Scenes from the weekend

My niece, Toni, came to stay with us for the weekend. I picked her up on Friday afternoon and it was a non-stop chatter fest until yesterday afternoon. We did lots of fun stuff:

Grilled hot dogs

Made Rainbow Cake (the "recipe" is here but really you make a white cake mix, divide it into 6 bowls, and put food coloring in it. If Toni is any representative, kids LOVE it)

Frosted it with sprinkles:

And Shoveled it in our faces:

Nate shared two of his loves with Toni: Ice Cream & a Modified Poker Chip Toss (it was here that we realized we probably should get some real toys for her!)

We also went to the zoo!

All in all, a fun time with the little munchkin.
