HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOM & TAMI!!! you are wonderful mothers to me and bryan.
***WARNING***tami, if you read this it may spoil your present, because i'm posting pictures below.
bryan made me breakfast in bed and it was delicious. he gave me 2 necklaces that we picked up at the beehive bazaar and a FRUIT DEHYDRATOR! yay! i've seriously wanted a fruit dryer for a long time. i'm excited to make dried fruit and fruit leather. i'm buying some apples, bananas and mangos first thing on monday.
we got to talk to phil in sweden today!!! i love that kid so much. he is such a great missionary and he makes me proud to be his big seester. church was pretty exhausting, because penelope hadn't napped very well. we went to my grandma and grandpa's house out in payson. it was really good to visit with them, it's been a while.

i made these aprons out of the simplicity apron pattern (#?) i adjusted it quite a lot and i think i have some improvements for the next time i attempt, but i think they turned out. i made one for myself for penelope to give me...ha ha!
on saturday bryan and i took penny to the zoo. it happened to be "mommy and me" day and we got $7 entrance and a free shirt. they also had a ton of fun free events, but we made our way up there a little late and missed out on some of the swag. it was a beautiful day! penelope really liked the birds and the monkeys.
penny checked out some penguins building a nest, while the penguins behind her were putting on a show!
she thought the orangutan was pretty cool too...he really performed for us. she growled at a lot of the animals and ran away from bryan and me everytime she could.
there was a great big elephant sculpture with tribal-like carvings on its side. it would make sweet elephant sounds when you stepped on the elephant footsteps. bryan and penelope really liked it.
her favorite thing was this huge granite ball in a pool of water. the ball could turn when you pushed it. penelope would not let us tear her away from it...and when we finally did it was a VERY sad experience. i think she will like the zoo even more next year.

well the beehive bazaar has ended! this was the first market/festival that i've participated in, and i learned a lot. i've been a little stressed this last little while coming up with things to complement my scarves and finding a good way to display my products. i was lucky and found a table i could use and fit in my car at the great di! i also picked up some suitcases and a coat rack. bryan helped my laser cut a sign and he mounted some photos on foam core for me. we set it up and i thought it looked GREAT! i went to take a picture and my camera card was not to be found...so i had to take the photo on day 2 after i was practically cleaned out. i thought i had made enough stuff, but i was crocheting like a mad person for all of friday and saturday to restock. the beehive bazaar was an incredibly good experience and i will definitely apply to participate in the fall/winter bazaar.
below are some pictures of some of my new items (most will be in my shop click here to check it out) and my display!
