It's been a nice, relaxing day here in the land of sun-then rain-then sun-then rain again. This morning I hit the road bright and early to check out a yard sale at a local church. Have you ever been to one of those church yard sales where you find all kinds of hidden treasures? Well, this was not one of those yard sales. It was packed, though, as church yard sales tend to be. The poor volunteers couldn't even get all of the stuff out on tables. Too much stuff and too many people for me!
I drove back home and fixed scrambled eggs and whole wheat bagels for breakfast for me and my hubby. Saturday is a "free" breakfast day for the kids. If we have any unhealthy breakfast food in the house (a.k.a. Pop Tarts), they're welcome to have them. After breakfast I went to the grocery store to do my weekly shopping. I don't usually go on Saturday because it's just too packed, but today I went to a store in another town that wasn't quite so bad.
Hubby grilled shrimp kabobs for lunch, and they were delicious! He and the kids spent some time playing in the pool while I took a cat nap. A blissful afternoon. :)
This evening we attended the wedding ceremony of a sweet young couple. The bride was radiant, and the groom's smile as she walked down the aisle toward him couldn't have been bigger. After the wedding we stopped by the school cafeteria to pick up some spaghetti dinners from the volleyball team's fundraiser dinner, so I didn't have to cook.
Instead of showing you pictures from my easy-going Saturday I'm going to share some random ones taken recently. Hope you all have a blessed Lord's Day on Sunday!:)
Recently we went with some friends of ours to McD's. Not just any McD's--it has the biggest McD's playland in the world.
Two families with eleven kids under the age of eleven. Yes, we got many stares.
Only in Orlando can you watch a man wrestle an alligator while you're eating a Big Mac.
One of the ladies in our church made this amazing cake for our high school graduates. The cake rotated to display all of the graduates' photographs. I thought that was so neat!
One afternoon my sweet tooth was screaming nicely calling my name. Since I've been trying to eat better lately, I thought a good compromise would be to add a few handfuls of chocolate chips to the banana bread batter. The bread turned out fine, but I think I prefer it without the chocolate chips.
