Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

                               Q: Why did the lemon stop half way across the road? 

                                                     A: He ran out of juice.

School is *finally* out for the summer & like the lemon our kids are out of juice. Our kids were released almost a week later this year due to snow days in the winter.  I don't know about you or your kids but this year my kids were D O N E.  Maybe it was the combination of the sun setting later in the evening, end of year parties and so on that have worn mine out.  Maybe it's just that they need some time to sleep in late & lounge around in pajamas all day.  

We're looking forward to lounging days & summer fun.  Hubby pulled the camping trailer out of the garage in preparation of visiting friends. He tested the mechanical side of things; tire pressure, break lights & turning lights.  Everything needed a little help.  We're excited for a friends 29th birthday party, we'll actually it's not his 29th but I loved the humor in the invite anyway.  Heck, who's counting. I'm not.
