Of course a 'summer like' day wouldn't be complete without cute little outfits! I found this a year ago at a second hand sale at a church. I love it!!! It looks soo 1920's!! So here is Gracie striking a few poses!
And although it was wonderful and sunny outside, Gracie still has a meltdown and needed her nap!! :)
So while Grace napped, I took Ava and Gabriel outside. While they ate, played with water guns and bubbles I .....
suntanned and kept my feet up ~ hey someone has to do it!!!! :) :)
In the summer time, we like to eat 'lite'... foods with loads of flavour.. but cool, satisfying and refreshing. In the morning I made a cold couscous salad with peas, corn and roasted red peppers tossed with Greek salad type dressing. I also blanched asparagus and topped them with the same sort of Greek dressing. I had chicken legs marinated to be bbq'ed in the evening - and viola! dinner is done!
I also managed to pop a cake in the oven for an after dinner dessert, I like to just top the cake with some pudding ~ always a hit! While the cake cooled outside I continued to work on my tan!
Later on that afternoon Gracie woke from her nap, greeted with kisses from Ava ~ who wouldn't want to be greeted that way after waking up! Ava just adores Grace! So click click away... here are some photos of Gracie waking up ~ she sure is cute!! :}
So while myself and the kids were enjoying the warm sun, having snacks, reading suntanning, drinking ice tea and iced coffee.....
...Jay had a few chores to get done before summer 'officially' starts! He was able to stack all our wood for next winter (better to it in May then August!) and he cleaned out the pool, top it up with water and shocked it!
So as you can see we've had a busy but enjoyable day! And for anyone who might be worrying about Jay if he was actually able to relax... he did manage to settle down on the deck, enjoy a beverage, snacks and his family! (although he did get a farmer tan working outside today! *hee* ~ so I would feel bad for him because of that!)
I hope your Sunday was as blessed as ours! Happy 'almost' summer!!!
