April's Birthday VisitApril wanted to do a girls weekend for her birthday, so she drove up with my mom and we hung out. We ate at China Star and had shakes from Rocky's. We shopped at her favorite Dollar Tree, and Hope Avenue (which closed down only a few weeks later), and D.I.. In Vernal we ate at Don Pedro's. My mom and girls joined April in doing facial masks that foamed, and manicures. We also had a fun regency tea party and ball.
|We took April to the Mexican Food place in Vernal called Don Pedros. She and Amara recreated the picture in the lobby so well.|
Cooking Challenge Entries
|The s'mores were made with mini marshmallows that we roasted over a little candle and sandwiched between mini fudge striped cookies.|
Pi Day Contest Entries
Because of the pandemic restrictions, our library did an online contest for Pi Day. Amara and I decided to enter a couple pies. Amara made a cookies and cream Oreo pie. I made a lattice-topped apple pie. We both did a great job and we both won! We got Amazon gift cards! Truly, I think what gave us the upper-hand was the lighting in our pictures. So many pictures of people's pies were dark which makes the food look unappealing. Since judges were not even tasting the pies, it was important to make the pictures look their best.
Other Good Times
|Amara got a cute basket given to her from our friend, Iris, that she put on her bike using zip ties. We would often help Iris with her chickens when she would go out of town.|
|My TEAMS for TEENS class continued strong. We enjoyed playing games with other homeschooled teens.|
|Amara got into painting nails. I loved the galaxy nails she did on me.|
