Leprechauns, Cheese Curds, and Corn Dogs

This weekend we made a quick trip to Idaho to visit Michael's family.  The weather was yucky but we still had fun.  Saturday morning the kids woke up to a table full of prizes left by the leprechauns.
Joyce gave me a shamrock plant that I love!  I saw those all over the place in Ireland.  I've been home for 14 years and I haven't seen once since - until now.  We enjoyed a breakfast of green waffles, sausage and milk in our new green mugs!

Later that day I stopped at the cheese factory and picked up some cheese curds.
There's nothing better for an afternoon snack than squeaky cheese!  The kids love it and we try to get some every time we go home to Idaho.

For supper Saturday night we tried out a recipe that Joyce found on Pioneer Woman for homemade corn dogs.  
They look a little cooky but they turned out good!

The kids also managed to spend some time out in the rain and mud playing in the haystacks, shooting guns and getting dirty.  They also played the Wii, watched some TV and put puzzles together.  

Makenna didn't go with us this weekend.  She stayed with a friend.  They are both in the High School play and there was a big rehearsal this weekend.  Plus it was her friend's birthday so they made a fun weekend of it.  It's so nice to know that she has a friend like Laura that she can be with!
It was a fun weekend for all and I'm glad we got to spend it with Michael before he headed off for another two weeks of work!
