Fresh Bread and Ice Cream Sunday

When Instagram crashes, you remember you have a blog that you love.  This is our Memorial weekend.
Nana taught the girls how to make Rosaries.
Andy and Anne-Marie played nicely with the cars.  I didn't know Andy even knew he had cars in his room.  I can't remember the last time I saw him play with toys!

Anne-Marie is looks so tiny in this picture! She's hardly bigger than the toys!

We had our first Ice Cream Sunday of the year on Memorial Weekend.  It was Philadelphia-style chocolate ice cream with bittersweet chocolate stracciatella (that's melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chips, for the uninitiated). I don't know, I think Renee like it.

Just when things were calm, all the girls got into the act with their brother.

Saturday morning I woke up to find Daddy and his little girls watching North America together.

I've been trying to make bread instead of buying it.  So last night I used the bread maker to make the dough and thend shaped it into a regular loaf pan an baked it myself.  I don't know what they do to store bread to ruin it, but it is completely different than homemade!

And finally, a video of the crazy play time. (Are you on Vine?  It captures the insanity a little better with the loop)
