Our trip to the aquarium

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

So we went on one of our field trips to the aquarium in South Salt Lake a few weeks ago and the kids had a blast and were well behaved and we got some really great shots of the animals there. Evelyn was desperate to pet something since she isn’t big enough to get the rays that Matt and Andrew did. Rora was thrilled to see the fish and just watch them through the glass. This summer we have discovered that she is OK with animals in general but ducks, some birds and fish REALLY capture her attention.

Totally Happy with her fish :)

More Scrappin’, Painting, and Sewing

Sunday, August 17th, 2008

Well, I have had a productive week this week and last. I was able to have a scrap night this last week and got a few pages done and I got a well needed break from the kids on Tuesday and took the time to relax and paint in Evelyn’s room. I have also gotten out the sewing machine to work on a few projects that have been put aside all summer. One is for Matt’s all-day Kindergarten he is required to have a 12″x12″ pillow with his name on it, so I embroidered him one:) I am also making an American quilt and so I have been working on a few parts of that in an effort to get that done before Robert comes home (a lofty goal, but it might happen:) ).
