This week's Tuesday's With Dorie recipe for Floating Islands was chosen by Shari from Whisk: a food blog, but I regret to let you know that I did not make the recipe this week. So I'm sorry to Shari for not making her pick, but I just felt like it was something the kids wouldn't really like and I know Kevin wouldn't have cared for it, not to mention that I really did not need to be eating all the eggs and whole milk called for in the recipe. Please go check out all the other TWD'ers Floating Islands this week by visiting the Tuesday's With Dorie blog list and check out this interesting dessert.
Since you're here, though, check out some family pictures we took over the weekend. It was 70 degrees on Saturday and in the 60's a few days before that. We had a fun time playing outside on our neighbor's swing set, slide and trampoline (they've told us we can be there anytime we want and it really is nice to have a "park" so close by). We really need to get some play stuff of our own!
It has been YEARS since I was on a trampoline and the boys were playing "crack the egg", so I decided to jump on and see if they could "crack" me. (If you don't know, you hold your arms as tight as you can around your legs and they jump and bounce and try to get you to let go, or crack.) Thankfully, Kevin didn't think to grab the camera and get any pictures of me. Here's a few of the others, including Kevin. I don't think they boys were able to "crack" him.
Scott and Parker battling it out.
Love the action shots.
Sam gave it a try on the trampoline.
Taylor just wanted to swing and swing and be pushed on the swing.
Check out the Barney Butter t-shirts Jennifer sent us after I emailed her about how great Barney Butter is!
Thanks, Jennifer! Barney Butter is some awesome almond butter that is so smooth (not gritty) and perfect tasting and you might know is also not made in a factory with any peanuts--no salmonella! Lovin' it on everything!
Can we take a decent picture to save our lives? Nope. But they're still cute.
That's as good as it gets, Folks.
Taylor asked Kevin to make him a paper airplane the other day. So he made one with a piece of paper, then he made all the rest of these with just one other piece. Pretty cool! Taylor was thrilled.
Hey, check out my homemade Almond Joy Candy on my last post if you missed it. They are SO good and so easy to make!
