The Poppies are poppin’!!!

The Poppies are Poppin’!!!  This pass weekend we drove to Lake Elsinore to check out the poppies in full bloom!  We couldn’t wait any longer to see these beautiful poppy flowers fields.  Specially after seeing all these awesome poppy flower posts all over Instagram. We decided to make the drive on Sunday morning.

Let me tell you it was crowded.  It was a great experience and the perfect Sunday morning in Poppyland!  I highly recommend you to visit and go early, wear Tennis Shoes if you decide to hike the trail into Walker Canyon.  Otherwise, you can still enjoy the poppies on the side of the road.

Plan that road trip now and visit before they’re gone!  Hey don’t forget the sunscreen you will definitely need it!

Enjoy!

Bebe and Mommy’s Landmark

Daddy is painting a new window trim.  Guess what?  Bebe and Mommy decided to sneak a bit of paint and get crafty!  Yes, We now have our very own Landmark at home!  Daddy even gave us compliments and extra paint to finish off our project!  The best part it was easy and peacy!

There is nothing like having your own Landmark!

All you need is a heart stencil, which is very easy to make. Fold a piece of paper in half, trace half of a heart, cut it, tape it to the floor and paint over it!  Wallah your done!

It’s been hot lately so I decided to make Bebe a delicious alternative to ice-cream.  By the way this is our second time making Creamy Pineapple Whip, only two ingredients and super easy to make.  A perfect hot weather treat that the whole family will enjoy, besides it’s healthy and yummy.

Inspired by Hawaii’s Famous Dole Plantation Pineapple Whip!

 

Ingredients:

1  can (20 oz.) of diced Dole pineapple -Frozen Overnight

1 cup of coconut milk

Directions:

Place frozen pineapple and coconut milk into a blender or food processor.

Blend till it becomes creamy.

Serve and Enjoy!

Optional *Garnish with fresh berries.

Note: You may have to add more coconut milk if your blender is not powerful enough.
