kale chips with sesame seed

I made kale chips because I thought it would be a great afternoon snack for me and the kiddies. Kale chips and carrot ginger juice, yum! I know, I'm such a rockstar mom, I feed my kids awesome nutritious food - yeah, right. They didn't really like the kale chips and were fine drinking the carrot juice until I told Christian "come get some carrot ginger juice before it's all gone" and they immediately decided that they hated the juice, because they hate ginger because ginger is too spicy. I'm not a fan of spicy food myself, but really?! I don't even think Maria knows what ginger is. Whatever, I was so not in the mood to argue. I was in the mood to get out and enjoy the sunshine and not make a storm out of something so unimportant like kale chips. Besides, more for me!

After snack time I told Enzo and Maria I wanted to go to the park. They were down with that idea until I told them they needed to clean up first, at which point Maria went into hysteria and Enzo looked at me as if I had just said something in Greek. Ohhh-kayyyy then, I guess this is how it's going to be. Fine. Forget cleaning up, lets just get out!

We got to the park and our old neighbors were there. Love. Also, there was a dad who was there with a guitar playing for 2 hours straight. Love. And I just want to make it very clear that he was totally paying attention to his kid. He would follow his kid around and play the guitar simultaneously. I think it was a great trick so that his kid wouldn't ask him for a push on the swings, you know 'cuz dad has his hands full. If this is the case then double love!

Seriously, remind me to leave the house more often.
