Dog Sitting

This week I am watching my cousins' dog Sadie. She is a Catonpoo. Catons are part of the Bichon family. She is part caton and part poodle. I got her yesterday and I will have her till next Sunday.

She is so adorable . Sadie usually has a little more hair on her but she recently got a short haircut. I am having lots of fun with her. I took her to the park yesterday. She chased some baby ducks into the pond. It's going to be hard giving her back after 9 days of being together.

Sarah's house

Wednesday I went to my friend Sarah's house . We had fun, riding the golf cart, going in the hot tub, swinging on the swing, and playing with her new dog. We didn't go in the pool cause it was a cool day and it looked like it was going to rain.
Thanks Sarah for a fun day!


My new haircut

This past Tuesday I got my haircut shorter. Here are the before and after pictures:


It feels so much better. Tell me what you think.

My cousin Levi and I going on another slide.

We had a good day. The weather wasn't that warm but it was still fun. Tomorrow we may have a record for the lowest temperature . I think it's only supposed to be 63 degrees I think. Today was mid 70's how crazy is this? But I am thankful it's not super hot.

Art in the Park

Today my mom and I went to Art in the Park. It is a tradition. Every year we go and there are artists that bring all their work. We enjoy walking around and looking at all of the different things. I always look forward to the doll clothing made for American Girl dolls. It is a lot cheaper than the AG store. Their clothes can be found at
I bought 3 outfits and 3 pairs of shoes. The crocs for the dolls are so cute. Here are a few pictures:

Unfortunately, my camera battery ran out so I couldn't get anymore pictures. There was a painted wall hanging that I saw that I would like to make for my room. They were very expensive but I think I can make it for much less. I am going to give it a try. I will post a picture when It's done.

Many years we go with friends and family to the art show. That is always fun but I really look forward to spending some time with just my mom and I. We always enjoy going back to are favorite artists to see their craft and what new ideas they've come up with. My mom likes pottery so we always see our favorites. I enjoy looking at the jewlery, art work for my room, handmade purses, we always have to get the freshly roasted cinnamon almonds . It is tradition . The photography, music, and homemade soaps are also fun. This year Kashi had stations set up where we had free cereal, bars, and snacks to try as well as cooking demonstrations and yoga . We got free Kashi bags and treats to take home. It is very tasty,organic, and good for you. I did get a snow cone that was so HUGE it was overflowing, messy, but oh so nice on a hot day.

Sewing 101

Yesterday I took a sewing 101 class at Joann Fabrics with friends from church. We made a pillowcase. They all turned out nice. It was so easy to make. I was happy with the way mine came out. I am going to make another one so I can have a set for my room. I have decided to make bedding for my american girl doll trundle bed. It will be so fun to match with the pillows in my room. I will post the pictures when I make it. Hopefully I can make it next week. I have a quilting class tomorrow to finish a tote bag we are sewing. I am really enjoying sewing. I even repaired a couple pairs of shorts for my brother today on the machine.

We got there at 6:30 am and got our spot then headed to Panera for bagels and coffee/o.j. It was so much fun. We are heading to an old fashioned picnic at the park soon. Here are some pictures from the parade.

Bowling with family

Last night I went bowling with my family. If you haven't heard, you can go here to sign up for free bowling this summer at many bowling alleys. We had a lot of fun. Mom took the pictures but we didn't think some of them turned out that well.
