library card

Harper had her first trip to the library! Let me just say that she loved it! She is such a book lover anyway, that when she entered the children's section she ran from shelf to shelf pulling books and taking them to a chair to read. We'll have to make that a scheduled visit for rainy days. They have tons of board books, so thank goodness I won't have to buy as many books anymore. Whoo! Go taxes! Okay, that's a little overboard. But, whoo! Go library!

We're also discovering the wonderful world of water play. We're waiting on the pool membership to go through, so until then we have a mini water park in our backyard- installed by daddy and mommy. She had so much fun at Sunny's last week that Brian and I decided to get her a little sprinkler pool.

Hey, what's for dinner? Well, make yourself a little pizza with some fresh summer vegetables. For this one I used roasted red peppers, red onion, and garlic with fresh mozzarella, spinach, basil, and tomato sauce. I splurged (okay, not really a splurge when a little bag of basil costs $4) and bought a basil plant for $7 last summer and it lasted me from May through September. Set it in a part sun spot and water it every other day. Anyway, I put basil on grilled cheese (with Havarti, honey, and pepper-oh, my!), homemade pizza, salad, tomato sandwiches, pasta, and anything else I can think of. Go get one now!

Look at that yummy spinach! Hey, have you ever seen a double banana?


  1. So cute! Avery has that exact same swimsuit! The pizza looks yummy.. I will have to try it out.

  2. I think the banana is a non sequitur
