Easiest Carnival Game Ever!

I had to come up with a game
for today's Cub Scout Carnival
and this idea was a winner!
This is an unused emergency potty seat.
Put it on a 5 gallon bucket
 and you're almost done.
Get some toilet paper cores
with a little bit left on them,
put clear packing tape on 
so they are easy to handle
and don't unravel.
Our rolls flew into a couple of puddles,
it just added to the
gross factor of the game.
It was great.
It's harder than it looks
because the rolls are
So I had a brilliant thought late last night.
I'll give a tootsie roll for each one they get in.
They got 6 tries each.
Most kids only got 1 in.
They came to the booth a few times.
As I gave them the prize,
I said, "Here's your Tootise Roll Poop.  Enjoy!"
They would look at me and
 then it would sink in what I just said.
It was pretty funny.
Potty humor.
Boys love it.

A Perfect Summer's Eve


We enjoyed a perfect summer's eve this year. 
It was my son's open house for his recent wedding

He was married a few weeks before at the 
in South Jordan, Utah.  


We celebrated a few weeks later with 
family and friends in Idaho. 

The theme was yellow and vintage 
and sheets and wood. 


I never wanted the evening to end. 

Best Pinterest Idea: Jenga Blocks for guests to sign!!

It was a warm day when setting everything up 
but the evening had an ever slight breeze 
that made the garlands wiggle just perfectly. 

I had lots of help and, of course, 
I worked Corrie to the bone.  

And her kids. 
And my neighbors. 
And my own dear family.


 But it was all worth it and a wonderful memory.
