Our community pool. Pretty great, eh? And it has a retractable ceiling!
Band of Brothers.
Grilled burgers with baked potato wedges.
I have recently changed the way I do burgers and I am digging it.
At one point, I made the boys get rid of the tarp and let us use the picnic table for it's original use. Two nights in a row, dinner outside. So lovely. Gotta enjoy it while we can. Trees on the mountains are starting to change colors...
I have been hitting the recipe writing hard. The last week or so has been pan-seared salmon with warm mango salsa, baked eggs with chard and feta cheese, dark hot chocolate with vanilla ice cream and glazed coconut bread. Gosh dang it, I love writing recipes. I do, I just love it. And I am so stoked to get to do something I love. I thank my Heavenly Father for it everyday.
Ethan came home from work tonight, exhausted, overwhelmed with running a business and having a full-time job on the side. I saw on the couch, glazed over and exhausted from my three crazy kids. We talked about our busy lives and how we don't see a whole lot of each other lately. And then we fantasized about what it would like to go on vacation together. Here is a sad fact, we have never gone anywhere together. I know, sad. Maybe for our 10th anniversary next year? Wanna babysit my three perfect, well-behaved, always-nice, never-mouthy children? Yeah, that would be great. Thanks.
