Took the nephews riding on the Harley — not sure who had more fun – them or me!! Grins all around the room when we got back. We lost a pair of glasses, a set of earplugs and R left 2 inches of rubber from his shoe on my pipes!! Other than that, it was a pretty ordinary ride…
Great evening with the sister, husband and nephews at the beach weiner roast last night.. threw rocks, skipped logs, picked crabs, and one of the nephews (who shall remain nameless) screached when a bug appeared from under a piece of seeweed :), We ate smores and hot dogs with WHITE buns, (Aunty – this isn’t whole wheat is it?) This is the second time I’ve been asked this – the first time – I avoided the question and replied: ‘nope, it’s Chiabatta!’ I thought I was being real clever until I saw his plate come back with the bread part eaten, but the crusty skeleton still on his plate.. This time I relented and bought white everything – even for the adults.
A couple of cruise ships went by in front of us, the boys thought it was amazing that the cruise ships are so close you can count how many stories tall they are and see people walking on the decks as they cruise by.
Aug 2 – 2011
My family is visiting this week. The nephews are 10 and 11 and when they arrived in town today they stopped by my work to let us know they had arrived safe and sound. We made arrangements to meet them at their hotel after work and bring them back to our place for a bbq. I mentioned that I just had to stop at the grocery store for Ice cream, Salad and Yogurt .. All of a sudden I notice that Mr.10year old’s eyes are HUGELY excited about this event — “ice cream salad??”
And that’s how you become the favorite Aunt without even doing anything!!
I think I may be able to make a new recipe out of that idea. Stay tuned!
