I baked last night, for what seemed like forever. I can't really complain though, because everything was from a mix, it was just time consuming and I didn't get started until after 8. I am inspired by Bakerella but know I am not even close to her. I'm not even "not martha" but I'm trying. I made Betty Crocker's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies (brookies or crownies in our house) and they were delicious. I made one batch for us and one batch for a going away party at work for one of our Vascular Surgery residents. This week I'm going to make sugar cookie favors for a great friend's baby shower. This requires me to flock and flood, but I will be up to the task. Pictures to come!

The next Tiger?

Max and I volunteered at a golf outing on Friday and he had so much fun riding on the carts. I let him drive once, but quickly took the reins when he landed us in tall grass! He also worked on his short game a little bit. It was so cute! The second picture is of Max and me with Nick Zyromski, the wonderful HPB surgeon I used to work for at IU.

summer fun

It's June and we are well into summer now. The boys have been out of school for a couple of weeks and seem to be enjoying the freedom. Max more than Lucas, though, as Lucas has been bogged down by 4-5 Math lessons each day. I keep telling him it will pay off in the end but I'm not sure he believes me right now. Soccer and baseball are winding down this week but taekwondo will go through the summer since it's year round.

Lucas is getting ready to go to camp the third week in June with one of his good friends and we're all excited/apprehensive about that. My nephews are coming to town (sister and BIL, too) at the end of June-beginning of July and I have some friends coming home so it should be a fun summer!
