What a weekend!!!!

Is the weekend over already? Whew! What a busy weekend!
My Mom & I ran in a 5K this weekend. My mom finished in 41 minuets and I finished in 37:22. It was hard but fun all at the same time. I'm glad we did it.
Good Job Mom!

Then David & I did yard work on Sunday. We trimmed back bushes, cleaned out flower beds, and put out mulch. Oh...too much work. I told David he was trying to kill me. Thankfully I survived and here is a pic of me and kids by the trailer we filled up.

The kids played in the slip & slide while yard work was being done. They had a lot of fun. The first time playing in the water at the start of the summer is always fun.

I hope you had a great weekend like I did.

Random Thoughts

How country does it make me now that I have my own fishing licences?

I see the spider web in the corner but why don't I ever see the spider?

What should I plant in our little garden or is it too late to mess with?

PreSchool Days are Over

My little Lou graduated from Preschool last Friday. It was all too cute. Yesterday was the last day of preschool for her and this morning she just cried because she wasn't going to school to see her teachers and friends. It just broke my heart for her. I told her she had the summer to look forward to. She will get to go to Mrs. Belinda's, we are going to the Zoo soon, and she will get to spend time with her grandparents. This only eased the tears a little bit.
This is proof that growing up is hard to do.

Busy Summer

Today I filled out my families summer schedule. Does June look busy to you?

My sister in law would be so proud of me.
All the organization and color coding is right up her alley.

Our First Fishing Trip

The kids and I went fishing at Jerry Paul Combs Lake in Kennett. It was a nice day but a little windy. Here are a few pics from our trip.
Kara & Trey with the only fish we caught.
Trey was so excited but he never did touch it.
Lani got to touch it and even throw it back into the lake.
Lani was all smiles during our fishing trip.
When she got tired of fishing, she started playing with her new pet worm.
May the worm rest in peace.

She-She was teaching Lani how to cast her line.

Schwans Country BBQ Nachos

These may not be good for you but they sure do taste good!

I made this recipe for David this past weekend and he said it was one of the best things I ever made.

I don't know if I would go that far but I do agree that they taste pretty darn good.

The only thing I would suggest that the recipe doesn't is the dressing & cream cheese mix...I would put that in a squeeze bottle next time. It is hard to spread that over the nachos and get it even. A squeeze bottle would control how much you put on the nachos.

BBQ Pork
1 pkg. corn tortilla chips
1 cup ranch dressing
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 cup Sweet Corn
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
sliced jalapenos to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cook BBQ pork according to package directions.
3. Arrange tortilla chips on large oven safe serving platter.
4. Mix ranch dressing and cream cheese.
5. Layer BBQ pork, ranch/cream cheese dressing and corn on top of tortilla chips.
6. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and jalapenos. Bake at for 10-15 minutes or broil until cheese melts.
