Lipstick and balloons

So, Riley and Eliza found my hooker red lipstick. I asked Riley why he decided to smear it all over his face. He said that they were playing dress up and needed makeup. Riley was a a princess and apparently Eliza was a chicken. I took the kids to see "Mr. Twister" a guy who makes balloon animals. Mr. Twister made a sea turtle and donated it to the library so everyone could enjoy it.

July 4

Riley and I went strawberry picking with the Hayes. I think we picked for an hour. Riley worked the whole time and filled up his little bucket one and a half times. Then I tried to make jam out of the berries. My first attempt was a disaster. Smoke and burt strawberries everywhere. I felt like a big fat failure.
My second try wasn't as bad. I ended up with 3 1/2 jars of moderately runny but eatable strawberry Jam. There's a first time for everything, I guess.
