Friday Reflections – April 14

It’s Spring Break this week and we are living. it. up. By this, I mean that I am slowly getting out of bed and the boys are having much more screen time than normal. I did take the boys swimming the other day and that experience has solidified my resolve to keep these boys in swimming lessons. Goodness.

On Tuesday, we dodged the rain and walked to the cutest gelato shop in town! We hadn’t been there before but the hazelnut gelato will definitely have me coming back.

I have been working on some lemon recipes and, after a few more tweaks, I will have one to share. Below is a lemon poppyseed scone recipe I made. I love the rhubarb compote, it is the perfect complement to the scone. 

For some reason, I feel like my kids are usually wearing matching clothes. Please know that I don’t plan this. They pick them out themselves! Before climbing on the play structure, we had practiced some biking. He is soooo close!

The cherry blossom season is a magical time in Seattle. I love how the petals cover the ground. Soon the magnolia trees will bloom and my heart will truly believe that Spring is here to stay.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week and that it is filled with ice cream and spring time.
