I love this week's prompt - we get to choose what to take pics of - what are we focusing on this week. And this week and next week I am focusing on being an aunt - my niece and nephew are up for a two week visit from Oklahoma. Mom and I only get to see them in the summer time so we are making the most out of it.
Hold on - lots of pics of the kids and what we have done this week.
We usually pick up the kids, from my brother, at the half way point of St. Louis. This year mom got a hotel so we could stay overnight and chat with my brother while the kids played in the pool. Seriously, how can they not turn into prunes after being in the water for about three hours??!!!! Sunday was our drive back to Indiana and then crash when we got back to mom's house.

|I love how Kaitlyn is trying to suck it in so the bubble doesn't|
|Love the expression on her face|
|I love how open Skyler is here - he hates to have his |
picture taken and any that I can get I love!
|The bubble is going to get him!|

One night we played corn hole and I had to sneak this picture in without Skyler knowing (love that the phones now have cameras that can be reversed - he thought I was taking pictures of mom).
|I think this is when he got a bean bag through the hole - 3 points|
I think Wednesday night mom and I had to get out in the garage and move everything from the side of the wall so the electrician could get in to work. While we were moving things we got out our piles of second beads (beads I made or mom made that we won't sell). Both Kaitlyn and Skyler had a blast going through all of the beads.

I think Tuesday is when we went putt-putt in Fishers, IN. Needless to say we thought everything was inside and it wasn't. It was bloody freaking hot!!!!! Skyler and I lasted one game and then we went inside. Mom and Kaitlyn lasted 12 holes (out of 18) of the second game before they came inside to de-sweat. UGH - being hot no fun, but putt-putt is!
|Kaitlyn took her sweat shirt off after this picture was taken|
On Thursday we all went to All Fired Up - Paint Your Own Pottery. Mom and I have heard of this place but have never gone so we thought this would be a fun thing to do with all four of us. I have to say Skyler did very well - he was very patient waiting for Kaitlyn to finish her master piece.

Now, the finale for this week. We went to Fair Oaks Dairy Farm - I don't think we will do this next year because the kids didn't seem to enthusiastic this time (boy how they grow so fast!). Though they did love the ice cream.
|Skyler didn't catch me taking this picture - Kaitlyn is too|

So, that was this week. It should be interesting to see what is in store for next week. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what my focus was for this week. Head on over to The Studio Sublime and check out everyone else.
