Bikes.


One fine early morning (7:30 a.m.) some boys invited us to go on a lovely and long bike ride. It was very much fun, me and Bailey rode the tandem bike and we almost crashed multiple times, went over lots of curbs, up and down hills, and around sharp turns. It was awesome. We trespassed onto a golf course and got in trouble, they told us to leave and continued down the golf path so they turned their sprinklers on on us.

Wooooooooohooooooo!

A couple days ago I got the most awesome short notice invite to accompany Miss Bailey Bracken at Lagoon.... I am so glad I was able to go. We had bucket loads of fun, laughter, and adventure.




The care ride there was awesome. we love donuts... and doing yoga/gymnastics/i don't really know in the care.


The merry-go-round. My most favorite ride... ever.







I really liked these awesome balls of flowers.


Okay dudes, we got to ride the skycoaster... it was awesome. See Below: (sorry you kinda have to tilt your head)


And we really wanted you to enjoy the fun with us! so here is a video of us on a roller coaster! woot! woot!


Thanks Bailey for letting me be part of the fam for a couple days! You are awesome! whoooopeee!

mmmm.

One day, me and little Zac were home alone all day. So we decided to party. We made some homemade pizza, drank Izzes, laughed really hard, and went swimming.





Gigi even joined us!


hardware store.

dude, 2 words.
Hardware Store.
This place is like the crafter's heaven. There are so many amazing little things just waiting to be turned into something beautiful.

For Example, my little necklace made out of an faucet handle (an old button i had on hand), and some spray paint.


and my ring that was inspired by this little rusted nut.


Three cheers for hardware stores!

5 things about me that may or may not be socially acceptable.

First I love stale marshmallows. I could eat them all day. They are better than new mallows becuase new ones leave a strange feeling in your mouth.. and they just are so much better. just beucase.
 
Second I hate having a sheet on the bed. you know that thin sheet that is totally pointless. It bugs me... to me it is just extra work an extra sheet you have to fix on the bed.
 
Third I hot glue anything. when i say anything i mean anything. pillows, picture frames to the wall, stubborn jewelry, my shoes, anything. 
 
Fourth I overlap my projects. I start one then 15 minutes later do another. then go back and finish the first one another day. I am always working on like 8 different things at a time.
 
Fifth I think everyone has weird dreams...but mine just seem different. ha. I have some normal ones like when my dad was a pilot and I went skydiving, and typical things. But I've had some weird ones. Okay so I will tell you one, the other day I found a cool recycled craft that called for some of those box things that they use to tie bread shut. See here. and we didn't have any at my house.. so I couldn't make it. That night I dreamt that this lady invited me to a teaparty and on the table she had our her collection of those things and I asked about them and she said that they have been in the family for years. So when she went to go get cookies or whatever I grabbed a handfull and ran out the door. I made my craft, it was cute, then I woke up. 
 
What about you? What things make you, You?

A Sweet Surprise

Look at the little beauty we found in my backyard! A cute little hummingbird had built his nest on one of our lights and it has 2 little eggs! In 3 weeks we should have some little baby hummingbirds! Yeah! We are still deciding on names.... any ideas?

River Rafting


Friday me and my family went floating down the virgin river. First, we had to buy tubes.. so we went in to walmart looking like this. (above photo) We got some tubes here and some at Target. Then we spent the next two hours floating down the Virgin River.. it was much better than the Santa Clara river. I only ran over a couple of trees and hit only 2 rocks. I didn't get sunburnt this time and I only had one little bruise. Nobody even popped a tube! It was so much fun!

8$

If you give the Call kids 8$ chances are they will first go out to anti-gravity (since we have life time passes woot! woot! we are so cool!) and then we will spend an hour and a half at Albertson's trying to make a meal out of our 8$. Eventually we will come up with the world's most supreme, delicous and long sandwich for only 8$! Woot!
