The Ants Go Marching Two By Two

Look what made their way into our home last week:

Wonder what they're after. . .

What's this? They found cupcakes?

I'm scared for the cupcakes.

Ants on cupcakes.
There's something you don't see every day.
Unless you're at a picnic.
Poor cupcakes.

Actually, we were at a picnic on Friday. Caleb's end-of-the-school-year Preschool Picnic.
We decided to take the ant-covered cupcakes with us.
And contrary to what one poor kid thought, they were completely edible.
The cupcakes AND the ants. :)

See? Chocolate and Junior Mint ants, chillin' in the fridge.

Cupcakes waiting to be frosted.
Caleb helped make them.
He loves to help in the kitchen these days. I can't pull out a mixing bowl
without him running for a kitchen chair and calling out "Helpin'! Helpin!"
Melts my mommy heart every time.
So he stands on his chair, cracks eggs, pours milk, gets flour everywhere, stirs with a big spoon,
and licks the beaters when we're done.
And while we're quite messy by then, we're also quite happy.

As for the ant cupcakes?
They were a big hit at the picnic. :)
Except for the one kid who thought the ants were real.
He refused to eat the cupcake, even after a kind teacher lady removed the offending insect.
Poor kiddo. I felt bad.
Then I ate a cupcake. And I felt better. :)
