Wordless Wednesday

The kids each got a coupon for being great helpers, Elise's was to make a special snack using any ingredients she wanted and a parent of her choice had to take at least 3 bites of it.
Elise picked for Ty to eat it, notice the banana garnish on the bowl.

Elise loves taking her puppy with her and puts her in her shirt to carry her along quite frequently.

First walk to the ice cream truck this season.

We ended up with a bunch of cream cheese so I asked Ty to make cheese danishes. He was so sweet and made these even though it was such a long process he was up past bedtime. They were so good!
Ty put Elise's stroller in time out months ago because she hit Carter with it. He forgot about it and saw it up on the shelf and finally got it back down. She's been playing with it every day since.
The kids reading to their stuffed animal students at a school they set up.
