Lots of fun pictures to share from April!
First we had Caleb’s birthday, for which we had a little dinner with friends and I made this Butterfingers Ice Cream Cake. That was my first time making an ice cream cake, and I’ll admit I was kind of thinking, “this seems like a lot of work when we could just eat ice cream” but I must say it was very good. It’s a graham cracker crust, vanilla ice cream with crushed Butterfingers, more crushed Butterfingers, and whipped cream frosting. The recipe called for one layer of plain vanilla ice cream, but the quantities given in the recipe did not match up at all with the 9″ Springform pan I used (in case you want to give it a try yourself).
Then we have a few pictures and a video from Easter, always one of my favorite holidays, and a couple other random pictures.
Enjoy! Hope you all are enjoying your April, and maybe some warmer weather?
Presents at breakfast
Cody couldn’t wait to use this mower, a hand-me-down from a neighbor, the first time Daddy mowed. I grabbed my camera and snapped this picture without checking the settings, and it was completely overexposed, and they never lined up so nicely again. So it looks a little weird but I still thought it was cute.
First time dying eggs for Cody! It was over too quickly!!
He really did pretty well taking the eggs in and out of the dye, for a two year old.
Front yard egg hunt after church! (Not sure how many years I’ll be able to get him to wear those ears, so enjoying it while it lasts!)
Counting the eggs
Here’s what we got when I asked for a smile, ha ha! We thought it was an appropriate expression for a little rabbit.
Here’s the smile Daddy coaxed out.
Our friends who made it in time for our adult egg hunt! Another couple joined us for dinner later.
Best shot I could grab of the table!
Last week, we were going to go camping, so we set up the tent for some practice, apprehensive of how Cody would do. He actually slept pretty well! But then we had to cancel the trip due to weather. Hoping to give it a try in May.
