Summer of Ella! (week 5)

I have been so behind on blogging! If it wasn't for Instagram, I don't think I could remember what I did last week. That's why I love having everything documented on the blog. Now if I could just keep it up...
For week 5 of the Summer of Ella we had a lot of fun! We started it off with a fun craft I saw on Pinterest. We had seen Despicable Me 2 the week before so we made a Minion bowling set.

Thanks to our juiceaholic McKenna, it took no time to save up some plastic bottles. We poured a little rice in the bottom of each one so it would be a little harder to knock them down.

I first spray painted them all yellow.

Then after about 15 minutes I sprayed the bottom half blue.

We thought it would be fun to add a crazy purple one too. That idea came to me after I bought the spray paint so acrylic paint had to do.

I downloaded a free printable here for the eyes. We taped those on and drew the mouth using a sharpie.

On Thursday Bob was post call so he got to join in on our Summer of Ella fun! Lucky for him that day was lunch at Chuck E. Cheese! It's one of Ella's favorite places and one of Bob's least favorites. He was a great sport though!

This horse was Ella's favorite. She rode it over and over.

For close to 500 tickets, Ella went home with her very own mini Chuck E. Cheese stuffed animal. Such a fun week!

Hey!

My name is Kendall and i'm a race director for Color Me Rad. We have a race coming to the great state of Lubbock TX October 19 at the Mackenzie Park 601 Municipal Drive. We are reaching out to locals bloggers to spread the love. Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, rad blasters, color mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning. Needless to say this will be the most unique thing you do all summer. We would love it if you helped up out by posting a blurb on your blog or website about the race so that others can share in the world wide experience that is taking over the nation. Check out the website http://www.colormerad.com. Please contact me with any and all questions! I would love to see you there. Have a rad day!!!


-Kendall
