Homemade granola bars & misc. vacation bits :)
I spied my mom bringing in some kale and asparagus from her garden this week, and I had to take a picture of the overflowing bowl of kale! :) We've been enjoying Turkey Sausage Kale Soup and Asparagus and Onions made with fresh ginger root -- what a treat!
The children LOVE my mom's Energy Bars. My mom created/adapted these bars over the past 10+ years and they're really good! I don't usually make them, so they're a real treat for the kids to get to eat them for breakfast. We ate all my mom had made, so I mixed up another batch with Ruth's help. :)

The lovely finished granola bars! :)
All of the children have been having loads of fun doing group things and things one-on-one with my parents and their aunts and uncles. And of course, all the different books, toys and games, playing outside, playing music... the possibilities are nearly endless! :)
I raided my sisters' tea stash and we've been drinking lots of tea together. I loved the Two Leaves and a Bud tea they had... so wonderful! My mom's teapot has been in near-constant use and rests under clean kitchen towels, filled with warm tea. :)
