Jumping the Shark

S U M M E R.
We finally got around to making hula hoops. I've been wanting to do this for about, oh, four years, but the girl never really showed much interest. Now, along with many other crafty things
(see: GLUE GUNS), she is all about it.
They were super easy to make - poly pipe cut to 10', joined with a pipe coupler, and decorated
with tape. C'est tout! These are so much better than junky toy-store hoops which NEVER stay up. They have more heft, and a larger circumference. Best of all, these, I can actually manage to keep going! When my daughter said I have "kid hips" I took it to mean my hips bear the marks of carrying two children. (They do). She meant I could hula hoop like a kid. Sweet! :)
Saw this easy cardboard shark idea on pinterest to keep the boy occupied while we
taped and hula-hooped. I think he thought it was a dinosaur? Whichever. CHOMP.
It was one of those great summer evenings in which the TV didn't even get turned on.
Love that....
