Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: The Bright Side


The Bright Side

A new and better way to pop bubble wrap:

Cafe Chocolate at the Red Beet with a good friend:

Gluten Free Goodies at the Red Beet

While I'm not GF I happily ate gluten free waffles and didn't even know it. Enough friends and their kids are GF that I'm happy to hear ALL the baked goods at the Red Beet are now GF. They have one bread made and baked in a separate area that is not gluten free, so you do have a choice.

Somethings never change: age 7

Recycled Milk Carton Boats and a proud boy...Thanks Family Fun Magazine for the inspiration, we had so much fun creating this together. It also sparked imagination in our 7 year old who created a milk carton "Constitution" complete with 40 straw cannons per side

Teaching our boys the art of world domination one roll at a time!

Lovable stinky yellow labs

See? I have so many things to cheer me up, how can I possibly stay blue for long?

Peace and Love--

  7. My kids are crazy about popping bubble wrap. I have been saving a lot of lately, because I am in the process of setting up my etsy shop. And the bubble wrap is going to be useless because they keep popping it.

    Lovely pictures of the handsome children. I also really like the picture of the Red Beet.
