It was a great night, and it was so fun being outside in the evening without freezing or having to wear a jacket!!!
Yay for summer!

These are the tutorials:
I'd love to be able to sell these for a bit of extra cash after I get more experience!
But when there are lots of bored little boys at your house something that can take up hours at a time starts sounding pretty good! I am grateful that I still have that Monopoly game...

Ethan playing ladderball. I was lucky to get this shot, he kept running from me when I had the camera out.
Julia roasting marshmallows.
Note Julia's BYU hat and shirt-- Aunt Char complimented her on them and she said "Dad plays for them", lol, and when Aunt Char told her that she went to school there Julia said, "You played basketball?" Apparently BYU is just a school for sports in Julia's eyes, and when Dad goes to play basketball at the church on Thursday nights he plays for BYU.
Thanks everyone for a great night!

Laminate floor cleaner
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup rubbing alcohol
1/3 cup white vinegar
3 drops liquid dishwashing soap
5-10 drops lemon essential oils (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients in a clean spray bottle.
2. Spray sparingly on laminate floors and mop up. (I use a microfiber mop.)
3. The rubbing alcohol helps speed up the drying process.
And a few happenings... (Sorry the blog has been so random lately!)
Not too much has been going on around here. On Monday we had my family birthday dinner in the canyon. The weather was perfect, and the kids had tons of fun running around. We barbequed and had cake at Mom and Dad's after. Thanks for a fun evening everyone!
Ethan had Scout Daycamp on Thursday. He wasn't super excited to go, especially since he had to be at the church at 6:30am. We were able to pull him out of bed so he could make it and he ended up having a great time. They got to go on a raft, make crafts, shoot a bb gun, and he got to buy some fun things at the Scout store. He is super excited for the next time they get to go.
Derek is working from home for the next few months while his office in Midvale is being renovated. Our home office where he works is set up right next to the playroom, so we'll see how that goes, especially since it's summer break!
The kids are in swimming lessons and are enjoying it. Julia saw her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs Wendt, at the pool on Wednesday and she was very excited about that.
We're heading to the Hendriksen reunion tonight, so hopefully we'll see lots of you there!
Quentin was heading to the reunion yesterday when he got in an accident and rolled his truck and trailer. I don't know many details about the accident, but he and Sharisse are both fine. They won't be able to make it to the reunion now though.
Hope everyone's having a great summer!

Fathers Are Wonderful People
by Helen Steiner Rice
Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should...
For, somehow, Father seems to be
The man who pays the bills,
While Mother binds up little hurts
And nurses all our ills...
And Father struggles daily
To live up to "his image"
As protector and provider
And "hero of the scrimmage"...
And perhaps that is the reason
We sometimes get the notion,
That Fathers are not subject
To the thing we call emotion,
But if you look inside Dad's heart,
Where no one else can see
You'll find he's sentimental
And as "soft" as he can be...
But he's so busy every day
In the grueling race of life,
He leaves the sentimental stuff
To his partner and his wife...
But Fathers are just wonderful
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolades of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...
And like Our Heavenly Father,
He's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.
We ended up having to go twice because the kids weren't exactly cooperative the first time:
But we persevered and ended up with some great shots.
Thanks Mom and Melodie for your help!

Tonight we went here:
to a Salt Lake Bees game, it was Derek's office's summer party. We had dinner there and then got to hang out and watch the game. The weather was perfect, it is finally getting warm (and yes, I'll miss this cooler weather in another month but right now I'm ready for it to be summer).
Derek kept hinting that my birthday was somehow going to be announced at the game so when he finally relented to the kids' constant whining for ice cream I heard my name over the loud speaker. There, on the scoreboard, was "Happy Birthday Rosie Borsky, Love, Derek, Ethan, and Julia". How fun! Too bad Derek and the kids missed it! I wish I had been quick enough to get a picture of it, but these will have to suffice.
They serve ice cream in this little plastic baseball cap, isn't it cute?!
