Baking Day- Snickerdoodle Bars

Saturday, finally! This week has seemed to tick by, and I was so thrilled to wake up this morning and not have to walk to the train in the rain... APRIL SHOWERS is definitely true this spring. It has rained everyday for the past week! Oh, well! At least we didn't get snow :)

Last Saturday Kira came over for our 3rd baking day. We had so much fun! We made Snickerdoodle bars and S'mores bars. I can't believe how adorable Kira is. She talks a mile a minute and has the best stories. She's so much fun and such a great little baker!
