Tell No One by Harlan Coben

This brainy idea came into my head that I would sell stuff outside our house since we live on a busy corner and a VERY BUSY SPOT for the Pioneer day celebration. There is a parade in the morning, followed by an all-day fair and ending with nighttime fireworks.
We sold soda pop, water and candied popcorn (and our parking spots). We made about $140. Not too bad for sitting outside all day with friends.... chatting away and BBQing.
the kids played with their neighbor friends all day long... swimming and coming up with all sorts of make believe
during fireworks, I held Mason on my lap while I continued to sell stuff with one free hand. (Nick had to go to work) Then Sean came over and laid his head in my lap while standing next to me. He also fell asleep and it grew difficult to take care of "customers" Here are BAD picture of the fireworks.... but hey, they're taken right from our front yard... NOT too shabby. They set them off just across the street
Business was good, kids were tired. Luckily, my kind neighbors helped me bring sleeping kids/stuff in the house.
I traded some glow necklaces for a Mountain Dew. I traded a clown some water for balloon light sabers for my kids. I traded this cute necklace for a pop and popcorn.
Happy Pioneer Day!! (a Utah state holiday for the non-Utards!)

I brought Cooper to swim lessons today... and no one was there! I totally got the wrong day.
Cooper and Sean went and played at a friends house for a few hours.
I spent most of the day in the kitchen.... I made zuccini bread, 2 batches of apricot jam and french bread. I also worked for 4 hours. I'm exhausted!
After dinner, Mason found the butter and decided to butter his own bread... among other things.

Couldn't resist taking a picture of this coffee shop called, "Jack Mormon Coffee Co." Once again... I had one of those "oh yeah, I forgot that I live in Utah" moments.
But the highlight of my day was going with my friend Teresa to see our friend's new twins at the hospital.... OH MY they are sooooo cute. Samantha was 5lbs 3oz and Lance was 6lbs....
