was full of good things.
---skyler always has her left thumb tucked in. always. it's just her thing.

---wallace still loves the garden. he constantly asks to go out there.

---i took some pics of wally's first day in our "pool". i did not take pics of his first poop in the pool. seriously.

---we took a picnic dinner to the beach tonight. there is nothing like it.

(rian is wearing his lederhosen in the pic below)

---after the kids were down and rian was into his dodgers game, i made this slowcook oatmeal recipe for breakfast tomorrow. it looks and smells like it's gonna be really good, so here's the recipe. if it tastes like crap in the morning, i'll let you know.

2 cups milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbl melted butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup oats
1 cup finely chopped apple
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
---grease inside of crockpot. combine ingredients in crockpot and mix well. cover and turn on low heat. cook overnight or 8-9 hours. stir before serving.

ha! Kurt and I were just talking about getting that kind of pool for the deck! I can't believe he pooped in there... I hope you made him clean it up! ;)

In the Haynes household, we refer to that as a fecal emergency... and it has happened a few too many times for my comfort.

Sorry about your floater. Been there.

How was the oatmeal? We do steel cut oats in the crockpot overnight, but I haven't done anything that fancy. May have to try it!
