The kids were loving the lizard!
The lizards set free!
I just have to say that I am actually terrified of the lizards... but the kids love them.
Isaac loved the cake!
And the cool whip!
He also made a balloon drop!! It was super fun and kids loved it!!
Thanks Kurtis for a wonderful birthday!! You are amazingly creative and the best husband ever!! I could not ask for more!!

Derek and Miles were loving the great outdoors!! Boys will be boys!!
Derek loves to ride Miles' balance bike.
I must admit that I was really really nervous to let these boys go off on an adventure with out me... but they made it home safe and I am sure that I did not get all of the details and I am okay with that.
I know that Derek's sun hat is not the most stylish thing in the world but for us fair skinned people, NM is way too sunny. We must stay covered!

- 16 pieces String Cheese, Removed From Wrappers
- ½ cups All-purpose Flour
- 2 whole Eggs
- 3 Tablespoons Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Dried Parsley Flakes
- Canola Oil, For Frying
- Marinara Sauce, For Dipping
- 2 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
Slice string cheese pieces in half, for a total of 32 pieces.
Place flour in a small bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and milk.
In another separate bowl, combine panko bread crumbs with parsley flakes.
TO ASSEMBLE: One by one, roll mozzarella sticks in flour, then dunk in egg/milk mixture, then place in panko crumbs. Use your hand to sweep crumbs all over the mozzarella stick. Gently remove and place on a tray or cookie sheet. Repeat until all mozzarella sticks are coated.
***Place tray in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to flash freeze.***
TO COOK: Heat 1 1/2 inches canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add mozzarella sticks 8 at a time. Watch closely and turn over to evenly brown, cooking less than 2 minutes. Do not allow cheese to bubble and leak.
Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce.
