I hope this finds you healthy and comfortable. We are finally almost back to normal after having some sort of cold go through the family.
I have John Luke signed up for a “preschool club” at Publix, and they send him something in the mail every month. In March, it was a chef hat to go with the apron they’d sent previously. John Luke LOVES this set!
For April 1, I decided to do something fun for a change and we did dinner a little differently. For the main meal, we had cupcakes (meatloaf with colored mashed potato “frosting”) followed by dessert of “cashew chicken” (dried apples and pineapples, cashews, “green beans” made of fruit roll-ups wrapped around sunflower seeds, and “peppers” made of strips of fruit roll-ups in red and yellow).
We took one evening and went up to the battlegrounds in Fort Oglethorpe, GA, where they have a tower that has about 150 steps to the top (I’m not sure of the exact number) and we walked up. It was fun, if a bit tiring! We had to get a picture at the top, of course! (I was taking the picture, you know.) We went around to several locations for photos after that.
I love the little sweet interactions I get to see with my children— especially with the littlest ones. I captured this picture one evening while they were watching a video.
The same weekend was the annual Ladies’ meeting to which I look forward every year. They always decorate things beautifully and have a lot of good information for helping us as wives and mothers to best serve our families and, more importantly, God.
A few days ago, I decided it was time to try to make a pineapple upside-down cake. I’d never made one, and the only one I had ever eaten was when I was a young teen (and I wasn’t impressed at that time). I got a recipe from the internet and here was the result:
It turned out absolutely delicious, and I will definitely be making it again sometime—maybe with a different fruit.
We went bowling as a belated celebration of Bobby’s birthday, and it was a lot of fun! We’re far from professionals, but that didn’t matter. I love this picture I caught of Bobby & Sarah when it was almost time to go home.
We’re hoping to go bowling more often, since our local alley has a special night when it’s only $1 per game and $1 for shoes— that makes it a lot more affordable for our family.
I hope you’ve been able to enjoy the spring weather like we’ve been having here! It’s been sunny and warm during the day and cooler at night— just perfect, in my opinion!
Until next time!
