Spring 2017

Spring in Missouri seemed to start earlier this year than in years past.  It was 70 degrees some days in January and February and it was BLISSFUL!  We took tons of long walks – we bought a hiking toddler backpack and so far it’s been a hit.  Paul loves carrying it, and Lucy loves sitting up to see the sights.  That is, until she falls asleep.

We had some visitors for a few days when our nephews were on spring break.  We played until we couldn’t play anymore.  Lucy never stops moving these days.

One of her favorite books is “Moo Baa La La La”.  She insists on sleeping with it and knows almost the whole book, word for word.  “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” is another favorite.  Animals!

Cloth Diapers 101

cloth-diapers

When I started my food blog I never (ever!) imagined that I would write a post about cloth diapers.  But I guess that a lot happens over the course of five years and here.we.are.  I am, by no means, an expert.  I just know what I know.  I did...
