Watch out Tiger Woods

We finally made it to Cherry Hill's miniature golf course this summer and took Ben along. He lasted about two holes with the kids club then absolutely insisted he had to use the grown up club for he rest of the game. He caught on to the rules quickly and loved playing the game.  Dave and I sat back and marveled at our amazing little boy.

Ben sure does love his cousins and they are so good and patient with him!

My Little Cook

I had just made gorgeous chocolate zucchini cupcakes for visiting teaching. After pulling them out of the oven I headed to the bathroom to do my hair and makeup. Ben followed me but soon got bored. I could hear him in the kitchen but decided he would be fine for a few more minutes while I finished up.

This is what I found.  In less than five minutes he had pulled a chair over to the stove, destroyed 6 cupcakes, pulled a spatula out of the canister on the counter, emptied one cupcake into a frying pan on the stove, and started stirring his fried cupcake creation. 

Needless to say, I was pretty upset. I cleaned him up and took him right to bed for a nap. Only after he was asleep could I laugh at it. 

Then the next Sunday he moved the chair again. This time I was in the kitchen with him but working at the table. You can imagine how fast I flew to his side when I heard the stove click on. Ben decided he wanted to cook the pot holders. He placed two of them on the burner, grabbed a spatula, and turned on the stove. 

Yes, I've learned my lesson. We have to watch him like a hawk in the kitchen. On the bright side, he is definitely showing promise as a great cook!
