I Made Bread!!!!

Okay so I know this may not be a big deal to some people, but I have never made bread before. I have always wanted to but never thought I could get it to work. So I bought all of my ingredients and was a little troubled by how to incorporate the rapid-rise yeast I bought in to my dry yeast recipe. I was so worried I was going to mess it up. But I did it!!!!!!!!!!! Here are some pictures below - I know the tops are not nice and smooth but hey I can work on that next time. It was really yummy!!!

Father's Day Breakfast!!

Last monday - the 3rd, was Father's Day breakfast at Aidan's school. Since school isn't in session when it is Father's Day they have a special breakfast for the dads. Jared had a great time and Aidan was so excited to have his daddy at school. Jared said that Aidan kept saying, 'Daddy this is the best day ever!!!' The kids sang a few songs and then they ate breakfast. Aidan actually participated this time - not like at Christmas when he refused to be in the program. We were very proud of him.
So I thought I would share a couple of pictures.

Aidan is in the middle

Also - Eli is officially walking now - everywhere. He started this on March 6th. We have a video of him, but Jared is currently trying to downsize it so that I can post it on the blog.
Well I need to get going - Eli is stinky - my cell phone is not entertaining him anymore (he figured out how to turn it on too) - he is pulling all of the paper out of my shredder (pain to clean up) and Adley is screaming at me to help him with his Star Wars game. I can't wait to see what the rest of the day is going to be like. Wish me luck!!!
