Today was the first day of school.
I hate it.
Today was the first time ever that neither one of the boys wanted me to walk them in on the first day. Maybe because they’re at the same school and Ryder felt secure with Lincoln being there.
He assured me that he stilled loves me. I’m sure he saw the tears welling up in my eyes. I hate each new school year.
I like hanging with them, we had so much fun this Summer. I’m glad they’re well-adjusted and not needy. They have good teachers and I know they’ll have a good year. I still miss them and their silliness all day!
So I’m feeling nostalgic, sharing pics of some of our fun Summer activities!
Triple Decker Ice Cream Cones – now, that’s got Summer written all over it!!
We vacationed at the beach, Orange Beach, AL, for a week!
Lincoln participated in his first swim meet. He did great and had a great time!
Lincoln had a spend-the-night birthday celebration. No sleep took place!
We had a fun day at Incredible Pizza, where they played video games, rode go-carts, played putt-putt golf and ate some incredible pizza!
Lincoln really is part fish. When he’s not practicing on the swim team, he’s swimming for fun.
He practices his ‘corkscrew’ dives.
We watched golf and we played golf.
The boys love the new Par 3 at our local club.
We bought a golf cart and love cruising the neighborhood to see what’s going on.
Slow Cooker Spicy Sweet Country-style Ribs
I know you’re thinking, enough with the Jones Family Memories! Ok, ok, let’s get to the recipe.
I’m always looking for great tasty dinner options that are easy and don’t require a lot of hands-on time for me in the kitchen. Slow-cookers are a great way to incorporate in my plan and I don’t always just make soup in them.
My Slow Cooker Spicy Sweet Country-style Ribs are perfect for the meat-eating boys. I chose Country-style cut for this recipe because they are the meatiest ribs. I usually find them in packages of 6 to 8 ribs. These ribs become really tender using the low and slow method in the slow cooker. If I have time, cook on the lowest setting for 6 to 8 hours.
Ingredients you’ll need

Basically, everything goes in the slow cooker. You can sear the ribs first on the stove, but if you’re short on time you can skip that step.
The ribs will be fork tender after a few hours in the slow cooker.
