first day of summer randomness

One.

I made deviled eggs yesterday and I am calling them homely eggs.  I boiled them and couldn't get the shells off.  It was a task!!  Just to de-shell the eggs.  They tasted GREAT though.  And I had one for breakfast.



Two.

I use !!!!  way too often.  I have an explanation point problem.


Three.

Hayden is obsessed with trash cans.  While we were in Waco this past weekend he went to the children's museum there.  Hayden found a trash can that he could touch.  He took the lid on and off and on and off.  He was in trash can heaven!



Four.

We have a million swimming pools at our house.

Hayden has his own.  He isn't really into swimming this year.  He mostly just puts sand and grass in his, and tries to hit golf balls into his.  Since he doesn't care to swim or splash around it makes it hard for me to take him and Layla to the big neighborhood swimming pool/splash park.

Layla, Gary and I enjoy a larger swimming pool.  It is perfect for Layla because she is just now getting comfortable under water.  She is swimming the length of this little pool, and doing it well.  She gets a bit intimidated at the 5 foot swimming pool here in the neighborhood.  So you will see many posts of us and all our pools.



Five.

Layla loves her goggles and thinks they are magnifying glasses.

Happy First Day of summer.  {fanning self with magazine}

I've had deviled eggs before. I've never made them myself. But after seeing that yummy picture, I can't seem to concentrate on anything else BUT deviled eggs! I MUST have your recipe! I have an explanation point problem too!!!!! See!!!!

Awesome randomness! I love it! It is so hot! Blech! So hard that he doesn't want to get IN the water!

Well the good news is that your eggs were probably really fresh! The bad news is that it sure is a pain, huh? They say that when you boil your eggs if you put a splash of vinegar in with the water it helps. I've found this to work 75% of the time with my eggs (which are hardly ever older than a week, seeing how I have chickens in my backyard...the ones from the store can be up to 6 months old! Eeeeeek!) but sometimes it still just doesn't work. Eh, anyway. Deviled eggs are my favorite!
Love all of your pools, gotta have a "clean" one with a boy around anyway. They track all sorts of stuff in them!

The eggs looked yummy, it doesn't really matter what they look like as long as they tasted good.

Love the pool pictures. Our 2 year old runs around with her googles all the time, she thinks they are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I hate when boiled eggs don't peel right! It makes me so mad, especially if I am planning on doing deviled eggs! I love all the pools in your backyard! And if you can't tell from my comment...I have a big problem with exclamation points too:)
