We're settling into a routine with our son and his family living here - and it's going well! Grandpa now has lots of help playing his "Bejeweled" game on his Mac. :-)I enjoyed working on Caleb's blanket while Buddy kept an eye on the boys and grandpa. Dayle had 2 chuck roasts in the oven that day and he made glazed carrots and boiled potatoes to go with it and oh my.. the roast was delectable and tender and it had made it's own gravy.. we have our dinners around the table now that our family numbers 6.
And so.. I decided to make 2 loaves of Zucchini (courgette) bread as it's great for breakfast or a snack. I'd picked up one Zucchini at the farm store on my way home through the countryside after swimming on Friday. I'd asked Dayle to pick up a few more when he shopped on Friday. So, I hand grated my one zuke in the batter bowl and reached over for one of Dayle's zukes... and OH NO.. he'd bought 2 cucumbers!! After a small hissy fit from me, off he went at 9 pm to drive the 20 minutes to the store and back. Someone asked why I'd send him back when he doesn't know the difference.. another asked if I sent a note to the grocer with him.. :-) But I think he knows the difference now.. maybe. At any rate, they both came out great.
Buddy looked especially cute, so I snapped a photo of him.
Yesterday, we invited our older son and his family for Sunday dinner and Dayle made his famous sourdough honey wheat rolls. Oh yeah. Uh-huh.. mmm.
Want a closer look? Can you just smell them?
He also made Farfalle with ground beef sauce with grated Bandon cheddar cheese on top. We dined outisde as it was quite warm and had fun chatting about old times. When the boys start swapping stories, I always learn things I never knew.. :-)
The boys were talking about their old bikes when they were kids and Kristi said she'd seen an old bike in the barn that was Shawn's - I said, well, why don't you get it out so the big boys could ride it, so she did. It needed air in the tires and so here are all 4 boys using an air pump to inflate the tires. And they held air! A 30 year old bike!
The biggest and littlest.
Michael borrowed Travis' bike and so they all had fun riding around the farm.
OK, I have to pack up for my Daughters of the American Revolution meeting in a bit and also my swim bag so I can do my swim workout after the meeting. Busy busy! I hope you have a great week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
