Come Take A Walk Down Memory Lane...

Come out, come out where ever you are! Enjoy a walk down memory lane with me!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

Cousins, Camping, and Birthday Parties...

July came and went way too quick! Camping was short lived this year. We were only able to get the trailer out once this year but had fun anyways. We met Scott's parents out at Ridge Reservoir intending to stay for 3 nights but Makynna decided the first night at about 2 am that she didn't want to camp anymore. So, the next day we packed up the trailer - after a day of boat rides, fishing, walking with Grandma Ully, and playing - and went home. The day that we were supposed to come home we got a phone call from Scott's parents. They got hit with a wicked hail storm. The hail was the size of softballs and they had 3 actually go through the walls and roof of their fifth wheel!!! So thank Heaven for whispering in Makynna's ear because I don't think our tent trailer would have given us much protection.

Chrissy and her 3 kids came up for a visit before they left for their move to Oklahoma. It was good to see them all, and the kids had a blast playing.

We also celebrated Makynna's 3rd Birthday too. We had a family party at the Hovan house as well as one at the Ully house. My sister made these wonderful frog cupcakes. I wish I had her talent of creativity. From Makynna's cousins she got two games and a pair of dress up shoes...that she tries to run in all the time, Scary!!! From Grandma Ully and Auntie Daina she got a 'Tickle Trunk' full of costumes (which Oryn and I tried on), and from Grandpa Ully she got a scooter.

Daniel and Makynna also did some dancing...as you can see Makynna has some 'sick' moves. =)

Auntie Pissy and Oryn.

Great Grandma Boo with Oryn. And Auntie Daina with Oryn.

On the morning of Makynna's birthday I asked her what she wanted for breakfast...she said pancakes, so I made them special for her. And seeing that we didn't have a friend birthday party for her this year I made rice crispy flowers and took them to nursery on Sunday.

All in all it was good month!
