Water Tea

Eating his favorite food in the world yogurt,

Nothing says classy like tap water tea and  a cheese quesadilla.

How to water your lawn in a drought.

He can barely breathe his mouth is so full.

A glimpse of our week.

 Steve was asked to do a animation job at home which he agreed to do.  Then  after he agreed they told him they wanted it done that very weekend. He didn't get the files until 9:30 Saturday night and they were due 80% done Monday morning ( 16+ hour project). Steve never does work on Sundays. Steve got up at midnight Sunday night and worked on it all day. He had to skip work Monday to finish this job.  He only slept for and 1 1/2 that day and finished up after 9:00pm Monday night.   Stressful and  lesson learned.

Time to empty the kitchen cabinets out.

Our cabinets were old- built in 1948. They have been falling apart and we have had a mold problem.

New cabinets and granite.

He caught a stomach bug.

We told the kids earlier in the year we would get them backpacks to take on the plane for a trip later in the year. We saw this Darth Vader one on sale at Pottery Barn a month ago.....but it wasn't on sale enough to buy it. Steve found it on ebay and snatched it up. 

Evan loves it! And Vader is his favorite Star wars character.

She told me she got attacked by a tiger.

He loves fruit. So do I.

Warning melting your crayons down will stain and ruin silicon molds. 

It is unheard of for us to get rain in May. The kids wanted to play in the puddles.

Can't be happy all the time.

Last jump before they go in a take a warm bath.

She loves to be fancy.

My in-laws took us to the theater and dinner for my birthday. We had the best time! The play at Glendale Center Theatre was Dear Ruth and it was very funny. Then we ate at a fondue restaurant, The Melting Pot, in Pasadena. We got the 4 course dinner and started with the cheese fondue.

We had meats, fresh breads and vegetables and apples to dip in the cheese. We licked that cheese bowl clean. The seconds course was salads.

As you can see there are 2 burners built into the table.

The third course was the meat entree. Your meat comes raw and you cook it 2-3 minutes a piece (the meat comes bite sized). This was Steve's plate, a variety of steaks, pork, chicken and shrimp. There was plenty to share between everyone.... everything from lobster to sausage in addition to the bowl of vegetables. Then they bring you about 8 different dipping sauces.

I had a Cajun spiced meat platter. By this time we were already feeling stuffed to the max.

Somehow that didn't stop us from dessert.  There was poundcake, brownies, white brownies, chocolate & graham cracker covered marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, and rice crispies. It took us three hours to eat and it was one of the most enjoyable meals I have ever eaten.

We  were so full we barely made it to the car and home.
