Water Fun...continured.

Several post ago there are pictures of some water fun we had with the Powell's.  I guess I uploaded all those pictures twice.  But there were a few more on this one...So I erased the ones I already posted and here are the ones that were left...and should have been on that post.  Here is a random picture of the kitchen.  I think I took it because I wrote Welcome Powell's on the chalk board.  Since I like my kitchen I decided not to delete it.

After playing in the hose because that is the only way you can be outside when it is 34 million degrees out...
We ate all sorts of unhealthy things.  Mac and cheese.  French bread pizza.  You know yummy stuff.
                                       And this is this the reason I really had to post this.
                     And this one too.  And now I will go to sleep since my eyes are glazing over....

Father's Day (was a long time ago)

Aaron got a new pillow just like the one he gave me two Christmases ago and he has been coveting ever since.  Just tonight as he went to bed (at 9:45 because he was so tired and I wasn't so I am still up blogging.  This happens every time he goes to bed before me.  It is almost 1:30...) and I handed it to him with a fresh clean sheet on it (I am changing the sheets a day early that is how on it I am this week!), he mentioned it was the best pillow ever.  You're welcome.

The Primary kiddos colored on hearts so we could "heart attack" the Bishops door since he is the Father of our Ward.

I took this picture as I was leaving the church on Saturday night after decorating the door.  It turns out that very night you could see two planets...and I should really know which ones they are but I don't because it is past 1:30 am....

I snapped this picture (that same Sat before Father's day so it still pertains to the overall theme of this post.  I am sure I was there to pick up some F.D. treat) because I am sneaky like that. It reminded me of when I worked at Bi-Lo.  We (the taxpayers) paid for her food.  She paid for the beer that you see on the bottom of her buggy. 

We made some banana bread and muffins for Daddy, because he always asks when I am going to make some.  And for Papa Harmon for Father's daybecause they are is favorite.  We made regular and chocolate chip.

Sadie had to check and see if we needed any help. 

He got a Star Wars shirt too!  That of course makes him extremely happy because you can never have too many.

And it came in the Star Wars bag so that is a bonus. Oh look the shirt behind the new shirt was a Star Wars shirt.  Surprise, surprise! :)

That was after church but before we had to take this boy to Scout Camp.

It was 72 million degrees out so I am surprised they would pose for a picture.

And one more because I loves Jake's smile in it and Aaron's eyes are closed, so it's a win-win.

72 million degrees I swear. 

Holy cow they are adorable.

I just kept taking pictures because I already missed him...

That towel keeps you cool when you wet it.  This picture again proves that it was HOT.  It may have even been 73 million degrees.  No joke-it was so hot that the side of my calves burned from the heat coming off the black top and we were only out there for maybe 15 minutes. I am dead serious.  I had to get up in the night and put aloe on my legs.  It was crazy hot people!!

After Jake left we headed over to my parents for dinner and I didn't take any pictures at all.  Probably because one of my favorite faces wasn't there to photograph....and I forgot bring my dad's gift (we dropped Papa Harmon's off after church before Daddy got home and before taking Jake to the drop off) so that is okay.  I think I took pictures of him opening it the next day...I will see it as I write the other posts from a month ago that I haven't posted yet! :)

Randomness...from June.

 This boy and this dog.
 Like peanut butter and jelly.
Love 'em!

Bracelet happiness.  I have since broken the owl one but I have all the beads so I can remake it.  Thanks mom for making it for me for my birthday! 

This was the 10 forecast for the week Jake was at Scout Camp.  It wasn't quit that hot there (because it is up the mountain) but it was in Sparkle City. And lets face it not quit that hot is still hot.  I hate it.  Really this is way to hot.

That's right Scout Camp was the week of June 22nd and I haven't posted about it yet.  Don't judge.  I have had the pictures uploaded for a while now.  I have to add words and then I will post it...and many other posts waiting to see the light of day.

Tie Dye

In case you are wondering, none of the events that occurred when the Powell's were here are being documented in order.  This happened a few times.  Minecraft.
                                            But what you are about to see only happened once.
                                                               We tie dyed t-shirts.
       We never did wear them at the same time which was part of the plan, but that's okay.
         Jake kind of looks like a giant in the picture.  Which reminds me he grew again.  Riannon pointed out on Sunday that she was wearing 4 inch heels and he was still taller than him.
Wow.  I took a ton of pictures.  I uploaded them all a while ago and now that I am finally posting them I just keep deleting.  There were probably three times as many as I am posting.
All that picture taking and I made a shirt too.  All with out getting any on my clothes or my phone.  That is pretty impressive for me!
                                                                    Jake's fingers.
                                           I bet you can't guess what colors Anika's shirt has!
                                       Don't worry Ben isn't in pain.  I just caught him before the smile. :)

Right here: __________, is were the pictures of us wearing them should be. Picture us at Pisgah National Forest near the river or a waterfall, because we were going to wear them there but it rained so we didn't go. Try to use your imagination...........They came out pretty cool right? :)

#HubCity #LoveWhereYouLive

When Allen met up with the rest of the Powell's in Sparkle City we decided it was time to show off the town and he wanted to go to The Beacon.  We went there for breakfast but Sam decided to skip right to lunch and try an "A Plenty".

Now they can say they have been there and done that!  It is really a legendary place to go more than being a really amazing restaurant. It is good a couple times a year because the grease will kill you if you eat it more than that!

Next we headed downtown to take in a few sights. Hub City is a bike friendly town.  We didn't rent them we just played on them for a few minutes.

But lets not get crazy here!  It was hot and we needed to take an epic "Love Where You Live" picture.
But first lets take a minute to check out Old Glory and the SC state flag, which is the coolest state flag. No offense to the 49 other states, but seriously you know ours is the best.
                     Oh wait!  One more of all the grand kids for Grammie/Nee.
Here it is.  I love this wall.  I really need to take my little family and get a picture in front of it.

And then, in slow motion...as you look at the next few photos, is the epic jump.

 I love you Sam, but I am sorry to say you were being a PTPP.  Everyone else was feeling it though.

 And of course the jump is followed by the automatic "look at each other and laugh" pictures.
I want to give a shout out to the genius who made the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone so amazing that it can take burst shots and really capture the moment.  And thank you Spartanburg for being so cool...but really, unbearably hot at the same time. :)
