Happy 4th of July!


I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe Independence Day!  After a very busy week we are enjoying a lot of family time this weekend.  We had a wonderful, though slightly wet, morning at our local parade.  E is very into any type of vehicle lately, the bigger the better, so he was in heaven watching dozens of fire trucks drive by him.

E was also pretty thrilled by the toothbrush a local dentist was handing out.  The excitement of the toothbrush was more than enough to distract him from the candy that was being distributed by other groups 🙂

We are home now and preparing to host a small picnic for our family tomorrow.  The ENTIRE menu will be safe for E: hotdogs and hamburgers on homemade (safe) buns, corn on the cob, tomato salad, and cupcakes for dessert. The preparations are underway and I am super-excited!  Hopefully the recipes will be winners and I’ll share some next week.  Here’s a sneak peek of the in-progress goodies:

We are very optimistic about our new cupcake recipe. 

What are your holiday plans? Are you attempting any new recipes?

Have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
