This Week's 'To-Do' List
  • Work throughout the week for Myself and Peter. Kids of course are still on Summer Vacation.
  • Tue - Dr. Appt (Peter) - Bit of a stressful one we find out if they put him on blood pressure medication or not. 
  • Tue - Tie-Dye at the Library (both kids) - Kiddos will have to take public transportation as Peter and I will be at work. Thank goodness they're learning the bus system because they would miss out on so much this summer since it's all set up like folks don't have jobs. 
  • Wed - Dentist (Both kids)
  • Thurs - Library 6-8pm (Family) - We may or may not do this. It is called Beyond the Lines and they offer it every month but this is the first Month in the past year we've had a Thursday open for it. It's just sitting around coloring. You bring your colors and they provide pages. I've always wanted to do it with the family so we'll see if it works out.
  • Fri - Oddly free. Peter most likely won't be out playing cards so we might go down to the park.
Last Week

So in the last 2 weeks we've actually made about 10 pints of salsa. Katherine made a more traditional Salsa which I don't have pictured here. We are getting ready for the county fair. 

Of course we had the 4th of July. The 3rd we went down to a park that was a little ways away from the main event on Saturday and we watched. It was a very pleasant evening with just a little sprinkle on us. Sunday's Fireworks got canceled and are re-Scheduled for September so when the rain finally calmed down we set off fireworks at home with a friend and his family over. Monday all the city fireworks were done so we went to a friend's house for a potluck and a firework show he put on.  

Picture I took Friday as I was walking into work. 

Saturday, we went to the Renaissance Fair.  On our way out we stopped at a local restaurant and had breakfast. 

 Friday, I gathered up the girls and we went to the park and got coffee at a local shop. Well I had an iced coffee they had iced hot chocolate. They played on the playground and I walked around collecting Pokemon.

Yes, Pokemon.

If you haven't heard of it yet the latest rave for mobile devices is Pokemon-Go. 

After we went to the Ren Fair we went back down to the park and walked more! Collecting pokemon has my husband has gotten me hooked and it just launched Thursday. Sunday we also decided to go down to the park so we could collect more pokemon and get a walk in. 

I have never seen downtown so vibrant on a Sunday since everything but one restaurant is closed on Sundays down there. I have also never seen this town so friendly! Everyone is playing it, it seems. People are talking to complete strangers down at the park and just really getting into it. It is seriously forming a whole new community! I am blown away as I can't remember anything in my lifetime quite like this. 

Hope everyone has enjoyed the last few weeks and had a safe 4th. 

Question: Are you playing Pokemon-Go yet? What's the pokemon you were most excited to capture? I think I was most excited when I captured my Abra since I haven't ran into them often though Eevee is my favorite since Eevees are just so darn cute!
