The next day we sang some songs from a book about the Constitution of the United States. There were some pictures to go along with the songs, but we learned a little bit about George Washington and the flag and some other patriotic stuff. If I had really been a great mom, I would've had us do a red, white and blue craft and had a matching food spread to dine on, but we just sang songs. (Baby steps...)
The next day we went to Peter Piper Pizza. The kids had certificates for free tokens and free pizzas from the summer library program. I was expecting a dirty place with bored teenage workers. It was completely the opposite. The service was amazing, the store was clean and we had a lot of fun. I discovered that I really like to play the Let's Make a Deal videogame. I have a hard time giving in--I'm always hoping my case has a bazillion tickets!
Madi and Owen have been best friends and betrothed for many years now.
The apples one week later. Ryanna's got mold, so we had to toss it, I graciously gave her mine. What a great mom!
One day we did a scooter ride through the neighborhood.
We also had a baking day where we made pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins.
Owen's in there...somewhere...
There's Eli in flight!
Owen REALLY wanted to ring that bell.
We had a park day where we got together with lots of friends from the ward.
He's making his mean face for the camera.
What? Don't you carve without a shirt on?
My first attempt to carve a pattern on a pumpkin. Let's just say there were some complications.
It looked great for one full day!
Caleb's shirt was actually one we made when Eli was less than a month old. Amazing how fast the time goes.
