Our weekend was not only emotional, but rainy and stormy to boot! So our original plan of spending an evening in Millcreek canyon cooking with the dutch oven (#5 on my summer list.) was replaced with baking a berry cobbler in the dutch oven on our front porch Sunday night. Taste was great. Just not as scenic. :) Freddie, Laura and Amy came up for the day which was really fun and especially helpful with Pearce during church.
Impromptu family photo after church.
I love that little tongue wagger.
Did I mention Pearce wants to "help" with everything? It's cute, but also messy. At least we were outside.
We used this recipe and it was fantastic.
Oh and just a few more instagrams from the past few days...
I thought the logical place to put Pearce's play kitchen was IN the kitchen. It sat there for the past couple months and got a little bit of use, but usually just in passing. I finally gave her bedroom a good clean, and much needed organization, and moved her kitchen into her room. And glad I did, she has spent hours playing with it over the past few days. Especially since I've gathered any food related item to place in the kitchen. She has been obsessed with tea parties and cupcakes lately. Pretty cute. Oh yeah, and the ballerina tutu is still in full use.
I feel bad about this next one... one day when I was making dinner (this justifies it, right?) she found Jeremy's razor in the bathroom and tried to shave like daddy. She really does copy EVERYTHING we do. Gotta be careful there... poor little thing also tried to put it in her mouth like a lollipop (another recent obsession). Now she says "Razor's sharp. Only daddy shave." like 10x a day.
And today I remembered we have a fenced backyard. Halleluja! This child is a runaway, we usually do the sidewalk chalk in the driveway. But that's when she starts running for the church or playground. So today we did it in our backyard. And there are even chairs out there. Excellent!!
Eating watermelon is a favorite summer activity. And Pearce jumping on ants and saying "eeeew, gross!"
Okay, just one more photo, k? I have to show off this cute little blouse I made with Liberty of London fabric that I've had for a while now (just a 1/2 yard) waiting for the perfect project. I love it! And wish I had one for myself! This is the Oliver+S Family Reunion pattern using "View B" which is the blouse length. And it's also now, near impossible to get still photos of her modeling clothes I make. The majority are blurry.
