We celebrated Ellie’s first and second birthdays at the house with some fun themes (a lemonade stand and “two-two” party). This year, with a new baby sister at home, we thought getting OUT of the house would be a better bet. For her third birthday celebration, we had a fun “birthday at the bay” party. Mission Bay in San Diego is our “happy place” and so we thought it would be perfect to share with friends and family for Ellie’s special day.
We love to snack around here. Whether we’re on the go or at home, we like to have healthy snacks that are easy, accessible and satisfying.
The bedtime routine is one we all look forward to in this house. It’s a time to slow down, get quiet and enjoy some one on one time before lights out. The highlight of the routine is when we cuddle on the chair and read books.
Understanding that the “great dairy debate” is a complicated and somewhat controversial topic, I wanted to simply share the experience I’ve had with moving my family away from cow’s milk to homemade nut milk – and the yummy cashew milk recipe that even my 2 ½ year old loves.
