summer rituals

we have an afternoon ritual around here that fits well into the dog days of summer. especially on days like today, when the thermometer read 102 degrees! ugh. every morning when sylvi wakes up, the first thing she asks for is a "pop" while she runs and points to the freezer. i have to admit, we've made some really good homemade popsicles around here this summer! they're tasty and cold and healthy and we eat one every single afternoon. this afternoon we had mango/peach/carrot and they were gobbled up in no time. they're also a great way to sneak in some raw veggies like spinach and carrots without any little people knowing about it! as you can see from the photos, they certainly don't mind ;)

  1. I remember doing the same thing as a kid in Texas when it got really hot. Good ritual to have :). Love you all. Xoxoxoxo

  2. So glad the girls have a "health conscious" mommy because regular popsicles are nothing but colored sugar water. Good advertisement for MAB bibs, too. Love and miss you all.
