Life in Pictures! {instagram style}

I love my i-phone, like love, love, love it!  I have never had a "new" phone before, we get used ones off Ebay or get the free ones with our contract.  So when Eric surprised me with one to say I was excited would be an understatement!  I love the camera on the i-phone, it takes better pictures then my regular camera!  Plus, I am in LOVE with instagram.  I just love how quick and easy it is to take a pic {semi} edit it, and post it.  Voila!  So fun and easy!  Now all you non i-phone users can use instagram, too.  I highly recommend it.

Here is our life in pictures this week {instagram style}
This bridge is in our little village where we live...it leads to a nice walking/running trail, beautiful flower garden, playground, and lots of other little trails and fun stuff.  We love playing at the park and then crossing the bridge back to the village to go to the malt shop.  Yes, we have entered Mayberry and I love every second of it!

Yesterday a box of Easter goodness came for the girls.  It was from my mom and step-dad, and they delivered this year.  The girls had fun spreading the Easter grass all over our living room, mom and dad however, did not have as much fun cleaning it up!  Thanks, Grandma!  This was Molly and Lucy posing after the big box reveal.  Lucy is happy, I promise, I think she was trying to kiss Molly, who knows?!

I saw this recipe for pancake muffins going around on Pinterest, but never pinned it.  Then this morning while I was trying to figure out what to make for breakfast, I got on and pinned it.  I didn't click the picture, I just used the recipe that was typed out under the picture.  It was super easy!  1cup pancake mix, 2/3 cup water, 1/2 cup syrup, top with whatever you want!  We chose chocolate chips, yumm!  You bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  To do over, I would bake longer, mine were done, just kinda gooey.  They tasted great, next time I would want them a little more done.  Maybe because I filled them so full?  Next time I think I will bake them for 15-18 minutes.  Again, quick and easy!

Today was Molly's last day before Spring Break starts.  Tomorrow is the Milwaukee Brewer's home opener.  So the kids celebrated today by having a tailgate party at school.  They grilled hot dogs, had chips, cookies, and juice boxes.  They reenacted the Sausage Races, if you don't know what that is YouTube it, they are pretty funny.  They did all things baseball today, and Molly was so excited about the day.  Like was up and dressed by 6:15am so excited.  School starts at 8:39, ha!!

Tomorrow starts Spring Break...on the agenda is a picnic and playing at the park.  I am trying to have something to do everyday of break so we all don't go insane!  So if you have any ideas for me, please speak up :)  Don't forget to enter The Mercy House giveaway here, it ends on Sunday night.  Please, please enter!  You don't have to have a blog, just leave an email!

Have a great night, friends!

Yum on the pancake muffins! I haven't visited Pinterst as much as I would like lately so I totally missed out on these goodies!

I apparently also need to hope on the instagram train. I'm so behind!

I love that picture of the girls. Looks like Lucy is full of love for her big sis!

I hope you guys have an awesome Easter~
