Afternoon with Grandma & Grandpa

We went up to visit Great Grandma & Grandpa, Grandma Mary & Papa Dave. The kids got to have a piano recital and recite their poetry. They had a pretty competitive game of Pretty, Pretty, Princess. Grandpa looked great in a crown. 9.21.11

Riverfest 2011

Our first home in Kansas City was an apartment in Riverside. Every year we go back in the fall for their big festival: Riverfest. They always have a great parade and a wonderful festival with lots of free activities for kids. This year they had a giant velcro wall and a harness trampoline. Nothing funnier than watching our kids throw them selves at a wall and stick! Pretty cute 9.17.11

Time to make the Donuts

My Grandma makes the most amazing donuts. I however have never even tried to make them on my own. The only time my kids have had homemade donuts was when we made them with Great Grandma. This summer we finally worked together to make some super yummy treats. We made strawberry, lemon, anise and vanilla flavored donuts. The kids had a great time glazing them and of course eating them! We had just listened to the book Homer Price and the Donuts so it added to the fun. 9.4.11
