Colored Ice Cubes

IceCubes5

I reckon I’m all about making awesome things in ice cube trays lately.  Bristol is into solids now, so I’m making baby food and I have trays full of coffee cubes for my iced coffees.  YUM!  But I know that ice cube trays are meant to make ice, so I’m showing H20 some love today and making fun colored ice cubes!

Colored ice cubes make plain water fun for toddlers to drink, they make lemonade turn cool colors and -if you’re a cocktail hour type of guy/gal- vodka tonics are way more fun if you use colored ice.

These are -pretty much- just as they seem.  Color some water with food coloring (one drop goes a long way) and pour it into ice cube trays.

Once frozen, plop the cubes into a glass and be amazed at how totally rad (people still say that, right?) your bevie looks.

Water Fun

Our boy is half fish.  Or, amphibian, I should say.  He loves anything water…puddles, dog dishes, hoses and – in recent days – a water table and the farm pond.  I took these pictures yesterday and Sunday…80 degree weather calls such activities!!  Please enjoy these shots of my shirtless son in his Target brand diapers (*fist pump*).

Ok…this picture is, obviously, a little off–theme, but I made this bread after all of our water play.  Nothing like a carb-overload to really feel like you’ve rewarded yourself.  And believe me…I needed a reward.  It took 2 baths to get all the sand out of Evan’s hair.
