My blog has been a bit sporadic lately but I have a good excuse.
IT'S SPRING BREAK!!
I LOVE spring break.
The weather is always fabulous and we have a whole week to get out and celebrate it before it gets hot and miserable.
I try to plan lots of fun activities and outdoor time. This year I had to scrap a few of the hikes I had planned to rest my knee. There is still fun to be had out there
I'm not sure how much blogging I will get in this week but I will try to fill ya in on all the fun.
Here is what we have been up to so far.
Picnics in the park.
Wildflower's chopped salad is sooo good. I crave it.
Watching little imaginations grow, might be one of my favorite past times. He was giddy, like when I see cupcakes, giddy.
We have to get dirty and wet if the day is gonna be a success.
When you live in AZ you live for Spring Training games. We start them young. I don't know to many 2yr olds that can make it through a whole game but he can. He loves it.
Ponytail? Check. Pink shirt? Check. Pink glove? Check! Ready for the ball? Um, pass the cotton candy please.
Thank you. I trust a bucket with the words Tubby's cotton candy on it.
Spring training games are tough but the more you do it the better ya get. If you take kids, four to be exact, sitting in the outfield grass is the ticket.
The kiddies can rest.
They can roll down the grassy hill.
And the parents can watch
As long as you remember to use sun screen.
Free SPF 30!
If only cotton candy was free, now that would be the bomb diggity.
The proximity of Sweet Republic to the baseball fields is all too convenient. This place is Aaaamazing! Go there soon. Tell them the girl who licked the glass says Hi.
Tyler and Cambrie got the Campfire S'more sundae. Yeah, that's a toasted homemade marshmallow on top. Everything they make is homemade. This made some big smiles.
I tried the Salted Butter Caramel (tears weld up in my eyes and I proposed, no joke, Bradon got a cup of this, thas my boy), Real Mint, the Lavender (tasted like flowers, good, but only for one bite), the Honey Blue cheese (very interesting, and only one bite was enough for me), and the Guinness chocolate. They were all very good. But.....
When I walked in the door and I saw this. I knew I had to have it. The Toffee Banofi was featured on Food Network's "The Best Thing I Ever I Ate". I guess this is Alton Browns best thing. Annnnd now, it's mine. Seriously good. Their salted caramel sauce is everything it needs to be and more.
The homemade toffee buttercrunch is just showing off.
I hope when I go back tomorrow for breakfast they will show off some more for me.
Or scoop me a bowl of Maple Bacon ice cream.
