I decided it would be fun to involve the kids in dinner preparation one evening. Carter loves to help do anything in the kitchen and Kennedy is happy to do anything that Carter is doing. So I figured making homemade pizza together would be a simple dinner to prepare together (no stove, no sharp knives, etc.). Boy, did we have fun. Carter loved having a hand in each step of the process and was so excited to show Daddy our dinner when he got home. It was a little messy and the pizza was definitely not as good as if we had gone to a restaurant, but the experience was what we were after and we had a great time!
As we sat down to eat our meal, Carter proclaims, "I'd like to be a pizza maker when I get big. That and a football player of course." Dream big, my boy.
Rolling the dough

Preparing the dough, rolling the crust just so.

Spreading the sauce

Sprinkling the cheese

Adding the toppings. Take notice of Kennedy off to the side, stuffing her mouth full of cheese. She couldn't get it in there fast enough!
