Candy apples and Children's treats

On Saturday, we were invited to a children's treat at some friend's house. They were having the whole Sunday School over, and even though my children aren't part of that particular sunday school, they were invited anyway! The congregation G and I are part of is VERY small (7, total, not counting the kids!) so therefore it's a Sunday school of three. So our boys are often invited to join in other Sunday school's activities.

The couple that hosted it live in the country, so plenty of space for all the kids to run around. They played soccer for awhile, and while us ladies were busy preparing the meal and dessert, the children had a scavenger hunt. Liam was completely overjoyed to find the plastic easter egg with the twonies in it!

and I HAVE to blog about this~ I made brownies, oodles and oodles of brownies.......and........THEY TURNED OUT!!!!!! I have never before in my life been able to make brownies that were harder than pudding or softer than rocks!! I was so happy!

Anyhoo, after the scavenger hunt, it was grub time. The kiddos (and grown ups!) all chowed down and I think everyone was pretty stuffed by the time we were done.

FINALLY, it was candy apple time! All the kids lined up, got an apple on a stick and dipped it into the candy mixture. I'd never had or made one before, and it was kind of fun! Unfortunately I only took before pics, and none after.

A great time was had by all and we came home, very tired and sticky and completely happy!
