first things first- the giveaway will be going up on August 9th. apparently i suck at reading & my dates were off. my apologies to anyone who got insanely excited and marked today's date on their calendar (though i'm highly doubting that happened).
ok- moving on!
weekend pics & review.
we had an annual family cookout to attend this weekend & i was selected to make dessert. i ended up going with Dirt Cake & Phyllo Fruit Cups:
both turned out wonderfully & both are easy peasy.
the day of the cookout turned out to be a nice (although muggy) day. alex was the center of attention ::head explodes:: and she had the time of her life crawling around on the grass. she was also 10 months old on saturday- so these are her 10 month pics:
(i'm quite proud of myself. i managed to get her eyes in focus (for the most part)and i cleaned up the mess of food she had around her mouth with pretty Ok results (IMO)
(see that blanket & those toys? pointless. her obsession was the grass & her lotion bottle. why do i even try?)
and lets not forget about the dogs. i think they had more fun than anyone. plus, i'm pretty sure they were "slipped" a week's worth of food:
and my in-law's dog, Axel:
(he'll stand like this for-ever until you give him something. it's adorable)
and last but not least- alex once again. after hours of crawling, laughing, playing, eating & etc:
sitting inside (hello air-conditioning) with daddy- exhausted.
so saturday = success.
well...mostly. on the way home the hub's grill fell over in the back of the truck & promptly broke something. i guess the bond between man & his grill is very real & runs very deep because the hub's mood was pretty foul for the rest of the ride.
he perked up a little when i uttered the words "new grill" but we'll see. i think it's fine & i doubt a new one is needed.
and then alex & myself had even more fun on sunday while the hubs & his dad put the roof on the chicken coop. but i'll put up that adventure tomorrow.
how was your weekend?
