Chick-Fil-A Lemonade

    I found this recipe for lemonade that tastes just like Chick-Fil-A lemonade... I promise!! :) It is really easy and the best I can tell, originated over at Good Cheap Eats . I have a feeling I will be making it several more times before the summer it over....

 1 1/2 Cups fresh squeezed lemon juice (Aprox. 8-9 lemons)
 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
 5 Cups water

Combine lemon juice and sugar, stir well, then add water. Serve over ice...Enjoy.;)

A Summer Weekend

     On Friday night we had a grill out for to celebrate Michael's 23rd birthday! {Any excuse to eat some amazing food is good.:)} We had steaks, cheese stuffed burgers, camp fire style potatoes, baked beans, deviled eggs, choc. covered strawberries, fresh squeezed lemonade, and Butter Finger trifle....

     Also, on Saturday we found and amazing yard sale bargain.... a bead frame with head and foot boards. All we have had since we've been married is a metal frame on wheels... I have been looking for a cheap or free bed set, but never could find any close to home. This one was a mile down the road.:)

PS... I think I want to paint that book case sometime here in the near future. Any color suggestions?? :)

Baby Watkins Shower

     This past Saturday we had a baby shower for Debbie and Nathan while they were down visiting. It is probably the last time they will make the trip before the little bundle arrives.:) They are doing the nursery in a jungle theme, so that is how we geared the shower..... I  think it turned out well and they got a lot of nice gift, which I'm sure will come in very handy!! I posted an album on my FB because there are so many pictures. I will just post the link on here and you can go over there to see them.... Click Here to See Pictures. :)

Chainsaw Carving Championship

     Every spring since 2005, the International Chainsaw Carving Championship has been held in my little sleepy home town of Chetwynd, BC. According to their website there are currently over 100 carvings in Chetwynd. This year Sean & Britt (My bro-in-law & sister) took all the pictures of the finished carvings... the ones that will be in magazines, post cards, etc.... My sister emailed me these little sneak peak shots at some of the carvings....


Fighting Roosters


Britt and Sean also had their booth set up the whole time selling their pictures...Sean does awesome nature photography and Britt is pretty decent herself.;)

Recital 2012

     Saturday evening we had a recital for the two students I teach privately. It was tons of fun and the girls did very well. Chace has been taking lessons since the fall, and Shayla just for the past couple months. Both are doing  an exceptionally  good job at learning! :)

Our little reception for after.

Memorial Day Memories

     We had a really fun and relaxing Memorial Day. Nothing to complicated, just a cook out at our place with Pop and Mama, Marcus, Mandy, Shayla, and Shane. It was a beautiful day so we spent it in the pool and eating. Marcus and Michael cooked the most amazing Shish Kabobs ever, and had lots of good food to go along with them.:)

It started with a sleep over Sunday night.:)

The amazing food!

The great grill-masters.....

Enjoying just relazing:)

One of the pool-babies...We didn't get a picture of the other one.:(

Simple people find simple things very entertaining.:) {Inside Joke}
