It Felt Like Summer

Last week was amazing. Super duper amazing!

Especially the weather. It felt like summer!

It was 77 degrees on Friday!

That might not be saying much for those of you who live down south. (Hi, Grandma Norma!)

Or those of you who live in the desert. (Hi, sis!)

But we were simply lovin’ it.

Couldn’t even drag ourselves inside to eat lunch! Ate outside sitting at a picnic table instead.

When I sent this photo to my hubby, he texted back “Is that the smallest swimming pool in the world?”

Har, har! I kept refilling that tiny pool with warm water, and they played in water all afternoon!


And then we played some more!


Saturday was nice too, but not quite as summer like.

The guys were busy outside fencing, working more on that broken truck, and Chad even tilled some of our garden rows for me!




Addie Mae was gone most of the day doing fun stuff with her big sis, so I had to run the kitchen.

All by myself, can you imagine?!

And I also was working on this project with Eliza….which, as you can see, was not so successful.


In between all those potty attempts and clean-ups, I made lots of summer like food!

Cause I was still livin’ in Friday’s time!

Photos of food are so beautiful, don’t you think?

Marinated cucumbers, and restaurant style salsa. Mmm.


No mayo potato salad. Mmm. Mmm.


Fruit salad. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm!!


Summer food is such a nice change. Bye, bye soup!

David and Kayla brought Addie Mae home, and then stayed for dinner!

Thanks for manning the grill, David!


This sweet pup ran the farm for hours before we made her chill for awhile!


We ended the day getting cleaned up. And with some littles in our bed watching a show.


Today it is 37 degrees. And pouring rain!

At least it is not snow!

I got my winter shoes back out, and have winter clothes on.

Eliza and I wore our winter coats when we went to our chiropractor appointments earlier.

That tease of what’s to come is still fresh on our minds though!

We can’t wait for summer!!!

Happy Monday, everyone!!

    Well, you can thank us because WE got the snow! At least the grass can green up now and the wildfires can stop. Glad you’re getting so much done outside–I can at least enjoy looking at your green grass until mine gets here! 🙂

      Snowing here right now!!! But it is beautifully green underneath! I did put our snow clothes away, but not our winter coats – good thing!

    Love Eliza’s sun glasses! The warm weather has been such a treat! So much fun to see the kids enjoying the nice weather. Your food made me hungry though, especially the cucumbers, potato salad, and that luscious looking fruit salad. Yum!
