Well, the first official day of summer is June 21....but since we've had temperatures well over 100 degrees the past few weeks we feel like it is summer time already! This past week was one week full of summer time fun activities. Here's our week in a nutshell....
Monday.....Isabella enjoyed celebrating her friend, June's, third birthday at a fun little park - "Cowboy Park." It started to rain half-way through the festivities, but that didn't slow us down. We finished our partying underneath the pavillon!
Tuesday.....We enjoyed a nice grilled family dinner together. Bella and I enjoyed some fish and Jer enjoyed a big ole steak! After the sun went down, we ended our evening with a nice "short" walk around the neighborhood. "Short" due to the fact that little Bella would rather hold our hands and walk than ride in her stroller so we had to shorten our walk. One year olds take itty bitty steps and walking 1/8th of a mile is definitely long enough! =)
Wednesday.....We threw a Luau for our high school students! Tiki torches, leis, delicious fruit, fun games and good fellowship made for a very memorable night with everyone!
Here are a few of the 9th grade girls that I've enjoyed getting to know better this year while teaching Sunday school......
Thursday......Jeremy runs with a group of guys on Friday mornings followed by a Bible study. So, we gathered with all the families and had a grill out/pool party!
Isabella is getting more and more confident walking alone!!! Yay....go Bella-boo go!
Friday......Two of our graduating seniors came over and baked cupcakes for us! They insisted on baking in our kitchen so that the house would be filled with the delicious aroma of fresh baked cupcakes!
Saturday.......We are heading over to some friend's house for dinner! They brought us a delicious pasta dinner a few weeks ago when Bella was sick. I have been begging for the recipe because it was....oh my goodness.....soooo amazing! So, we are heading over for a "cooking lesson" and dinner together. She is going to show me how to make the pasta dish and then we will all enjoy it together! With the help of Isabella, I made a Lemon Meringue Pie this afternoon that we will enjoy tonight! I can't think of a more perfect way to end a hot summer week!
