Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014

Another couple called us and wanted to get some folks together for a dinner party, one where we didn't have to cook or grill outside since it's been so hot. We came up with our theme: a Potato Party, using any recipes that feature potatoes. It was a success and everyone came up with some very good choices and side dishes.

It's been another good and productive week with the Mikester, as we traveled north to help with day care for our two granddaughters. I sometimes can't remember much about when my sons were little, but I do know why God makes parents younger! It's good exercise, though, running after the 2 year old and she moves fast!
