happy summer

Summer is in full swing.
That bright ball up in the sky has been working hard.
Heats been a blazin', the suns been a shinin' and I couldn't be happier.

There was a birthday to celebrate last weekend.
Happy 8th Birthday to my nephew Bryan.

We celebrated at the park where bubbles could dance through the air....

Photobucket


where shirts could be thrown to the side....

Photobucket


where swimsuits could be worn....

Photobucket


where one brother can try to comfort another....

Photobucket


where gifts could be opened....

Photobucket


and where we could just be, together as a family, to celebrate.

Earlier in the week, Jake spent some time over at my place. It was his idea to make his brother something for his birthday. He crafted up a goodie, and went to work on this card.

and it came out a little like this...
(please take me back to childhood, where it can be all about Lego's & coloring again)

In his downtime, he had some good games of Connect 4 with Rufus.
I think Rufus beat him ;)

And with his birthday next up the horizon, he was sure to leave me with his top ten. Does anyone have any connections to the NY Yankees? He only wants pitching lessons from their star pitcher.

Dream big Jake, dream big ... forever and always.

Life is beautiful, and full of whatever you make it.
I'm loving my new chalk pens where I can write some happy thoughts on my chalkboard, and where the sister can randomly draw a flower on there.

Some things I am loving this week are ..

my fruity scented lotions and sprays.
and yummy lip smackers too....

Photobucket


freshly baked cookies with sprinkles, none the less.
sprinkles make everything better, ya know.

Photobucket


fresh summer fruit....

Photobucket


freshly plucked sweet corn....

Photobucket


and yummy salads with all the fresh fixin's.

Photobucket


Ive been working on some salad dressings, and tonight I tried this one out.
So good it was, and here's the recipe to boot. enjoy.

Photobucket


BBQ tools that smile at me, just make me smile back at them.

Photobucket


and spending a summer night watching hot air balloons light up the darkening sky....

Photobucket


It's all about the little things....
It really is.

Happy Wednesday.
