S, Nana, and her newest cousin
One of S's aunts brought over some fun things for her a few weeks ago to help her celebrate her forever day. She brought crayons, coloring books, bubbles, and stickers. Stickers are one of her favorite things. She was enjoying them while I was doing the dishes one day, and came to me looking like this.
"Look mom! Stickers! Lots of 'em!"
Our cousins left the day before pioneer day. Their mom and I decided to do pioneer activities the day before they left to celebrate the pioneers coming into the Salt Lake Valley (July 24, 1847). We looked through books to get ideas of the different type of games the pioneers played that the kids would have fun with.
wheel roll (or in our case hoola hoop)
ice blocking (a bit of a stretch, but super fun!)
homemade ice cream
everyone wanted in on it :)
snow cones...just because.
It was a crazy busy week. We love it when they come to visit and get to spend so much time with them. S would ask to go to Nana's house each morning (since that's where the cousins were staying).
We have wanted to overhaul our laundry room almost since we moved in. The builder put the water and vent in the wrong spots, and the least effective way to use up the space that we have in that room. So, we spent Friday and Saturday moving power, laundry vent, and adding water since we are adding a sink in there :) It took a lot more time than we had anticipated, and we aren't finished yet, but we are getting there. We are hoping to have laundry painted and hooked back up by Wednesday...at the latest.
Putting the vent in was the worst part of the project. It seriously took us hours. We had to reach through that tiny hole and hook the hose to the vent going outside.
