Making Fonuts

It was a long weekend and I forgot to post yesterday so this week I will be posting at random times to catch up!  Last Saturday was the day before Ariel left for camp.  Camp had been posting pictures online.  Were we really sending her away again?
Dani came over for a quick cheer session.  

And to say her goodbyes.  When Ariel gets back, Dani will already be at Penn State.  
When we were in LA, we had really good gluten free donuts.  The company has a kit you can make at home.  So I did!
They even gave me the box to put them in.  
Some other flavors.
Ariel met 4 of her camp friends to get their nails done.  

They got the camp colors.  Too cute.  
Haircut for the boys.  
We hung with Ariel all day.  
That night, we went to the Ali's house to hang in the hot tub.

Pork Belly Burnt Ends Before Camp

Last Thursday, Ariel had dinner and ice cream with Melissa.  They all came to drop her off and say goodbye.

Aden and I had haircuts.  
Noah built this in the bath.  

On Friday, Ariel wanted me to make pork belly burnt ends.  
So I did!
Wow, they came out amazing!
Best thing ever!  Giant chunks of bacon smoked for 5 hours with brown sugar, butter and honey.  What is there not to like?

We went up to the school.  

Is she really leaving us for 7 weeks?
Aunt Bev came by.  Have a great weekend!

Party at Funzilla

A quick post for your Thursday.  Last Wednesday, the boys waited for the camp bus and Ariel waited for them to leave so she could go to cheer camp.  

Ariel's coach Serina had foot surgery.  She's not cleared to do private lessons yet but wanted to see how far she could go with Ariel. I think she was moving around great!

That night, the twins had Kyleigh's party at Funzilla.  Believe it or not, Eli is tired of Funzilla.  He usually can't wait to go to these places.  

They ran all around.  
Then it was pizza and cake time.  

Fun times!

First Day of Camp

It's Tuesday night.  We are still waiting for pictures of Ariel from today.  It was a beautiful day, hopefully she had fun.  The boys did well at their camp.

Last Monday was the first day of camp for the 3 boys.  Back to Southampton Summer Day Camp.  Aden is a second year CIT.  They were excited to go.  
This is the first time my kids are taking a school bus anywhere.  
Have fun boys!

Then I took Ariel to cheer camp.  
Coach Serina was back from her foot surgery.  For some reason Ariel was nervous about going back to Airborne but she loved it.  
The boy's came posts pictures all day long.  Here they are having lunch.  
That night, Ariel helped me cook.  

Then we built some shelves.  

Good job guys.  
On Tuesday, Mark and Melissa came to say goodbye to Ariel.  
I made a smoked rotisserie chicken.  

We had piano and guitar.  
The kids played while I cooked.  

I also smoked some shrimp.  It was all yummy.  
Ariel is going to miss Honey the most!
