Favorite new game:
Mexican Train Dominoes. We learned it while in California last week and it is the perfect game for our whole family. I ordered it on Amazon yesterday. Come over and play it with us!
Favorite summer salad (I had it last night. Wish I’d taken pictures because while the leftovers taste good, wilted lettuce leaves don’t photograph so well):
(This is actually my favorite salad for the past year or more. My cousin-in-law Brooke featured it on her blog a while ago and I added the chicken recipe from Our Best Bites to make it a dinner salad. It’s my go-to recipe when we have dinner guests because everyone LOVES it.)
Favorite new movie:
Temple Grandin. It is fabulous on every level: great acting, great cinematography, well-told true story, MANY lessons to learn about love and difference and hard work and achievement. Totally ter
Favorite new book:
Not exactly a summer read, but it’s kind of like Freakanomics for parenting and children. I like it because it’s interesting and gives me things to think about in a different way and apply without a ton of stress.
Favorite summer snack:
I know, I know. Every other area in the country has had these for a looong time. Spokane lags in the food department. We just got one 25 minutes away and we go every weekend. I love it because you can indulge with chocolate and treats or go fruity and sugar free and feel virtuous.
Favorite new children’s pictures:
Randi from M Photo again. Because she’s the best. We did just the kids, on the day of Jane’s baptism, and I snuck in a few. Have to show them off.
Favorite Summer Dream:
That I actually can take a half hour every few days to post all of the the fun and funny stuff that goes on around here. We’ll see!
