to Storybook Land!  It was HOT HOT HOT!!!!







Finn learned about the 3 little pigs this year, and so he was pretty excited to see them!!!



The Land of Oz is always a treat!




















Did I say it was HOT?  It was.....really hot.

Finn wanted to go on the carousel, and he wanted an animal that didn't go "up and down" :)  funny boy!









We swam at least once every day while we were there!  Daddy even went in once!  That NEVER NEVER NEVER happens!!!!  It was just so darn hot!



Lots of times with cousins!


We were celebrating Nana Judy and Bapa Ron's 46th wedding anniversary, so Nana Dianne bought them a fun cake!




After church on Sunday, we went out for lunch!  YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Followed by hours of more swimming!  These 2 bapas hung out together on this side of the pool!


Mr Finn had quite the fun time, and grew more and more comfortable jumping in!


SOOOOO MANY COUSINS!!!!!!!!!!!!


We went over and rode the go cards before bed, and were surrounded by Huderites and "bye bye bye" on the loudspeakers...joy....


We also got to do the bungee jump thing!  Finn and Liv had a great time!



We woke up bright and early on Monday morning, and headed home!!!  Such a fun weekend!!!
