Last week was one busy week but we did so many fun things!
here. 12 slices of bacon, 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper. Mix the brown sugar, water, and red pepper together and the brush generously over bacon. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. I recommend putting it on a wire rack and letting the grease drop on a foil-lined pan below. I also recommend watching it closely because we burned the first batch. But this bacon is SO GOOD!
Friday morning we met up with Jenna, Lindsey, and Heidi and all of the kids to go to Chick-fil-a and play. Of course I took zero pictures but in my defense Reid was like a little Houdini that escaping the play area and I was just trying to keep up with him!
He escaped (we were sitting there facing the door and the play area is clear glass--the boy has ninja skills!!) and went to the bathroom one time. I found him and explained that it was great that he stopped playing to go potty but that he needed to tell Mommy because I needed to know where he was. Then he escapes again...with all 4 of us watching the door...and comes back with a brownie he had taken off the counter. I went and paid for it. Then, as we were leaving and I was getting Lilly a refill--he disappears AGAIN. I couldn't find him and was freaking out. Luckily my friend Rebekah's dad was there and went into the men's bathroom and brought him out. I get him locked down in the car seat and give him the panicked mom what-for. We pick Matt up and the following conversation takes place.
Reid: Daddy I runned away 2 times.
Matt: I heard. That is not okay. That is unacceptable. It is not safe!
Reid: I know. I won't runned away next time.
Quiet for a second
Reid: Mommy I am really sorry.
Me: (Heart melting a little.) It is okay buddy but you can't do that again. It scared Mommy!
Reid: Okay Mommy! (He pauses for a second and says) It's all part of the plan.
Matt and I: ?????
