eat it all

we had a full weekend...

camping in the back yard, protected by our fierce guard dog, belle (a.k.a. "jelly belly").

hanging out with cousins, luke  and nicolas, visiting from hawaii.
which included an ice cream outing, where we received a stern warning from the c.h.p. to abide by the "snack law," and do as the ice cream cone says, "eat it all." (he also informed us that eating brussle sprouts was illegal).

a graduation party (sorry no pix).  three table decorations (fish) came home with us. two remain. fish food has been bought, and the kids have promised to be 100% responsible for their latest pets. ( it's already looking grim for these two).

"E" is for emma... sewed a homemade birthday gift. cost for t-shirt and materials, $7.

went to a father's day matinee, Toy Story 3 (accompanied by many tears because Andy's going to college,) followed by father's day dinner with the rogers and allens.
the girls found the dress up clothes in the attic to entertain them, the boy's played "risk," and papa dan played his guitar.  being with the rogers and the allens feels like home to me. it is good to have people who are home.

I love that home feeling when you are not actually with your "blood" family. Those friends are few and far between and I am ok with that considering all that they know! :) I wish I could sew. I am beginning to think that with half the people I follow in blogville able to sew and the others are so creative in other areas I am out of my league!!!!!

I can relate to EAT IT ALL though. THAT I have no problem with...have you finished the cereal yet? :)
