Lazy Days of Summer - What a Joke!

Lazy Days of Summer - whoever came up with that term anyway? I'll bet they were lazy all the year round too! What is it about summer that just takes over? No matter how organized I try to be - there is just never enough hours in the day.

But no matter how busy I am I always have time for this little guy:

He just has a way of centering our world if you know what I mean. Everything else just stops when he is around and we focus all our attention on him. Can you tell how crazy about him we are? LOL!

Here are a few more pictures of him that I just have to share.

Here he is in Mia's (my grandma name) sink taking a bath. My word, does he love a bath. He can be screaming his head off and the second you put him in the water he totally relaxes and nearly goes to sleep. It is the funniest thing.

And just look at what my little salsa garden produced:

See that red tomato! I cut it up and put it in our salad last night. What a wonderful treat. I can't wait for more! And see that teensy tiny little jalapeno pepper? Wow - I can't wait. I make fresh salsa all summer long and it's going to be so fun to make it fresh from my garden. And the onions are Walla Walla sweets - yum! I planted a row of them and I'm thinking it won't be enough. But the good news is if it's not - we have onion fields all around us and every fall the onion trucks roll past our house and onions invariably fall off the truck and bounce right up into our yard. No kidding. It's like the onion delivery truck or something. Some people get milk delivered - we get onions.

Idaho is cool like that.

He is one beautiful baby. What a charmer. I can see why he has stolen your heart.

And homemade salsa is the best. I make mine with black beans. Mmmmm.

Judy said...

Ha! Ha! That is the funniest thing about the onions! Laughing so hard right now! Oh and little Tyler is pretty darn cute, too!

He is definitely a keeper!

I give the twins a bath together in the tub - lying on a blanket so they don't slip around. They love it. They're both here tonight sleeping (hopefully all night!), as the big girls are having a sleepover - Kristen's looking forward to a peaceful night.

He's sooo cute! I'm sure I wouldn't get a thing done if I had him to play with. The house would fall down around me. It's just wonderful that you are such a big part of his life.

and I love the part about the onion truck:)

He is so cute!! What a lucky grandma!!!

I wanted to let you know I got my book and I can't wait to get lost in it!! Thank you!

Judy said...

P.S.--Got a good salsa recipe that you can share? While I haven't yet made the leap to start my own garden, I'm loving our local farmer's market this summer! Mmm, and fresh salsa sounds delish!

What a cutie pie!

There is nothing as great as running out and picking your own tomatoes, then coming inside and chopping them up to make your own salsa. It tastes so much better, and that is one precious baby - don't you love when they're little enough to just pop in the sink!
