Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Blender Pancakes

My friend, Kelly, gave me this awesome recipe for "Blender Pancakes." They are 100% whole wheat, but they don't taste like it. We've been enjoying them a few times a week.

3/4 cup whole wheat (You don't grind or soak it, just pour it in.)
1 cup milk
dash salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
2 tsp baking powder

Pour wheat, milk, and salt into blender. Blend for 5 minutes. Add eggs and oil, blend and add baking powder while still blending. Pour onto hot skillet. Don't let mix sit too long before using it. Makes 8-10 pancakes. Add grated apple, sliced bananas, or strawberries for variety.

Here are some we topped with fresh peaches. YUMMY!

Also, they are a lot less messy than smoothies.

Happy 4th!

We had a very fun weekend, filled with...
-a party and parade with playgroup friends
-replacing the brakes on both cars (0k, not the most fun part of the weekend- but productive!)
-a downtown festival
-a cook-out and fireworks with Aunt Suz and Uncle Sean
-a trip to the pool with the Horrances
-Gelato from Gnam-Gnams (Have you tried this place? It is awesome!)

Here are some photos:

We love our country and our freedom!

Clara's Ballet Recital

Clara LOVED the ballet class she has been taking this summer. She dances around the house, all day, and is always pretending to be a character from the book/movie series Angelina Ballerina. Her favorites are Angelina, Alice, Flora, or Felicity, and while she is pretending to be them, she bosses around an imaginary Henry).
