Saturday Picnic And Tree Climb

Today Grandma and Grandpa Sagers came to visit. We had a nice picnic lunch in the park.
 Then we went to a different park where the Utah Forestry Council was having a Tree Climbing Competition. There were speed climbing, aerial rescues, and a few other competitions. They also had a children's tree climb. Landon, Grace, and Emily all got a turn.

Gracie made it the farthest. She was in sandals and made it clear to the very top (about 20 feet up in the tree) but they all had fun. Diana and I both had sunburns by the end of the day from working outside, mowing the lawn, weeding, and cleaning up the yard. Good Day.

Mother's-In-Law Day Present

With the help of Hobby Lobby and Home Depot, Diana and I made this for her mom. The board was from Home Depot, and painted with cream enamel, then painted over the top with gold, then wiped off for a "glazed" effect. Then we attached the letters and word with wood screws. I think it turned out quite nice.

Project for My Niece

My sister (with the help of her husband) recently turned an old sheep camp into a playhouse for her littler girl. It had sat vacant at my Grandma's house for at least 20 years, so it was quite the project. She remodeled the inside including the upholstery and flooring. Anyway -- now, her daughter has a cute little playhouse. Which brings me to MY contribution.

I decided to make her some "play food" she could have in her kitchen. We have a glut of spare cans from Becca's food powder.
The nice thing is the lids are removable so she can store whatever she wants in them. I created my own labels, printed them on 11x17 paper (cut in 1/2 lengthwise) and glued them on the cans. I think they turned out pretty darn cute, and I think she will like them.
