School just started last week, but I’m still not used to the idea. And just when summer seemed to be over, we’ve had a burst of warm weather again. So we took advantage of some gorgeous sunshine on Sunday afternoon and went to the fountain park downtown. We hadn’t been down there in a while, so it was fun to relax and watch the boys play in the water. We skipped church that morning since the Seahawks were playing (hence Logan’s jersey) so the boys were very restless to get out of the house and run around.
After playing around in some other fountains, we found our way to Cold Stone Creamery and got some delicious ice-cream treats. By this time, Logan was sick of fountains, but Ben could have played in the water all day. At Cold Stone, Ben ordered the Oreo Cookie ice-cream with m&ms mixed in. Matt and I shared Chocolate Mocha with Heath Bar added, and Logan got a simple (and very BLUE) cotton candy flavor. He shivered in his wet clothes the entire time he ate his ice-cream. I even changed his shirt, but his little teeth were still chattering. I finally wrapped him up like a little burrito in his towel so we could finish our treats. Guess he wasn’t feeling the warm summer day as much as we were!
As summer is winding down and I have been home for a few months now, I am starting to get tired of cooking and I am running out of interesting things to make and eat, but today I found a really good sandwich recipe to help use up some of the pesto I have been making. Simple, but really tasty. It has a slice of provolone cheese, a layer of pesto, smashed avocado, and salt and pepper on toasted Dave’s Killer Bread. Killer! I found the recipe here, on a fun blog I have been following lately about healthy eating. I actually hate sandwiches, but this is a nice lunch option for me when the boys are at school.
That’s all for now, happy Monday!
