Homemade Sunblock

We finally made our own sunblock on Friday and used it at the swimming park! It worked pretty well.

I made a double batch of this:

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup Coconut butter
2 TBS of Zinc Oxide Powder

I have heard you can also use carrot seed oil for SPF as well. We don't have that oil on hand. This seemed to work pretty good on myself and the kids. I purchased the Zinc Oxide powder from Ebay. I would recommend using a protective examining mask while mixing it to ensure not to inhale the powder. We applied it before going swimming and used it for about 2 hours. We didn't get to the park until about a quarter to six but it really seemed to help me to not feel so sick and hot from the sun's intense rays and we     didn't burn. I will have to try it at a earlier time and see how it works then.

25 weeks

I am now 25 weeks! The top picture is a photo of my youngest child and I, Ethan :) He is about 18 months. A very loving, smiley little guy!! I am feeling pretty good. Most of the nausea has subsided and other than a few aches here and there I am doing pretty good. I have to be careful about stretching my legs out too much when in bed because I get muscle cramps in my legs. I am trying to stay fairly active, healthy and happy! 

We are excited to add another girl to our growing family! I am going through our house nesting away. De cluttering and trying to keep track of anything I need for the household, kids and baby girl!  I have a few things around to take to Once Upon A Child to sell as well. My sister in law had a baby girl last December and past on her baby girl's outgrown clothes that her sister had given to her. So we are set on 0-3 months clothes. I found a great bath tub sling the other day. Still yard sale season here!  The kids and I are enjoying learning and growing and having summer fun; swimming and going to park and other fun and frugal activities close to us. I hope everyone is having a great summer! Please pray for rain and maybe do a native rain dance. We really need it here in Michigan :)
