last day of school

ending the school year with proud smiles

and green drinks
here's to mornings spent the bestest and dirtiest way:

looking forward to a fun-filled summer

making gifts

Four more days of school. Snow is making little purses and hemp bracelets for her friends; and gathering rocks and shells for her teachers.

Maku is making bendy snakes.

I made this for my brother-in-law Joel last Christmas. He loves Oreos. His birthday is coming up and we have a week to come up with something and then make it! Snow found a pineapple tarts recipe but it is lost in the house somewhere.

rain makes seafood yummy

Eating mussels on a rainy Wednesday afternoon. There is nothing more fun than using an empty shell as a spoon.
Two hours later, I was cooking again.

We had unshelled shrimp on a bed of sauteed watercress

I saved a plate for a friend. And made sangria for the first time.
Extra crispy shrimp, extra bitter watercress, and extra strong sangria.

sunday fishing

you just know it's going to be a fine day when you're the first car on the draw bridge
and then greeted by this:

clear blue waters

clear blue skies

goggles, buckets, fishnets on the ready. let's fish!

jin was the most determined

snow found a crab

maku wondered why the water made him thirstier

we didn't catch any fish. but that's okay, we'll be back tomorrow right after school - with some fish bait!
