I guess it's been a busy summer because I haven't been able to post here nearly as much as I'd like. I have all these ideas swirling around in my head- things I'd love to write about and activities I'd love to do with my boys, but I just never get a chance to sit down and blog during the day. Ever. By the time the boys are in bed I'm just beat. I'm hoping with the arrival of our new dishwasher on Tuesday the dirty dish monster will finally be tackled.

Dill Pickles is still very interested in reading dinosaur books. We just got a new batch last week at the library. One favorite right now is Edwina, The Dinosaur who Didn't Know She Was Extinct by Mo Willems. Edwina loves to bake chocolate chip cookies for everyone in town. Dill Pickles has been dying to make chocolate chip cookies and drink monkey milk (rice milk) just like Edwina and Reginald Van Hoobie Doobie on the very last page of the book. The other day Dill spotted a box of blueberry Jiffy Muffin Mix in the cabinet and insisted they were chocolate chip cookies and we just HAD to bake them. Sure sweetie, I'd love to turn on the oven when it's 87 degrees outside.

Dill Pickles says, "Stir, stir, stir."

Sweet Pickles wants a turn too!

The cookies are ready for the oven

We colored while we were waiting for the cookies.

It was so hard to wait for them to cool.

Sweet Pickles couldn't wait for the cookies, so he chomped on his crayon. Chocolate chip cookies and monkey milk just like Edwina. Yummy!
