Jaylen's class had pioneer day on Friday. She got to dress up as a cowgirl, eat cornbread and jerky, make butter and all kinds of fun stuff. I was getting ready to go to work, but I made her pose for the camera first, cause she looked so darn cute!!!

School is starting later this week, and after all that has happened over the summer, I realized that we haven't done a whole lot. I asked the kids what they needed to do before school starts to finish out the summer. They said, "we haven't gone to a baseball game!" and "we need to go camping." So me being the mom I am decided to try and squeeze it all in this past week. On Wednesday we went to the Rockies vs Giants baseball game. I think they like the cotton candy and hot dogs more than actually watching baseball, but we had fun.
Then on Thursday we went up to Golden Gate Canyon State Park for a quick overnight camping trip. We got there around 5:30 and barely got the tent up before it started to rain. We finished our dinner in the car and started to read the first Harry Potter book (they are totally hooked). After a lot of effort, we managed to build a fire with wet wood just big enough to roast our marshmallows for s'mores. It was really beautiful up there, but we froze!!! The kids loved it. Trevor was squealing and laughing about everything, and a few times our campground neighbors yelled at us to be quiet. And everyone who knows Tyler knows that he doesn't know how to be quiet. So we have one last thing to do before finishing out our summer break before school starts on Thursday and that is to go the "The bucket pool."
So to sum it all up it is not summer break unless you... have a BBQ... take swim lessons...go swimming... sleep in...watch summer movies for 50 cents...go to a baseball game...go camping...eat Popsicles-lots of them...read a good book...wear your swimsuit around the house (if you are a kid and have no inhibitions)... eat lots of watermelon... and stay up too late!-I almost forgot, homemade ice cream!

Well, it has been one week since our water leak, and we are not much closer to getting things back to normal. The water restoration team is still not finished with drying everything out and spent the better part of yesterday cutting out the ceiling and wall in the kitchen. I have to say of all of the places to have construction, the kitchen has to be one of the worst. Our table has been moved into the family room, as well as the china cabinet, and toy box. They are still not sure if they will have to tear our the drywall above the washer and dryer area, but will no for sure on Monday. Our insurance adjuster has been M.I.A. at this point. Even though, I know that he is waiting for the restoration crew to leave, we have yet to call and find him in the office rather than out. I have been pretty patient for the past week, but I have to admit, it is running out fast. We are waiting.... and waiting... to find out what amount the insurance company will give us, until then we will be yelling over the loud fans and trying not to lose it.

One of the great things about summer is garage sale season. Our latest garage sale find, was a brand new cotton candy machine. Jaylen negotiated the price from $2 to $1. It was in the original box, and had never been used. The kids had fun trying it out. It only makes a very small amount, but all you need is regular sugar. The kids say it is awesome!
