Try it Tuesday

When I'm at home I feel like I need to have something wonderful for dinner and not just a drive through meal. Also, moving things into the house reminded me of some wonderful wedding gifts I have not had a chance to use. This is how we ended up trying something new tonight. The recipe is from the Pioneer Woman.
We have one of these and it made the frying really easy and it didn't get all over the kitchen.
I think they turned out great for the first time! Don't they look yum?Oh we also had some fresh from the garden green beans so it was not all unhealthy. :)

Do you have any yummy recipes you enjoy making in the summer? I would love to try them! It may end up on another try is Tuesday.

New Beach Sport

We made it to the beach!!! We had a nice long drive and got to stop at the Georgia Aquarium on the way. Maybe more on that later because it was really cool.

Today we began a new sport on the beach. We don't have the waves of Florida to play in so when the tide goes down in the afternoon we were ready to play! The tide leaves a nice muddy platform that is perfect for the boogie board to slide over. One person gets on and the other pulls you while sloshing mud on your face until they stop running and let you fly! So fun! Unless you are being pushed instead of being pulled and then it ends with a nose dive into the mud and a really dirty swimsuit. Here take a look.....
This is Jenny on the runway
Where Alex is standing is where he stops running and you can see how far you fly across the mud when it is done rightThis is the wrong way to start
because you will end up like this

The class I am helping with at V.B.S. is a preschool class and I am the one who gets to tell them the Bible story. I only plan for about 10 mins. because I know their attention span can only last for so long. I am shocked by how well they listen! Today it was about God's Word being surprising and they were so cute listening for me to say "but then..." and they got to shout "surprise!" It was fun fun and who knows what they will remember tomorrow but it is fun to teach something to 30 little excited listeners. Yeah I said 30... they love us what can I say.

This picture is because I like the posts with the pictures and not really because it goes with the post at all. It was on my computer and yes I like to ride on top instead of in the car. I still feel this size.

Today I wore a captain's hat, jumped around, counted to 24 about 30 times, sang songs, told a Bible story, answered lots of cute questions about the story, ate cookies, and really enjoyed V.B.S.!
I am helping in a Pre-school room and it is lots of fun! It is fun to be with the really young ones after being with the old 3rd graders during the year. They are excited about everything! My mom was struggling to get this cardboard type pirate hat on with this patch today and one boy was so helpful when she got it right. "OK, you got it so don't touch it!" It loos like a fun week and then I'll be off to the beach! Yay!
In other news.... these two got married this weekend!

Doesn't Alex look so great all dressed up!

Home sweet home

The party was fun fun! Lots of family, friends, and food. I also got some great things for me and the house. One fun thing was some friendship bread dough. I baked it today and boy does it smell good!!!! I am going to try and wait for Alex to try it but we will see how long that lasts. Here is what it looks like.
