Strawberries, Popsicles and Haircuts

Samuel has been done with school for a week now (only a week?) but we are still suffering from the lingering effects of school germs. I am not looking forward to next year when two of them are bringing home germs! Samuel got a nasty cold/cough, passed it onto Zakkai who shared it with Ben who lovingly transferred it to me. Ah, the joys of living in an apartment with 4 (and a half) people!

I felt a little better this morning than yesterday so I thought I’d try out a new recipe and brighten up our morning with muffins!

Strawberry and Cream Cheese muffins! They were very good warm but way better cold! I got the recipe from: . The boys loved them! I forgot to put more strawberries on top, instead putting them all inside. Oh well, they were a big hit with everyone:)

We have been visiting our Butterfly Park a lot lately. It is always empty, which is weird, except for the fireman who guards the park diligently. Did I tell you about him? No? He was there hanging outside the fence the first day we went and struck up a conversation after spotting Zakkai peeing behind a tree (Hey, what’s a boy to do?!). He told me all about the park and how they are still trying to fix it up and how he spends a lot of time making it safe for kids. He even escorted an unsavory character from the park while we were there last week. Nice!

We finally plowed through the boys’ manes to cool them off for the summer. They haven’t had haircuts since Florida, I think! As you can see from the picture, it didn’t go so well with Samuel, who has always disliked haircuts. I’m not sure what the neighbors think after his reaction…..

I had the boys paint t-shirts today, which they LOVED! It’s been far too long since I’ve done crafty things with my buddies and it felt really good to see how happy they were! Kept them out of trouble for a little while, too:)

And of course, what’s a summer day without popsicles?! The red, white and blue popsicles were on sale the other day at the store and my boys adore them. I’ve always liked them, too, except I’ve always wished they would put the red on the top because it’s my least favorite flavor and I’d like to eat it first….oh well! See these handsome boys with their haircuts!!

Happy 1st Day of Summer!
