blissful days of summertime....

Sonja, her friend Irene, and I went out on a little adventure today....because Emily took the rest of the kids waterfalling, which Sonja K. can't really do right now, with the injured knee and all. So I let Sonja choose what she wanted to do, where she wanted to go, and remember, it was a really hot day, and she can't walk too she chose to go out to lunch, to Chili's.

We then went to the dreaded mall, just to one store, Old Navy, after we finished our laughing fit in the parking lot. My stomach hurt so badly from laughing, I almost threw up my lunch, which was mostly the appetizer, chips and salsa. I didn't eat much of my food, choosing instead to bring it home for the other kids, as I don't usually eat such quantities anymore, although honey chipotle crispy chicken is really tasty.

So nice big sister Emily took six siblings...

(Suzanne and Jonny in the back, Kathryn with the hat on, Evelyn, Emily taking the pic, then Camille and Char in the front)

Em took them to the store for Doritos and waterbottles and bubble gum, then took them out for ice cream...

When I got home with Sonja and Irene, we took a swim...then Mirielle arrived...then Em came back with the rest of the kids, and they wanted dinner...I grilled chicken and we had veggies...zucchini and yellow squash, broccoli and snap peas.

Lydia spent the night last night, baby granddaughter Lydia...she slept in the Graco bed in Jonathan's room...right through the night like a good girl. She was nothing but sunshine.

Never mind. I thought it was a good time to write, but Cam's having tablet problems, and wants to talk to me...:)

Could you post your recipe again for your chocolate chip cookies? I got it from you before, and now I can't find what I did with it! They are delicious!
