Liam & Luke

Last week we had the pleasure of spending a few days in Fremont with my Grandparents (O'Brien's) and my aunt Claire along with her two boys, Liam and Luke - by the way we missed you uncle Bill (he was working). I wasn't sure how the boys would get along with my girls and vice versa, but I shouldn't have worried because the boys and girls played with each other like long lost friends! They played legos, fished, swam, built sand castles, dug deep holes in the sand, camped in the back yard, roasted marshmallows, picked get the picture! They were non stop action for three days. Here are a few pictures showing the fun they had.

Grow Garden Grow Tile Mural

Artist, Cara O'Brien
July 20 was an extremely FUN and busy day here at the Evans' house! Not only did Kami turn 6 but we hosted a tile mural party here at the house with Cara for the DeVos Children's Hospital art project she is working on. The weather was wonderful and the kids were a blast! When the tile party was done we tallied up the number of kids who helped stamp tiles - 57 kids in total! Cara, the tile mural artist thought all the kids did a great job following directions and showing off their creativity at each of the art stations. Kids were able to make a book mark which was used to stamp designs into the wet clay tile as well as stamp other interesting objects to make their tile unique. After they were done with the clay tile the kids could make a paper casting which will also be part of the art at the DeVos Children's Hospital. Enjoy the pictures!
