Chocolate Animal Crackers {Alphabet Summer Letter C}

Chocolate, cheese, cookies, crackers, cars, campfire.

Did you notice all those words started with the letter c?  I’m sure you did…you are so smart.  It just so happens to be “C” week during our Alphabet Summer Series and I have seen my share of each one the things mentioned above during the last couple of days.

We just got back from “camping” in a beautiful cabin at Bear Lake known as the Caribbean of the Rockies.  How’s that for a cool vacation!?  And, while I’d like to say I totally planned “c week” all around our vacation, I have to be honest and say I just got lucky.

Lucky or not, I could go for some more vacation.  But alas, all good things must come to an end but the “C” celebration doesn’t have to!

And now that we don’t have Grandma or Grandpa or cousins or aunts or uncles to entertain our children while we lay back in a lounge chair to veg it’s up to me.  Again.

Cookies, or crackers as the case may be, are always a surefire way to beat the post vacation blues.  Even for Mommy.


Last week we celebrated Letter T with Thunder Cake and be sure to visit Alphabet Summer Kits for a great guide on how to beat the summertime blues!
