We’ve had a fun and fortunate summer .. fortunate in that many of our friends have invited us to peaceful retreats to the country. And it couldn’t come at a better time since there’s constant noise and smells (and today crazy heat!) coming from the busy street below our city apartment! Etta and Audrey had us out to their grandparents’ house where the kids could run through grass, play on swings and fish at the VERY local pond. Ezra and Zoe couldn’t get enough of their plants and the garden, where Ezra invented ‘chocolate mint sandwiches’ (basically the leaves from the chocolate-mint plant folded into a triangle and eaten right there by the garden.) Audrey loves to wear her bunny ears and hop around – heck I love the ears too. And of course there was a session of s’more making at night – how could we go without one?

Brad got an ice cream maker for Christmas and was generous enough to share it with all of us. Since the snow was really coming down for the days following Christmas, we were even able to fill the ball with fresh snow instead of ice cubes! Just load it with cream, crushed mint/chocolate bark (snow and salt in the outside chamber)and then set the kids to kicking it around for 15 minutes. Stir it up a bit and then roll it around for another 15 minutes and voila! We had mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert.
