It's not a celebration without yummy food!
The perfect summer lunch :)
I discovered a super easy way to make a layered drink, and you can do it with any color combo you want (of course we went with red, white & blue). The secret is in the sugar content of each beverage! Start with the drink with the most sugar and top it off with the least amount of sugar. In order for it to work you'll need to fill the glass with ice first, and then pour directly on the ice so the layers don't blend. We started with cranberry juice (the most sugar) then added blue Gatorade (still had sugar, but not a lot) and finished it off with diet sprite (no sugar)! The kids were impressed...and it tasted good!It was so nice that Aaron didn't have to work and we could just spend the day goofing off...
...and this is what "goofing off" looks like:
When referring to these two we just say "the littles". They're the sweetest little littles ever!Aaron and the kids played frisby in the parking lot...we're all about safety!
One of the highlights of the 4th was wrapping up Violet's potty-training-boot-camp, as we call it! We did it in three days!
I may have bribed her with candy..., and a cell phone...
...and gave in to her every request (no matter how silly or gross)... like a blankey for her lap...
BUT she's potty trained and I couldn't be happier :)
