I made a homemade pizza for the first time in a while. Man, do I love homemade pizza!
The little kids and I picked up a couple of friends and headed to Sunshine Park. I totally underestimated the difficulty of directing a four-year old and a three-year old on bikes plus a two-year old on a tricycle while pulling a two-year old and a one-year old in a wagon down the street where people were dropping off kids for camp. Yeah. Duh, me. But thanks to a kind woman's help we made it all in one piece! I think everyone had a good time and was ready for a popsicle when we got back home.
We tried banana "ice cream" this week. You just slice up ripe bananas and freeze the slices then stick them in the blender and blend until smooth. You can eat it right away for a "soft serve" texture or refreeze it for something more like typical ice cream out of a carton; we liked the refrozen better. It was a great cold treat that is 100% healthy. I think it would be great with some granola, too.
A friend gave me this beautiful sign this week. She and her family are preparing to move to Africa soon to ministered there. Thanks for thinking of me, Ashley!
Ryland love, love, loves playing with my camera. He had just taken about 100 pictures on it one morning when he discovered this little camera at Wal-mart later that day. He never asks for toys but he wanted this one and, believe me, if I'd had an extra $40 it would be his. = (
While we were at Wal-mart, Ryland ended up falling asleep sitting up in the buggy. Little did we know, this was the beginning of him being sick.
Unfortunately, Ryland suffered through a sick day this week. Poor little guy.
And guess what happens if we can't go outside for a whole day? *Certain* people don't want to take a nap.
This morning Ryland felt a little better so we went to the playground. He was still kind of tuckered out and sat in my lap most of the time but Jathan and Piper ran around and played.
Cuddles from my babies. = )
Piper just loves the playground. She walks all around now and especially likes drawing with chalk.
