fruit salad, yummy yummy

Hola! How is your day going so far?

Mine started with a yummy brekkie (haha! i'm a valley girl). I had pumpkin oatmeal. I like to pretend it's still fall. :)

And although the weather isn't crisp and cool, it was most certainly springy today. So the Hermana and I went on a glorious walk!

Looks like Sirius Black payed our neighborhood a visit........

One of the many things I love about summer is all the color!

Tux was out sunbathing! Or we woke him from his nap....

Check out our garden! We planted it a week ago.

 We're hoping for some squish soon!

Oscar was quite content with sniffing my shoes after the walk.

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful, except that I was in charge of making dinner because the madre is out this evening. I guess she needed a break from us kids??

For dessert we had a fruit salad with blackberries, strawberries, and bananer. Topped with whipped cream!

Did you know if you freeze whipped cream, it turns into a fluffly ice cream-like consistency? Yummers!

Lilly on the lookout for leftovers.........

What are your favorite things about summer?


  1. Sounds like a glorious day!

    I do not like summer very much in general, mainly because of my extreme poison ivy allergy. But I must say, I absolutely LOVE summer gardening, especially the flowers. Oh, and picking berries is great. And homemade ice cream too. :)

    1. Yikes - I'm allergic to poison ivy too! I have to agree, that I have taken a liking to gardening, which I always thought was kind of a silly activity. Too much patience is required! ;) The colors are fantastic, and sometimes cameras just don't capture the vibrance.
