a little olympic fun

we love the olympics around here.  it is what we will be doing for the next 17 days.  did you know that coverage starts at 4 am?  i will not be getting up that early to watch, but we will spend a lot of time watching our favorite sports like swimming and track and field. 

so i decided we needed to get a little festive this year.  i saw these cute olympic ring shirts online and figured i could make one for hudson.  i took an old, dingy white t-shirt and used martha stewart paint and her t-shirt medium.  first time using it so we'll see how it turns out.

 to make the rings, i used mason jars.  they were the perfect size for a little guy shirt.  i had to get a little creative with the black ring, because i don't own black paint.

 Here's the finished shirt.  It still needs to dry and then I have to iron it.  Yep it's a sideways picture.  i just spent 5 minutes trying to get it rotated and i'm done.  and yes, there is an yellow smudge in the middle of the black ring.  some paint splattered and i tried to wipe it up and probably made it worse.  good thing my 2 year old won't notice.

 Hudson also helped me make some decorations.  I let him color on the back of paper plates and then cut out 5 rings and taped them together and then taped them to our tv cabinet.  Not the classiest decorations, but i think they're cute.


what we're eating: camping edition

We're heading out tomorrow for our great family adventure!  Mike and I are super excited to take Hudson camping for a week in Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park.  Both of us grew up camping a lot and spent our spring breaks in college camping with friends.

This is the first long camping trip that we've really planned together and it's definitely taken some work.  Especially when planning for a toddler too.  Food is always a tough one, especially with a preggo wifey who still feels icky sometimes.  We've done a lot of prep work this week to make cooking not to difficult so we can spend most of our time enjoying the parks.  We will have a camp stove a long and fires to cook over, but we're going to try to only cook dinners and make breakfasts and lunches super easy.  So, here's what we're eating this next week.
