Fireflies have been so much fun to see and catch this summer. Brent was curious if we could capture them in a picture. While he failed at that, he started taking some "ghost" pictures of the kids and the neighbor kids. They had so much fun posing for them like zombies.
We got a pass to the Discovery Park of America and have gone several times already. The first time we went we tried to fit everything in and see it all.
Oh girls camp. Teenage girls make me smile. I was asked to be a guest speaker at stake girls camp yesterday. I don't know if I did too well at the speaking part but hopefully my art did more of the speaking for me. Anyway as I was leaving I stopped in the bathroom and saw these pictures all over the stalls and just had to take a picture. Ha ha.
Don't worry we were driving really slow in an elk and bison viewing area so they were safe. Anyway, they LOVED getting to be unbuckled looking out the window and pointing out the wildlife. Poor Chico in the middle. :)
We were setting up for a newborn photo shoot and Brent had the little ones pose for him while he set up the lighting. Chico looks so handsome.
And Sanna's ballerina bun is so cute.
For one of our Primary Activities I was in charge of the Daddy Daughter Date. I delegated parts of it to others but the photo booth was my little baby. I brought some of my vinyl backdrops and got some pom poms and streamers from dollar tree and was really pleased with how it turned out. I even brought our big flashes and while Brent and I were getting the lighting set up we all took turns posing.
Then we hurried home and got cleaned up for the big date! The Primary President and I both have boys that of course we couldn't leave at home so we let watch a movie in a classroom while we served at the Date.
When everyone got there I took cute pictures of the Dads with their daughters. The silly ones were later...
Then everyone ate Pizzas and Artisan Bread. I didn't take pictures of that because I was hiding in the kitchen stuffing my own face with pizza.
Then the games and dancing began. First we did a relay race where the dads had to dress their girls in a dress, boa, heels, and a crown and then help them to cone and back.
Then they all danced...Sanna was quite the demanding dance partner. Brent got quite the workout dancing with her.
We ended the party with root beer floats and then finally let the boys out of the classroom as we cleaned up...
