Summer, Summer, Summertime!

I love summer because I enjoy being able to take the extra time to do special things with the kids. Yesterday, after returning from grocery shopping, we made kabobs for lunch. For some reason, sliding food onto little sticks is very appealing to them! I gave them grilled chicken chunks, 2% American cheese, whole wheat shell pasta, mangoes, and cherry tomatoes, and they stacked their skewers with all these yummy foods!

Later, when Joel was napping, the girls joined in as I did one of the segments on Denise Austin’s Pilates DVD.  This particular segment involves some ballet moves so they were definitely into it!

Then, once Scott got home from work, we went for a swim in our friends’ pool and finished off the evening with grilled Asian pork chops (will post tomorrow), spring rolls, broccoli and red pepper stir fry, and more mango (thanks Laura!!). Needless to say, bedtime was a cinch!
