Last Pool Day at Oma & Opa’s

You know near the end of senior year in high school, when you get all sappy, and you’re all, “Last time we’ll drive in White Lightning together!”, and “Last time we’ll drink beers at the town’s Conservation Land” (which we in no way ever did, Oma & Opa)? Well, the end of the summer was a lot like that for me. We had to say goodbye to a lot of things, including Oma’s pool.

Fortunately, we had a special guest appearance by our very favorite guest star at Oma & Opa’s, Dada. He must have heard “watch this!” a thousand times.

Keep 'em separated
You know the song about Veggie Stix? The one that goes, “You gotta keep ’em separated.”

That evening, Opa made us his secret-recipe ribs and Nana’s secret-recipe potato salad, and Oma made us not-so-secret-recipe blackberry napoleons (Last Thursday night summer dinner at Oma & Opa’s – no!!!).

Thursdays at Oma & Opa’s have been so wonderful, we’re planning on doing Sunday dinners now that the summer is over.
