I love baking veggies instead of frying... today we had baked carrots and zucchini! With all of the summer zucchinis it's a way to put them to good use... Slice it, toss it in a little olive oil and salt, bake it for 25 minutes and Voila! A yummy snack that my kiddos don't even realize is healthy!

Summer Days

Classic. The colors of summer. Warm lazy days.
A yummy classic summer day meal, the sweet refreshing flavor of ripe juicy watermelon mixed with the rich, tangy flavor of a hotdog topped with ketchup.
Days of our lives fly by. Each one so different. Each one a gift.
Today, I relish amidst, delight in and tuck away yet again, sweet memories... this moment, these tastes of summer.
Mommy's little man can't get enough of this tasty fruit!
Fun idea: Carve out the leftover rind and make into a sailboat to float in the pool, in a stream or in the tub. Another marvelous summer activity that will be fun for everyone.

Tennis Boots

Mommy's angel was told by daddy to get some shoes on in preparation for a trip to Memaw's house to play with her cousins! A few minutes later she reappeared from her bedroom with her beloved boots on... daddy said sweetly,"Maybe we should find some tennis shoes so you can run and play around outside a little better." Mommy's angel replied," But, these are tennis boots, daddy!"
Even when my baby is crying because a frozen berry smoothie is poured down her front by her brother, not that that happened, I try and remember these sweet times, those calmer waters... and I feel joyful and more at peace.
