Welcome to Cafe Jackson

Right this way

Have a seat. Please feel free to play with toys while you wait and be sure to visit with your lovely table companion.

Are you ready to order?

Jackson asked if we could "have a restaurant" today. He was inspired by the Cafe Blue episode of Blue's Clues. I had just read this post on SouleMama and loved how she went all in on the project. So, when he asked, I thought, "Why not?". (Our little project in no way compares to their's, though!)

We cut out pictures from magazines for the menu - they also determined the menu. When Derek came home for lunch, he was served:

Appetizer - raw carrots with almonds

Main course - scrambled eggs with cheese, toast (sweet potato, orange, raisin bread -yum!) with peanut butter

Dessert - vanilla ice cream
You know you're going to make that for dinner tonight.

  6. insainly cute! I love it! OH man, my boy would love to play rest. with Jackson. For months we had an empty Pizza Hut personal pan pizza box that they played Pizza Place with. Sometimes outside, including their PowerWheels jeep and the playhouse. LOL

  7. You did a great job on the bow tie!! I would not have known that it was not store bought if you had not told me.

  8. Can't wait to do this kind of stuff with Vin! I'm so impressed that you had magazines with the same pictures as what you had in the cupboard. Very clever Miss Wendy.

  9. Kam - purely luck, I assure you!

    And thanks everyone for all of the sweet comments!
