#Pinterest to the rescue on rainy afternoons!!!

Like many other I've become a Pinterest Addict!!! On some rainy afternoons this week it was a blessing.


"Mom what can I do??..." said mopey child looking  out at the dreary weather " NO SWIMMING TODAY- SO BOARD!"

"Let's check out my Pinterest Boards and pick a few ideas to do" said the  ingenuous Mother ( yep that's ME!)

Eggs on a Grill pinned on my FoodFun board from food.com
