Well, so far I've had a pretty busy summer. We started by going to Ireland for 10 days and then we came back to Hungary to help out with the Summer camp here. My main job during the camp it to take pictures, but I was also an English teacher for 2 week.

Here are some of the pictures from camp :)

Week Three


Sunday School & Cotton Candy

For the past few Sundays, I've gone into Budapest with some of the BI students to help teach Sunday school at a church there. For the first 3 weeks I was helping out with the 2 & 3 year olds, but last week I went and helped Amanda and Andrea with the 4 & 5's. They were so sweet.

Our story had to do with fish/fishing, so we made them fishing poles and some fish.
They loved them!

Amanda and I also made this fish for them to hold when they were answering questions.
It was so cute to watch them make the fish "swim" from person to person.

Cotton Candy :)
After Sunday school Stephen, Salo, Jared, Amanda and I decided to get subs and go for a picnic.
After we ate, we got some cotton candy... It was so much fun.

Deciding which flavors we wanted

Our crazy huge cotton candy :)

Something Different. Something New.

Tonight we're having some friends over to have a camp fire in our back yard. We'll have hotdogs, french fries and a few other snacks.

My mom sent Danny down to the store this afternoon to see if he could find any good bread for the hot dogs - Hot dog buns are nonexistent in Hungary. He, sadly, came home empty handed.

Here's where I come in... about every other week or so I make bread or rolls (always using your recipe Alli, it's still my favorite!) And my mom figured that I could use that to make hot dog buns if I made them a bit long-ish and not so round like a normal bun.  So I did, and they came out almost perfect. I say almost only because they don't look exactly like normal hot dog buns, but they're close enough and they taste good. So hey, as far as I'm concerned, they're fine.

I never thought that I'd ever be making hot dog buns, of all things! It's just something that, in the States, you would normally never ever think twice about. You just go to the store and buy some. But to me, this was way more fun.


Too many options

Okay, here's what's up... On Thursday I finally found fabric for the inside of the two bags I made. Now all I have to do is finish the outside of the second one, and then sew the fabric onto the inside of both of them. My only problem is that I can't decide which design I want on front of the second bag. So, if you would be so kind as to lend me your brain for a few minutes, I would love your help!

See what I mean? I have too many options. 
But anyway... moving on...

So there's this one...

Or this one..

Or this one.
