Dog Days

Dear Readers,
The Shrader Family has been doing all sorts of fun stuff lately...(Do you see those pictures?) We have been playing games, making rockets soar,watching movies, painting pictures out of puffy paint, making Toy Story 3 place mats, learning Spanish, swimming,(yes-Mason finally got that cast off!) Mom has been teaching me to sew with a machine,(not as easy as it looks..)and I've been trying to finish a cross-stitch I've been working on for-well- a while. Oh yeah--and we went out in public (astonishing-I know!) Wednesday to take Pluto to the Veterinarian! The Animal Hospital is one of the funnest places in the world,(to me) so we had a blast. Pluto doesn't get out and about in the car very much, and hence-forth was trembling and panting with excitement! And, for those of you made after my own heart, nothing is wrong with Pluto...he just needed some Vaccinations! We are going out again this afternoon. Toy Story Three is finally here! We are all very excited to see it, but Benjamin has read the director's blog and gone on the TS3 website so many times this past year I don't know what he's going to do after we see it! He knows so much info on it already I think he may know the ending! We are making lots of goodies tonight in honor of the movie. Mr.Prickly pants is a character of the movie, and we'll be making cupcakes with his face fashioned out of frosting and various candy on the top. Also, we'll bake some of Sheriff Woody's badges, and some Jessie cowgirl hats as well. (cookies!) Cate, Mom and I worked all last week on Rex the Dinosaur place mats, and we made some with Buzz Lightyear, a horse shoe (who could forget my favorite-Bullseye!?), Jessie's hat ,and a sheriff badge. I added a goatee to Uncle Len's Buzz- he looks exactly like Uncle Len! I've made a cartoon astronaut Uncle Lenny! Speaking of astronauts... We really did make a rocket! It was fueled by baking soda and vinegar. We had to put the baking soda in a tube and then tip it upside down into the vinegar. BOOM! When, after several tries, we finally got it right, the rocket soared! Check out my Mom's blog for a link to our hilarious video! (I'm not sure how to add a link..) Her address is: Enjoy! By the way, we bought a myth busters set at Joanne's with everything we need to make the rocket and other experiments. I dare you to try it - it' s great and you won't regret it! Comment on my blog and share some of your fun summer days- I'd love to hear them! With Love,
