We traveled to Washington state by car the beginning of August and went through 8 different states before we hit the border. The trip was a little over 2,300 miles from our home in Michigan but we made it here safely.
We really enjoy being with Chelsea, Kenny, and their 2 kids. We go to the park almost every morning and in this picture, Laila and I are sitting on the “Big Rocks” for a selfie.
This was Aiden’s first time at the movies and we saw Minions. He laughed through the whole movie and absolutely loved it!
Here Laila and Papa are making their first log cabin with his antique Lincoln logs. And the little double logs on the outside are campfires, Laila said.
One day we went to the spray park and both Laila and Aiden really enjoyed it!
We’ve also been busy in the kitchen and made our ‘One and Only’ Carrot Cake (twice), our Classic Meat and Cheese Lasagna, an Easy Skillet Mexican Corn (which would be perfect for Labor Day) and some Dark Chocolate Energy Clusters that are not only delicious but are a healthier snack too.
So, how was your August? Are the kids back to school? Or perhaps you have a child going to college for the first time? Oh, that’s a hard one. But, it does get better, so hang in there.

August’s Sweetest Comments
Dianne says on Simple Strawberry Sauce
Thanks, Heather for this easy, tasty, versatile strawberry sauce! Our Strawberry season is coming to an end – had to make this sauce which probably will be my last basket of berries – of course, it landed on some vanilla ice cream! YUM!
Charlotte says on Dark chocolate energy clusters
Oh my! I could eat a couple of these right now. YUM!\
Mike says on Asain pepper steaks
Absolutely outstanding! Will be making again.
Charlene says on Butterscotch Rice Krispies Treats
MY MOST FAVORITE recipe!!! Yum~ Thanks for sharing! SO good! 🙂 Char
Barb says on Mom’s Sloppy Joes with Chicken Gumbo Soup
I’ve made these several times. We love them. I usually brown the ground beef ahead of time and have it in the freezer for lots of recipes. So it’s quick too. I do add chili powder, and I broil the buns with garlic butter on them.
Christine says on Walnut Apple Bread
I love this recipe! The bread was absolutely amazing! I’ve made it many times now and it is very good, everyone loves it!
Carmela says on Unstuffed Cabbage Soup
In the soup pot simmering now. Smells great and such a simple easy peasy recipe.
