No Fires Here

Here are a whole bunch of photos taken at a friend's super fun birthday at the local fire department. Ben loved pretending to drive the ladder truck!

Recipe for Haycorn Soup

Ben has been collecting acorns in our neighborhood, usually to throw in the river, and he's been reading some classic Winnie the Pooh stories. That's how I came up with the idea of Haycorn Soup, and Ben assisted me in writing the recipe. Here it is.

I would suggest an ingredient, and Ben would tell me how many. Then he helped me with the directions. FYI, we did not yell when we pretended to eat it.

Here's Ben collecting acorns.

Here is Ben in the wooded area by our house inspecting the crabapples. They were the only challenge, as they were too high up, so I had to precariously perch on the kitchen stepstool and yank on the branches.

Whew! Back from woods shopping.

Here's Ben mixing it up on the back porch.

Bon Appetit!
