It's a rainy day . . .

. . . but we're still managing to have some fun here in Florida on our Spring Break. Although clouds totally obscured the sun we took advantage of the still-warm weather and had some pool time. As it started to rain we climbed into the hot tub and held an inflated raft over our heads. Good thing, because it started to POUR! After the rain subsided we found a different way to amuse ourselves.

Here's a cute little marshmallow chick about to meet a strange fate. (Thanks to Denise and Friends for leaving us Peeps to play with!) First we place each Peep on its own plate. Then we open unwrap a piece of Dove chocolate. Next the poor little victim goes into the microwave.

In less than a minute the Peep has easily tripled in size!

We remove the hot marshmallow from the microwave. It no longer resembles any kind of chick. We place our Dove chocolate in the center and fold the hot, sticky marshmallow around it and . . .
. . . a new taste treat is born.

You really are the most amazing and inspirational woman! The kids are so lucky to have you in their lives. I wish I had my own who could learn from you.
