The other day I purchased some blueberries and blackberries at the local Walmart grocery store, I've been buying them at our Publix and they've been super yummy. Well when I tasted the ones from Walmart I was super disappointed they tasted like they had been frozen... not what I spent my money on.
I decided to try to salvage them by baking with them. The boys had a great time helping me make a blueberry/blackberry bread.
They even helped clean the beaters... isn't that the best part of baking?
When we were done, Blake was concerned about the mess they had made. I have noticed that lately he has been more and more concerned about getting messy, and anyone who has followed this blog for a while should know that messes do not bother me. I looked at Blake and asked "did you have fun baking?" He replied... "oh yeah!" I said "It's easy to unmake a mess, but you can't undo the fun... and having fun is what is important."
After they went to bed I was thinking about the conversation with Blake, and it's so true... you can clean up the mess that is made while having fun, but you can't create fun that wasn't had.
Hope you have some fun today... even if it is messy
(on a side note... the bread came out... well not the best so it became critter food... oh well at least they had fun making it)
