The Boys of Summer


I realize it is spring, and I am enjoying every glorious minute of it. My yard projects are underway, and I am gardening again for the first time in a while, even if I feel slightly overwhelmed.

But summer is coming, and with summer comes a visit from my grandsons . To prepare I am going to save some sand from the patio work we are having done, and I also recently bought

Groovy Pop Molds.

We will make our own popsicles, and they can eat them all day for all I care. I tend to be a rule breaker. We will alternate groovy pops with raspas from one of the various raspa stands in our area. They can play in the sand and swim in one of those little plastic swimming pools.

Check out the site linked above (http://www.tovolo.com/). There are wonderful kitchen items and great recipes.

The boys of summer are coming.

Ahhhh, homemade popsicles - there's nothing quite like them and for some reason they always tasted so much better than store bought? How hard can it be to make frozen Kool-Aide taste good? :)

I'm sure your grandsons are going to have wonderful times and make great memories at your house this summer!

Good times! Gracie will be there for a week in July while David and I are in Spain so she'll have to come play.
