Playtime, pizza & cupcakes

IMG_0652eLisa & Briana came to play today and as always the girls, big and little, had a nice day.  Lisa & Bri tagged along as I ran a last minute errand then we took the girls to GiGi’s to pick out cupcakes for after lunch.  We returned to the house where the girls played and Lisa watched as I cooked and proved to be a valuable asset in being my taste tester.  She was a great taste tester too as she tried and enjoyed everything. 

For lunch the little girls enjoyed “gourmet” (frozen) pizza while Lisa and I dined on Fire Roasted Tomato and Chicken Tortilla Soup.  Lisa declared the soup delicious and said she’s going to make it at home.  You too can make it at home, just click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.Fire Roasted Chicken Tortilla Soup

It was a fun day but it ended too soon as Lisa & Bri had late afternoon plans and Maisie had her swimming lesson & gymnastics practice.  Tomorrow is Metro Retro, Maisie’s third meet of the season so she’s off to bed early tonight and hopefully will sleep so that tomorrow she’ll be well rested and ready to do her best.
