Summer is definitely on the air now, we have a humid weather already - not three digits temperature yet, around 80 F so far. We have a heavy rain every day during a week , mostly 3 hours or so and than stop, when the rain stop than sun coming ... we can feel how humid the air is. What better than that especially during summer break ? jump to the swimming pool , off course.
Try to do the same like last year, I invite several my daughter friends to have play-swim day at home mostly from 2 - 5pm ; so every moms can enjoy their time alone without kids for several hours :)
What better than hear the sound of bunch of kids playing in the water ..
Yesterday, we have 4 girls play along (mostly we have 6 of them but the two(s) on vacation so they will join the crew next week - it's really fun ) I provide the snacks , drinks and fruits... this time the cookies I made was 'Mrs. Field Chocolate Cookies' - the truth I never try to buy those cookies at store, so I have no idea what the taste is, but I found the copy cat recipe through internet .. it was a DELICIOUS cookies !!! Before the kids come - the jar is full with the cookies, when they left only half jar full , ooh .. the kids will have sugar rush ... but all mom's didn't mind at all , since they are on summer break *grin*
Here is the recipe, I copy Top Secret Recipe site :)
