Food, family, and floods.

Over the weekend we had company.
It was a short visit, but we had a good time!

The Baby made his own picnic lunch.
Sprinkles, potato chips, dried pineapple, chocolate chips, and marshmallows.


I made Mexican food for dinner, because I'm a dork and forgot that the meal should be all-American.
But then I put red white and blue sprinkles on my toffee so it was all good.


It rained. And rained. And rained.
All day on the 4th of July, this was my view.


And then at night it cleared up just in time for fireworks!
So we headed out and watched them.
The kids were so excited!
It rained so much, though, that many of the roads around us are flooded.
Oh well... stuck at home. I'm sure I can find something to do.
Make more jam. Edit more photo shoots. Work on jewelry orders.
Clean the basement. Do laundry. Whatever. I'm sure I'll find things.

How was your weekend? Long? Peaceful? Hectic?

We love our sponsors!

Sounds like you made the best of a not so great situation! We worked all day Saturday clearing part of our property where we had some old chicken barns torn down. We were so worn out, we spent Saturday resting and playing in the pool and cooked on the grill. Sunday we were lazy again...Monday, we fed kids at the Summer Lunch Program...doing that again today.
BTW, we could use some of that rain, so feel free to send some our way. Have a good week!

We got rained out on the 4th too. Actually, I've never seen so much rain, all day long, then it hailed. I had just planted peppers and basil and we get a boat load of hail.
Thankfully they rescheduled the fireworks show to last night and it was so beautiful. We had the best seats and there were hardly any people. Perfect!
