Catching up on June

10072_10151702359306663_37281707_n eI am trying here, trying to get caught up with my blogging.  As this is Maisie’s scrap book, I really need to keep it going and up to date otherwise there will be no pictures or stories for her to look back on one day.  I did my major catch up post of the things that kept us busy in May so now to catch up to present day.  June began with a little time off as Maisie’s gym was closed for a few days before her team camp, so we took full advantage of the rare days off.  Maisie and I spent some days biking along the Silver Comet Trail.  It’s an easy ride along the trail, shaded and pretty flat which is great for Maisie as she doesn’t have any gears.

969722_10151469502499205_1815169289_nWe had some big storms pass though the area.  Thankfully we were safe, just some overturned plants & patio furniture but from our family room windows we could see the top of the tornado as it hit just a couple of streets away from us.

Maisie had a couple other play dates at friend’s homes but not piccies  :-(

I really haven’t seen Maisie do much tumbling on the floor so it was great to see her do round-off, double back handspring, back tuck.  She makes it look oh-so easy!

Now that I’m caught up to date with my postings, hopefully I’ll stay caught up!

Believe it or not, I posted another new recipe on my other currently neglected blog, Cook Lisa Cook.  This recipe is for Cheesy Cauli Mashed “Potatoes”, a delicious lower carb version of traditional mashed potatoes and just as delicious.  Click on the link or the picture to be taken to the recipe.
