I haven’t been nannying much these past several weeks because I’ve been busy (and summer is the slower period), but I did pick up a few days last week with the most adorable pair of sisters. But seriously, kids these days seem to be more than content to stay inside and play on iPads and watch TV all day. I had to get us out of the house, so the girls rode their bicycles one day, and we took a walk to the park another.

Whew, summer is just flying by. And this year. I can’t believe we have already lived in Los Angeles for close to 7 months. But we are taking a short trip back to Texas soon, and we cannot wait. The hardest part will be trying to fit in all the food we want to eat while we are in Austin for just a couple of days! Mexican food is definitely on the top of that list. I’ve been trying to find that great Mexican restaurant and margarita here in LA but still no luck. Honestly, I don’t know if these restaurants are putting any tequila in these margaritas…I sure can’t taste it (and I’m very sensitive to the taste of alcohol)! Oh well, the search continues.

It has been crunch time on this list! We knocked out three “projects” this past week, and I feel so accomplished. Whitney is excited to pull the deep fryer out, so we should be using that soon as well. Here’s to summer!
