Hi there! It's finally officially summer at our house! Our kids had their last day of school on Friday. So, this is our first week of summer break!
My parents and little sis are here visiting this week, so it's made this week feel even more vacationish. We've spent the week doing our usual run around to sports practices and games, swim team, scouts, activity days, grocery shopping, etc., but it's been way more fun with Grandma and Grandpa around. They've been awesome about staying home and watching the little kids while I drive around like crazy.
We've also been doing fun summer things, like playing in the river, going to the splash pads, eating too much ice cream, cherry picking, hiking, and eating lots of yummy food! It's been nice to see the kids be exhausted when we finally get home and only want to lay on the couch and read or play quietly. And we're in full wear-your-swimsuit-all-the-time mode. You never know when you'll get wet!
We've had lots yummy food this week. Let's see if I can remember what we've had and what's been planned.
Sunday: my parents arrived and ate steak fajitas with us
Monday: we had pizza
Tuesday: we grilled chicken salads (lettuce, tomato, avocado, black beans, grilled corn, marinated chicken, homemade ranch or cilantro/lime vinegrette, topped with crunchy tortilla strips (made like these homemade chips)
Wednesday: the missionaries joined us for dinner, pulled pork sandwiches on pretzel buns topped with coleslaw, freshly picked ranier cherries, and lots of yummy desserts.
Thursday: we're going to have spaghetti on noodles or spaghetti squash
Friday: grill burgers and hot dogs
Saturday: easy night
Sunday: Father's Day, I should ask my hubby for his request, I guess.
How about you? What have you been eating this week? What are your plans for Father's Day dinner?
