P-P-P-Poker Face

Hubby and I hit up the pub for an afternoon drink and some bar food.

I really, really wanted a nice frozen strawberry daiquiri but the pub’s blender was broken. :( But at least we had some free serenading compliments of this 16 year old local who swung by to show off his talents – guitar-playing and singing. I overheard him say he’d been playing guitar less than a year but he sounded pretty good to me. Apparently he’s going to try out for American Idol when he turns 17. Go kid, go!

I ended up getting a vanilla-vodka-coke and some chicken fingers with fries. Hubby and I split the eats as an afternoon snack.

We took a minute to walk around and discovered these GIANT red flowers! They were as big as my head!

Back at the house I whipped up some sauteed zucchini and onion.

Bailey hung out in the kitchen hoping someone would drop something. lol

When he figured out he wouldn’t get anything he hopped up on this cozy arm chair where I was casually reading some of my magazines.

Hubby’s mom whipped a variety of flatbreads on tortillas with Alouette cheese and toppings like crab, salmon and even a veggie one using some of the zucchini/onion mixture I cooked.

Plus raw veggies and marinated mozzarella.

Turned a piece of my banana bread into a dessert by toasting it, buttering it, topping it with cinnamon/sugar and placing it over ice cream.

I just had a small piece toasted in a toaster oven.

Plus I had this Diana-sized Ben & Jerry’s froyo in Chocolate Fudge Brownie. It was the perfect size!

Bailey hopped up on the couch for some more cuddle time…

Don’t let em see your p-p-p-poker face!

PS After blogging this post, THIS song has been stuck in my head all night! And yes, I do mean the Glee version. ;)

What games do you like to play on family vacations?

    Great question! We always play Trivial Pursuit, Cranium, Apples to Apples, and Dutch Blitz (a card game). They can get pretty heated, but its oh so fun. To me, its my favorite type of family bonding.

    Haha, this post reminded me of a story -

    Some friends and I met at a wine bar one evening to hang out and have some wine and appetizers. There was a guy singing and playing guitar just a few feet from our table, and he started an acoustic, slow and (attempting to be) seductive version of Poker Face. It was all we could do not to laugh, and a couple of my friends even had to get up and leave the table!

    My sister and I are really into games when we get together. Mostly we play card games, cranium and pictionary. We have to make sure we mix the teams up as when sis and her husband are a team they are unbeatable. They toured the world together and spent months in a campervan playing games, I swear they are psychic!

    My family usually plays video games when we are together, like Wii sports or Rock Band! :)
