Insta Friday!

Oh Insta Friday {and Instagram} how I love you!  Here is whats been going down here in the Tri Cities over the past week...

The best part of being a parent is showing your kids new things.  Especially things that you loved to do when you were a kid. Things like playing hot lava, balloon volleyball, and putting a sprinkler under the trampoline. Even better is when they love it as much as you do.  Cuz you still totally love those things. 

My favorite sister came to visit which always means date night for me and Darin.  Harry Potter in 3D was the obvious choice this time.  We played Hanging with Friends while we waited for the movie to start.  We both groaned when the Twilight preview came on.

Obviously I've had friendship bracelets on the brain, so when I was getting my lesson ready to teach at church on Sunday about family unity, I knew i just had to make some of these.  {inspired by my friend Danyelle}

What do you do on a Sunday evening when the masses are demanding pizza on the barbeque, but you just don't have pizza sauce?  And you kind of have this thing about not shopping on Sunday?  You make your own sauce I guess.  Thanks Mrs. Wages pizza sauce mix.  You just add canned tomatoes.  Easy peasy.  Leave out the sugar by the way.  

I wish my buns looked that cute in ruffles.

My mini me.  The older she gets {she's gonna be 4 next week!} the more I realize she is so much like me in so many ways.  

It is seriously amazing what a clean craft room will do for your motivation to craft.  I joined in on Craftiness is not optional's June But dress sew along.  A few tweaks here and there and Ivy's got herself a new dress.  Which she needs like a hole in the head but whatevs.

Getting this girl to ride her bike can be like pulling teeth sometimes. Unless its in circles in the house. Last night we cruised around the block.  Twice.  She had a big smile on her face the whole time.  Gaining some confidence and a little competition was all this girl needed to get the motivation to go down the hill.  After that it was my regular dare devil back in action. 

Happy Insta Friday!
