Nope! Just my own recreation! Now that I'm going to Big Meadow for girls camp, I wanted to find a yummy campfire treat for the girls. Well. . . I think I did. This is sooooooo divine! Okay, maybe not for everyone but if your like me and you love, love, love chocolate chip cookies with a little ice-cream on top your gonna dig this! Here's Makelle helping be make the dough and press it into the dutch oven.

This is what it looks like after baking for 30 minutes on 350 degrees. Must I say PERFECT! Only for those who love a soft middle.
What happened to this picture I have no clue. I didn't even take the picture this way but I'm too lazy to fix it. . . sorry! Here is my delicious PAZOOKIE!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 and 1/2 cubes butter
1 c. dark brown sugar
1 1/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbs. vanilla
Mix well. Add in dry ingredients.
3 1/3 c. flour
3/4 Tbs. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
I used about 1/2 the dough for my 4 quart dutch oven.
Now go take on the pazookie! I know you can do it!

Quick Trip To Twin Lakes

We were able to spend a few days up at Twin Lakes with Grandma Grandpa Beck.

Even though it was chilly we were all smiles!

The girls had a great time feeding the blue jays peanuts.

So excited that I got a close up of this doe!

I love this picture! The family always teases Jake's dad for the way he hugs, he's so proper that he never gives us ladies bear hugs. I guess a beautiful granddaughter can wear any old man down!

I just think he looks HOT!

Here we are getting ready to go fishing! This was a first for the girls. They loved every minute of it.

Daddy's proud to see his daughter not only enjoying the boat ride but doing so in a Steelers hat!

How do you sleep on a boat?

Morgan loved fishing. She actually caught a fish but it was too heavy for her pole. If you look close enough you can see a doe in the background.
Makelle is still all smiles!

Maddy was all smiles when she caught her fish. Once she realized the fish was dying, she was all tears. Needless to say we needed fish counseling.
It didn't help that the girls watched their dad clean his fish! We had such a nice relaxing time.
Thanks for the wonderful time Grandma and Grandpa. We already miss you!
