2014 Blue Jeans Week 24

A nice week of summer this week.  Nothing major happened, no big activities.  Just enjoying our summer days.  Here is a look at our week. . .
Our family and one of the cute sister missionaries serving in our area from our church.  She is from Tonga, and we love her!

Paracord or survival bracelets are the big thing in our house right now.  Mr J has quite a collection of colors which he has all laid out on the floor, and Ben helped him make this handy wooden stand to make the bracelets on.  

Ben experimented with a cookie recipe tonight.  He crushed up candy canes and put them in our regular chocolate chip recipe with dark chocolate chips.  They were pretty good!

For the past 2 weeks this cute girl has been staying with us.  She is Miss O's best friend who moved a long ways away last year.  This summer we made a plan to get them together.  So she stayed at our house for a while and went to girls' camp with us and then today I drove these 2 many hours to meet her dad so Miss O could spend some time at her house.  It has been so fun to have these two together again!  We have sure missed her!

A beautiful, calm summer's evening and Mr J got out the bubbles for fun.

Miss E got to learn how to mow the lawn all by herself.

Ben and I had a date night and went to an outdoor summer band concert.  The weather was beautiful--actually bordering on cold and I needed a jacket.  We enjoyed an ice cream social, the music, and just being together.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great week!  Come back often!

  1. Yay for date night. It looks like a great evening. Love that picture of Mr J and the bubbles--perfect summer fun. That's so great Miss O could reconnect and spend so time with her friend. It's so sad when the good ones move away. That happens to my Justin all the time. Looks like everyone is enjoying their summer. Hope more good things are to come.
