Chalk Paint- super easy!!!

We made a batch of chalk paint today. SUPER EASY and so much fun. We have a kiddo with pink eye, so this was a great way to use up our time!

Basically you mix half part cornstartch and half part water. Then we added a little food coloring to make our colors. So much fun!

Kayaking on the Brazos

We have become a kayaking family over the past few years. Yesterday we were finally able to talk our Nana into joining us. She LOVED it! Who wouldn't love it though! We had a great time. :)

Summer time fun!

Coloring Rocks

 Yesterday we collected several rocks from our kayaking adventure. Today we decorated them. Basically wash any kind of rock, and put it in the oven to cook. Then peel crayon wrappers. After your rock is hot, color it with the crayon. The crayon instantly melts onto the rock. Its beautiful! We made these today.

I turned 33 today. Weird. Im 33, with four kids ages from 5-13, and married almost 15 years. If you do the math, you realize I got started early with marriage and family. The exciting thing about that is I will still be young when the kids are old enough to leave the house!

Anyway, my bday was lovely. I had breakfast made by the time I got home from boot camp. Brittini came with lunch, and we kayaked for dinner!

This birthday was all about quality time and I just loved hearing from the people that mean the most! On facebook I got 88 birthday messages! Golly I felt special.
This is my parents facetiming me. So sweet- I love them both so much!

Anyway, I read this quote- had to share it here. May I have many many birthdays!
Birthdays are good for you.  Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.

I just love my kids creativity.

The other day I found this sign at the bottom on the stairs. I went to inquire about the sign, but ended up interupting the trial run for the show. haha. So, before bedtime, I enjoyed an amazing light show put on by the one and only DJ and Taylor. SO FUN!

Fathers Day

Our dad is our superhero and we are so blessed he is ours!! 
Being a hero is not about doing big things occasionally, it's about doing small things consistently.
