Summer in our Backyard

(Beeper in his new blow-up kiddie pool)
(asiatic lilies in the garden)
(noodles caprese--my homemade noodle recipe mixed with some minced garlic and parsley, cooked, then add chopped tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil and a splash of balsamic--summer in a bowl)
(monster chalk drawings on the patio flagstones)
(kitchen door potted herb garden)
(dino sandscape by Beeper)
(electric raspberry cooler--recipe from Something's Hiding in Here)
(Socrates in the sweet woodruff patch)
(blowing bubbles in multiples)
(BBQ ribs on the grill)
(brewing sun tea)
(coneflower in bloom)

Some snatches of our summer so far.  We have been spending a lot of time in our own backyard this summer, just enjoying what is easiest to reach and do.  What about you?  What have you been up to this summer?

like you spending time in my own backyard too. Backyards in summer are great for gramma's and kids -- all the work is left to the middle generation -- I hope you don't mind!
