|This week is so strange...
Anyone else feel that way? I don't know if it's the heat, the lack of vacation time for the 4th, the heat...yeah, I'm thinking it's mostly the heat. Tony and I worked yesterday, so there was little fun had. We both have a lot going on, so that's not a bad thing, but we both felt guilty for not celebrating traditionally with the boys. It was way too hot to do anything outside other than sit in the lake and there was no way we were getting anywhere close to Lake Lanier on the 4th. Hello crazy town. There was an accident there a few weeks ago that has left us feeling extremely cautious about venturing during the busiest times, especially with kids. So, we stayed in.
Instead of the traditional grilling out, we also opted for a different meal...
Tony asked for peppers and onions on my gluten free crust.
The 3 boys asked for ham and pineapple on my gluten free crust.
There pizza was beautiful and really stole the show. They devoured it in no time! I should have made them two!
Dessert last night was fruit for all! The watermelon was perfectly ripe! I have a serious problem around good watermelon...I can't stop eating it!
I swear, after not having pizza for years, it is now my new favorite thing to make at home. My nephew that's visiting us is sensitive to gluten (we believe he has celiac as well), so he's on a gluten free diet. Max is now eating gluten free and has been headache free since making the choice to give it a try. It was a gluten free pizza fest here last night!
While it wasn't a traditional celebration, it did end up being a good day. We let the boys have the bigger tv and they watched movies until 11:00. Today is about the same, but we're going to the dinner theater to watch Back To The Future! This time no dinner though, just treats (we are cheap like that).
So, did you do the traditional 4th of July celebration? Anyone else have extreme addictions to watermelon? Makes for getting extra exercise at night when you have to get up to go to the bathroom a few extra times!
