Now that I've made one Pinterest recipe I've been inspired to actually make some more. I think the people who get their things pinned on Pinterest hire (or are) professional food photographers. Case in point:

And after all that Dave and I are only "meh" about them. Thankfully Sam will eat them.
A few weeks ago Sam and Rachel helped Dave put out the garbage, recycling, yard waste and food waste. Soon Dave and I won't have to do anything around here because these two will be pros!
Sam decided my hydrangeas should be decorated "for the green holiday." Do you see the grass he sprinkled on them? I guessed he meant Earth Day. Sam meant St Patrick's Day. Obviously that holiday made a big impression on him!
Rachel has decided that she is just too grown up for her highchair so she now often eats breakfast and, sometimes lunch, in Sam's old booster seat. Sometimes she just wants to kneel straight on the chair like a really big girl. I'm not ready for this yet. sniff.
Last Wednesday was a really warm day. We were outside for a bit in the morning and then after preschool Sam didn't even want to come inside. So I gave in and we had popsicles and the kids played in the sandbox and dug a (approved by me!) hole in the flowerbeds. By the time Dave got home we'd been outside and playing/digging/watering plants/weeding for well over two hours and we all needed baths/showers. In some ways I can't wait for the lazy days of summer! In other ways I know I'd be way more excited about them if we were living in our new (air conditioned) house :)
