PAINT THE PICNIC TABLE RED!

Today's project---paint the munchkin picnic table fire engine red!

No more splinters in the "tails".  The g-babies are going to love it.  Thanks again for the old furniture donation Aunt Shannon.  It'll be perfect for our backyard cook-out tomorrow night.



Project start---an old donated children's picnic table, splinters and all.










Project finished.  I used fire engine red and rubbed on a dark antique glaze.  Even Queen Carmex the cat loves it.  No more splinters in the tails!

BULL SHARKS---OKLAHOMA AQUARIAUM

Forrest suggested we go to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks yesterday, and I'm so glad we did.  The exhibits were just breath taking, featuring marine life from deadly stonefish, to brilliant, electric blue, and eye popping yellow tropical fish, to beavers and otters that give a fun  show as they dive and flip under water.
 
Most impressive was the bull shark exhibit which is the largest collection of bull sharks in the United States---fifteen in all!  To stand under the acrylic tunnel and watch the beautiful sharks swim gracefully overhead was just an incredible experience.  Surprisingly peaceful, and very educational.
 
If you're a local Oklahoman, or get to the Tulsa-Jenks area it's well worth the while to take a couple hours to visit The Oklahoma Aquarium.  You might even get to pet some baby sharks and stings rays like we did!

Shabby-Chic Paint Day~


Thanks to cousins Ella and Avery my grand daughter Clara Jane inherited their old vanity, or "banity" as she calls them.

I re-did it this morning in a shabby-chic style to go with her adorable, folk-artsy bedroom.  

I wiped down the old piece, (lots of red lipstick smeared here and there)  then Kilzed it.  I painted it a Robin's Egg blue, then antiqued the finish with my trusty walnut stain, and gave it two coats of polyurethane so our little Diva's new shades of lip gloss can be wiped away with ease.  I finished the stool with the same shade of blue and added a warm orange floral center with highlight to go with all the sweet birds and flowers that decorate her room.

All of Clara's princess gear will fit nicely in the big drawers...I started her out with a set of play pearls.  Every Princess should have her own "banity." 



The old vanity with a coat of Kilz started---great to cover all the lipstick stains and fingernail polish.















Princess Clara's refurbished vanity---let the beauty begin!

















While I had the paint out, I gave these mini school chairs that I picked up for $5.00 a fresh coat of paint and a sunflower each too, of course---Skylar's going to put them out in her backyard for her mini's~perfect for toddlers.

PLAYDOUGH AND SOCIAL SECURITY

According to my four year old grand son, I should be collecting social security.  I love hanging out with little people!
 
We made Kool-Aid Play-dough again this afternoon and it was marvelous and tropical punch-y.
 
It literally takes less than five minutes to make.  The kids love it.
 
Here's the recipe:  1 cup flour, 1/2 cup boiling water, 1/4 cup salt, 1 tblsp. vegetable oil, and one packet any flavor Kool-Aid.  Just boil the water and pour over the dry ingredients.  Stir together, knead and play! 

Even the toddlers can help!  Clara Jane and Landon were thrilled with the process and results.  It made a really great birthday cake! (For my "67th" Birthday according to my monkey grand son)~

SWIMMING LESSONS WITH MRS JODY---AND TANS WITH SKY!

Oh boy, oh boy!  It's finally that time of year again.  I'm booking in for swimming lessons that will begin June 3rd!

I'm so excited to have my fishies back in the water.  I made the announcement I was taking students for the summer schedule this morning, and I've already booked over 25 young ones in for lessons. 

Teaching children the skill of swimming, and more importantly water safety, is one of my favorite things to do---extremely  rewarding.

Skylar will have her Sky Tan booth set up, so you busy mamas can stay and get a gorgeous Sky Tan-spray tan while your kiddos swim with me! 

What a fun summer we have planned.

*And please remember as you travel to the lake, river, ponds and open up your pools this season to watch your children like a hawk.  Supervision is the biggest tool for drowning prevention---big groups and family cookouts can be one of the most difficult times to keep an eye on your child, because you may think someone else is watching them.  Never take your eyes off a child where a body of water is present, and talk to them about water safety every day! 


                               Mrs Jody is ready for her fishies to return !
