Homemade PlayDoh

We’ve not had a lot of time in the kitchen despite being home all day. I fit in spurts here and there when the kiddos seem to be calm. Otherwise the day is filled with meals, playtime, nap times, and repeat. That Crab is getting so big and energetic he’s wearing us all out! We did however get a chance...

Festive Simple Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Sugar Cones

I almost forgot to share with you a little fun idea we learned from Nerdy Nummies! For the July 4th holiday we made homemade chocolate dipped cones.

Lazy Summer Days

I’ve been a bit lazy this summer. Maybe not lazy like I was in my 20’s after a long run, but lazy in that I haven’t been working out as I had hoped and I’m operating without a game plan… For now. I have a membership to the local indoor pool for the month of July, and my goal is...
