Justin found these glasses for Evelyn to put on while shopping. She looked so funny in them, but loved wearing them!I tried my hand at this cupcake idea i saw somewhere. They are dum dum suckers dipped in water and then sprinkled with the little ball sprinkles. They turned out so cute! We took these to the neighbors to thank them for watching Evelyn last week for me.

I decided that I don't do too many masculine cards. This year, I made a slew of these cards for father's day (yes, only 3 father's to give to, but hopefully the others will sell in the future)
I would put the gift for Justin on here, but the blog is the opening page when we open the internet, so he would see it. I'll have to wait until AFTER he gets it on Sunday.
Evelyn has decided that she loves corn on the cob! So I decided to have her help me shuck it (my least favorite part). She did a great job.
Next month at girls camp, we have a scripture study time each day. We study the scriptures as a group and then this year we are associating a craft (or handout) each day. The 2nd day we are going to read about the first Vision (Joseph Smith) and then talk about how prayer can change our lives too. (our theme is Changed...For Good). So, we came up with the idea to embroider pillow cases. I came home on Sunday, and found some fabric that was big enough, made the pillow case and then during the next couple of days, stitched theis phrase. I think the girls will have a great time working on this! They can do it anytime and just sit and chat. .

It was finally warm enough to pull out the water slide. Justin's brother was in town all last week, and the cousins had a lot of fun getting together to play. Evie didn't ever slide on the slip'nslide, but she did go by the water spraying out and then dipped her toes in this little pool. Her cousins were so cute with her! She had a great time!
We hiked Ensign Peak with the combined YM/YW last Wednesday. It was a perfect evening because the wind kept us cool and the sun wasn't shining on us for the hike. We returned to the bottom right as the rain came down!Our awesome YM/YW!

We played with cousins all day today! We went to the church History museum where they have an I am a Child of God exhibit, with hands-on activities for the kids. They had a great time!
We had so much fun today playing in the water fountains at the Gateway! Evelyn was a little shy about the water, but a couple times she wandered through. She just looked so stinkin' cute in her swimsuit, I couldn't resist the shots...
After going to the Aquarium in Salt Lake, we came back to our house for dinner. The kids were eating root beer floats outside! Yes, it was even a little chilly after the thunderstorms and so some of them had jackets on!

Evie and me checking out the jars boiling in the water. "hot, hot hot!" she said!
We did another house party. This time is was for Ball canning things. We made mint jelly and it finally set up, so I can wait to try it! It was a fun night.
