"Are we going to make Spiderman Candy Apples, Aunt Chelsea?"
I mean, what would you say to a 4 year old boy in his Batman costume? This was a special request while we were on vacation. My sister sent me this video a few weeks before vacation so I was happy to pack a few extra items to make the candy apples. You have to watch the video - such a fun one to watch with the kiddos.

I took advantage of our vacation time to bake a few treats, including these Cinnamon Roll Cookie Bars. I'm a pretty big fan of Cinnamon Rolls anyway so when I saw my fav in a bar WITH cream cheese frosting it had to happen.
I loved these bars. We kept them in the refrigerator because of the cream cheese frosting and I really liked them chilled. The bar is not overly sweet so the frosting make it a perfect treat.

While we were on vacation at the lake we all took turns making the meals. I picked breakfast meals because that's hands down the best meal of the day, duh. These Blueberry Lemon Pancakes were a perfect breakfast before a day on the lake.
I love how much they plumped up giving a nice and fluffy pancake. They are packed with blueberries and the lemon just adds a little freshness, it's not super strong. I did double the below recipe so we'd have more than enough for 7 people with a few leftovers.
I will definitely make these again!
