*Full disclosure: the number of homemade/healthy snacks coming out of my kitchen has decreased since I began working full time. There are a few things, however, I have continued to make time for. One of them is homemade pancake syrup. It is just too easy, tastes better, and is so much cheaper.  

Homemade Maple Syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
Bring to a boil and reduce heat for 8-10 minutes. Turn off the heat and add 1 tsp. maple flavoring.

*On Saturday we took a bike ride to an ice cream shop :)

*This was such a sweet sight to come downstairs to this morning. The kids had woken earlier (surprise, surprise!). I came down to the two of them just chit-chatting away. I wish I had known before they saw me because I would have sat on the stairs and listened. :)

*It had been a while since we made our desert trip. Barnes and Noble and Costco today!

Aw, darn! For sure, you missed out on some great chit-chat!

And those "homemade" ice cream bars you told us about look delicious! We'll have to go there for dessert sometime when we're out there.
