What's Cooking??

These little cuties were cooking up a storm on Saturday at Young Chef's Academy. Tricia and I both purchased Groupon's a while back thinking we'd need to use them to avoid the heat outside. Little did we know, we'd end up using them on a Saturday filled with rain and not hot at all. 

The kids were in the kitchen while the parent's looked on from the other side of a plate glass window. 

Sophia just looked sad the entire time.

It was almost like she was afraid of doing it wrong. But there were no tears, just those big brown eyes looking so sad.

I'm so glad these two buddies were doing the class together. Otherwise, I'm not sure if Sophia would have done it.

I loved the cutting tools they used so much that I had to buy one. Just $5 and now Sophia can use it in our kitchen.

"Lettuce?? I don't want any stinkin' lettuce!"~ my impression of what must be going through Atticus's head. 

They took a little break to get some wiggles out by singing songs about food.

Then it was time for Sophia's favorite part....making homemade lemonade.

Sophia loved squeezing the crap out of her lemons. And I just love Atticus's facial expressions. So cute!

After working so hard to make all that yummy food, it was finally time to taste it. Yum! Sophia shared it with me and I have to say it was all yummy!

 And I have to also say, our kids were the most well behaved kids in that kitchen and they were the youngest.  

After all that sitting, we thought we should take our little chefs to do some running. So we headed over to the Cook's Children indoor playground.

It was so good to see Atticus and Tricia! Let's get something on the calendar soon before we get booked up.

September Birthdays

This past Saturday, we gathered at my parent's house to celebrate our September birthdays (Koby and my grandma). Koby  turned 14 and my grandma turned 89.

And of course the cousins had a blast hanging out together.
Who knew bubble wrap could be so fun?

Some of the family decided to play football. Sophia is actually old enough to play now.

And appeared to have a blast.

And more importantly, we got to see Myra. And I think Myra had just as much fun playing football as the kids did.

I think Sophia might just be ready for team sports.

It was a fun day filled with good food and family!
Happy birthday Koby and grandma. And Amy, thanks for bringing Myra. It was good to see here.

To Myra, With Love

People have been asking how Sophia is dealing with not having Myra around. She was very sad at first but she understands and instead of crying about it, she decided to make Myra a picture.

And then she decided that she must play in her Halloween costume. She's going to be an owl. We didn't miss the Pottery Barn boat this year. So she can play in it as much as she wants...gotta get our moneys worth.

She loves it!
