Painted Shrew Set

We painted the set last week! Now I just need to dress it with plants and such. I'm also renting a backdrop so there won't be black curtains behind.
I'm almost done buying all the costume material (I've spent almost $2,000! eek!). There is going to be some beautiful fabric/costumes in the show!

Taming of Shrew Set

On Saturday Stephen (as crew leader), me, Thing, Dad, and Hank Toon built the Taming of the Shrew set. I still need to face everything, paint, and add a backdrop but here is the basic let. Pretty COOL! The highest level is 10' up (scary). I'm lucky to have so many helpers.

Summer Photos

I had limited internet access over the summer, but now that I'm back in UT here's some highlights of my past 2 months.

We took a hike to Grouse Creek to see the falls, wade, and roast hot dogs over a fire. It was a lot of fun! Here's Katie.

Olivia being a Polka Dot beauty at the Beach. It was fairly cold this summer so we only went 3 times. :(

Swing, swing, swing!

A summer wouldn't be complete without Nora helping Aunt Mel with the flowers!

"Argh-I be Duck Lips the Pirate!"

Jumping on the tramp with the spinkler.

4th of July Parade. Our tie-dyed shirts were a hit!


Who says the tractor is only for moving dirt!

Lovely again!

We went to the Dover trail at the beginning of summer and the path was flooded-did that stop up? Heck no!

Emy and Aunt Mel on the rope swing-so fun!

Being pulled in the hay field-luckily we don't keep cows there any more. In the "good ol' days" you had to have a shower after this activity!

Clara the model!

Aunt Mel, Scrunchy, and Lump

Christian is handsome! The 2 year olds loved playing with squirt bottles. I had to refill them many times over!

Walking through the tall grass in the dip

It was a great summer. I go a lot done for school but also relaxed and played a lot! I LOVE the farm!
