We had cousins over the other day and they were wanting to play with the playdough!  So, we decided to make a couple new colors! I have tried probably 3 or 4 different Homemade Playdough Recipes with my boys.  I originally made homemade playdough to just have a fun activity to do with Nathan when…

We played hard this week! Monday started out with the park and then onto BB guns with some friends. Wednesday we were back at the park again visiting with some good friends who came into town! Thursday night we packed up and headed to CA for quick trip and Friday we were at Legoland! There…
