Pancakes and the Sprayground

Our family loves pancakes,
(okay, so really it's just me and the hubs, the twins will only eat them sometimes) 
but we prefer to have them for dinner instead of breakfast.
As far as pancake batter goes, we have used a mix before but my favorite is homemade. 
They are light and fluffy, perfectly cooked. 
This is my "go to" recipe. Simple, quick and delicious!

Pancake Recipe

1 egg
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. buttermilk
2 T. vegetable oil

Whisk together until smooth. Cook on a griddle or in a non-stick pan on the stove. No oil necessary. Enjoy!

Hurray for Spring! We've been taking advantage of the warmer weather as much as possible. This includes walks after dinner, playing at the park, and we can't leave out the water activities.
Taking 2 very energetic three year old's to the park is an adventure in it's self. At some point during the visit they inevitably run in the opposite direction. One wants to play on the little kid play set, the other wants to play on the big kid play set. I'm thankful they are best buddies. It helps because they are usually obliging when I need them to go to one or the other area to stay together.
This morning we were at a park that also has a spray ground. Both the climbing/sliding area is just as much fun as the water park so I had my work cutout for me today.
 They love the water park but are usually cautious, today though they went right in
without any coaxing from mama.
Love how they are growing up. Love seeing them enjoy life. Love, love, love them.
