|Officially, today is the last day of school for the boys! Thank goodness, because it was crazy town here this week and today was the icing on the cake for me. I packed up the caramel gooey bars (game change from the marble pound cake request from Max), got everyone to school and then went back to Max's school for the 4th grade pancake breakfast! It was so much fun serving up pancakes to the kids. The teachers actually make them pancakes while the kids watch a movie. We never did anything like that, but it's a tradition at that school. I gotta say, I got sad knowing that I will now have a 5th grader and an 8th grader. I get teary eyed just thinking about it. My boys are getting so big! I love this age though. They are such great boys and they are tons of fun to be around. I can't wait to do things with them this summer! Ok, sorry for the mom talk...
If you're looking for a treat to take to BBQs this weekend, the caramel gooey bars are really simple (better if made the day before) and easy to carry with you! This is my most requested recipe from friends. Seriously though, oats, chocolate, caramel...can you really go wrong with that combination?
I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable long weekend!
