Colorado Tea Party

Many years ago, the girls started inviting relatives over for a tea party when we were in Colorado.  They wanted a chance to have fun while getting to know everyone better.  We were to dress up and wear hats.

When they were younger, they often found “dress up” clothes and shoes in the closets, but now Andrea and Audrey have outgrown most of them.  However, the hats are becoming a lot more fun.

The boys enjoy themselves also.  They go out with the uncles and explore or listen to stories the uncles share while sampling the treats the girls made.

“Mommy Camp” Day Five and Six

We got to play for the last days of Mommy camp, but we also worked on getting ready for the kids to come home. Here is Megan’s version of her last few days.

I slept in a long time! I ate breakfast and then we played in the pool.

We worked on cleaning the house.  Then we ate lunch. Momma made us a special blueberry Sunday for snack.

Then I learned how to make pickles!  They are easy. All you have to do if boil a brine and then put cucumbers in a jar with dill and garlic.  Then you add the brine! Then you put the lid on.  We made five jars.

We had curly fries for dinner.

Then we got some glow sticks and made bunny ears with them. We catched lightening bugs. Then we slept out in the tent.We talked to Daddy on the phone. Momma read me a book before I fell asleep.  It started storming. I slept most of the storm.  Then we went into Momma’s room and slept.

I slept very long until Momma woke me up on Saturday. We did some shopping and got blueberries. Then we played Clue and played outside. Then the kids came home!  Hooray!  I made them grilled cheese sandwiches because they were hungry from their drive home from camp.

 

“Mommy Camp” Day Three

Megan wanted to share what she did for “Mommy Camp” again.

We were very busy on Wednesday. We played with Legos and took pictures of them doing silly things. I hope to show those pictures to you later.

We played outside a lot. We made pictures with glitter and played outside some more.

When Mark got home we went to the library and then to Meijers –BORING– and got home just in time to go to work!

After dinner, Mark and I did an experiment. He made a mobius strip out of button candy. He asked how we should eat it. We started eating the middle section and it kept going around! It surprised me. It was fun.

Then Mark painted a picture with me before bed.  We were so busy we only read at bedtime!
