Here in hot and humid North Carolina we have been taking full advantage of the pool we put in last summer. After all the destruction and drama associated with it’s construction it’s proved its worth this year.
Pretty much any day of the week you can find all three boys (and my husband as well) playing and splashing in it. Since we’re outside so much we’ve been also treating ourselves to lots of cool treats. For a while I was making my own popsicles but it was hard to keep up with the demand and the boys were getitng bored with them. Luckily for them I found Outshine Fruit Bars at the grocery store recently and our family has converted!
The bars are made with real fruit and fruit juice so I don’t feel bad if the boys have one (or two!) on a sweltering afternoon. They have a ton of flavors too, including seasonal special edition flavors like their soon to be released Blood Orange and Grapefruit bars!
Right now we have three boxes in our freezer-Strawberry, Acai Blueberry, and a sugar free variety pack made with Splenda that is my personal favorite. It’s nice to have a no guilt, low calorie snack option on hand when I get “snacky” at night too! (I know I’m not the only nighttime snacker out there, right?!)
