Ezra and his dad were invited to GMA for a father’s day grill off … which was postponed to the last day in June.  Their challenge was to create a side dish to compliment the main dish  (which was Tony Roma ribs).  They made Ezra’s great grandmother’s potato salad with some minor changes like mustard mixed in with mayo, home grown dill and keeping the skins on the red potatoes.  We won a grill and a year’s supply of ribs!  And best of all they got to meet the GMA crew:

This is NOT a paid ad — but just a full admission that my girl (and her cousin Stella) are pretty nuts about American Girl Dolls.  When cousins Stella and Alison came to town there was no denying that a trip to the AGD Cafe was in order, and we all had a lovely time (including the dolls!)  Alison and I have to admit that the food was pretty yummy and having the dolls seated at the table – well that just made Zoe’s day. Extra special thanks to Stella and Alison for the cafe date and to cousin Eve for the American Girl Doll that Zoe loves to tote around!

We skipped off to the country for some much needed lake, tennis and blueberry picking .  Somewhere along the way we found Michael Wainwright’s studio – where they had a day of free pizza, ice cream and ceramic painting/enameling that the kids loved!  And of course we couldn’t miss a day at the Lime Rock  again to check out some more speedy cars.
