Tent Rocks Hike

This picture was taken after the hike, OK, so I didn't look much better before the hike, but still it was after.
Cole traveling in style.







We went with a some friends so only some of these children are ours. Sarah is in blue, Ethan in yellow and green and Josh is behind him in the white.

The kids thought this tree was so cool because they could crawl under it.

Dinners

For the last month I've been trying one new recipe every week. Some dinners have been better than others. There was Cauliflower soup, Squash Risotto, Chicken Salad Sandwich, and Apple Glaze Chicken. I'd like to thank Pampered Chef for the Apple Glazed Chicken, it was super good and the only one that we liked and the kids have been begging me to make it again. The kids know how hard I work on the new dinners and they also know that they are allowed to have an opinion but still need to be nice about it. These are some of the comments I've gotten lately.
"I like it mom, but just don't make it again."

"At least you know you tried your best."

"It's good, I don't want seconds, but I think I can finish my firsts"

"It's was a little bit disgusting, but good."

And the ever famous, "What are the green things?"

Gardens

I spent a couple of hours today planting a small garden with the kids. We have a bell pepper plant, 25 onions, strawberries and a raspberry plant. A couple hours later Ethan runs into the house with two of the baby onion bulbs and says, "Look mom, there done!"

Just for Heather
