Keeping Busy

Last week Mackenzie and John flew out to Denver to Aunt Jen and Uncle Scotts house. (Kenzie is starting her 3 week road trip with Nana from there) So anyway, the boys and I tried to stay busy. Here is just a few of the things we did.

We went to the park and played in the wading pool. Jackson mostly stood in 1 spot and stared at the water. We played hide and seek in the laundry. We ate muffin tin meals (JT's new favorite). We played in the sprinklers. We dressed as cows and went to Chick-fil-A on cow appreciation day, we got free lunch, and Jackson loved the cow.

We made Terreriums in empty soda bottles. We did a bunch of science experiments, like seeing if a hard boiled egg will fit into a jar that is too small for it, and seeing if we could blow up a balloon with a rotten banana. We also picked some Queen Annes Lace and put it into different colored water, and watched as the flowers turned colors from sucking up the water. We did some other experiments too.
We played monopoly a few times too. We used special dye and sun dyes some bandanas and shirts,(I'll post pics of them later).

We did a lot of other things too. It was a busy week, but Daddy is back now to help with the entertaining. (I need a break)
