Good bye long weekend!

Well, the long weekend has come and gone. And now it’s bright and early on Monday morning. Another week ahead! We didn’t get back from the bbq’s last night until about 9:00, so unfortunately I didn’t get to prepare for this week much. Oh well, live spontaneously, right? 😉

Before we headed out yesterday, I had to make a batch of oatmeal cookies.

With these bad boys in them.

Shane thought you needed to see me in action!

Then I sliced up a mango for a snack, but it ended up being a little to ripe.

So we headed out to my parents’ house around 11:30 for the first bbq.

I had some watermelon to start out.

Then some more…plus chicken breast, sweet corn, and crazy bread!

We had Niko, out yorkie/maltese mix. And here’s her big debut!She was SO tired from playing with the other dogs at the cookout!

Her mean mug: “Quit taking my picture, Daddy!”
The second bbq was fun, too. But I wasn’t able to take any picutres there. I had: baked beans, a burger with half a bun, and some cole slaw! Yum. I also had about 2 or 3 beers at each cookout, so I’m going to ease up on the booze this week.

Off to get ready for my run. It’s a little dark out this morning, so I’ll probably stick to main roads.

How did you spend your 4th of July weekend?
