W.i.P. Wednesday {7/25/12}

I am getting SO close!!! finishing things. :) It's been quiet on the blog, which seems to be the case all around blog land lately, but that doesn't mean we haven't been having fun. We've been having LOTS of fun!!

Last weekend we drove to Waterloo with some good friends and went to a concert in the park with some world famous BBQ! Yum! I haven't laughed so much in a long time! I hope our *new* friends don't think I'm a weirdo. ;) lol. Then Saturday was Sumner Days and we went to the parade, the boys and I saw Brave in the $1 theater, (actually it's only 99 cents! Isn't that awesome? New releases for less than a buck!! We will be going to a lot of movies I think.) :) and a bunch of other stuff. I don't even remember. We've been in a heat wave the last few days and it's wiping my memory... it's SO. HOT! Luckily it's supposed to be over today.

OH! and Potty Training! Hunter is doing awesome! He picked Sunday to be his first day and he's doing fantastic! There are a few accidents still and power struggles are coming to a minimum! We are so proud of him! :) *The idea of going to preschool soon is a real motivation keeper!* The other day he asked me though, "When am I going to be done with underwear?" as if underwear was a phase like diapers. When I told him he'll be wearing underwear forever, and that his grandpa still wears underwear, his eyes got SO big. "Nooo." I told him maybe when he was 90 he would wear diapers again. He just laughed at that and thought I was silly. He's so funny.

Ok, I didn't mean for this to turn into such a family post, it was going to be all pictures, so anyway, here are the pictures! :)

Rainbow Me Happy Quilt
This quilt is so random. Had I wanted it to be "beautiful" I probably would have quilted it totally different, but I think the stars are so fun and hopefully something fun to look at and search for with the rainbow thread. The binding is covered in insects: grasshoppers, lady bugs, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, etc. I hope it will all make it fun to look at and use. :)
