Backpacks are packed, pencils are sharpened, and school has officially started! Regardless, I still can’t wrap my mind around the fact that our summer break is over (or that Ellie has started school - ah!) It’s still been quite warm around here and pulling out the baby pool in the backyard is still a weekly occurrence. Summer stay a little longer, please!?
On a particularly warm day, Ellie and I were in need of a cool, sweet treat. It was “witching hour,” otherwise known as the hour before dad gets home and one particular toddler gets a little cranky! To cure the crankiness, and keep me from going insane, Ellie and I pulled out the blender and got to work. Five ingredients later and we had ourselves a delicious pineapple whip to enjoy on the front porch while we waited for dad to get home. Talk about turning our afternoon around! If I closed my eyes, I could almost picture myself on a beach in Hawaii…almost. ;)
