Mother's Day with Hoops

After my mom finished doing the Walk for Cure this morning (yay, Mom!), we gathered at her house for a Mother's Day Brunch.

It was a potluck feast of large proportions.

After brunch, Paul went over to his parents house to spend some time with them, while my mom, sister and I headed out to the garage to make hula hoops. We had a new tool to use in order to cut the pipe. The PVC cutter had us stumped for quite a while.

"How does this thing open?!?!"

Once we finally figured out how to use the tool, we measured and cut the tubing with ease. We used hair dryers to heat the tubing and insert the connectors.

Finally, we added some electrical tape for aesthetics and identification purposes.

Voila! Adult-sized hula hoops!

Jessy wasn't in the hoopdancing class we took, but she is natural! I think the neighbors enjoyed watching 3 grown women hula hooping in the driveway on a Sunday afternoon.
