June's Misc. Fergy Sightings

NOTE: I have so many posts to catch up on don't forget to hit Older Posts at the bottom to see all our fun we've had the is summer so far!

June has been lot of fun here in the new Fergy home. We had read a TON of books and have partied so hard the kiddos just drop down for naps where ever the stop moving.
We have had tried to re dedicate our selves to more fun FHE (Family Home Evening) and the kiddos have LOVED dressing up and playing all sorts of games. Here we dressed up and reenacted Daniel in the Lions Den.
We had the opportunity to travel up for a cousins wedding, which the kiddos loved because if the park like location and the fact the the bride-Lucy, let the girls have their own mini bouquets of flowers to take home.
Cory and I had some fun dates. We got to meet the man of steel and watch his new movie for free, treats included. WOOHOO! We also watched the new Les Meserables and part took of some European treats, one of our favorite kids of dates, yummy food and our own couch and no having took for a sitter.
We hit a milestone in our marriage last month when we fit two cars that we actually own in one spot. Usually we only owned one car or if we did own two one was in the garage or drive way and one had to be parked down the street, so having the garage finally cleaned out enough to part 2 cars in it was the stuff of our dreams. 
For fathers day we got a little creative this year and made Cory some stepping stones with all of our hand prints in them. We also got him an extra fuzzy blanket that he coveted from the wedding gift we have to Lucy.
In June my mom had to break down finally and get prescription sun glasses and luckily for me she had about a dozen different pairs of glasses she sent me after my own pair finally broke even after all my jury rigging to hold them together and the kiddos didn't let my new fun box of glasses go un-noticed.
We also had lots of time to play and dress-up; we even finally broke out the new lawn more toy Josh got back in Christmas. We had our cousin Afton and Chip hang with us for a sleep over which was new a pretty exciting for the wee ones.
I just had to include this last pic of Cami, because it is one of the cutest ones I have even taken of her, she is usually so fast paced, all her pics are of the back of her or are grumpy because I made her stop running around long enough to take a pic.
We have had a pretty fun month and I hope all the fun continues all summer long!

Junes' Summer Fun Calendar

To break up the long days of summer I created a fun summer program and we haven't always followed it perfectly, but we have done a lot of it! 

Movie Madness Monday- Movie & Treat
Story Time Tuesdays- Read Books with Cousins
What's Fun Wednesday- Make a Craft
Thoughtful Thursdays- Library Day

Making Play-dough:
One of the kiddos most favorite days of activities is Movie Madness Monday where we watch a movie and then make a themed treat with it.
Making smores and watching the Lorax (some of our smores where even orange):
Making Homemade Blue Slurpee & watching the Smurfs:
Making dog bone sugar cookies & watching Lady and the Tramp:
These have been just a few of our adventures. We have also done some pretty fun story times with cousins, but for some reason I never take pics, oh well. I am trilled we have a couple more months of all the fun left still!

Shoe Fly don't Bother Me

In the end of June Grandma Fergy held another one of her awesome Grand kiddo parties, this time the theme was a Bug Party.
We started by reading some bug stories and putting on the sun block. It was about 100 for the high that day so we spent the whole time in our cooler swim suits.
We then traveled over to some shade and painted some rocks to look like bugs. Well, Phoebe was the only one of my kiddos to do that the rest of my kiddos just painted the rocks fun colors and then glued googly eyes on it.
We had some fun relays involving catching butterflies (not real ones) with nets and swatting bugs with GINORMOUS fly swatters.
We had a bug dig where all the kiddos had to dig in the pile of dirt to find all the bugs. The kiddos had a lot of fun doing this even my youngest nephew Chip got in on all the fun.
We reenacted 3 little fogs on the log jumping into the poo where it was nice and cool with all the cousins.
Our last real game was to take water squirters and squirt all the bugs off the walls like mini exterminators.
Following that we lined them all up and put them all in "spider webs" of silly string, which I think was Phoebe's most favorite part of the day and she still talks about it.
I have to say the most amazingly themed lunch was my absolutely most favorite part of the party. I took lots of pics of it all and you should take the time to read all of it, it was way cute/clever.
It wouldn't be a grandma party if she did give the kiddos cute party themed take home prizes.
My kiddos always have so much fun at the parties we have and I am trilled to have Grandma Fergy and lots of cousins so close for the kids to enjoy so many fun parties!
