Jurassic Park Rangers
And discovered one in our own front yard
We had tea parties
And water balloon fights
We found Nemo (and Dory!)
We met penguins
We met a baby foal
We grew a garden
We’ve released butterflies
We went to camp
Golf cart rides & ice cream cones
We became Oceaneers
Explorers of the deep blue sea
We went Under the Sea
We went to the circus
Followed the yellow brick road
We watched movies
Dad got a new BBQ
We were “Incredible”
We were sharks
We swam… a lot
We had a lemonade stand
We went fishing
We put our feet in the sand
We’ve Play Doh’d
We have been sharks, bears & dinosaurs (oh my!)
We’ve been to space
We’ve been to Toy Story Land
We made slime
We watched puppet shows
We watched a Sunset
I’m sad our T-ball Spring Season is coming to an end, but I did get to make these super cute shoes that I will wear for every season from now on!
Bonus! They can be worn to professional games as well (Go Rays!)
So, start with a pair of (relatively) clean white canvas sneakers. They can be Keds, Converse or- if you’re cheap like me- Target brand!
I bought red puffy fabric paint from Hobby Lobby for 97 cents each. I bought one red and one red glitter. I ended up only using the red- no glitter.
Follow the lines/ laces on the shoe to create a baseball-like affect!
** Also, some cleaning tips! As you can see I cleaned mine in between making them and wearing them!
Toothbrush, toothpaste, water, color safe bleach.
Let air dry. DO NOT put in dryer!
Wear to the ball field!
But it’s not.
Sometimes I yell. Sometimes I curse.
Sometimes I’m mad at my husband. Sometimes he’s mad at me.
Sometimes he has a bad day at work. Sometimes I have bad days.
Those cruise pictures we took? We spent most of that cruise telling at our kids because they wouldn’t go to camp.
Those camping pictures? Emma refused to nap and I drove her around in the truck, then slammed on the brakes and yelled at her.
Our kids don’t always hold hands and hug.
They fight. They pull hair.
They scratch. They bite.
They’re not perfect. And neither am I.
So, don’t be fooled by our Christmas card.
I wish my life was as perfect as my Christmas card.
