Summer is here! Another fine afternoon spent swimming, all of us have our burn marks to prove it. Swimming always makes me tired and not likely to feel like making dinner. Being burnt to a crisp makes it 2x as bad. Thankfully the hubby got off in time to grill this mighty tasty chicken. The chicken was moist and had wonderful flavor. So often it skin-on chicken that is in a grilling recipe. Skinless seems to dry out faster, but not with this one. I highly recommend this sauce for your next chicken BBQ!

We took the 4 kiddos to see Cars 2 tonight. They’ve been anticipating it’s arrival, it came and we made them wait (aren’t we meanies?) We were waiting for daddy to have an evening at home so we could all go. #4 was on the edge of his seat the whole time, I’m not even sure if he blinked. At various intervals I would hear a gasp or “awesome!” When it was over he says “We hafta get that movie!”

The previews for the next few movies look promising too. Muppets (yes, we can’t wait), Happy Feet 2, and there was a new Spy Kids movie that they seemed very excited about.
