Attack of the Smoothie

One of our favorite treats for breakfast is whipping up a tasty smoothie. I used to think they were complicated and I should follow a recipe for ultimate tastiness. But all it takes is a variety of frozen fruits (from Trader Joe's - the best prices I've ever seen), yogurt, Juicy Juice and a banana or Dole Peaches. Yum.

These smoothies also have an unseen additional benefit - my children look hilarious when they are eating/drinking them. This is a photo of Ayla at 14 months old, looking at sweet as can be.

Now, be prepared for the emergence of Ayla's true animal instinct when it comes to delicious blended beverages:

Now, I thought we'd reached the pinnacle of ridiculousness. Ayla looks like she ripped the bleeding heart out of some animal! But the other morning, Jackson joined the club. He isn't quite as angry, but it didn't stop me from laughing for at least 10 minutes.

He had no idea what I was laughing at, but all he needed was a top hat and a bowtie and he would look like the villain out of a silent film. The second picture was after I gave him control of the cup and he threw it on the floor, splashing all surfaces with a nice berry blend. But, oh my god, it was worth it.
