On Wednesday we took a bus trip to our favorite doughnut shop—Station #13. All our Lehi assisted living residents were able to pick out their favorite doughnuts from all the many to choose from. As you can see, it was a hard choice to make! Later we took a tour of downtown Lehi and drove down the streets and enjoyed the lovely fall scenery all around us. Our trip made quite a hit with all our residents and as one put it, “That was a sweet drive!”
Today our residents, in honor of the upcoming BeeHive Halloween holiday –made our own spider cookies. It sounded pretty yucky to most–but once everyone got started, it turned out to be a lot of fun–and fun eating also.
Saturday the 22nd of September, the Lehi BeeHive home held their Luau and all families were invited. Specialty tropical drinks were served to everyone—Pina Coladas, Mango margaritas, and strawberry daiquiris ( non-alcoholic) with fresh pineapple and little umbrellas. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful performance of Hawaiian dancers next and they performed dances from all the Islands. After the dancing, all were invited to a wonderful dessert buffet—everything from fresh tropical fruit to fruit salad with whipped cream and coconut to nutty coconut doughnuts and raspberry filled cake. All were also given leis to wear and take home. Everyone had a wonderful time and felt as though we had visited Hawaii for the afternoon!
This Monday we decided to switch and have an early bowling day. Everyone really had great scores. However, the bowling champion for the day was Ella, who scored 4 perfect games! She received the trophy –Congratulations Ella!!
At Bee Hive Homes we make every effort to keep our home alive and well. By offering daily personal and group activities we have built a “home”, where residents build a family. We certainly try and make every day and adventure and invite you to come and see what makes our Bee Hive Homes of Lehi residents so happy.
Today we took a bus trip to old Lehi and then stopped off at the newly opened Lehi donut shop, Station 13. The donuts there are all homemade and they were really delicious. Our residents were all treated to free donuts–we know the owner–and by the way, he’s a great guy.
Needless to say, all had a fun trip and left the bus full of donuts!
On Monday we enjoyed a wonderful concert with Singing Cindy. We also enjoyed joining in the singing with some of the familiar oldies and the patriotic songs. All had a fun time!
Today we enjoyed making homemade bread for Pioneer’s Day. Everyone had their own dough to form into loaves and put into small tins to bake. They also made their own honey butter to put on their bread. The aroma was wonderful—from all the baking bread. After the loaves were golden brown, everyone enjoyed eating their own little loaf. It brought back wonderful memories to many– of their mom’s kitchen when they were younger and the smells of baking bread at home.
Today we had fun coloring a new picture of the everglades and put foam stickers of alligators on them for a different 3-D effect. After our art project, we had sing-a-long with Caroline and all enjoyed singing the patriotic and movie songs. We all tried our hand at music trivia–to see how many of the words we could fill in—and out of 36 songs –the residents could name all the words for 32 of them–Great job!!!
