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 (pronounced eye-la) loves coding, Pokemon, talking to her friends, learning new languages (currently Hebrew and French) and hanging out with her sisters. ⁣

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. ⁣

Today is actually “Dance Like a Chicken Day”. I had plans to dress Super Dad in a chicken costume and make him dance, but spending $50 on a chicken costume didn’t seem like the smartest financial decision, considering the circumstances. ⁣

An Innovative Children’s Book That Stars Your Girl as a Tech Hero

If You Love It, Share It!

Our girls LOVE to read.  We actually had to build a floor to ceiling shelf for them to hold all of their books and they still don’t fit!  It’s a collection that we don’t mind them having and are more than happy to help them to grow both their stacks of books and their love of learning.  I have always loved reading myself and while I didn’t have hundreds of books like my daughters do, there are a few that I still remember loving, even though it was SOOO long ago.  One of those was a personalized book.  It had my name and my friend’s names and was custom made especially for me.  It made me feel so special and it’s a feeling I’ll always remember.

When I was contacted by Your Secret Code, I was over the moon!  I knew that Falynn was going to go crazy when she saw that she had a book with her name in it (and boy was I right!).  When the book arrived, it was so much more than I imagined.  The illustrations are absolutely amazing and the story was awesome! Your Secret Code is about a little girl who loves coding and building robots and is always making messes. She decides to build a robot to do her chores for her. But when she arms it with artificial intelligence, things quickly go out of control – until she saves the day. We barely got it out of the package before she was begging us to read it to her.  And once we were done, she was begging us to read it again.

I’d have to say that her favorite part of the book was the part that shows her Daddy talking about her messy room.  She looked at me, looked at her Daddy and was shocked.  I think it was at that moment that she realized this book really was about her since Daddy is ALWAYS telling her to clean up.  That was a detail I didn’t even have to share when we ordered the book.  I guess she’s not alone in the mess department!

Your Secret Code is an innovative children’s book that stars your girl as a tech hero.  As a mother of 3 girls, I don’t think there is anything more important than teaching them that they can do anything that they put their mind to!   According to their website, studies show that children begin to associate jobs to genders between ages 5 and 7, and they base their aspirations on what they are exposed to.  Stereotypes come from everywhere and children’s stories are full of them. Girls, especially female minorities, need more sources of inspiration in order to break down stereotypes. This isn’t just a story about technology. It’s about bravery, problem-solving and leadership: values that are ubiquitous to any fulfilling future. Expose your children to positive role models who will inspire them to become the leaders of their lives.  A strong message wrapped up in a beautiful, personalized book.  It’s the perfect gift for any little girl!

Now that you know all about it, let me share with you how it works.  You personalize your girl’s name, skin color and hair style, and receive a beautiful hard cover picture book in 2 weeks.
