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 longer effective due to …

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned..... You…
