Just some randomness from life lately. Wish I had something great and thoughtful to say tonight, but I don't so I'll just share some pictures.
What can I say, we love cookies around here! We came across these bear cookies in a kids cookbook, and Alex really wanted to make them. It turns out we were studying bears one day, and this went right along with it.
They look a little puffy, but turned out pretty cute and yummy! They are made with peanut butter, that's good enough for me!
This is the recipe we came across. A little peak...
April made these lemon heart sugar cookies one day. They were delicious, and she didn't even get a chance to frost them before we ate them all.
We went to Ikea one day with a friend, and had lunch while we waited for them to arrive. I didn't know it, but it was buy one adult entree get a kids free, so we ended up with 2 free kids meals. It was a pretty fun score.
It was a fun little outing.
April loves how Ikea oraganizes everything. She thought this shelf was appealing.
We love to get the chocolate cake at Ikea and split it up. Today we splurged and bought 2 to split between the 5 of us.
May the 4th was a fun day. We were at co-op so it was fun to see all the fun costumes. We didn't do much else that day.
We went to OMSI, and discovered they have one of these map sand tables. It is really cool to see the relief change as the sand gets moved around. It's a projection from above, and somehow it senses the changes, and makes the colors show whether there are mountains or water.
We recently let our little butterflies go. We had 5 little butterflies change and hatch from caterpillars. It was fun to hold them, and watch them fly away.
This is always a fun experience to watch the butterfly cycle. It never gets old, even for me!
I just love this shot. It is so perfectly positioned over his mouth. Butterfly kisses!
