Apparently Allison has completely abandoned her role as chief writer and editor of this blog. Don't worry, we are not dead. After last week's brief "hail" storm, we quickly decided to go to California for the week. Thus, we are currently in California enjoying the beautiful weather. We stopped at Zion's National Park on our way down. Since I haven't transferred those pictures to my computer, you will have to settle for pictures of cupcakes.
Anna does not like watching tv much. While that may seem good to some parents, it is a drag when your little ones won't stare at the tv for a few minutes so you can get things done. However, we recently discovered that Anna likes "kitchen shows." So, Anna and I watch a little food network during the twins' nap. As a result, we have started to cook a lot more interesting food. Last week we made pecan crusted chicken breast stuffed with bleu cheese and bacon. We also had lasagna rolls. Finally, we baked coconut cupcakes. Everything turned out better than I hoped. Anna is a great chef, although she typically walks off the job between 3 and 4 times a meal. She's always around when it's time to taste the final product.
Sorry about not posting much lately. Our life is relatively boring although we are enjoying our time in California. We are trying to figure out what to do for the rest of the week. Outside of a few meetings, I have the whole week to entertain the kids. I am debating taking them to L.A. or somewhere more exotic than Riverside but I am not sure they are old enough to enjoy anything like that.
