Summer in Durango

Here are some fun things we've been up to lately...

Check this guy out! Found him in our yard along with a Black Widow spider the other day.

Foamerator bubble snakes!. Find out how here.

 Learning to balance on the basketball. He's starting to get it!

 Marshmallow Fondant. WE had a bunch left over from past birthday parties so we used it like edible play-doh one day. Anyone remember Kartusch and the Furry Eyefulls?

Mama's garden gnome. Recipe: Take a bag of marshmallows and put into a microwave safe bowl. Toss with 3 Tbsp water. Melt in microwave by checking carefully and stirring until all of them are melted. Add powdered sugar until it's no longer sticky. Once you start handling it, it will become sticky. Use shortening on your work surface and hands if need be to keep it from sticking.

This is what brothers do. Sneak into each other's beds after the padres tuck them in.

Patrick is composing a new song.

Riding the pump track behind our house.

And now we are going to go for one last camping spree before school starts. See you in a few!
