Well the girls had their first official trick-or-treating experience last night and really enjoyed it. The only hitch was that they usually tried to give their candy back at the next house. Guess they were just trying to redistribute their wealth.
We took a nice trip to Avila Beach over the 4th of July weekend. Melissa found a killer place to rent right on the beach, which just happened to have a perfect dual kitchen set up for the impending Burger-Off™. The girls had a nice time overall, but definitely preferred to hang out in the house or at the park rather than at the beach. They had a big problem with walking around in the sand for some reason.
The night of the 4th was the big Burger-Off™ showdown between me and Kathy. I offered my twist on the classic American cheeseburger with patriotic bun treatment and Captain Morgan chocolate shooters while Kathy countered with her Napa Valley Basil Burgers. Due to a grill malfunction we both had to share a grill, which didn’t affect the competition too much even though Kathy used a grill pan (the grilling equivalent of training wheels). In the end, both burgers turned out great but there could only be one winner. See if you can guess who won…
Ok, so I know you’ve all left us for dead. We’ll see if anybody actually notices, but I’m going to post a bunch of catch-up articles to get this blog up to date. Years from now, no one will ever know this blog wasn’t updated for a year. Here’s the latest video, where the girls display their extensive knowledge of human anatomy:
After the girls’ first swim day was a total bust, their second one went much, much better.
