Jackie and I took the girls to a jumpy place called Catch Air. It was really cute and lots of fun!

Today we ended up at Marietta Square. This summer has been very wet and cool compared to most so the weather was perfect to just let the kids play at the park. They asked us if the could put their feet in the fountain...and we let them. Within minutes this was what was happening. Jackie was getting all bent out of shape and I said to just let them go....they were having a blast! YOLO!
All of the other adults went out on a deep sea fishing excursion so I volunteered to have kid duty. I will say getting them all out to the beach and making sure no one drowned, wandered away or got sunburned was quite a task but still a fun day watching them play in the waves!

Chick Fil A National Cow Day!!! We forgot about this last year and Addi has not let me forget since. I worked for several hours this week to get our costumes ready. The free food was cool but just going and seeing all of the ruckus was soooo fun. This is a new yearly tradition for us!
This is heaven on earth for me. And it's in my own backyard! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE (did I say love???) some summertime homegrown tomatoes. Keith got some plants back in the spring when our bank was giving them away and he has been babying them since. It was worth the effort because I found this gem out there this morning. I brought it in...washed it, sliced it, sprinkled with salt and pepper and ate it with a fork. That was my lunch today! Yes, mam!!!
The Deese family had to put their dog of 12 years, Bailey to sleep. She was sick with kidney failure. They got a new puppy today. It is a Morkie (?????). That's a combination of something but I never really heard what. His name is Rugby and he is just precious!!!!

Oh my! I am NOT a cook. I'm just not. I told Keith that the first night I met him but I guess he didn't really believe me. Ha...bet he does now! He wanted pizza so I decided I would make homemade pizza. Took me forever...made the dough, cooked the meat and then made 4 separate halves to suit everyone's taste. Went to put it in the oven and wala!!!...the oven was ICE COLD. Hmmm....Keith pulls it out from the wall and decides that the heat element was out on it. (The stove worked just fine). Soooo....I called my neighbor and asked her if I could cook the pizzas at her house. No problem. So I go over there and we literally stand in the kitchen and watch them the whole time they were cooking. Wrap them up in towels and bring them home to eat. We are all STARVING by this point. I go to cut them and the bottoms on both are BLACK. I just don't get how it could be but it was and the whole mess went in the trash and I sent Keith to Little Cesar's. So much for Betty Crocker and her home cooked pizza! Hmmmpff...

Happy 4th of July! Today was a TOTAL washout! All fireworks and outside events were canceled due to rain and thunderstorms. It was pretty sad! We changed our plans and decided to go out to eat instead. We went to Marietta Diner and then hit up Krispy Kreme for dessert! Then watched the neighbors shoot fireworks and played games for the rest of the night!
