Went to Chicago (home town) and spent time with my mom, my college roomie, my nephew’s family & newest baby (in from San Francisco), drove up to Milwaukee to see a bunch of cousins for the first time in 7 years, ate the requisite hot dog (topped with the traditional mustard, onion, relish, tomato), and brought back my husband’s favorite deep dish pizza (frozen for travel)!

My son is 3 and a half months old, and we took him to his first trip to a water park. He loved the warm water in the children’s area and it was so much fun to hold him while he splashed his hands on the surface of the water.

Disneyland adventures were enjoyed with my niece and her son – my great-nephew. Yes, I’m that old! But young enough to make a rainbow variety of flavors from Jeni’s Ice Creams at Home in a Cuisinart =)

Its been a long, hot summer so far, fairly uneventful. So after listening to my hubby repeatedly grumble about the HUGE cat that keeps overturning our garbage can on the deck and rummaging thru the contents, I decided to stake out the can… from the safety of the kitchen of course! Boredom turned to excitement tonight, because the “HUGE cat” turned out to be a LARGE RACCOON!! (probably looking to lick the inside of the empty, store bought, ice cream carton in the garbage can!!) Not the first time we have had hungry raccoons around, but its been a number of years and I always get excited to see the wildlife that visits!

We took our son to Disneyland for a week to celebrate his 9th birthday. Then home for a week then he and I flew to the east coast to spend 5 weeks with my family. It rained the ENTIRE time we were there…fun at first (we live in the desert so rain is a luxury) but after the first few storms…not so much fun but the company and the memories we created were awesome!!! Hope you’re having a great summer.

Went on a great family vaca to Maine, to see my 3 year old great nephew enjoy the ocean warmed my heart. To see it through a childs eyes makes us a child again. He loves ice cream and when we ask what flavor he tells us a color (purple, green, orange) and that’s what he tries. He makes me smile just thinking of him
I would love to make him some ice cream

I’ve been volunteering for this non-profit organisation since last week where i taught the unfortunate kids on how to read and write properly. I met the other volunteers, we organised some games and played it at the end of the lesson. We also made them Oreo cupcakes the next day, those were a huge hit!
I had so much fun in the end, the kids too!
Thanks for this lovely giveaway :)
