practically pikasso

whew! we have had such a busy and fun week so far! susanne and mckinlee came to stay with us this week and mom has had brock, cole, and lauren staying with them, so we have been doing all sorts of activites. in the midst of all of our fun though, i have gotten a horrible cold, so my head is swimming and i think i've blown my nose 500 times. ugh!
monday, we went to practically pikasso which is a 'paint your own pottery' place. mom let mckinlee and lauren each pick out something to paint, then they picked the colors and stencils they wanted and started painting. the owners fire your pottery and you pick it up a few days later. so cool! they had some coffee mugs i think i will do for mike and i sometime.

here's mom and lauren with her 'L'

picking their paint colors

in the midst of their creativity ;)
the girls have gotten their nails painted, gone to the museum, bought tons of jewelry, made sugar cookies, and played lots of games.
the boys have made birdhouses with their grandpa, hiked and climb a cliff at the river, and played catch.
last night, we all went to poppa rollo's pizza for dinner. yum!
having fun is exhausting (maybe the head cold and being 9 months pregnant isn't helping! ha!)


  1. Sounds like y'all have had a great time. So glad everyone could spend time together! Hope you feel better.

  2. Wow! All of this sounds like so much fun! I do agree that tons of fun can be exhausting, but isn't it just great? :)

  3. Sounds like fun! I LOVE your headband!

  4. Thanks for taking pictures of our adventure!

    That was a memorable day...I want to go back and do something myself too!
