Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Cookies

This week is spring break for us. So normally people have this excellent plan to go to the beach, maybe camping? Yeah, not us. We just never have been big on spring break trips. Why? Because EVERYONE else goes! I mean really, who wants to be in the same crowd as everyone else? We don't! We even prefer camping when campgrounds are close to empty. Ok, maybe about five other people there. But we just prefer to be by ourselves. I know, good job on being social Ashleigh! The bad thing about that, I feel like Dawson is ok with being around people. He loves having something to do. ALL the dang time. Where I am perfectly ok with designing, cleaning, pinteresting, doing laundry, making lists of things I won't do. But since we decided to have a kid, I guess it is probably in our best interest to show him we do love doing things with him. 

So far, though, Dawson and I have done nothing for spring break. Well, we went to my grandmother's house, but I do that every week. We are only two days in, and so far, Dawson has jumped and splashed in some water (it rained hard here). We went for a walk (running, I about died). He cleaned his room. O and we made cookies! 


Dawson is getting the hang of being in the kitchen. He is even making his recipes too. Which of course is awesome to me, since I love being in the kitchen. Soon, I will post his PB Balls he made up himself. They lasted a day here at our house. They were that good! 

We make these cookies that have no flour in them. THE. BEST. COOKIES. EVER! They are so stinking good!
