Venture Into the Great Wide Open This Weekend!


My darlings...what is on your agenda this weekend? My brother and sister-in-in law and their three kids have been staying with us the past few days and we've been having a blast. My 11-year-old nephew Alex thinks it's pretty awesome to hold his little cousin Mila while he plays video games (win-win for all)! My oldest nephew Dante is now taller than me and will be looking at colleges in precisely one year from now. I feel old. My niece Marina is eight and one of my favorite things is to sneak away with her and play imaginary games. I'm going to be sad when she outgrows that, but it warms my heart to think that one day she'll be playing those same games with Mila.

P.S. Did you know that's me in the above photo? That's 100% pure New Zealand. Doesn't it look like a painting? 

Until Monday dear readers....

Check these out:

Mmmmm...shaved ice. The best on a hot day.

Also good on a hot day: ice cream sandwiches!

Hand-printed cute are the whales (Thanks Jamie)!
