Weekend Fun

What a whirlwind of a weekend!  Friends, family, flowers, mulch.  The list goes on and on.  I can't believe we squeezed it all in!

Where do I begin?  Let's start with a little cutie mastering the grill for the first time at home!

Luke made hamburgers from beginning to end.  He sprinkled a little Tastefully Simple Bacon Bacon and Everyday Grilling Seasoning on before they hit the grill.
It was such a beautiful day.  He wanted to eat Al Fresco.  My parents joined us so he had to put together a setting for six on a table for four.  Job well done, Luke!
I grilled vege kebabs - corn on the cob, zuchinni and sweet peppers sprinkled with Emeril's Essence and brushed with melted butter and a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
There was lot's of reading.
Lot's of gardening.
This wise old owl appeared on my doorstep!  Isn't he the cutest!  Every baker needs a wise old owl to keep her cookies in.  If you want one to, check out Anthropologie.  Thanks Mom!
