There is nothing better than a warm blanket on a chilly night EXCEPT for watermelon and ice cream with the family in the summer!
The Conner family finally got to be together (due to Covid restrictions) for watermelon, ice cream and fellowship and what a great time had by all. Not everyone could come but for those that could, we surely enjoyed our time together.
The little ones enjoyed their time together so much. We had a red neck slip and slide, little pool, water tables, watermelon seed spitting contest, ice cream galore, drinks, cake, and watermelon! I mean really, what else could a kid want.....OR ADULT!
We surely did enjoy our special family gathering.
My little tribe also got together for a pool party with fresh baked cream cheese pastries. I baked some fresh cranberry and orange muffins but didn't carry them. LOL! I sorta hoarded them up! Recipe to follow for those muffins! Wishing I had one of the cream cheese pastries right now though!
This sweet grandgirl was in her first ever dance recital and she done so good. She received her first medal ever! She also won the award for being most encouraging. What a wonderful reward to receive. Do we EVER need encouragement!
We are truly blessed with family.
I had another baking spell.....Lord help me Jesus! I made large batches of jumbo Cranberry and Orange muffins, Blueberry muffins and Chocolate Chip muffins. Some to enjoy at home and I froze quite a bit for a family trip coming up. My husband said these Cranberry Orange muffins was the BEST EVER! Sharing the recipe with you. Here is the link:
Sally has some awesome recipes by the way.
Here is to hoping that you all have a wonderful week and take some time if you can to enjoy your family this week. Let's continue to lift one another up with all that we have happening in this world. I surely keep thinking y'all that the Eastern sky is going to split most any second and that mighty trumpet is going to sound.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
