Sarah's 8th Birthday

So, it's almost a month since Sarah's birthday so I figured I'd best get the pictures up on the blog!

Sarah ended up having 3 gift times.  The first was a combined party with cousins while my sister and her family were here from Arizona.  Sarah opted to get her main gift then.  I have other pictures of the cousins opening presents that will be in another post about the family reunion.

Sarah's 2nd gift time was her "friend" party that turned into a birthday playdate with her best friend from school as the other invitations got lost in kids' bags until after the party.

Craft time

Because our plans of camping in my parents' backyard over the 4th of July didn't work out due to the excessive heat, we camped the next week, which put us there on Sarah's actual birthday, so we had a little party for her.

Homemade Popsicles

The kids and I made some homemade popsicles.  Some healthier and others, not so much!

I mixed equal parts of yogurt and fruit juice

and poured into molds
Yogurt/juice pops

These were just Hawaiian Punch, so not a healthier option, but fun :)

Sarah's Cast Removal ☺

Sarah's appointment to get her cast removed was Wednesday.

They had these animals in the waiting room for the kids to play on

Cutting the cast off

This shows the pins in her elbow

They used the bottom of the cast to make a splint
for her to use for a week or two.  She can take it off to bathe or swim
and when she's sleeping/not active (so basically, when she's sleeping!)

First Fruits

We picked some veggies from the garden today!  Not a lot, but it is the first ☺

The zucchini got bigger than I would have liked

The kids love to eat the green beans straight out of the garden ☺

My corn on the 10th of July (I wasn't able to get a picture on the 4th)

This is what my corn looked like on the 16th of June!
