We had a fairly calm day. We stayed at home, mostly indoors due to the weather. We watched whatever movies Isaac wanted to watch (The Fantastic Four - twice), I still only allowed him two 30 min. sessions of computer time, we did school (we're sprouting beans & peas - question: Will "split peas" actually sprout anything?), we continued on with Chapter 3 of The Magician's Nephew, we took lots of baths ~ LONG baths, ate Mac-n-Cheese w/ cut up hotdogs mixed in (yum) oh, and POP (bad momma)
and actually found a cake recipe that I could make. With my *very* limited cake-making pantry items.
That was fun. I found a Buttermilk Cake with Carmel Icing - it was a bunt cake (or is it bundt?). Isaac was very excited when he saw the picture next to the recipe - "I get a cake with a HOLE in it?? Cool!". Yes, son, very cool.
We celebrated with some party favors I have leftover from......I don't know when. What was I *thinking*?? Yikes, three young kids with noise makers. In a duplex. A small duplex.
We are officially celebrating Isaac's birthday with our first trip to the Detroit Zoo on Friday ~ cool. How excited am I? I honestly believe I enjoy Zoo trips more than any of the kids. Isaac will be focusing on elephants over the next few days, as those are his favorite zoo animals. He will be taking pictures on his own of the elephants (I might snap a few, just in case) and hopefully we will come up with our very first Elephant Notebook Page(s). Yeah!!
Ok, it's about to storm - our very first one since we have lived in this apartment.
Let's see how this goes.
