A Saturday in Spring!

A cook follows recipes. A Chef creates. Today Zander began to experiment with the sourdough pancake recipe. He knew I would love french toast but I've not had any for a long time as they have both eggs and milk.  He dipped  bread in pancake batter and voila....a Chef is born.
YUM - I ate one and Stacia had the other - we both loved them. 

Arielle and Nolan went ice skating for the first time today. It was a Club Beyond trip. 

Michael and I set out to spend some fun time with Zander and Stacia. 

First we headed Chuo Park - we've been waiting for the snow to melt.

Our next stop was Cafe Aomori for something hot to drink and a treat for the kids. We took our warm tunnies to the Weasel's Den for 30 minutes of play. I don't often drive to base when we have free time, so this was a treat for the kids. 

We picked up the older two and drove to the ocean. We will miss being 3 minutes from the ocean. 

Our coats usually make us the most colorful when we are out and about
While the kids enjoyed playing with the neighbors, Michael and I previewed this Visual Bible - Gospel of John. A FREE 3 hour long movie  on You Tube which uses the text of John as the script. We may watch it during one of our family circle times this week. It is a good one to watch before Good Friday or Easter. 

We rounded out the day with a dinner of soup, bread and a couple of salads and a time of reconnecting as a family around the Word, giving thanks and sharing requests at the end of the day.

Choosing Joy!
