Just a few of our Friday favorites this week.
We went to the Bronx Zoo again. We’ve been trying to make the most of our membership before the cold weather comes, plus Violet was sick last time we went so it felt like we needed a do-over. I am loving all 4 of these little gophers in The Children’s Zoo.
We’ve been working on colors with Violet. She usually gets them wrong, but every once in awhile she is spot on….
Me: What color is the couch?
Me: What color is the fox?
Me: What color is bubba’s sock?
Favorite (Audio) Book
We are preparing for a road trip to Florida and have been stocking up on audio books. We just ordered all the books in this series, which was a favorite of mine growing up, and is now a favorite of my kids. If anyone has any suggestions for other great audio books I would LOVE to hear them, at this point we have listened to Harry Potter on tape about 11,000 times (okay maybe more like 11 times) and as much as I love it I am ready for something new.
Applesauce is big business around here. All three of my kids would eat it all day if only our supply could meet their demand. This Caramel Applesauce from An Aiming High Wife looks delicious. Our apple tree is just about ready to pick for the first time ever, and I think this recipe would be the perfect treat.
