a good day

 We've been blessed to acquire some awesome toys lately.  We got this huge box of race track components from a family whose boys had never really played with them.  G's been having a lot of fun setting up different tracks and launching the cars.  He even made this cute little banner that says "Darda (the name of the company) racing day coming soon".  Then we asked him when that day was and he said "mmmm I don't know."  I suggested he could have it on Monday when he got the cars back, which had been taken because he wouldn't get dressed for church.  So he crossed out the "coming soon and wrote "(tomorrow)" above the crossed out part.  Love this boy.
 At 4 PM I was wondering what to make for dinner and decided to make up some lasagna.  Wahoo!  I have a new favorite way to make a ton of food.
1 box of lasagna noodles
2 jars of spaghetti sauce
1 lb sausage
8 cloves of garlic
12 oz ricotta cheese
6 eggs
1 box of frozen spinach
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup of Mozzerella cheese

I Cut each noodle into 3 pieces and laid it across the pan.  So each layer is really just one noodle.  
 I was able to do 4 layers, so I guess that means there were 16 noodles in the pack.

The beach at the pier is having a major make over with dredging.  They've put 10 feet of sand onto the beach all the way out to the end of the pier.  It's mind boggling to think how much sand that is, or how much it must cost.  G is standing here trying to scale the 6 foot drop to get back up on top of the dredged sand.2
