June from my phone and some cousin time

Nothing better than a Giants game with your cousin.  These boy are sports fanatics.

Chelsea kept asking me to make macaroons.  Knowing that they were a somewhat difficult cookie to make, we took a class together.  

They were of course delicious.  We are going to try and make them on our own this summer.
