Knowing that this week was going to be extremely hot, we headed out to find some new crafts/projects to try! We found some clearance crafts at Hobby Lobby and scored t-shirts at the $ store.....we weren't sure at the time what we were going to do with them, but this morning we tryed our hands at using bleach to tye die!
Another awesome Family Fun recipe....sweet sandals!!! A perfect way to spend time with friends on a day that was way too hot to spend any extended time outdoors:)

A nice clean deck, campfire and sparklers were all we needed to have an incredible night on the 4th (oh, and grandpa and grandma!)!
This year on the 4th we were invited to participate in a bike parade by our friends, the Meyerings! Being that we rarely have plans for the 4th we were really excited about the possibilities:) So I headed to the Dollar Store to find some things we could decorate with and rumaged through some bins downstairs and came up with some stuff that would work! That morning we headed out to the breezeway to decorate (or shall I say so that Ryan and I could decorate) the bikes.
In June we were invited to go horse riding!! I couldn't believe what an AWESOME experience it was for Kailyn and Will to see all that goes into riding a horse and taking care of him. They helped brush and watch Lindsey saddle Allie, the most gentle horse you've ever met!

In mid-June we headed to DeLange's Redberry Farm to pick our families favorite fruit.....strawberries!!!! We picked at least 20 quarts of berries in under an hour, thanks to our amazing little helpers:) That day we put up 8 batches of jam....yummy!!!! We also tackled a few strawberry pies and mashed some berries to freeze for shortcake...it was a very productive day!!!
