I have no excuse for not blogging more often in June other than the usual slump of June. The kids are out of school and the usual bustle of summer camp, camping, and summer school have kept us steadily busy. Kepler is a bonefide big boy with big boy teeth now. He's lost all of his puppy teeth and are in the midst of sprouting the last of his adult teeth. This is a welcomed milestone for us since we're all tired of getting cut up by his sharp baby teeth.
About two weeks ago, Mr. BAW and Ahgoo went on a Father-Daughter camping trip with a few other friends on Father's Day weekend. So I hosted a double playdate with Buzz's friends and their moms. Have you ever done that before? Double playdate meaning the boys have a playdate and the moms have a playdate at the same time! I am pretty good friends with two moms who each happens to have a boy in Buzz's grade and they both live near by. I kept things simple for the ladies since neither moms are big eaters. But I did glamourfied some small bits by putting edible flowers into my simple spring mix salad, added burrata cheese with balsamic vinegar and olive oil to strawberries, and added mint and greek cheese to watermelon cubes. For a savory dish, I fried up a couple of jackfruit
cakes from Trader Joe's. A bottle of sparkling fruit juice later, we all had a blast. Even Kepler didn't mind the crazy boys. Later that evening, Kepler crashed in his crate. Partying is hard work!
