We’re in the home stretch, my friends! School supplies have been bought, vacations have (mostly) been taken, and we started the last of our park & rec activities this week: gymnastics! I have to admit – at this point in the summer, starting a brand new activity was not high on my list of desires. If you ask me, we’ve already had our fill! Of course, the kids would beg to differ. They’re just SO excited to FINALLY be taking a gymnastics class. And honestly? After watching them these past two days, I wonder why I didn’t sign them up long ago!
Especially Greta. Girl’s got some talent! She’s been rocking it on the balance beam and doing flips on the rings and she made it more than halfway up the rope climb on her first try…..which is further than I ever made it as a kid! I’ve always thought she would make a great little gymnast. But seriously!? Why did I wait until NOW to get her into a class???
I guess some things are just like that. Good ideas that get put on the back burner until you finally decide to give them a try. Kinda like the “Luau” birthday party we have planned for the girls in just a few weeks. Something I’ve always wanted to do….but for some reason, haven’t made happen until now. Honestly, I can’t wait. Have you ever gone shopping for luau decorations? There are SO many choices…..and they’re all SO fun! 3 words: GIANT DRINK UMBRELLA. Life-size, in fact! Need I say more??
Of course, the decoration are just half the fun. The other half? The FOOD! When I think luau, I think pig roast. Or…..hot dogs! Especially if they’re Ball Park Park’s Finest. I love these hot dogs because they’re packed with big, bold flavors and infused with premium seasoning you can actually see. They’re made with 100 percent beef and contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors, colors or fillers, and no nitrates or nitrites. Bottom line – they’re delicious. Luau-worthy, I do believe! Especially with a side of my sweet Hawaiian Coleslaw! It’s packed with fresh pineapple, red pepper, shredded carrots, crunchy macadamia nuts, and a sweet, creamy honey dressing and it’s the PERFECT side dish for Ball Park Park’s Finest hot dogs!
Summer may be winding down, but there’s still plenty of time for grilling. As we speak, in fact, Ball Park brand is attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for Longest Team Barbecue Marathon!

I can’t wait for ours…..it’s going to be delicious!
