Happy Father's Day!

I had Mom and Dad over for grilled pizza for Father's Day! This is the only picture I took, whoops. Probably because we were too busy eating grilled pizza! It was a good batch.

Porch Breakfast

Yum! It was a beautiful morning to enjoy one of Dad's famous porch breakfasts.

I sure am a lucky girl!

Tea Party Cooking Club

Emily hosted a cooking club this month, and the theme was Tea Party! We had so many tiny and delicious things! Emily made these Earl Grey shortbread cookies.

Emily also made curried egg salad sandwiches!

Valerie made these smoke salmon vol au vants with salmon roe. Fancy!

Nancy made herbed butter and radish sandwiches.

Valerie made cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches.

Emily made these little scones with homemade clotted cream, lemon curd, and strawberry jam.

What a beautiful spread!

What a delightful tea party!

We played Golf after lunch and every single one of us flipped over a King. It was crazy!!! Seriously what even are the odds?!

Davis Vacation

I went with Mom and Dad over to Davis this week for a quick trip to visit Mer, Pete and Kate! The evening we got in, we headed to The Billy Motel for a cocktail!

Dad being silly:

I'd never been there before, but apparently they just renovated it and it looks awesome! 


Manhattans! Cheers!


It's Pride month and there are rainbow flags all over Davis and Thomas. So cheerful!


We ordered pizza from Sirianni's for dinner. Yum!

After dinner, Mer, Pete and I went to a little sightseeing. We went to Lindy Point for sunset!

Sissies at sunset!

Then we checked out the Gentle Overlook at Blackwater Falls. Pretty!

Tuesday morning, Dad made eggs! Yum! There were jalapenos and cheese inside.

Tuesday was a rainy day, so we hung around the house most of the day. Mer's friends brought their new puppy Homer over, and he was soooo cute!

The rain cleared up in time for us to grill some veggie burgers. Yum!

After dinner, a few of us went into town to get some ice cream. Yum! This is Coconut Canyon flavor.

Wednesday was sunny and gorgeous! We went back to the Gentle Overlook with Mom and Dad! Still gorgeous!

Then we went to Pendleton Point!

We found a bouquet of fake flowers so Mom and Dad did a little photo shoot.

Don't forget to stop and smell the fake flowers!

We went back to the ice cream shop for lunch! This time I got Mornin' Sunshine. Coffee with chocolate slivers! It was supposed to have a caramel ribbon, but I did not detect one. It was still delicious though.

That evening we set up some targets and did bb shooting!

Pew! Pew!

We made roasted sweet potato and black bean tacos for dinner. They were amazing!

I taught everyone to play the card game Golf, and we had a great time!

This morning on our way home, we stopped to look at the windmills before leaving the area. They're so cool!

It was a great, relaxing week in Davis. Until next time!
