New Foods, Forts and Fun

I've been trying to shop healthier and cook healthier for our family. Last night I made Ratatouille...

We watched it and ate it at the same time!
(Neither the kids or Philip were big fans but I LOVED the dish!)

Last night (after skipping her afternoon nap), Moriah put herself to bed at 5:30! Philip was still at work, so Keenan and I had some fun time together making a blanket fort.

Here are the kids in the fort this morning with Spunky =)

I LOVE this picture! Caleb's expression is priceless and
he's almost as big as she is!

Big smiles!

Quinoa (keen-wa) is a new favorite of mine.

I made salad at lunch time...

... and cheesy quinoa to go with dinner

We have deck furniture but it's not set up yet, so the kids and I had a "picnic style" dinner on the deck

My sweet boy in the Bumbo (look at those toes!)

Sweet smile =)

Nice to know that I'm not the only one who has trouble convincing her family that new food dishes are good! Our kids don't like ratatouille either!

Yum... I would like it!! Dad probably wouldn't!

Caleb is a doll baby!! I'll have to send some transferable squeezes with Mark and Rebekah when they go!!
