a few vacation pics...

I am a little late with these, but over the 4th we went to Disney.  We did all of the parks and had a blast.  Jack loved all the rides and the fireworks were amazing.  I think Jack's favorite part was the Art of Animation hotel.  All of the rooms were Cars themed and I loved it there!  I just wanted to post a few pics of Jack for you all.  I hope you are enjoying your Summer, it is flying by!

S'more campfire needed

I posted this last year, and just had to post this again, they are a hit at home, easy for Jack to help me make, and no campfire (or mosquitos!) required.  

Have a great weekend!

Summer S'more Squares
Yields 24

12 graham cracker sheets

12 large marshmallows
24 Hershey's Kisses


Break graham cracker sheets in half. Using a knife (or clean scissors) cut each marshmallow into 2 halves. Heat oven to Low Broil and place oven rack two levels below broiler. Align graham crackers in the center of a cookie sheet about 1/2" apart from each other (be sure they are near the center so they are directly under the broiler and cook more evenly at the same time). Top each graham cracker with a marshmallow with the cut/sticky side down. Place marshmallow topped graham crackers under broiler (turn oven light on if you have one). KEEP WATCHING! Watch them closely as they will toast quickly, allow to toast until golden rotating pan with oven mitt as needed. (I burnt a batch becuase I wasn't watching, so be careful!). Once golden immediately remove from oven, place 1 Kiss in the center of each toasted marshmallow and gently press down. For best results serve warm, just like a real S'more.
*You will probably have to broil two pans, as only about 12 crackers fit on a pan.

Moms Meet Jamba Juice Review

 Jack and I love smoothies.  So you can imagine how excited we all were to be chosen to try out the new fruit and veggie smoothies at Jamba Juice.  I ordered the Tropical Harvest Smoothie and Jack the Berry Beet It! Kids Smoothie.

I was a little worried that Jack would not like the fruit and veggie smoothie; I thought for sure he would taste the veggies. I took a taste and thought it was really good.... the berries tasted great, and I couldn't even tell there was spinach, kale, or broccoli in it.  

The Tropical Harvest smoothie was also WAY better than I thought it would be, it may be one of my new favs.. The flavor from the squash and sweet potatoes was a nice complement to balance out the sweetness of the mangoes. Over all, we really liked both flavors and will definitely be trying them again. The Apple 'n Greens smoothie is next on my list.

Jamba Juice smoothies have also really helped out with my morning sickness during this pregnancy.  They soothed my stomach and gave me the nutrients I need for my day 
Here is more information about the two smoothies we got to try' give them a try for your little ones and I'm sure they will be a hit!
