Wednesday Linky! *Plus Some Vacation Pics*

We Welcome You To The 4th Of July Wordless Wednesday where this week we are featuring Independence Day entries from this months parties, hope you enjoy!!


As some of you may know, I'm in the Netherlands right now. On Sunday, we found these awesome stairs to climb, only, I was unable because there was no way I was going to carry Jakob in the stroller and I didn't bring my chest carrier. But the rest of the family walked to the top, while I got to spend some time with Jake taking fun pictures. He has such a fun personality & I think these pictures really capture him well (& he's wearing red, white & blue)!

Exploring the Castle TerWorm, Netherlands


It was our first full day in the Netherlands and we visited a few different spots around where we are staying. Our first stop was at a castle turned hotel and restaurant, the Kasteel TerWorm in Heerlen. I'm telling you, this place is so serene. It is very green and the small forest around it had the loudest chirping birds singing for everyone while was strolled around the garden and fountains. 
This Castle was built in 1787 and turned into a hotel in 2003. My husband has stayed in this hotel many times and raves about the outdoor restaurant and bar. We didn't stay to eat because someone *cough, my 13 month old crazy child, can't do restaurants anymore. 

Speaking of crazy babies, the flight over to Europe from Los Angeles was quite eventful. My son, my sweet baby, was awful! Like, I never want to fly again awful. I've flown alone many times to Europe with infants, toddlers and older children and never experienced what I did on Friday. I'm telling you, I was that mom... you know, the one who looks like her head is going to explode because she is trying so hard to keep calm in front of all the strangers she is sitting with. Yeah, that was me. With the screaming one year old in the middle of an 11 hour flight, trying oh so desperately to get him to sleep when all he really wants to do is downward dog in the middle of the aisle. It was fun.
And on top of that, my older two, the two with whom I have NEVER had issues with while flying, kept fighting with each other. Once the lights went out and everyone fell asleep, life got much easier for this momma. But hey, we made it safe and are having a blast. I swear though, he better shape up over the next 6 weeks before we have to fly home or else I will probably lose it for sure ha! 

Have a wonderful day and more from the Netherlands tomorrow!

Lemonade Vanilla Yogurt Ice Pops


This is a summer recipe the whole family will love, especially the kids! I enjoy a nice glass of lemonade but really don't like how sweet store bought lemonade can be. I'm not a fan of sweet juices and have been making my own lemonade with agave for a while now. That way I feel like I'm getting the benefits of lemon juice without all the extra sugar. 

These ice pops have the perfect mix of sweet from the vanilla yogurt and a bit of sour from the lemonade. They are perfect for a cool snack on a hot summer day.

Ingredients
  • Ice pop/popsicle mold
  • 6 oz low fat vanilla yogurt {I used Light & Fit}
  • 1/4 cup organic lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp agave
  • 3/4 cups water


Directions:
  • Fill each popsicle mold half way full with vanilla yogurt
  • In a mixing bowl or measuring cup, mix lemon juice, agave and water until blended
  • Add lemonade on top of the yogurt {without mixing} to the top of the mold
  • Apply the sticks and pop in the freezer
  • Let freeze for about 5 hours, take out and Enjoy!
