beware of bares {instagram}


linking up with jeanette, 
and
life rearranged


it's been a busy week here in our neck of the woods. 

 the maui cousin's, luke and nicholas, are staying with us for 6 days!
my kids could not be happier. 
because we only get to see them once a year, we are squeezing 
every ounce of memory making fun into our week together.

we began with a memorable hike to the bass lake falls. 
we hiked clothed, 
but a bare was spotted. 
beware.
 
the kids enjoyed swimming and sliding down natural water slides. 
michael and his brother, christopher, enjoyed seeing 
their kids playing together in their childhood backyard.  

****************

ice cream from miller's landing was a post falls must. 


****************
 
on our maui cousin fun list was 
a nacho libre dinner/ outdoor movie/camp-out night.


****************

 michael and christopher grew up watching the fireworks from their 
family's boat on bass lake.
so seeing luke and nicholas experience the 4th of july on the lake was a must! 

   these yummy blue n' strawberry shortcake jars 
were the perfect dessert for the boat. 


****************

 not pictured is that i took the kids {minus josie} to see 
the amazing spiderman movie.
it's not pictured because for the first time ever
i did not stay with them! 
they enjoyed the movie, 
and loved their independence. 


****************

Josie loves being fabulous.  
50+ bracelets,  3 tutus, red sunnies, and a shining personality
  make fabulous possible. 
 


****************
 
she does not love king snakes discovered in our yard.
{*shiver*  i'm with ya, josie}
maui cousins want to take it home as a pet.


****************
in non-cousin news, 
 pinterest is the devil.
for fun i searched for pixie cuts.
a few hours later i walked out of a salon looking like this. 

What's going on in your neck of the woods this week?
