Caroline Times Two

My 11-year-old cousin Caroline has been in town, and we have been having the best time! We visited the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, where we learned all about Texas, and where we saw an IMAX movie about an African Safari. We also saw "Muppets Take Manhattan" at the Alamo Drafthouse. We made turtle brownies and cookies that we dipped in caramel and chocolate.
And - we volunteered at the Sunshine Camps, which is part of the group I help tutor during the school year. We helped by running the face painting booth at "Carnival Night" and by taking kids out on canoes on Town Lake on "Canoe Night." We got quite good at painting faces, even though it was our first time, and between water guns, paddles, and seaweed fights, we got really, really wet canoeing. What a busy, fun week!

Sounds like a fun time. . .but why would you want to dip perfectly yummy brownies into caramel !

Kind of like putting cake into perfectly good vanilla ice cream.

Presentation, my friend.
But, it was the cookies that were dipped in caramel.

Hmmm, okay, that sounds a little less like dessert sacrilege.
