THIS week is Spring Break. YAY! Ok kinda not so much. Last week I was kinda lamenting about Spring Break. I love the idea of not getting up and having to get Emma ready for school and then load 4 kids into a van to drive Emma to school. BUT I also know that when there is suddenly no school there is an up swing in boredom, whining, and fighting among the shorter people of my household. So I planed a preemptive strike.
Here is the plan.
Monday: Ogden Eccels Dinosaur Park. To add to the fun we invited anyone who wanted to join us. About 16 friends took us up on the offer.
Tuesday: Sweets Candy Factory Tour. I have heard good things about this tour and it is FREE. If you live close you should check it out. If you don't you should google candy factory tours in your area. They are usually free. Just be sure to check that it is not one of those tours where you just watch a video or something, and usually you need to schedule your visit in advance.
Wednesday: Hogle Zoo We Love the zoo. We have a zoo pass and we always put it to good use.
Thursday: Group Playdate at a local park.
Friday: Big party at our place. The kids are going to run around, watch a movie, and play wii; while the mommies have a little Pampered Chef Brunch Party. I haven't ever hosted a Pampered Chef party so wish me luck.
Sounds fun right?
Okay. Now to THAT.
That is that Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies recipe that has been going around the bloggy world. I made them on Sunday Afternoon, using this recipe, and took them over to my in-laws for desert after General Conference Dinner. They were a hit and may I recommend serving them warm with ice cream and under baking them a little.
These cookies are BIG. Think like the size of 3 cookies, because basically that is what they are.
I had made about 2 dozen cookies on Sunday afternoon and this morning only this one remained.
But not for long.....
