We gathered at a local park on Saturday, to celebrate the birthday of two special little guys.
Picnics are casual events with our family, especially when dealing with the wind.
Menu; Mac and Cheese, sauteed chicken, apple sauce, and cole slaw.
So, watermelon it was, in skewer fashion, along with a fruit dip that I discovered on the "Iowa Girl Eats" blog. It is so simple and was a big hit. Here is the recipe that she has labeled as "the best fruit dip EVER." Try it and see if you agree;
7 oz. Marshmallow Creme
8 oz. low-fat or whipped cream cheese softened to room tempeture
2 Tablespoons of frozen orange juice concentrate
Spoon marshmellow creme into a large microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 20 seconds. Whisk in softened creme cheese and orange juice concentrate until very smooth. Chill, then serve with fruit.
Obviously, she was wrong. Isn't that so often how it is with children? They say one thing and then turn around and prove you wrong. Looks to me like maybe next year we will do watermelon and cake again:)
At dusk, on a cool, windy Fall evening, this was the perfect place to celebrate together.
We can't believe they are three years old already.
What joy and fun they add to all of our lives.
Their new flashlights were a hit. In fact, they carried them with them all evening.
Our daughter captured just one of the beautiful scenes of the evening. We all look forward to a return visit to this park.
We want to wish our daughter a "Happy Birthday" today on her twenty fifth birthday!
We love you and wish we could celebrate the day with you.
