We made it to Wisconsin! The drive through Nebraska was so much worse than normal. We had to sit on the interstate for 40 minutes for no apparent reason. Not to mention the 12 sections of construction we had to drive through. I am seriously not looking forward to the drive back! Despite all the delays our son did awesome, I think the kid was made for road trips!
I am on the other hand enjoying the freedom of this trip. If my 7 year old had his way, my husband and I would go back home for the week, and then just come pick him up on Friday. He is loving the time with Grandma and Grandpa, and doesn’t want us here. He wants us to go to dinner by ourselves, he wants them to put him to bed, he wants to play sports with them. Going home will be a rude awakening for all of us.
So far this summer I am obsessed with making different drinks. Usually I am content with iced tea and lemonade, but this year I keep mixing it up. This has to be one of my favorites though, and it is so easy. Plus, it has next to no calories! I think I drank the full 2 quarts in a day and a half. It is such a pretty color, this would be wonderful for a party. Putting in a few raspberries for a garnish would be a nice touch as well.
- 1 bag frozen raspberries (thawed), or 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 2 packages Crystal Light powder (enough for 2 quarts)
- In a blender or a food processor puree the raspberries. Pour through a strainer to remove the seeds. Dump the juice into a 2 quart pitcher. Add the Crystal Light (or your favorite powder lemonade mix). Fill up to the 2 quart line with water. Stir until well combined. Serve cold.
