Carson's Summer & Dinner Idea

My oldest son, Carson has been a little traveler this summer. He has hardly been at home and I have missed him so much! He is off again tomorrow to spend the week with his cousin at their grandparents house. Good thing they live only 30 mins north of us. I don't think I can handle another week of not seeing my sweet little man! Carson is really enjoying his summer travels and we have an upcoming beach trip to look forward to, but I must admit I miss the every day routine during the school year. This year Carson will be entering K5 in a new school and we are excited about what is in store for us this year.

While Carson is away, Brian & I are trying out new recipes of things Carson would not typically eat. Here is the Cheesy Taco Mac that we had last week. We had this with a salad and it was super yummy! I love this blog. She has some of the best recipes. Now the hard thing is, what are we having this week?

Memorial Day Weekend!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! We had a wonderful time hononoring our service Men & Women with lots of friends and family! Among our list of fun activities was a lot of swimming, eatting and enjoying the company of those who served in our great military! We had a busy Memorial Day. We started the weekend off with a end to our Tball season. We had our team party with a cook out and play time with friends. We had a great team this year and our coaches will be hard to top in the years following. Carson is so super proud of his trophy!

While Brian was out playing golf Monday morning, Cooper learned that he can sit on his own! He sat in the kitchen watching me cook these yummy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bars that I found earlier last week over here. These were super easy and oh so yummy! I made a double batch and I'm so glad that i did because they were gone before the cookout was over!

Cooper also went swimming for the first time and loved it! He loves floating around in the water and Carson enjoyed helping him spalsh around.

Carson should be a fish! He looks forward to swimming all summer long and will start his private swimming lessons next week!

Oh the joys of summer with my sweet boys! Too bad I have to head off to work!
