Finally bought a large "turkey frier". Don't EVER plan on deep frying a turkey but found and awesome recipe for a "shimp boil". Got it for 50% off at Joes. Was meant to be mine because it was the last one and I wanted it. I found the recipe here. Saturday night I made it and it rocked! Seriously. TO DIE FOR. And it was fun. Nicole had some friends over to make smores in the firepit in the backyard and it was just finishing cooking when they arrived. So everyone ate and loved it. Absolutely divine. Be prepared for an invite cause I want to do this all summer.
Can't find my marshmallow roasters. I am sure I cleaned them up and put them away somewhere that I could "find" them. Hmmmmm. Have checked everywhere. We had to use metal "skewers". So ghetto and south side, but it worked. Nicole had about 6 friends over (mix of boys and girls) to roast mallows and sit out by the fire pit. They are a great group of kids. They don't mind that I hang out with them. The boys even roast my marshmallows for me! ha!Sunday we were lazy. Slept in. Went to the park to lay out in the sun. Ate some delicious cherries. Made enchiladas.
Then the busy week started all over again.
Tyler played on Tuesday. They won 11-4. He played short stop and pitched and did great. Struck out 1, 2, 3 batters right in a row. Got on base with several hits and scored. Had 2 RBI's. Nicole had practice at WA and one of the mom's dropped her off at the game after. I saw them pull up to the fence in the car and the car full of Nicole's friends yelled "go Tyler" just as he was ready to pitch the ball. I was dying thinking it was going to throw him off. He threw a strike and batter was out! The entire field was cracking up and the coach said "bring those girls back!"
So tonight Nicole had her 1st game. They rocked. She plays short stop and was "the bomb". Had several good base hits, scored and had a graceful slide into home plate. They won 12-11. Good way to start the season and her farmer tan. Was hot so after the game we took her and Tyler out for ice cream. She had fun and a lot of her friends came to watch her play. And auntie Kam and Maddy came too! I love to watch my kids play sports. One of my favorite things to do.
Oh, and today Bff stopped by the salon and announced we are starting training for a 5k.
Really we are.
She has a 9 week training schedule and everything.
I guess since this is in writing, we are committed. :) Hold us to it........
