Food on Friday

I'm starting a new series. Actually I started it before but didn't keep up with it, didn't have a fun button, didn't promote it, etc. Food on Friday will now be a regular feature.

With my family's crazy, busy schedule, sometimes getting food on the table can be a challenge. I'm constantly looking for meals that are easy to make and that the small people will enjoy. I know I am not the only mama who has this challenge. Right?

So starting next Friday, each week I will share a recipe that I've tried recently. I'd like to invite you all to share your recipes as well, so I'll have a link up each week too. If you want to join in, you can add the Food on Friday button to your posts or to the sidebar of your blog.


Leave me a comment letting me know if you'd like to be added to my mailing list to get a reminder email to link up your recipe each week. Thanks!

Alphabet Walk


The girls and I took an alphabet walk last week. Armed with my camera, we set out through the neighborhood to take pictures of items for each letter of the alphabet. Thankfully the morning was relatively mild weather-wise, so we didn't sweat to death. The girls and I took turns using the camera to capture each shot.

This was a lot of fun and was a good challenge for Sassy Pants who is learning to read. I think we may do this many more times this year, especially just Sassy and me. There are so many other places we can do alphabet walks. I definitely think we'll do another when we head to the beach later this summer. Also the local nature trails, state parks, etc., would be fun.

Here's what we found:
A - ant hill
B - bushes
C - car
D - dandelion
E - electrical box
F - flag
G - grass
H - house
I - insect (there's a little orange and black striped centipede in there)
J - junk
K - kiddie pool
L - lamppost
M - mailbox




N - number
O - orange car
P - Palmetto tree
Q - quiet
R - red mailbox
S - stop sign
T - truck
U - under (She was under the tree.)
V - violet (the color)
W - wall
X - x in sticks
Y - yard
Z - zip line

Cupcake Camp

I love to find fun things for my girls to do during the summer. (Okay, lest you think that I don't want The Boy to have fun, rest assured he has PLENTY to keep him busy this summer.)

When the local cupcake bakery Sweet posted on Facebook about their cupcake camps, I was definitely interested. For only $25 per child, they were offering an hour and a half where the girls would learn to ice and decorate 2 cupcakes, make cake truffles, and get a tour of the kitchen.


If you look carefully, you can see icing on Sassy Pants's hat and chocolate on her face.

Here are their creations. You can tell that sprinkles were quite the decorating rage.

Goofing Around in Glasses

While we were at Claire's getting the twins' ears pierced, the girls had a great time trying on all the fun sunglasses.
