Happy Tuesday, friends! I just wanted to pop in here today to share a few pics of our weekend, but I promise to back tomorrow with the start of a few creative projects. I know it's been awhile, but I thank you all for hanging in there with me. I so appreciate and treasure each and every one of you.
So, we had the coolest weekend temperature-wise that I can ever remember it being, in Kansas, during the month of July, let alone the end of July and heading into our hottest month of August. Crazy! But I'll take it! My hubby camped out, with our kiddos, in the backyard Friday night; but before they settled in, we had a yummy dinner. I tried my hand at my first polenta, specifically a cheese and basil polenta, paired with talapia and a tomato and basil sauce, not to mention a fruit salad. It turned out so tasty. Ezekiel asked, "Is this our back porch, or is this an Italian restaurant?" And the compliments didn't stop there. He's so sweet! Then, we couldn't resist lighting up the fire pit and toasting a few marshmallows for s'mores.
Barnes and Noble to spend a birthday gift card that's been burning a hole in his pocket. And would you believe that he's already read four of the books he picked out? At least, he likes to read them over and over.
Build-a-Bear and decided to spend a little more of his birthday money to make a bear. I guess you're never too old for a cuddly, new friend :).
