Pancakes=Dads

Father’s Day is right around the corner and nothing screams “Dad” on a Sunday morning like freshly made pancakes. There is a debate raging in our household about who makes the best pancakes- the kid’s father or their grandfather.

Here are some pretty tasty recipes to secure the coveted “Best Pancake Maker Award” in your household.

School’s Out for Summer!

Well, not here in California- but almost.

I’m busy planning my son’s class end of year party with the other room parents. We have the good fortune of living close to the beach, so we figured what better place to let 52 graduating second graders run around and celebrate for a few hours?!

This is the inspiration board that I put together:Image

1. We’re getting the adult and kid sandwiches & salads from Clementine in West LA {http://clementineonline.com}

2. I’m hitting up friends to make the lemonade and summer themed desserts

3. I’ll be making the DIY decorations {a big thank you to… http://columbia.wedding101.net/blog/2013/01/18/friday-diy-dip-dyed-coffee-filter-garlands/}

4. The icees will be from the delicious Di Dio’s Italian Ice in Santa Monica

The guest list is blowing up, so I hope that it’s a fun day for everyone!
