Josh found this recipe in the Nob Hill Food magazine I brought home the other day. It was one that seemed to easy to be that good. I was wrong, it was easy and good!12 homemade tortillas later:)And skirt steak BBQ by the same husband that made me a beer:) I also tried a new cookie recipe that makes 1 dozen cookies. It was a pretty good one.

Race ready- kind of

Part of cleaning out the garage includes taking "Baby" out for a drive. Josh and Lilie headed out for a cruz around the neighborhood only to run out of gas. Good thing we have great neighbors and one of them towed them home. The clouds were so pretty

Take two off they go again- with a cell phone this time, in case it wasn't the empty gas tank.

Lock and loaded Uncle Dan helped lock Lilie in.

It was easier to clean the garage out with the girls like this:) I think they put a few miles on the truck and didn't go anywhere

But they had fun!

When Lilie was two she started having her teeth checked. So it was only natural that now that Ava is two and Lilie and I were due for a cleaning that Ava had a try at a tooth check up. It went so well the dentist decided to see if Ava would object to a full on cleaning. Well Ava didn't object at all she laid down and opened up.
Show me your teethScrap and scrub
Because it not a pediatrics dentist office Ava is the youngest person in the office to have her teeth cleaned:)
