The Cousin's party and More

Tyler and I thought it would be fun to host a little party for the kids. We sent the invitations a few days before and made a plan.  We started off the night with fun food.  Veggies displayed as a garden scene, watermelon cut with cookie cutters, pizza bread, little smokies and lemonade.  They ate a ton so I am guessing they liked it!
After dinner and a quick clean up we did an art project.  I know they all loved this and it was fun watching them work together.  One of the twins dropped all of her beads and they all got down and helped her pick them up.  Later Kyle helped Spencer with his because he was already done.  They have moments like all kids but they are such good sweet kids and fun to watch together.
We had our fancy pudding cups after that.  They were huge and I think only Kyle made it to the bottom but they all enjoyed it.
As a kid we used to play this silly "spin the bottle game" (there is no kissing involved).  So Tyler and I made up a bunch of silly things and played it with the kids.  They loved it!!! Their favorite was prank calling their aunts and uncles and Grandpa.  Some of the other silly things they did were push a ball across the floor with their nose, eat a granola bar with no hands, arm wrestle, sing, crab walk, wear a funny outfit etc.
It was getting pretty  late when the game was over.  We watched a little bit of a movie then took them home.  We are already making plans for another party one of these days!!!

The boys have really been enjoying Adele lately. They have found ways to include her in a lot of their play.  They seem to be either having the greatest time with her or else they are building barricades to keep her away from their toys.
The party was Friday night.  Saturday we got up and hurried off to the temple.  I went in and when I came out I discovered that the boys had been very creative while I was gone.
Then we spent the afternoon at a health fair and we even took a tour of the darigold factory.  I didn't take any pictures but it was pretty lame.  At least it was a free tour. 

We sure have been keeping busy around here!
