On Monday we made salsa. I have wanted to make salsa for a while now but had to wait for the tomatoes to ripen up. Had quite a few tomatoes. This batch we made was a new recipe, it calls for a lot of garlic and celery, different ingredients but man it is good stuff. I didn't use a salsa packet like Ms. Wages. This is just a 'from scratch' recipe. I worked with a guy who gave me this recipe. If you are looking for a bit of a different way to make some salsa let me know and I can share it. It took about 4 hours to make. Next time will be quicker.

The boys had a fun time in the bath tonight. I was surprised with this silly message on Brannen's back when he crawled into the bathroom, written by his father of course (don't worry, it's non-toxic and washable...). Lately, Brannen's favorite time is after I drain all of the water out - and he'll slide around the tub on his tummy like a seal and giggle at himself. Love it!

A couple of weeks ago a big group of friends from Jamestown went down to Aberdeen. Mostly mom's and A LOT of kids (total of 7 adults & 13 kids!) First we hit up Storybook Land. Then we spent most of the day at a fabulous water park. It was very kid friendly, with a large area that was a gradually deeper kids pool and play equipment. Brannen & Leyton both loved it. I especially loved the lazy river. The weather was gorgeous that day, too. After an ice cream & supper stop, we were beat and headed home.

Last week was a week of partying! On the 13th, Brannen turned the big 1 year old and on the 18th Leyton turned 4! We had a birthday party for them on the weekend between and it was a great time for all. We rented a big giraffe bounce house and had lots of friends over to bounce! It was a treat to have Grandma Mary come over to Jamestown, too. What a fun day it was!

Leyton got a new bike for his birthday. He loves it. His great-grandma Pudge got it for him. He has a nice helmet too. He loves to ride around our bike path and stop fast and leave skid marks with the back tire. Here he is on his new bike.

On the 24th of June Mom, Nessa and Savannah came to spend 3 weeks. Leyton looked forward to it being "Grandma Day," as he called it, for weeks! We picked them up in Fargo. Once they got in we went to Space Aliens restaurant. They have good pizza and fries. They also have a lot of games to play in the game room. We had a great time playing games. After we ate we drove around the Fargo car dealerships and looked for a minivan. We looked at quite a few of them, and we also showed mom and nessa the one we kind of had our eye on.
