I've been away ALL day with my three little monkeys enjoying field day. Boy am I tired and so are the kids! The heat is back on the rise here and we ran and played in the water. Now it is time to sit in front of the air conditioner and enjoy some rest. Maybe even break my rule and order a pizza :O) here are some pictures from our day. Any plans for your Friday night??
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
