I made these adorable sheep cupcakes for Easter, based on these directions.
I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe (German chocolate cake from the Babycakes Covers the Classics cookbook), and store-bought frosting to save a little time.
After our weekend in Steamboat Springs, we continued west to Vernal, Utah (our home base for exploring Dinosaur National Monument). My favorite thing about Vernal was this gigantic pink dinosaur that welcomes you to the small city.
If you stop to admire her, you’ll notice that her eyes move.
Last year my sister gave me this idea for a cute Easter breakfast and I made it about as simple as possible. I think these bunny pancakes will be an Easter tradition for our family, since they are so easy to make.
I made banana pancakes using the recipe from my Babycakes Covers the Classics cookbook, and added a little tail made of shredded coconut. Of course, these pancakes are best served with a side of chocolate bunny. Hoppy Easter!
The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is a great place for wildlife watching just outside of Denver, and has been surprisingly uncrowded both times I have visited. You can watch cute prairie dogs, birds, the occasional deer, and bison! In some areas the bison are in large fields and there is a fence between the bison and your car.
And in other areas the bison are free to walk across the road and right up to your car! It’s very exciting, and at least a little bit scary, to see these giant animals (the largest land mammal in North America!) just a few feet away.*
*These photos were all taken on my phone without any zoom.
An accidental self-portrait from Paris…
If that store had been open when we passed by, I probably would have left Paris with a new wallet, clutch, and perhaps a dress if they had any in my size.
Writing this post led me to look up the designer whose name is written on that big heart in the photo, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, and I just found an online store full of super cute items to dream about buying!
We visited Prince Edward Island for a long weekend in the middle of August and had so much fun exploring the quaint little island province. Here’s a photo journey through some of the highlights of our trip!
Continuing the recent photo series of foxes in our yard, here we have foxy caught taking a morning nap under a nice shady bush.
Do you remember our furry neighbor, Foxy Brown? There’s a second fox that has also made a few appearances in our yard. Earlier this week, this fox spent a sunny morning lazing amidst the wildflowers.
Winter seems to have begun in March this year – this is the most snow we’ve gotten so far this season! There’s a fox that we see occasionally in our yard, but she’s camera shy, so I hadn’t caught a photo of her yet…until today! Meet our neighbor, Foxy Brown!
When I saw Foxy Brown in our snowy yard this morning, I kept thinking of this song, and I love this video for it.
And here’s the original Foxy Brown in action.
