Father's Day Lunch

Here's a pretty good snap they took of Jack and I at his Father's Day lunch at school last week. The company was better than the food with one Dad commenting, "how did they manage to burn it and then serve it cold!" We had fun though and even got to sneak Elle out of her class before her nap!

Dinner Time!

With good weather and our shady back-yard in the evening we tend to eat outside quite a bit!

Summer Shandy

In honor of Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy being named the official beer of the summer by this blog, I drank a couple of them at the horse races this past weekend.

Budweiser Lime-A-Rita

Tasty margarita flavor. It is carbonated which I wasn't expecting. I like it.

Also our friend Frauke enjoyed this product.

Jack's Pre-school Graduation

Jack graduates from pre-school today and begin kindergarten in his new class next week!
Part of our homework was to write a note for his secret bottle to help him remember who he is today.

Dear Jack, Here’s a short note to help capture your personality at age 4. Of course the first thing you’d point out is that you are almost 5! You are a very loving boy. You like “putting love in peoples’ hearts” and you proudly proclaim your sister is your best friend and that you love her very much. You’ll often get yourself in trouble when you think she needs help.

You have a wonderful imagination that we hope you’ll keep forever. You like to invent names for things like super-rissens (fancy rocks) and do-dos (berries) and then collect them for fun. You’ve asked Santa Claus for garbage trucks two years in a row and have about ten of them that you like to play with. You are just learning how to ride a bike without training wheels. You love to read and we are currently reading Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Another thing you like doing is dancing in the rain and walking through puddles.

You are both an independent and a sensitive boy. You proudly proclaim you want to go to Georgia Tech even though Mom tries to unsuccessfully convince you that you’d rather go to Michigan. As long as you continue to be happy in your life we’ll be happy, regardless of what you do.

We love you,

Mom, Dad and Elle

The Official Beer of the Summer! Summer Shandy by Leinenkugel

Among other things, on our recent trip to Nebraska we established what the official beer of the summer would be: Leinenkugel’s: Summer Shandy. Some would argue it is NOT a beer because it is really mixed with lemonaide...but those folks aren't our blog authors! I've struggled to find the shandy in California so far though there are coupons for it available...
