Look how weird Will’s foot looks in this photo. Like, what is that. It looks like his toes are eight inches long and way up on his foot. He’s like WOLVERINE! But on a foot. And a baby. And not knives. So it’s basically nothing like Wolverine at all. Never mind.

So where are you all this weekend?! Are you swimming? Grilling? Fire worksing? Hanging with friendsing? Lounging by the pool with a beersing? We’re doing our traditional thang in Fayetteville. Which is swimming, grilling, fire worksing, hanging with friendsing and lounging by the pool with a beersing.

Tell you what, if you happen to be traveling with little ones this weekend, I’ve actually come up with ten completely realistic and serious tips for road trippin’ with toddlers. Peep it! (if you dare)

So, how often do you brush your toddler’s teeth? Like once a month?

I’m kidding! What, twice a month? Once a month?

Guess what these became! First of all, our garden is a boom boom boomin’ right now. Not yet with tomatoes, but we grew these pickling cucumbers and made THEE CRAZIEST pickles with them. I’m talking fresh dill from our garden, dried habaneros from last year’s garden, some whole peppercorns and coriander. And other stuff that I can’t remember because I was in a love coma when Aaron was making them. I do have an older pickling recipe on the blog, but honestly, I think these might be better. Want me to make more next week and show you? Because you desperately need some Weidner pickles in your life and face and belly and face and face.

Ummmmmm, we had these sticky buns for breakfast and I don’t think I’ll ever recover. Matter of fact, I’m actually dead and this is my ghost typing this blog post. My ghost needs to wash her hair.

Have a fab fab fab holiday weekend! Tell me what you’re cooking, because I need some serious ideas for tomorrow’s cookout.

‘Mericuh, you guys.

    That was a post about weird toddler feet, pickles, and sticky buns. You slay me every time. I have a grown-up challenge coming up, and I just worry that my enthusiasm can't be contained. But when I read your posts I see how great it is when enthusiasm is left unbridled. I'm just trying to not be a spaz in front of important people. You're doing just fine. Mwah.
