at the Ashfall Fossil Park
I learned to cook and bake at a young age from my Mother and it gave me such confidence and self esteem. The kids always bake with me and help me in the kitchen so this year I taught each of the kids to make a meal on their own for their family.
Jake making 'his' meal of Pigs in a Blanket
and fresh fruit salad.
|Sasha made fried chicken.|
Nina LOVES watermelon as you can see!
She made Breakfast Banana Splits for her
meal made with bananas, berries, Greek
yogurt, honey or jam and nuts,
yum and healthy.
Jake loved to help make pancakes,
especially chocolate chip when I let him
add the chips
Sasha made one batch of oatmeal cookies
and then she coached her siblings so
they can make them at home.
Nina LOVES making bread. She is mixing
up two batches, walnut and rosemary.

the tank got beached.
Sasha helped fold towels while visiting
Nina was out several times a day with
the animals. She would whinny and the
mares would whinny back. They formed
quite a bond of trust.
