i am deciding to make this post right to amy...but you are not imposing!
join right in!
so glad we could meet today, but i seriously really wish that i could be having real coffee at your house.
i'd drink whatever you were serving even if i'd never tried it before.
and i'd be grateful.
i'd also want you to to take me on a tour of your beautiful area.
maybe some antique shoppin' and some ice cream???
then i'd want to see the how tall the corn is compared to me.
oh and see fireflies!
i've never seen fireflies...ever.
i wish for that.
i guess i'd have to wait for night?
so maybe it'd have to be night coffee.
are you kids driving you crazy yet?
or are you guys still super into summer?
it seems like you have done a lot of the things on you summer list, huh?
we've done a few and i am starting to regret putting a few of them on there.
oh, by the way, i meant to tell you that i like my alone time at my house too.
sometimes having more kids in the mix really rocks the boat and disturbs a delicate balance...
how's it going with "neighbor boy" today?
well, even though lots of times i feel like that, sometimes it's nice to have some company.
i know you feel that way too.
yesterday Leslie came over to our house with the kids and we had more than our share of junk food and let the kids swim/splash in the blow up pool that is on it's way out (2 days left?) because of holes.
our boys do swim lessons down the street, so before and after that we just had reed house hang out time.
we did some water coloring and ate popsicles
and leslie cut up veggies to dip in hummus and made me a quesadilla in my own kitchen.
isn't that the best?
THEN we made cookies and made the kids eat um all on a picnic blanket so i could take pictures of them...
this is my favorite one.
to make the popsicles that we had you just have to make
this non-alcoholic recipe for brazilian lemonade.
this is "freak out" good to me (leslie wasn't a fan...though i think you should listen to ME)
i make it and keep it in the fridge.(and spiked with some coconut rum it's not too shabby as a "mommy after hours treat")
in fact i'm having some now.(without rum....promise. it's only 4pm.)
and then fill your popsicle molds 1/3 full of sliced strawberries and then fill it up with that limey fabulousness.
it. is. so. good.
the kids loved um and so did i.
someday we will have a little party of our own i hope, right?
ok, i better go.
i am taking the kids to see mr. popper penguins tonight since reedo is working late.
we just finished the book and they are so pumped up to see it!
i'll let you know how it is....if you haven't seen it yet.
see ya friend!
