Happy Tuesday and welcome back. The kids are headed to school tomorrow! I'm home helping them enjoy their last day of summer and making sure we have everything in order. I hate it when summer just flies by, but we did have a good one so I'm grateful for that.
Take a look at our last full week of freedom:
Day 222- Monday, 8/10/15
I actually got some back-to-school shopping done this afternoon. It's kind of sad I didn't need to buy crayons this year. The boys are growing up. At least a couple of them still need glue sticks and colored pencils.
Day 223- Tuesday, 8/11/15
John has been big on making smoked salmon lately. He's has many requests and is now smoking a batch for the weekend guys trip to the mountains and kindly threw in a couple extra for us girls left back at home. Thanks babe!
Day 224- Wednesday, 8/12/15
Brandon LOVES penne pasta. He says it's his favorite food so he was super excited when he found out I was making some for dinner. He'd eat this whole pot if I'd let him!
Justin had his freshman orientation this week and has been practicing with his combination lock for PE. I so remember doing this when I was his age. It took him awhile to get used to it but now he can open it in the blink of an eye which helps him feel more confident. One less thing to worry about.
This week is ending on a warm note so what better way to beat the heat than with a cold treat. We all love It's-It ice-cream cookie sandwiches--a true San Francisco treat! Tyler's favorite is the mint flavored one. Yum! It's turning out to be a very foodie week ;0)
The guys are in Tahoe for "mancation" so the ladies got together for a little lunch and wine tasting. We were at the Old Sugar Mill which has been converted into a wine tasting mall of sorts. It was perfect because it was really hot out and we could stay in the air-conditioning and still taste from several different wineries. I ended up bringing 7 bottles home! What a fun day with good friends.
Yep! Still HOT!! We broke the century mark this weekend so when John returned from his trip he and Justin did the most logical thing and hit the pool. We probably only have about a month left of use before it starts to get too cold and the pool will need to be closed until next summer. It's so sad to see summer go. Really?! Are we there already? :0(
That's it! Thanks for stopping by and check back next week for the start of our school days.
