Wednesday Weekly Recap - Family Fun Time!!

We've had family in town the past two weekends!! We had great fun spending lots of quality family time together!!

Who's having the most fun here? Chris or the kiddos? Riding on Dylan and Ella's plasma cars and Maggie's motorcycle bike.

Dylan got this awesome Dr. Seuss flip chart from Quentin for Christmas. I walked down the stairs and Ella was playing teacher. I had a complete flashback to when Andrea and I were kiddos!

Ella stayed the night on Saturday night, so we decided to recreate the green eggs and ham (bacon) on Sunday morning. We decided to up the ante and also make blue and red pancakes as well. As Aunt NiNi put it, all food is more fun with a little food coloring! I love the picture sequence dad cooks with Dylan a lot and has told me that he lets Dylan break eggs but it's not pretty. We decided to be adventurous and let Dylan break some of the eggs. The process basically involves Dylan cracking the egg on the counter and then squeezing it over the bowl. It's a highly amusing process as you can see below...

Ella shows D the "conventional" way to crack an egg using 2 hands and keeping the shell out of the bowl :)

D was appropriately wearing his spider-man shirt to climb at the park.

Last Friday, Grandma Toni was in town for a conference. She stayed the night and we had a great time playing!!

What better place to be than between two grandmas!?!

Outside fun!!

On Sunday, my dad made his homemade chicken soup with dumplings. The kiddos loved mashing the dumplings and the soup turned out great!
