Friday, it's Friday!

Here we are again, with the weekend just around the corner!  The weather promises to cooperate, and we plan to hit the local farmer's market tomorrow morning.

The big kids are finished classes for the summer, and they have been exploring some local trails.  Yes, my son is piggybacking the dog.  Yes, my daughter is in a tree.

I tried a new recipe this week. Ham and Cheese Tortellini from Kevin & Amanda.  It was really good, and I'll definitely make it again.  I doubled the recipe, and next time I may have to triple it.

One of the boys is participating in a dodgeball tournament at school today, which required the making of tie dyed shirts last night.  Good thing the boy has a crafty sister.

As always, there were many treasures to be discovered around the web this week.

This frittata, which I plan to try this weekend.

These lawn games look great for some backyard summertime fun.

Forcing my kids to share when they were small always felt counter-intuitive, but I could never quite put my finger on why.  Now someone smarter than me has articulated my thinking.  Why You Shouldn't Teach Your Kids to Share.

DIY Restoration Hardware Vintage Map Art.  I have lusted over this map, and maybe now I can attempt my own version for a fraction of the price.

Parmesan Zucchini Crisps, instead of chips.  Yum.

After reading this, Rob Lowe left me with tears in my eyes, feeling all of the kids growing up feelings.  Who knew this guy could write?

And that George Costanza is a pretty smart guy.
