Before the Trek

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Someone is pretty excited for the trek.  She really wanted a dress over the idea of  a skirt and shirt, which was my idea.  We wen to the pattern store and this is what we came away with.  With  my limited sewing skills and a pattern that didn’t really come in her sized, either too big or much too small.  It really was a miracle it fits.  (Well actually the pattern has draw strings everywhere, so it actually can fit various sizes, but I was worried since we didn’t have a correct size for her.  Any way thanks to You Tube videos and some advice from a friend it came together.  Phewwwwww, what a relief.  

Sad thing is after spending 3 days in this, she will not want to ever wear it again.




No she is not going barefoot.


I love her water bottle holder, we bought one for each family member before our trip to Yellowstone.  So glad we still have them.  I think it will come in handy.


Hawaiian and not so Hawaiian

Today we are getting ready for a big Hawaiian birthday party.  Little A decided she wanted the same party as her big sister at that same age.  So we are getting ready and guess who is all dressed up?  Yup the cat and dog.  One was all for it and the other not so much.


Look at that smile



Had to add some bracelets


I am not sure about this grass skirt, but she liked it.


Now the hula dance was more than she could appreciate


not thrilled


Trying to chew her way out.  She won and I removed it.  The kids tried to remove it, but she was threatening to scratch them.
