Pizza at Home - New Hampshire Dairy Farms Ice Cream Pizza

Happy Sunday! Pizza day is taking a little bit of a different feel today. That's because we're in New Hampshire and one thing we've been seeing a lot of in New Hampshire has been dairy farms. We've stopped at 3 so far! Many of them have ice cream to buy, so for today, I'm making a New Hampshire Ice Cream cookie pizza!

The Flowers Explore - Gettysburg Cemetery - 2021/08/21

Today we're taking one more trip to the Gettysburg Battlefield. We saw the Battlefield, but there's one more place that has history in this location. Abraham Lincoln was here and gave his famous Gettysburg Address when the cemetery was dedicated on November 19, 1863.

Mystery Mountain Dew 2021 - Mtn Dew VooDew

Happy Halloween (just a little early)! 

For the third year in a row, Mountain Dew has released a mystery flavor, 2021 Mtn Dew VooDew! Back in 2019, the mystery flavor was Candy Corn. Then in 2020, it was Fruit Candy Explosion, which we figured out was Skittles. What will it be this year? 


The kids were excited for this one, remembering past VooDew taste tests and reminding me of the previous flavors. They've got good memories, especially when it comes to candies and sodas.
