Lets start with the most important: FOODWOW. This is divine. I have been looking for you all my life.
I always knew I have loved Blue Bell ice cream, and for those non believers - it is the best. I have tried alot of flavours that are all tasty, and only ONE so far that I didn't like. But now I have found heaven. Happy Tracks some may call it.
We are also a huge Pop-Ice and Popsicle family around here. Other than Sonic Ice, nothing really cools you down like these 20 calorie flavors of frozen ice. My fav flav?? Green(notice the flavor is actually a color since I dont think they have actual flavors!). But I will gladly take any.
We did something delishious this weekend. First, on Friday we had our friends Sam and Brit over and Brian made pulled pork, which took 24 hours, but it was the BEST pulled pork and cole slaw I have ever had. He is making it again on Thursday and I cant wait.
Then on Saturday we went to "Taste of Addison". Restaraunts from all over the City of Addison come and set up booths with samples of their menus at discounted rates. There was a carnival, and fun games and then that night was a concert. It was Train ("Hey Soul Sister"). So much fun and so yummy! Eric and Kat came with us to that since we had free VIP passes in.
Second most important: Sun and Water
Yesterday we had a HUGE breakthrough with the kids. As some may remember 2 weeks ago, her swim lessons didn't go so well. This last week they were GREAT and she did everything her teacher asked and even went under. She got REALLY scared after the fact, I am so proud of her! So pool time was a must this week. We went over to our pool yesterday not only was Natalie going under by herself, but she was floating around the pool alone. This is huge. She of course had a tube to float in, but she is usually so scared when she can no longer touch. Then to top it all off, she was plugging her nose to put her entire face in. GO NAT! Now for you swim experts out there, plugging nose on kids... good or bad?
So Stephen on the other hand has HATED even putting his toes in the water this year. This surprised me since he has NO FEAR anywhere else in life and loves the tub. But just even to put his feet in the pool was out of the question. Yesterday, after about 2 hours of slowly working him in, he couldn't get enough. He was mad I kept trying to hold his hand, and you know how wobbly they are in water at first! I guess he will learn the hard way! Anyway, it ended up being an awesome pool day! And I got a start on my long awaited summer tan!
Proof of no water rule for boots, we took out the sprinkler and while nat LOVED it, he decided to be the bystander. I hope by the end of the summer he is better! Oh and please ignore ugly grass, we are working on that!
