I started the long Holiday weekend, by trying these things out. Have you heard of them? They are actually pretty cool, they are stickers, that you heat with a blow dryer. Pretty simple, after the first one the next 9 nails went pretty fast, and the best part is, you don't have to wait for dry time, so I was done in 20 minutes. Next time it will probably take me less time than that, since I'll know what I'm doing.
The finished product. I like them, but I don't think I would use this as my main source of doing my nails. Yesterday I did a TON of cooking/washing dishes and they stayed on, just the tips were starting to wear down, part of that I think is that I don't think I totally put them on correctly. Next time should be better. I bought some skull ones that I can't wait for Halloween to roll around. I personally would only use these for things like this, not for solid colors. And that's my review.
Friday my aunt and uncle were having a party at their house to kick off the festitivies. My uncle gets VIP passes to the fireworks. Love having family in high up places :)
They hired some taco guys to make the food, yummy!
Mini Fox LOVES the pool..
Ice cream social time...
Baby Fox's favorite cousin...and they happened to match too, totally not planned.
After swimming and eating we headed to the fireworks show.
|He wasn't thrilled that I was taking a picture of him, lol. Yep we were VIP on "The Hill", lol.|
Tailgating before the show
|Cousin #4 would kill me if she knew I posted this...I really like it mostly cause her daughter (cutie #3) was posing exactly like her mama.|
All of the cuties! We were only missing 1 of them.
My dad brought some headphones for Baby Fox, last year I had to cover his ears the whole time, he thought the headphones were so cool.
Firetruck stopped by
Mr. somehow wrangled Baby Fox into his lap a good 30 minutes before the show started...
Best photo bomb ever :)
And then he somehow ended up with both kids
But eventually I got Mini Fox
She was super tired and spent most of the show like this
The fireworks were pretty awesome.
We spent the night with Cousin #5 and his family. His son wakes up at 6am...let me tell ya, that's early! The boys waited paitently for an appropriate time to go to Mini Fox up. Finally at 8:45 we told them they could go get her...they ran.
Then we had breakfast
And cousin #4 and her family came over
They brought over this race track that you use your iPhone with and it someone stays on the paper...I don't know how it works...but it's pretty cool.
|Cutie #1, Auntie Sarah you take too many pictures, haha|
We went grocery shopping when we got home and had a pretty low key night.
Sunday was spent going to church and cooking a lot.
Baby Fox comes up to Mr. and says Daddy, swaddle me!
After naps, Mini got some water table time, and Baby Fox and Mr. went swimming.
It was a great weekend, although with MNI last night going late and still having to get ready for today, I'm on tired girl!
Tomorrow I'm going to have the pictures I took of the kids for our monthly photo shoot. Stay tuned!
and with Bella & Lisa
