Memorable Memorial Weekend

I am SO glad we got to spend so much time with family. I don't have much to say that I haven't already written, but I do need to post some more darling pictures!

On Saturday, I did some crafts with Rachel & Emma. They loved their fairy wands and crowns, and it was so easy to make. They honestly wore them all day, especially Rachel, who truly believes she lives in a fairy tale.

Beautiful Emma

After Abby woke up from her little nap I was able to make the craft with her, look at her just glowing at her reflection.

This is the best part, when she realized what I was doing and asked "Are you taking pictures of me?" She looks so upset here, even though she really wasn't, and in the next picture she was asking to see herself.

So the boys got a little jealous that they weren't doing projects with me, and got kind of bored of playing with the pups outside. They kept asking me when I'd be done with the girl crafts so I could start doing the boy stuff. So this.... was my solution! A spider on a stick! I hadn't really prepared a boy activity (note for next trip) and so this was my impromptu creation with the left over goodies. But I feel like the options are limitless with a bit of pipe cleaners, bbq sticks, and hot glue.

But I do believe that it turned out to be quite the hit. Quinton was being a stinker though & wouldn't let me take a photo of just him. This was the best I could get.

Evan was much more obliging. Look at his darling grin.

The evening was ended watching some classic Disney cartoons like Moose Hunters and the Skeleton Dance. I love how Michael looks so little in this picture next to Jon.
