Summer fun!




So I know we have year round school, which is a good thing!  Don't mistake my tone.  I LOVE year round school but if you are looking for some fun activities I have a few suggestions.  Okay I only have one but I am going to tell you what we are going to be doing this summer despite school.
We are doing swimming lessons at Gene Fullmer Fitness Center.  The pool is indoors and the classes are very small!  Hooray!  Well it is probably because of the economy but either way!
Also for school age kids at Allstar Lanes on 7800 South and Redwood Road bowling is free 9am-6pm for the first game.  You only have to pay for the shoe rental.  Today all three kiddos and I bowled one full game for about $6.50.  I thought that was pretty good.  They had shoes small enough for Katie-bug.  It was quite fun and cheap.  I guess if you have your own bowling shoes it is even cheaper AND if you want to do more than one game it is only $1.50 per game.  Just an idea.  Enjoy!

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
