My try at Industrial Strength Bubbles! {pictures}

Have you seen the recipes for those Industrial Strength Bubbles floating around out there? {Get it? Floating..haha!} πŸ˜‰
I found a recipe on Pinterest and knew that I definitely wanted to give it a try. My girls love blowing bubbles. I do, too. I mean, who doesn’t love bubbles?

This recipe called for 6 cups of water, 1 cup of corn syrup and 2 cups of regular strength Joy dish soap.
I could not find Joy dish soap anywhere, so I bought a different brand. I also realized that I bought ultra dish soap and had to tweak the recipe a bit. I ended up adding more corn syrup to the mix. read more

My sunflowers are finally blooming!

You just don’t even know how very excited I am. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers, I absolutely love them. As you may have read in a previous post, I planted them, thinking they were going to be {a lot} smaller. They are dwarf sunflowers, but still pretty big! πŸ˜‰ I am however really excited about having these big beautiful sunflowers in my garden! πŸ˜€

Here are the 2 that are blooming the fastest. I believe there are 7 in total, but I will have to go count again to be sure. πŸ™‚ read more

Playtime at the park!

Elmwood Park is a really nice park that is near our house, and it’s walking distance! Imagine our surprise the day we went and found something new there. A zipline {for kids, of course!} Well, I guess you would call it a zipline, right? You decide. πŸ˜‰

Jump and go! read more

Our night out–Night to Unite

Every year our neighborhood has something called “Night to Unite”, where the neighborhood comes together for a night out of fun. I’m sure this is something that happens all over, although the names for it may differ. πŸ˜‰

I just wanted to share a few photos from our evening. It was at Elmwood Park here in West Fargo; walking distance from our house. πŸ™‚ read more

Both of my girls had a fun time! read more

Today Jacey started “Life on the Prairie” day camp. At this camp, Jacey will step back in time and experience school in a 1-room schoolhouse & learn about Native American traditions, as well as experience a pioneer school lesson, make fry bread and hand crafted items.

It’s a 2 day, day camp, and it is at Bonanzaville. We love Bonanzaville. You may have seen my older posts about our visits there, and I have a lot of photos on Flickr as well. read more

At the Chahinkapa Zoo {Wahpeton}

Earlier in the week, Monday to be exact, I took the girls to the Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton, ND. It’s is just under an hour drive there. I happen to like this zoo better than our “small” zoo in town. The Wahpeton Zoo has a few more exotic animals, which we love! πŸ™‚ We had a fun time there, although it was super hot that day. We packed a lunch and headed out! Here are just a few photos from our time at the zoo….

This zoo is laid out nicely..lots of paths to walk… read more
