Made this recipe this week. The kids love it.

Tuesday the kids were so tired from their busy day Monday putting in the garden ect. It was a busy day so I let them sleep in.

Wednesday Andrew had to do hid preschool test, which he passed. Here we come Kindergarten. Andrew and Alex both had dentist appointments later in the day. While in Grand Falls we also took a plant, donuts and a card to the RCMP officers letting them know we were thinking of them on June 4 the 1st Anniversary of the death of their fallen comrades and to thank them for what they do each day..

Thursday the two older boys went on their last school outing for the year. Alyson went with her little cousin to town so that left me Andrew. I ended up keeping three of my nieces and nephews for the afternoon. The kids had fun. I finished painting the back porch. Here is another picture of the work in progress.


Friday some cousins came over again later in the day to play. Later in the evening we gave the boys and my husband their monthly haircuts. It saves so much by being able to do it ourselves.

Saturday there was a bike rodeo in town which the kids all did. After there was a clown making free balloon shapes. They were so cute. Andrew got a sword. Aaron got a red parrot on a perch. Alyson got a monkey in a palm tree. Alex got a green pistol.
