quality time with Ky

Every few weeks, hubby and Jules head out to play mini-putt. This year, the place they go had a "season" pass for $20.00 - so we bought 2 of them. It costs them just under $20.00 for 2 rounds, so this way, if they went twice then the passes would start to be worth the money.

This is the 3rd time they have gone and used the passes, so now they are "free" mini-putt days to them! However, Kyle now realizes when Julien goes out - and he gets quite upset.  He had just gotten up from his nap when they were leaving, and the big crocodile tears started.

We went to the window to wave good bye, and then I told him we could make blueberry muffins.  This is the first time I have actually baked with Kyle. He is often with me, sitting in the booster seat and 'helping" but today I actually let him REALLY help me. He sat on the counter, and he got to pour the ingredients into the bowl.






 He was able to use the electric beaters (with my guidance) and he even helped me spoon some of the muffin mix into the holders.

When we were finished, we tasted our hard work and then played trains for awhile!

  1. SO FUN I bet he was ear to ear smiling! I find with 4 wee ones (6 & under ) it's easy to get carried away with the day to spend real ONE on ONE time, but it means the world and it SO important!!! WAY TO GO MAMA!

  5. Super cute sounds like you guys had a ball! The kids and I bake together a lot and when we do it together it's so much more fun. We haven't baked in a few weeks because of the heat, but I'm looking forward to it again!

  6. My kids love to be in the kitchen. I get a little nervous though as I am not comfortable in there (I suck at cooking). Looks like you guys had fun!

  10. Need to add "bake muffins" to my list of easy things to do to keep the kids busy (and my belly round, oops on that one). We make pancakes every Sunday morning.
