Sometimes. Sometimes you have little kids who think they are smarter than you. And they have to be taught a lesson. I asked... I begged... "Lauren, won't you jump into the pool so I can get a picture of you in mid-air?" But she wouldn't listen. She just didn't want to cooperate. She forced Eric into action. (Wouldn't I love to have those long, thin legs?)
HELLO, Internet! We've had a very nice Sunday filled with church, a wonderful dinner with friends, and tiring the children out at our friend's pool.
We LOVE eating over at Marty & Arielle's house... Marty is an AMAZING chef! (Arielle says she doesn't cook- she's just Marty's muse.) Tonight we had grilled chicken, grilled corn, grilled artichokes, and fresh fruit. It was DIVINE. Summer is the best time for grilling and it there aren't a lot of limitations on what you CAN grill. I had never heard of grilled artichokes and they were so delicious. Marty added some salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice before putting them on the grill for about a half hour: YUM. At our house, we like to grill pineapple. Have you done that? It tastes like CANDY.
Unfortunately for me, with all of the activities I was committed to, there was no time for exercise. Sunday is a day of rest anyway, right? And you know what that means... A GIVEAWAY! Earlier in the week I mentioned a kitchen tool I can't live without: My Magic Bullet Blender! I love to use it for making my protein shakes in the morning and my chilled orange juice treats in the hot afternoon. It's fast and convenient, since it has so many cups you can use & interchange throughout the day.

I'm off to straighten the house and collapse somewhere... like a couch or the foot of my bed. The sun does strange things to me. Until tomorrow...
