We had my 9 year olds birthday party with his friends yesterday. Nothing like letting 8 third grade boys loose in an ice cream shop. They had such a great time. They were able to make homemade ice cream, sample a few different kinds, decorate t-shirts, and have a special ice cream cake. At least the party ended at 5:00, so the sugar high had time to wear off before bed time. Eating an actual dinner, now that I can not make any promises on. If you live near a Ben & Jerry’s, I definitely suggest you check it out. Something different and fun for the kids to do. Plus, you don’t have to worry about them running crazy around your house!
I am guest posting today over at Life on Food. It is Emily’s birthday week, and she is featuring a full week of “cakes”! As you can see I didn’t make your traditional birthday cake. But I think you will forgive me. I mean look at it.
Brownie Batter flavored pancakes (that part is actually healthy for you), then I mixed in egg free cookie dough. The cookie dough gets ooey gooey when the pancakes cook. It is amazing! So trust me when I say, you HAVE to go check these out, and get the recipe from Emily. Wish her a Happy Birthday while you are there.
