Today Cade had his second gymnastics lesson.  He did really well! He even told my sister that he made a new friend... but he doesn't have a name.  At least it's a boy!

Today in class, they focused on having fun, jumping, ta-das and lot's of hanging from a bar with legs up and with legs out.  I think he likes it- so glad we joined.

After gymnastics we headed to the gym for playtime for Cade and Pilate's for me.  This was the most intense Pilate's class I have even taken.  I thought my legs were going numb at one point... but once I was up on my toes I had feeling back in them.  Kind of a weird feeling-- kind of like jello. 

Tomorrow we're headed to the splash pad at market street.  I took Cade there the other day and he loved it.  Hopefully a friend or two will join us.

Afterwards, I'm going to attempt to bake cookies!   I found a new website called abbynormally.com.  The cookies look just like chocolate chip... except they are "green" as in "healthy".

1/2 cup pureed avocado (about one medium avocado—thrown in the food processor)

1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped dates/raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans/almonds

Preheat oven to 375.
Mix pureed avocado, and honey until “fluffy”. Add in egg.
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt, then add to the honey mixture. Add in vanilla and mix.
Fold in chocolate chips, dates, and nuts.
Spoon onto lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Keep in mind that honey browns more easily than sugar.
Dang it, looks like I'll be making my daily trip to HEB to pick up an avocado and some honey.  I'm all out.... whah.
