camping in

Read about Avery and Nate's camping adventures and the indoor version of a beloved campfire snack over at Honest to Nod today!  Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending us this pup tent.


ice cream days

Although fall and the beginning of the school year are right around the corner, it's still pretty much ice cream weather around here.  Avery loves this Duplo ice cream set--it comes with different ice cream flavors, toppings, cones and even a "popsicle stick."  And best of all, there's no sticky mess to clean up when she's done putting together her icy creation.


hello kitty play date

We had a Hello Kitty play date recently including a simple lunch of Hello Kitty cheesy bread and some munchables, Hello Kitty cupcakes and setting up a Hello Kitty store!

a summertime tradition

This little detail is part of my latest post for The Land of Nod.  If you're curious, check it out at Honest to Nod!  Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending us their cleverly named What's That Stand For Stand.


mixing it up

Avery and Nate fell in love with this wooden mixer right out of the box.  They were fascinated with how the beaters worked (using the knob to make the beaters turn) and they enjoyed pouring the “flour" and "brown sugar” in the mixing bowl.  We decided to make cupcakes using shredded paper, pom poms and this Animal Parade Cupcake Kit.  I wonder what these two pastry chefs will be mixing up next!  This little mixer is a great first “countertop appliance” for any play kitchen.

Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending us this mixer and cupcake kit.
