Busy Weekend

Seems like we are always leaving the house on Saturday's, mainly because you can't keep a kid inside all day (wish we could sometimes)!
I bought wings the day before so I needed to marinate them that morning while we were going to be out.

I found a Honey Lime recipe highly recommended by a co-worker so I used that.

It calls for garlic, soy sauce, juice/zest of limes, honey, tabasco and salt.

I placed them in the fridge for about 8 hours then baked them that night.  They were O.K. but could use some tweeking :)

Then we headed out for D's haircut.  Margot has cut his hair since he was 6 mos old (she has cut mine for 15 yrs).  I calculated and he will only have ONE more haircut before he starts Kinder, so I went ahead and made that appt too.


Olive Garden is right by the salon so we enjoyed some lunch.  Dominic enjoyed playing tic tac toe with Daddy and winning (wink) every time!

Then we pressed on in the extreme heat and ran over to Memorial City Mall.  D is really big on 'big boy' undies like his Daddy.  Another words, solid undies, no pictures on them.  He also needed some socks and we are slowly buying clothes for big boy school.

On our to-do list was a stop at the pet store for some treats for his grandparents dog, Sasha.  He is leaving tomorrow to spend 8 days with them in the Hill Country and he wanted to bring her some.  While there, we spotted some new digs for Donut (our beta fish).  Seeing as football season is on the horizon, well you see below that Donut got in on that and he got a touch of the tropics as well.

The boys cleaning the water to set up the new place

Here is the new home for Donut, fresh new vibrant colors.  The rest of the evening we hung out inside and cooked the wings.

Sunday was all about staying home swimming and relaxing as much as possible with a 5 yr old boy.

Putting his sunscreen stick on his face

Mommy went to the grocery store early so she could spend time in the pool also.  Seems I am usually prepping food, cooking or cleaning and doing laundry.  I was determined to RELAX.

And last but not least we grilled out delicious kabobs!
