I guess I should post about it :-). My mother stayed with us the 3rd-5th. She helped me cook (spaghetti, layered salad, potato salad, baked beans, sausage and peppers, corn, and BBQ'd deliciousness).

I swear the 4th has snuck up on us. Which also meant scrambling for ideas for this year's special dessert. I wanted to bake some cupcakes and give them a patriotic twist without artificial coloring. I'm just on the fence about them and avoid them as much as possible. So I decided that strawberries and… Read More »

Fourth of July

This Fourth of July was relaxing. It wasn't overly thought out, just a day of grilling, play, and wows (what Jayden calls fireworks). Jayden and the neighbor's kids played outside and shared toys. We were able to enjoy the fireworks from home. It was so convenient since we didn't have to lug cameras, snacks, and… Read More »
