I was out of town this weekend visiting family. While family trips to attend family functions are fun (my daughter only had 10 meltdowns), my husband and I always return home exhausted.
After we stumbled through the door, my daughter seamlessly laid down for her nap (hooray!). I was hoping my son would plop on the couch and watch TV or take a nap (which is what I wanted to do), but he wanted to conduct a science experiment, bake cookies, make lemonade, and take pictures!
I let him take a couple of pictures with my camera. His photos of objects extremely close are brilliant! He convinced my husband to make lemonade. Lastly, he started to pull out ingredients to bake cookies. With all the decadent food we enjoyed this weekend, I agreed to baking but only to my healthy chocolate chip zucchini bread.
My son sprayed the loaf pan, squeezed in a splash of lemon juice, shredded the zucchini, held the grater while I shredded more zucchini, and finally decided to rest (thank goodness)! We baked a scrumptious yet healthy treat to for everyone enjoy!
