Happy Homemaker Monday 08.08.16

Good Afternoon!!  Putting this together late, my days are all mixed up, didn’t realize it was Monday!!  These are our last days of summer, we start school on Wednesday, UGH!!  Yeah, the summer went by way too fast.  Had a good weekend, more on that later.  Tomorrow we will be going to the Back to School Celebration at the park.  Enjoy your week!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.




Ooey Gooey Sugar Cookies. Enough said.

Over the weekend, they held the first round of the P1 AquaX Great Lakes Series, jet ski races on Lake Michigan.

Always glad to see the EMTs on standby.

They had several races on Saturday and Sunday. Me, Liv and the boys headed out on Saturday, and it was a gorgeous day. Sunny, but a cool breeze. The breeze was kicking up some waves on the lake, which made the race probably more challenging. The course was set up from the pier to the break wall. We were able to stand along the board walk, and get an up close look as the jet skiers flew by, kicking up the waves and sending a nice mist our way. The organizers of the event had a drone flying over head, probably taking pictures. Those things creep me out, feel like I am being watched, lol.

The races went on for about 30 minutes, had no idea how they kept up with the laps, but there was a guy set up on the large gazebo with tons of speakers, announcing the race and playing music. This was the first year out here, and not many people were there. But it was really fun to watch.



After the race

I have seen this video before, but recently a friend posted it to their FB page. I think this is absolutely incredible, playing ping pong with nunchucks!! I became a Bruce Lee fan when I saw the movie Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.

    I posted up late too. Crazy end of summer crunch here too. Happy school time to you guys this week! It’s been flying so fast – my brain can’t keep up!! 😛

    Love the funny – especially since everyone is obsessed with the weather where I live! We have such crazy temp fluctuations on any given day – but not quite to that degree!! Lol!

    Those cookies look amaze balls – marshmallow?? Really? YUMMY!
    The races looked like they were very exciting! I bet my kiddos would have loved watching that too. But I’m with you about the drones all the way. No bueno.

    Love your pic an quote too. Summer memories are the best ::sigh:: But I can’t get over that ping pong video!! That’s nuts – how can it be real?? Craziness. 🙂

    Happy week ahead CareBear. xoxo
