Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣
⁣
Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣
⁣
Have you ever taken your kids fishing? What ways are you incorporating outdoor time into your schedule? ⁣

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

Iyla has a huge heart. This year, she is donating half of her birthday money to @cancerfreekids. She is going to change the world. I know it. ⁣

And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

Since today is National Chocolate Chip Day, I asked my 10 year old what her all-time favorite chocolate chip dessert is. I wasn't at all surprised when she told me it was cannolis, because they are also my fave. But although I love to bake and I'm always up for a challenge, the idea of making my own cannoli shells scares me, mainly because I have the hardest time rolling out dough evenly. Anyone else have that problem? Any tips?⁣ Anyhoo, since she knows I'm not going to be making actual cannolis anytime soon, Iyla had the brilliant idea to make cannoli cupcakes instead. Genius! I am much more confident in my cupcake making abilities. So cannoli cupcakes it was! ⁣
⁣
Cinnamon and chocolate chip cupcakes with a mascarpone frosting, topped with mini chocolate chips and a cannoli chip. They turned out amazing and today I’m sharing the recipe on the blog. Just click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories. ⁣

Top 10 April Fool’s Cell Phone Pranks

If You Love It, Share It!

Let me start by saying, I have never been a fan of April Fool’s Day. It’s a day I usually spend in my home, not answering the phone and not subjecting myself to any situation where I might get fooled. Why? I have no idea. I guess, like most people, I just don’t like people laughing at me for any reason. So when I became a Mom, I promised myself that I would never purposely try to fool my kids.

And I kept that promise… for about the first 10 years or so. But then my oldest came home from school on April Fool’s Day and was telling me all of the ways that her friend’s parents had fooled them. I thought I was being a good Mom, but she thought she was being left out. So, the following year, I cut a bunch of E’s out of brown construction paper, dropped them in a baking pan and covered it with aluminum foil. When she got home from school, I told her and her younger sister that there was a pan of brownies waiting on the counter for them (brown E’s… get it?). They ran in, ripped the foil off and yelled.. “MOOOOMMM!” I’ll never forget the laughter that followed. They couldn’t wait to go to school the next day and tell their friends. It was the day I changed my mind about April Fool’s Day.

This year, since most of our day-to-day lives revolve around our cell phones, I thought it would be fun to share 10 ways you can prank your loved ones, just by borrowing their cell phone for a few minutes.

Top 10 April Fool’s Cell Phone Pranks

  1. Change Contact Names – change some of their contact names to random things like Spiderman, This Guy, Little Miss Sunshine, Uh Oh.. Not Him Again, April Fool’s
  2. Set Alarms… Lots of Alarms – set alarms every few minutes, for hours. That should be fun!
  3. Change the Language – Go into settings and change it to another language.
  4. Change the Fingerprint – if you have an iPhone, you can add your own finger print and delete theirs. They won’t be able to access their phone with their print (only with their pass code)
  5. Change the Wallpaper – Change it to something that’s sure to make them giggle. A goat wearing a dress perhaps?
  6. Add a Text Replacement – Choose a word they probably use often in text or emails like “the” and add a keyboard text replacement to something funny “April Fool’s”… so when they text “I’ll be at the house soon”, it will change to “I’ll be at April Fool’s house soon.” Get creative! The possibilities are endless.
  7. Change their Ringtone – Pick a song they are most likely to dislike and make it their ringtone.
  8. Add Your Birthday to Their Calendar (feel free to make your birthday every day, for the next couple of weeks) – Add a special note like “make sure to buy ____ an awesome gift”
  9. Selfie Bomb – Take as many selfies as you can.
  10. Crack & Break It – Download this app, take a screenshot of their main screen, add a break and leave that image on their phone. When they open their phone, they’ll think their screen is shattered.

Which one will you try?

10 best April Fool's Cell Phone Pranks to play on your friends and family.

    • Heather
      April 2, 2019

  • Natalie
    April 1, 2019

    Too funny! I love the selfie bomb one. I didn’t do anything this year, I guess you could say I was lacking inspiration!

  • Joanna
    April 1, 2019

    I used to change the wallpaper of my friend’s computers all the time, not just for April fools day. I used to search for the funnies animal pictures, like goats or giraffes and then laugh when they would turn their machines on and burst into tears of laughter.

    • Heather
      April 1, 2019

      Sounds like a fun place to work!

  • Amber Myers
    April 1, 2019

    How fun! I am tempted to try some of these. But we’re a lazy family and rarely do anything for April Fools. I nearly forgot it even was April Fools until the news reminded me.

  • Danielle Wolter
    April 1, 2019

    I haven’t even thought about it being april fool’s day today. we don’t really participate but I used to love it when i was younger!

  • Stacie
    April 1, 2019

    I love these. Great minds think alike, as they say. This morning, all three of my kids were awaked about 30 minutes early to alarms that went off every minute. It was FANTASTIC.

    • Heather
      April 1, 2019

      Please tell me you got that on video?

  • Melanie
    April 1, 2019

    This is the first year that my boys have understood April Fool’s Day. I feel sorry for their teacher today! Haha!

      April 1, 2019

      Do they have anything fun planned?

  • Karen
    April 1, 2019

    Oh my gosh! Some of these are excellent and harmless pranks! I don’t mind a good April Fools joke, as long as there’s nobody being physically or mentally harmed. I love the idea of setting excessive alarms, especially if they’re in school or work. Cruel? Yes! Perfect? Absolutely!

  • Jeanette
    April 1, 2019

    I cannot believe it is April already. This is going way too fast. I like the idea of these pranks. It would be fun to do.

  • candy
