Saturday's seem to be just a magical day (that's what the goal is anyway) and this Saturday certainly fell into that category. It started with Carter finding mine and Matt's ice cream bowls from the night before that had just enough sticky stuff still in it that when Carter decided to wear them as hats they actually stayed on his head. Then it was time to bake Matt's new favorite thing Black Bottom Banana Bars/ Muffins so that they would be ready to go as soon as Matt woke up. And as always, Carter LOVES to help with the clean up. He does such a good job it usually ends up that Mom gets the floor beneath him all wet and clean too!
Then of course it's off to every little kids favorite Saturday morning activity: Cartoons! Carter loves to sing especially to some of his favorite shows.
This is hard work!!
When it got a little chilly outside, Carter came in to help me with some Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies I was making for a Lantern Walk we were doing with some neighbors at their family farm to symbolize the changing of the seasons.
Par for the course, I forgot to take the "after" pictures, but let me tell you they were DELICIOUS!! Thanks Heather for the great recipe.
Once nap and a BYU victory was accomplished we were off to the Lantern Walk full of buddies and dogs.
Carter enjoyed carrying around his own Thomas Lantern (eat your heart out Tyler T) and true to himself couldn't handle following in a nice neat row and was constantly challenging Celeste for the leader roll. Overall, it was a totally new and different experience and a great ending to a fabulous day.
