Splash Pad

There is an awesome splash pad not far from here that I had been hearing about. Everyone I knew that went to it raved about it and said how much fun they had there with their kids. The kids L-O-V-E water. We do a sprinkler in the backyard on a regular basis. I was itching to get them to the splash pad. I had planned to meet a friend and her kids on Friday there, but the weather had other plans. I ended up taking my 3 to the mall to play in their play area for a while. Sunday the sun was shining and it was a great day. Diva had been asking to go to the splash pad so we loaded up and headed that way. The place was fantastic. I was impressed. Diva ran around in the water for a little bit and then her and a girl she met there went and played on the play set adjacent to the splash pad the rest of the time. Carter took immediately to the water. He was one very happy little boy. He ran around full speed the entire time. It took Owen a little bit to warm up to the idea. The first 30-45 minutes he was having nothing to do with the water. He wanted to go slide. He eventually warmed up and had the time of his life playing in the water. The best part about the splash pad? Nap time was AWESOME Sunday afternoon.

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs.
Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven.
Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine! She came over today to make some pasta. While she…

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...
