2013 Week 23

I took my little cowboy and cowgirl to the farm to play this week.
Horseback riding, zip lines, feeding sheep and goats.
Chasing chickens, playing on hay bales, and good friends. 
It was the perfect summer day.

And then reality hits and we have to eat dinner again!
Sunday - Scott grilled pizza with a new crust recipe.  So good.

Tuesday - First t-ball game!  Dinner will the grilled hot dogs, corn on the cob and fruit.
Wednesday - Either a cold pasta salad or pesto pasta.
Thursday - Breakfast for dinner, always a hit.
Friday - Fish tacos and quesadillas on the grill.
Saturday - Dinner with friends.

Have a great week!
