Head to the Hills ~Day Two!

On vacation day two...we woke {as always} to a beautiful view!

I brought a bucket of goodies to make a special project.

Water Bombs!

I read about this idea HERE and thought it would something fun to bring along to make with the kids! I didn't tell them what we were making so they were pretty excited to get started. As I gave instructions I kept giving them clues and asking them if they could guess what we were making and they just couldn't figure it out! They were very easy to make!

I must admit though, that I was more excited about the finished product than they were! =)

Kolton lost interest quick {though we had a blast in the pool that afternoon}, Lola made one and then chose to make a sponge family instead, Natalie was disapointed because she had in her mind that we were painting something and Tristin made his but really was kind of going with the flow...but I felt project was so very cute! It didn't cost a lot of money and we ended up having a lot of fun with them!

That afternoon, the big boys went to Bass Pro {with the kids} and Grandma and I went to run a few local errands.

I left my camera at home but I so wish I would have had it! We stopped at a few places I haven't been before including a cute road side vegetable stand that sold "korn".

{sigh} next time....

More pool time when everyone got back.

And some picture time for me!

I don't have a lot of extra time at home to learn about all my camera settings so it was so much fun to practice on all the beautiful flowers!

Then {one of our favorites} a ride on the Rino!

The day ended with a backyard fireworks display proudly set off by two of my favorite boys!

A perfect end to a wonderful day! =)
