Kids in the Kitchen: Pancakes {And Snow Play}

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed a fun weekend!!!

I love lazy day weekends with my family! We don't have any plans, just basically go with the flow and do what we want situation! Love that!!! This weekend was absolutely GORGEOUS weather for MN...We had temps in the 50's and beautiful sunshine! Before the snow melted, the boys and I enjoyed a fun time outside on Friday afternoon. Daddy built a snow castle with them on Saturday that only lasted a little bit because then it all melted and turned into a lake! LOL, but they had fun while it lasted!!!
One thing I LOVE to do with the boys is set up stools by the kitchen counter and make pancakes! They take turns pouring the ingredients, cracking the eggs and whisking the batter...I LOVE LOVE LOVE cooking with my boys in the kitchen, especially if it is something as easy as pancakes! And this recipe is absolutely DELISH! Hope you enjoy!!!
