This week in pictures | July 22-28, 2013

This is Presley's first summer at VBS, Vacation Bible School.  Did you know that VBS also stands for very bad stuff, very big smile, or very busy summer in the text acronym world? I had no idea:


He wore this shirt for five days.  He was stinky by the end of the week:

Full of boys on this play date:

I love me a SWEET boutique.  A mini Dylans-esque called Kandi:

I went to the nursery...again...to buy more plants...again.


Growing a green thumb is frustrating to say the least.  But what kind of example would I be to the kids if I gave up? Try, try, try again is what I always tell them:


6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0:

We have lift off:

Throwback Thursdays from Beeps.  Tuna melt on rye, it's whats for dinner:

No shortage of classic diner food here:

Need something on the go? Order from the walk-up window for semi-fast food service.  All that's missing are carhops on roller skates:

The kids want to come back for breakfast:

Fruity pancakes

The way to David's heart is roasted roma tomatoes.  Pop'um in the oven.  See you on the other side:


Going to get haircuts:

This is Katrina at Blue Velvet Salon.  She is an AMAZING cut and color stylist which is why I've been seeing her for over ten years.  She is also a good listener.  I cried in her chair when I thought David was never going to marry me.  Six months later she was giving me an up-do at my wedding.  Doesn't it look like Truman fell asleep:

David always takes them to get their hair cuts.  They're usually on their best behavior.  That's what I'm told:

My marriage mission has been to find the best banana bread recipe for David.  This one is Maple Olive Oil Banana Bread.  Very good. But nothing to go bananas over:

Happy last weekend in July!
