The last two summers that we lived in New Jersey we watched one of my friends daughters. I called her my third child. We were total swim all day never leave the water types, and she was very afraid of water when she came to stay with us, she got over her fear pretty fast though.
This was the saddest moment the sign saying the pool was closing for the summer... Summer was ending, everyone was talking about who their teacher was going to be...I think Summer should be longer and the school year should be shorter. We miss our Third Child, we often talk about how nice it was to spend our days with her at the pool and hopefully when we get out to New Jersey someday again we can visit with her. We also miss time at a pool, but the fact was once you reached the age of twelve you were no longer allowed in the pool. I had always thought if we stayed in New Jersey that my children might have worked at the pool.
Did you spend your summers at a pool, a lake or the ocean?
Hope you are enjoying your summer!

My foodie adventure this past month was trying Cotton Candy Grapes...I had never heard of grapes that taste like cotton candy...I didn't really believe that they would taste like cotton candy either....
My daughter said after her first taste...Please get me a whole bowl....She likes sugar as much as I do...
The question is how??? How did they get the grapes to taste like cotton candy? My daughter thought that they coated the outside of the grape with a cotton candy flavor...My son thought that they used special flavored water to water the grape vines...
But from reading articles it sounds like it was how they combined different types of grapes....I'm not sure I totally understand the science behind it all, but I'm sure glad they made them...If you want to try these grapes you need to be at the store when they come in because they sell out really fast.
What new food have you tried?

I'm not sure why people are so into eating Artichoke...But I have had many people tell me they love it and they have told me how to cook it, and what they like to dip it in. Here is the before it's cooked state...
Artichoke recipes and decided to steam it in water with lemon,bay leaf and garlic.The above photo is the steamed Artichoke. People told me of two things they like to dip it in, melted butter (now that is something I like!) or Mayo...
Artichokes are the flower of a Thistle plant....
And because I tried something new and healthy I had a good treat...Strawberry shortcake...YUM!
So what healthy food do you think I should try next? Have you tried Artichoke? What is your favorite way to eat it?
