Sometimes You Need No Words

I love these pictures because they say so much!
I will just let them do the talking...

A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never
be lost.

From Nashville to Auburn

After the 4th of July in Nashville, Mom, Dad, the kids and I headed to Auburn
to see Richard, Amy and the kiddos!
I think it is safe to say the cousins were glad to see each other!

We spent a lot of time at the pool...

and just hanging out with each other... 

Constant playing was done by ALL...

We even enjoyed making and eating S'mores!

We always enjoy our times with family!

Cousins Make the Best Friends

These 4...
Separated by 3 1/2 years...
Separated by 1 1/2 inches...

So much fun when they get together...

Childhood playmates who grow up to be 

Independence Day 2014

We got up BRIGHT and early on the 4th of July to take off to Nashville.
We were ready to be with the Welch side of the family for the weekend!
The kids actually took a break from playing to spend some time in the pool for a few hours.

Carter and Johnathan were swimsuit twins and they thought that was great!

Then, most of us headed to Vanderbilt to see our first semi-pro soccer game.
Nashville FC was playing Knoxville in the playoffs.
LB was in HIGH heaven,
and Nashville won!!!

Papa John, LB, Johnathan, and Carter

All the kids enjoyed it but LB and Johnathan did especially!
Carter was thrilled when we made a pit stop across the street at the baseball stadium.

We ran home and literally threw a hamburger or two down our throats to get ready for
the fireworks show in downtown Nashville.

Papa John and Mama C with their grandkids
Aunt Charla even joined them on this trip! It was great seeing her!
The whole crew!

Happy 4th of July!!!!!

A Patriotic Crafty Day

We have had a bucket list this summer.
(Yes, I should have blogged about it, but since I have done almost
12 months of blogging in 2 months, I am not too worried about it!)
One of the things on the bucket list was to make shirts.
I saw this craft idea and knew we had to try it.
My kids LOVE to tye-dye shirts and thought this would be SO much easier!

Materials Needed:
duct tape or vinyl
spray paint
poster board

Step 1:  Choose a design you want on your shirt.  We cut ours out on the Cricut machine using vinyl.
My daughter made stripes on her shirt (pictures of that were not taken, sorry) and used duct tape 
for the stripes.

Step 2:  Place the vinyl on the shirt where you want it.  Once you have it where you want it, adhere.
(see pictures below)

Step 3:  Place poster boards through the shirts and then lay the shirts on top of poster boards or newspapers.
(see pictures below)

Step 4:  Spray the shirt using the color of spray paint you want on the area you want it.
(Check to be sure the spray paint is able to be used on fabric.  Most I saw where able to be used
on fabric.)

Step 5:  Let the paint dry for a few hours and remove the vinyl or duct tape from the shirt.

Step 6: After 24 hours, wash and dry. I washed and dried them by themselves the first time.
