Tonight we took a ride to Kohl’s to get daddy a couple of pairs of work pants. The kids were very well-behaved and being so cute. They were hugging each other with no prompting from me.

It’s crazy how long Samantha’s hair is getting! It’s so curly that you don’t get a sense of how long it really is until you get it wet.

I had three bananas that were turning really dark. They were getting to the point where I either needed to bake something with them or throw them away. I decided to make banana bread. Of course it was from the America’s Test Kitchen cookbook. The two main points about this recipe is not to over mix (that makes the loaf too dense) and it calls for 1/4 cup yogurt (it adds a little tang and helps keep it moist). So yummy!

I am so happy that my wonderful husband put in a new kitchen sink for us! The old one was a white, cast iron sink. It was pretty, but there were scratches in it and for some reason the previous owner who put it in thought leaving the caulking around the edges haphazardly was a good look. Our new stainless steel sink is soooooo much better! It’s bigger and deeper, so doing dishes will be easier. Also, our old sprayer used to stick all the time (the main reason we decided to replace the sink) and this new sprayer is part of the faucet. Beautiful 🙂

It was relatively mild today (in the 40s), so I took the kids for a walk around the neighborhood. I was so proud of Samantha, she walked almost the whole way all by herself! The kids just love being outside. They both collected various sticks, rocks, and leaves and enjoyed throwing them the storm drains.

I took the kids to the grocery store with me today, that’s always an adventure. Nicholas had soccer in the morning and was still wearing his jogging suit. I thought he looked so funny, like a young Italian mobster or something. Especially with the healing black eye!

Today I ate lunch at a farm to table restaurant in Nashua NH called Pig Tale. They have the most delicious pizza. I got the one called the PigTale. It had pork shoulder, bacon, sausage, and pickled onions. I know, not the most healthy, but the ingredients were very fresh. It was yummy!
