We had a great summer--especially the 2 1/2 week trip we took in August to visit my parents and my husband's parents! These were some of the highlights of that trip:
Playing in the ocean
Waves tickling toes
Love for Grammy & Sampa
Grows and grows and grows
Time with Mom and Dad
Was a treat for me,
Plus time with my old friends
And with my cute hubby.
In northern California
We got a needed break
From humid summer weather
(And Hubs swam in a lake!)
When Grandma played with them,
The kids had so much fun!
And Grandpa's blueberry pancakes?
Zoodle ate a ton!
The memories we make
On trips to see the fam
Make me very thankful
Of just how blessed I am!
I've been thinking about breakfast lately because of this blog series. While we had a few special breakfasts during our trip (like donuts and those fantastic blueberry pancakes), most mornings we stuck to easy, healthy options like cereal.
Thankfully both sets of grandparents had a nice variety of cereals for us to choose from. My in-laws had a box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes that had some pictures of old-style Kellogg's Corn Flakes trucks, and those pictures really caught Zoodle's attention! He kept asking for "the truck cereal." I wasn't sure if Corn Flakes would be an interesting enough flavor for his discriminating toddler palate, but he liked them!
My husband happened to turn on a documentary on cereal while we were in California, and I learned that Kellogg's Corn Flakes was the first cold cereal ever produced. It's pretty cool to see that after all these years, it's still popular...and it's even tasty enough for a two-year-old!
