Busy, busy

Saying the past week was busy is an understatement.
I mean, all we did was.......
  • Take family pictures with Benson family.
  • Attended a Benson/Brown family dinner to welcome BIL Josh's in-laws. We were in charge of the salad that involved a little drama with the Costco return counter. But my homemade strawberry vinaigrette was delicious. (Is that too heady to say?) I'm proud to become increasingly domestic
  • Sampled the Taste of the Valley. I was stuffed. I'm hoping to make this a yearly event.
  • The big day for Josh and Madison. Between a snoozing FIL, a blazing hot day, a last minute wedding play list compiled by yours truly, and a late night reception clean up, I am pooped. I'm still recovering.
  • One last Benson family hurrah to eat all of the left over party food.

Here's Jacob lifting the weight of the world or a giant paper mache ball.

Yes, we know we aren't tan. And it's summer. I'm terrified of skin cancer, so sue me.

Me, daddy-o and Jacob at the Taste of the Valley. Don't worry, you can all come next year.

The fruits of Jacob's labor. He's very proud of his tomatoes.

  1. So much fun and so busy! It was great to see you guys last night. I'm bummed that we missed Josh's reception, that would have been fun. I just read your list of 25 things before 25 and I could help you out with a few of those...I love to sew (we could do a project together)...I'm also pretty good at making bread if I do say so myself. I don't have a stick shift car right now...or even access to one, but if you could get a hold of one I'm a mad stick shifter. Let me know :) We'll see you guys tomorrow night for game night.
