Cheese (any kind you like)
1 package of buttermilk biscuits
and about 1 lb of ground beef
You will need a cup cake pan and stone pan to bake them with.
I put it on 350 degrees.
Then you take it out and put cheese on it. Let it melt on the beef while you put the 8 buttermilk biscuits into the cupcake pan. I used a brownie pan and split the biscuit dough so that I had tops and bottoms. My kids love them. Enjoy!
Why should Schlitterbahn be your choice this summer? They offer free parking, free life jackets for your precious ones, splash zones are designed to be safe for even the littlest guests, and best of all you can bring a cooler full of food!
98% of the water in the park is recaptured, filtered and reused throughout the season. At the newest resort in San Padre Island was built from wood reclaimed from the wildfires in Austin.
Its the perfect place to make memories with your loved ones this summer. especially your little ones. Its safe and fun. My favorite memories would be coasting down a ride while my husband follows behind and then, since I'm lighter, I keep zooming away while he slows up. Then I slowly float down the river to the docking area.
There are few things you should remember when planning your trip though...
- Wear swim shoes or flip flops. But with flip flops, be prepared to need to tuck them in somewhere while racing down the fast rides or squish your toes on them to hold them on. That water could take your shoes.
- Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation. There will be places that get hot without shade or outdoor carpeting. Wear sun tan lotion and bring extra. While you are in the sun and especially in and out of water, the sun can be brutal if you are not prepared. So you will need to keep reapplying throughout the day. Also keep your shoes with you at all times.
- Pack a lunch with plenty of drinks! They do allow you to bring food and drinks along. Just no alcohol or glass containers for safety reasons. The park does offer things like funnel cake and turkey legs though among others.
- My husband reminded me that you might want to wear sturdy glasses that can withstand the ride or take them off during the ride. Same can be said for hats. Having them attached to strings so they can't come off could be a great idea.
- Bring your waterproof camera to capture the fun moments! And remember to keep your ID, money, cards in a waterproof container. We found wonderful waterproof necklace containers before that carried everything and fit around your neck nicely but with adjustable tightness that doesn't let it get too snug.
There are also lots of fun facts that can get your kids into the fun while learning.
2) Schlitterbahn has been the birthplace of nearly every waterpark ride innovation including the world’s first uphill water coaster and the inland surfing ride, the Boogie Bahn.
3) Every park has a claim to fame:
·New Braunfels: World’s longest tube ride; America’s Favorite Waterpark
·South Padre: World’s first Transportainment system where interconnected rivers are queue lines for rides.
·Galveston: World’s favorite indoor park
·Kansas City: Midwest’s longest tubing adventure
So prepare for your fun adventure and let me know what you think about Schlitterbahn! What is your favorite ride?

It shows children various pictures that help them associate what it means to be loved. Being loved is not just something you feel, but it comes in the forms of actions taken by others to you. Things that make you happy, keep you well, and provide that warm fuzzy feeling that is typically associated with love. That's what real love is. But how do you explain that to a child? This book tells the story of love in pictures of the child with the parents/caregivers feeding, changing, bathing, hugging, teaching and otherwise "loving" the child.
This is how children learn, by seeing and hearing. Especially at younger ages.
I chose to make my book for my youngest. Uploading the pictures was a snap. The book is completely ready and all you have to do is adjust which wording you want, such as names and age. Then put the pictures that best match the wording on each page. Its short and simple. They provide you with a list of which kinds of pictures you should have ready. This helps you to know what to expect when getting ready to build your book. I highly suggest checking the list against your photos before attempting to make the book.
Each book is only $20. Plus shipping which is about $5.50 and is priority. After making my book, it took a week (or less) to be made and shipped! There are several books to choose from for just about every stage you might go through with your little ones. Transitions that may be difficult for your child such as potty training, new siblings or starting school.
It's in the way I give her a bath to help her stay clean. It's how she gets her morning hug. She also knows we are thinking about her even when she sleeps. I'm very pleased with the shipping. Using priority might cost a little more, but it's going to get here quicker.

Getting the keys was so much more exciting than most would think. It's a sign of starting fresh. Of feeling free. And so much joy that you could burst as you watch the children go wild.
We ordered a washer/dryer set that should arrive this week as well. I'm going to have a mountain of laundry to do... But I'm happy to say I'll finally have a set and they'll be in my own garage, another first for us.

First of all, this app was created by Target to save you money. It is comprised of Offers that you can browse through and add to your list. It will then generate a barcode that can be scanned by the cashier to take off the appropriate discounts for the items you chose. There are two ways to use Cartwheel. You can download the app to your smart phone. Just head to your app store and search for Target and/or Cartwheel. The other way is to go to http://cartwheel.target.com/ and sign up using your Facebook account. This will allow you to choose your offers and print the list with the barcode or even just the number that can be used by the cashier.
The drawback to this? Yes, you have to have Facebook. This is a bummer for those who don't use such social media. Perhaps in the future Target will adjust for those who don't.
There are so many savings to be had on Cartwheel. Anything from 5% to half off of just about everything you could want to buy. The discounts change often too, so you can check in whenever you plan to go shopping and see what they have. They can be paired with clearance items and with printable coupons to maximize your savings. This is considered a mobile coupon just like Shopkick.
Have any questions? Feel free to comment. I love sharing my knowledge about ways to save. Enjoy!
