My husband and I moved to Tokyo last year and have had fun discovering Japan and the last 3 weeks I have had family come visit and I was able to be a tour guide to all the sights. It was so much fun to show them the tourist and the not so tourist sights and to experience all the foods here. Sushi is big , but the bakeries blew everyone away-so Good!

I get to volunteer at a hospice this summer, and one of the best things I find great about it, is that I get to make cookie baskets that get sent to various nursing homes. I bake the cookies and make cute little tags for them. Sometimes I think I’m so lucky that I found a job that fits me so well!

Our family took a huge family vacation – grandparents, kids, spouses, everyone – to Gulfport, MS a few weeks ago. It was amazing! Who knew MS was so beautiful?! Not me. Now we plan to go back again next year…maybe with an ice cream maker. ;)

My summer really hasn’t started yet because I have been ill and in the hospital for the past 6 weeks. I am learning to walk again and build my strength in rehab and can’t wait to go home. I love ice cream and need to make my diet healthier so believe I will have lots of fun with this new book of Jeni’s!

I’ve been on a crazy cake/muffin baking race. Not sure why I’m baking so much but it feels good being able to share it with my family and neighbour.

kesha said...

Oh I would love a Ice Cream Maker! My daughter would too! She has been asking me to make her some homemade ice cream and I know that I can make it without the machine. I just feel like the machine does a better job at making it. I told her that we would have to see about purchasing one, but winning one would be the BEST!!!! The best thing we have done this summer is going to the beach and going to her dance competitions. We are in the process of planning a trip to Disney too! We are so excited!

I’ve had a blast hanging out with my kids. My baby is starting kindergarten this fall. Oh my! Where does the time go? We made chocolate chip cookies and cake poppers! We invited some of their classmates over and went hiking. Then I served them warm cookies and root beer floats. After that, they all had a huge water balloon fight in the yard. We ended the evening making s’mores. My kids and their friends had so much fun, we did it a few times over the summer. I also LOVE doing craft projects with my kids. I’m just enjoying anything I can with my kids because I know when they are in school full time, I’m going to miss these moments. We are going to Lake County Fair this week. Can’t wait!

I went for a 2 1/2 hr cycle ride with my mum yesterday, at the hottest time of the day! Although it was sweltering and we got attacked by nettles the views were stunning and we enjoyed a well-deserved BBQ with the family once we got home.
On top of that, I made a red velvet and white chocolate four tier checkerboard sponge for my sister’s 16th murder mystery birthday party, delicious with fresh garden raspberries!

I took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate my Mom’s 81st BDay. It was an “Are You Related to Me?” cruise so I reconnected with distant cousin’s. FUN! (and chilly…like ice cream – hint!).

It’s been really hot where I live, like over 107 every day. There aren’t any pools open to the community and even though the beach isn’t very far away most of the parents work and aren’t able to take their kids. I am currently not working so I decided to make my large yard into a waterpark and invite all the neighborhood kids and their babysitters over to cool off. We had slides and pools for all ages. We also had water balloon and water gun fights. Each family brought their lunch and I provided lemonade and water as well as yummy watermelon. For dessert I made fresh strawberry ice cream in an old fashioned maker, rock salt and all. We have been doing this once a week and it’s a HUGE hit.

July 22, 2013 03:27 AM
Christy G said...

What a great giveaway! Homemade ice cream would be perfect over this hot hot summer. So far this summer, I celebrated 1 year since a major surgery and with the help of my sweet husband, made by first 5 tier cake for our niece’s Sweet 16.

we just got back from treking in MS- saw the petrified forest and alligators in their natural environment. A home made ice cream would have been lovely at the end of those 90+ degree days!

July 22, 2013 03:27 AM
Rachel said...

This week has been crazy! Firstly I made a four tier red velvet and white chocolate chequerboard sponge with fresh garden raspberries, for my sister’s 16th birthday murder mystery party (it was nerve-racking as she cut in, hoping the pattern would come through!). Then all my friends came round for a barbecue brunch the next day – my friend manned the barbie and proceeded to drop half the food on the floor (it’s alright, no one got food poisoning!). I saw Monster’s University with a friend (we may have been the oldest in the cinema…), and yesterday went for a 2 1/2 hr cycle ride with my mum, at the hottest time of the day. Although it was sweltering and we got attacked by nettles, the views were spectacular, and we enjoyed a much deserved barbecue when we got back home…

I know to some this is not considered fun, but my family and I came together to paint the Big House, our family house, my grandparents (RIP), house. It needed some tender loving care. We’re also cleaning up the backyard. It’s fun because we are all together, hanging out, joking around. We BBQ at the end of each day. Its going on day 4. Hopefully we will be finished next weekend.

Hi – love your page :-)
It might sound simple compared to some of the above comments but in all honesty we just had a ball spending the day at the beach with our young family enjoying the gorgeous warm sunshine, building & decorating sandcastles with moats, bouncing in the waves then eating our packed lunch :-)
