My phone ran out of memory while I was recording my daughter’s summer camp recital. When I realized that I missed the last 2 songs of the medley, I approached a kind looking man with a video camera and exchanged email addresses, hoping he might send me his footage. He did and it is way better quality than what I had anyway. Here are the 2 videos. (Because he was recording to capture his daughter, he left out the tap number in between these 2 segments)
My son still likes to play “Graffiti Kingdom” on the PS2 from time to time. He has gotten back into creating new characters lately.
These are some shots I grabbed.
We had a great time at a friend’s house last night celebrating for the 4th of July.
We went to the outdoor pool for the first time this year. It took a little time for the kids to warm up to the crowd, but they had a blast.
They loved the slides and the diving board best.
And the soft pretzels were delicious. Here is my grumpy cat kid.
After our initial success with the Kirby cake pops, my daughter wanted to make more. While we were browsing webpages looking at supplies, I found a cake pop/ donut hole machine for under $20. It seemed worth a try. It cuts out heating up the big oven and means that the cake pop has a cupcake middle instead of cake and icing which was pretty doughy and super sweet.
I tried it out first with GF muffin mix as a surprise for our Tuesday Tea Time. It worked perfectly. They came out nice and round and were quickly devoured!
My daughter and I decided to try making chocolate ones for a 4th of July party.
People gave us compliments on them 🙂
Both kids have been expressing an interest in creating more art on the computer and the iPad.
This is a recent drawing from my daughter using the iPad.
A toad paid a visit to out toad home. He (or she) didn’t stay though. I think we might need to bury a bit more of the pot or move it back closer to the bush and the house. We’ll see.
