Summer Days

This has been another lovely summer day. I'm especially loving all of the rain that's come our way in the afternoons. We had a play date this morning with yummy food (coffee!), swimming & fellowship. The kids were exhausted when we got home - even Addison, who never naps, fell asleep for a couple of hours!

After the early bedtime the kids had last night I wasn't too surprised when I heard the girls laughing in their room just five minutes after my alarm went off! It was still dark out & I tried to convince them to go back to sleep. They were pretty quiet after that, but, I knew they were wide awake & wouldn't fall back to sleep.

So, I prepared them a fun, special little snack let them eat while watching Tangled in the family room. Eating in the family room AND a movie - a very special treat!



While the girls watched the movie I baked up a batch of chocolate chocolate chip & mint cookies & also made some black bean mango salsa to take to our play date. (I was so bad & ended up eating about five cookies today!!!)

I just love doing special things for the kids like that, sometimes I think it makes me happier than it makes them! Does anyone else feel the same way?

snack for dinner is a HUGE hit at our house. double hit if we get to watch tv while we are eating it.

of course, its not a complete snack for dinner experience until something gets spilled.
