I made lemon buttermilk pancakes with buttermilk syrup, strawberries and bacon for breakfast while the kids found their baskets. We started a family tradition a few months ago where I make a big breakfast and we talk about a certain topic. Sometimes the topics derail into conversations about ninjas, Legos, kid jokes and fighting but we hope that our kids are internalizing some of the conversations about kindness, the earth, confidence, equality, etc.Fox Hollow Farm, the most charming farm and manor house in Issaquah Valley. I was "ooo"ing and "ahhhh"ing as we went along. It was so peaceful, even filled with people. This is basically my dream house and the grounds are insane - a charming barn filled with baby spring animals, lush gardens filled with thousands of tulips, enormous lilies and hydrangeas, free-roaming peacocks, a rushing river with a fire pit and enormous deck. In the late spring and summer, it has the feel of a country fair with old-fashioned family activities (including horseback riding) and food - kettle corn, homemade pie, ice cream, shave ice, cotton candy, lemonade, etc. We can't wait to go back this summer!
