Bake Camp

Yesterday, Alex attended a Bake Camp at a local bakery! There are 2 themes to choose from: cookies or cakes. She choose cookies, though she wants to take the cake camp now, too.

It was neat that she really got to work in the kitchen! They made 3 batches of dough: sugar cookies (the best EVER!), chocolate chip, and M&M (which somehow didn't get home with her).

They cut out shapes with the sugar cookies. I was told they would learn to decorate them, but they didn't. But, we love the cookies anyway.

And, Alex got to take home a LOT of cookies! (The butterflies aren't something they made.) She even got to take home a big ball of chocolate chip cookie dough that we can bake later. She had lots of fun while I enjoyed some shopping. And, we are all enjoying the yummy cookies!

P.S. I just haven't felt up to blogging lately. I think I am just really enjoying being free from school for awhile. And, I'm really working hard on my new diet & exercise with SparkPeople. I hope to get back to regular posting & reading soon. We'll be headed to New Mexico soon and I hope to post while I'm gone.

Bake camp looks so fun! What a great opportunity for your daughter! I'm checking out SparkPeople - sounds like just what I need to get motivated. Thanks for sharing.

Those cookies look so good! Yum! Glad to hear that she had so much fun. I know what ya mean about the blogging thing. I love to blog, but for some reason I have been skipping it because we are just enjoying our summer.

Have a good trip to New Mexico. By then all cookies are finished? :-)
I have doubt whether I will blog during Grade 4. It seems there will be so much to do. Enjoy a carefree and lovely summer holiday.

Hi Dana,

I just wanted to drop by and say Hi! I thought you might like my recent post on Fun and Frugal Summer activities for kids.

I've had the grandkids and their mom for a I ended up with some super cute photos and videos.Videos: feeding ducks, horseback rides, baby taking a bath in a tummy tub (so funny!) etc.

It looks like your daughter had a wonderful time baking! How fun!

Friday, I'll be posting videos of tractor rides, swinging, and rolling down a hill in a horse's water barrel.

Hope you are having fun! Bet you are on a trip..huh?

Bake camp? I want to go to bake camp! What a great idea. I suppose you gotta have a kid to do!
I know what you mean about the blogging. I've been so busy and I'm on Facebook so much now, that I haven't been in the mood to blog.
