Happy Fourth of July friends! We have spent most of our morning and a good part of the afternoon outside. Our weather is welcoming in July with slightly cooler and a lot less humid temperatures. It’s random and rare, but we love it! The boys have ran through the sprinklers, ate popsicles, and we did two quick activities:
J loves painting, so I got out red, white, and blue paint and let them go to town making an abstract painting:
And then I pulled out my iron on bead set (and I happened to have two stars!) and we made this:
I have had these bead sets since the early nineties, I never thought holding on to them would come in handy, but they did! You can also find larger bead sets at craft stores. If you have a little more time you should try this flag canvas. My sister told me about it and it is a really sweet idea.
And of course, I have a few more of my favorites from the week:
Our new favorite granola bars.
This stunt man shirt would fit J to a tee. HA!
A most unique wedding attire and look.
Five ideas to deal with sibling rivalry. I love all of these, but my favorite is to treat siblings like a team.
A campfire and s’mores pudding shots. Sounds like my type of camping.
Love this DIY floating frame idea for a certain Legend of Zelda map we found in B’s childhood tub o’ stuff.
Enjoy the simple things in life….like lots of cute cushion covers that are washable.
A blue forest that would probably be the most epic trail walk, ever.
A patterned picnic blanket idea, that I’m thinking about doing on a linen throw…I’ll let you know if I take it on, and how it turns out!
A gorgeous lace lined tunic that will take you from summer into fall.
Have a wonderful weekend!
