Celebrating Katie’s 5th Birthday

Yesterday Maisie attended Katie’s 5th birthday party at Catch Air.  The facility has numerous inflatable bouncies which immediately had Maisie less than thrilled.  The noise of the fans which power the inflatables still triggers some anxiety for Maisie but after a short while she found some equipment that she enjoyed.

Maisie absolutely adored the child-sized exercise equipment and spent most of her time “working out.”photo (18)eA little cardio on a pint-sized Air Walker.

Maisie has had a busy two weeks, first with Team Gymnastics Camp and then without even a day off, a week of VBS.  So, after all the exercise and play at the it’s no wonder that Maisie fell fast asleep on the drive home.  Until I looked at the pictures, I guess I didn’t realize just how much activity she had done.

Another new recipe in my attempt to post more over on Cook Lisa Cook.       IMG_7854e14Coffee Crusted Steak served with Potato Salad with Bacon.  Something about this coffee crusted steak intrigued me in part because the original recipe used hazelnut coffee and it just seemed interesting.  I debated with myself on using flavored coffee and almost wimped out but in the end I used a chocolate coffee and the steak was awesome!!  Thing about this steak is that when you serve it, no one will really be able to tell that the coating is coffee but I guarantee that they’ll love the flavor.  I hope that you’ll give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.

  1. I think Maisie tried every piece of exercise equipment they had in the place! LOL!

  2. Oh my gosh, Maisie on that mini exercise equipment was a HOOT. And all those little girls were so darn cute!
