A Swinging Good Time

I just love my kids. What a good ending to a good day.

LLUMC Children's Health Fair

For our May field trip we attended the Loma Linda University Medical Centers Children's Health Fair. It was lots of fun. There was so much to see and do. Here are a FEW of the things we did there. We will definitely be doing this again next year.

We brought our dolls to have their checkups done.
They were weighed and measured.
We checked their temperature and blood pressure.
They were given their immunizations.
We checked their eyes and ears.
Both Belle and Dory were very healthy :)
We had our fingers cast.
We also listened to the bodies heart beat.

Almost Crawling, Yeah!

Our Little one is almost crawling, and I am very excited. I'm hoping that she will be walking before her little sister gets here.

You Lookin' At Me?

I got a new (pink) camera for Mother's Day and I've been having lots of fun with it.

Happy Birthday Uncle G

Happy Birthday Greg, the kids have been talking about your birthday all day. I hope you had a great day and got to do something fun. I have your gift and was going to take it to the post office then realized I didn't have your address, so I will just let mom and meli take it up to you. Hope you don't mind, plus it means I don't have wrap it (airline rules). This is my fav pic of you but it is from 2005. I think I need some updated pics, what do you think?

Shake & Make Ice Cream

Here is the ice cream recipe. It is from "The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions". Ann, one of our super cool moms at school did this for her parent project.

What You Will Need:
2 Tbs. sugar, 1 cup milk or half and half, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 6 Tbs. rock salt, 1 pint-sized zip bag, 1 gallon-sized zip bag, ice.

How To Concoct It:
1. Fill the gallon zip bag half with ice and add rock salt. 2. Pour sugar, milk/half and half, and vanilla into pint zip bag and seal. 3. Place pint bag into the gallon bag and seal. 4. Shake the bag for 5-7 minutes. 5. Open small bag and enjoy.

Have fun making all types of flavors with fruit puree's or crushed candies. It is really good, although personally I have a super sweet tooth so I would add a little more sugar, but that's just me :)

I Scream You Scream We All Scream For Ice Cream

Lizzie made Shake and Make ice cream in class today. It sounded like so much fun we made it again tonight. Even Baby Cora liked it :)

Shake Shake Shake

It really only took 5 minutes.

Mmmm Good!

Sometimes it's just easier with straw.

Happy Birthday Grandma!!!
