Busy Morning in the Harper Kitchen

We have been very busy baking this morning. After breakfast and still in their pajamas, we made a birthday cake for Bryan's mom. Bryan's parents will be coming up for supper tonight and will enjoy the cake then.
All the girls are ready to help mix, pour and beat!!
 Kaleigh using the mixer (Cassidy was not happy)
 Abby couldn't get enough
 While the cake was baking the girls got dressed and then we were back at it in the kitchen making soft pretzels!! They are a nice treat to make every once in a while.
 The girls enjoyed the finish product while having a tea party!!

Kaleigh has always loved to help out with just about anything. Cooking, cleaning, you name it and she's usually more than willing to help. Today, I did a load of laundry and she helped me put the towels that were in the dryer away so we could add this load into the dryer. She  said that she wanted to do them and when I told her I didn't think she could reach them, she said she could with a stool and she enjoyed every minute. I kept asking her if she needed help and she kept telling me "No!" She only needed help with one lonely sock that was in the back!!

 Abby wanted to help so Kaleigh would give the clothes to her to put in the dryer. What team work!!

I sure do love my helpers!!

Growing up, our family went camping at Westmoreland State Park every summer. The last time I went was when I was pregnant with Kaleigh so it has been a few years. We spent several days this week there with my family.
The girls enjoying some down time in the cabin!!
 Sharks teeth is a must. You can hike down a path at the park and there are several others places we go to search for them. I have a large jar of all the sharks teeth that I've collected over the years. Here Cassidy is looking inside the circle for one.
 Showing us her find!!
 The girls biked from morning until dark. They have a great paved bike path for the children. We biked it every day.
 Cassidy at the playground

 Kaleigh enjoyed playing in the water/sand!!

Butterfly Exhibit

A couple of weeks ago Back Home on the Farm had their Butterfly Exhibit. Last year I took Kaleigh and Cassidy and although they didn't really take to the butterflies they enjoyed all the other things to do there. We went with my friend Stephanie, and her two daughters.

 The horse swings are always a must!!
 Cassidy and Anna

We all had a wonderful time!!

Over Memorial Day weekend, we were back at Lost River with my parents enjoying the day. Here is a family picture that was taken there.
