Feeling Lucky

It was a lucky weekend for the boys and I!  Look what Dane won at Fantasy Island!

I usually talk the boys out of these machines because we almost always leave disappointed.  But Dane really wanted the Minecraft Ocelot – his favorite of all of the animals.  We couldn’t believe it when he won it on his second try!  Can you tell he was excited?

There is apparently a theme this year.  I have not seen giant sand sculptures in years and now they are all over.

The boys had a great time with their cousins.  They were good about going on rides together too.  We couldn’t believe it when all three of them squeezed into one bee though!

We got lucky at the kids running club this weekend too.  While we were running we found our mascot!  Hopefully it won’t be too fitting.  lol  The kids decided to call him Bob.

It was fun running and chatting with the kids again.

We had some of my favorites this weekend.  Carrot Ginger Soup is never a bad idea.


Sometimes you just have to make pancakes for dinner!  We love breakfast foods – just not in the morning.  These pancakes are so easy and it’s simple to change them up a bit too.  Usually we add pumpkin puree for pumpkin pancakes, but tonight we went with chocolate chips.



Easy Pancakes


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • large dash of cinnamon
  • large dash of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil


  1. Mix all ingredients together until combined. If too thick (because of pumpkin puree, etc), add more milk.
  2. Cook in a pan over medium heat until bubbles form on the top of the pancakes. Flip the pancakes and cook for another minute or so.

So, I am wondering, what is your favorite breakfast food to have for dinner?
