Small Wonders Wednesday

 I think this little guy qualifies as a small wonder.  I was standing at the window and this little guy flew up and sit very still while I took the screen off and photographed him.   God's creations are so neat.
I don't have anything exciting for this Small Wonders Wednesday,  too busy.   Sorry I missed Friday and Mondays post but we were getting ready for and then at camp meeting.   I will try to have a report and so photo's of what we have been up to on Friday.   Until then keeping having a great summer.

Small Wonders Wednesday

As mentioned in my previous post we have been enjoying s'mores this summer.   Well that is thanks to a handy-dandy fire pot I learned how to make on Pinterest( where else do we find ideas).    We have talked about a fire pit and looked at them but we always talk ourselves out of one.    I ran across this idea on pinterest and knew this was the solution to our problems.   
 The idea I found was for table top fire pots,  I used the same idea only on a larger scale.   I took a terracotta flower pot I had, lined it with heavy duty foil added match light charcoal and Ta-Da a fire pot.   The nice thing was all I had to buy was the charcoal and it was on sale and had fuel saver discounts(Hy-Vee perks),  so it was a very cheap and easy project.    I do not have a great picture of it but I think you get the idea,  so nice when you don't want to spend a lot of money.    I am thinking about trying to find a bigger pot and see what would happen if you burned small pieces of wood in it,  so it would give off a little more heat.  This one is great for roasting things but it would be nice to have a little heat for some of our cool Iowa nights.   Well hoped you enjoyed seeing my little project,  I would love to know if you have been making any fun this summer.

Mommy Moments Monday

We are having so much fun this summer,  hanging out on our front porch and back patio, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, blowing bubbles, doing sparklers and hoping to get the pool set up tomorrow.   Last summer I was pregnant with the twins and was so sick summer is just a blur, so I am living it up with my little family this year and so far we are having a fabulous time.
 I know I am partial but I think these three are pretty cute.
 This little girl is loving summertime, her skin is getting darker and the hair is getting lighter.
 Me and my love.   Taken by Piper,  thought is was pretty good seems how it was taken by a four year old. 
S'mores what a yummy summer treat.   Check back Wednesday to see a new diy project.

Small Wonders Wednesday ~ 6 Months Old

 The duo is 6 months old,  the are growing and changing everyday.   So in honor of them being 6 months and July 4th I attempted a photo shoot.   Let me tell you it is crazy trying to take their picture. 
 They are both doing great and each weigh 16 pounds.   Now that is a lot of weight for Mommy to carry and sometimes I have to carry both in carseats.   Makes me thankful for the times when I have a helper to go places with me.
We hope you all have a wonderful July 4th celebrating this great country of ours.

Mommy Moments Monday ~ Weekend Highlights

 Brenna and Blakes first time at the county fair,  I don't think they have come to a conclusion on what they thought about it.
This weekend was full of fun,  County Fair, VBS Program and Fireworks.   And of course we took advantage of them all.
