Those photographs are absolutely beautiful. I am going to show them to Bill to see if he can take some of Sam like that. Once we get our new house, we should have a messy playdate too! How much fun!

Wow! That looks like so much fun! I have a 21 month old daughter and she would love it! I may have to follow your recipes. (Did the kool-aid stain their skin? My daughter is very blond and I can just imagine her staining her hair pink! It might be worth it.)

BTW- found you through The Mom Blogs. I'm a single mom also. Enjoyed your blog.
