Homemade Soft Pretzels

We have been so busy with the last of the summer fun before school starts. One of the fun things we got to do was go to the new water park: Cowabunga Bay. Jac's old company invited us for a Family/Work party there. Since it was free....we totally went! We had so much fun even though it was very COLD. There is a kiddie pool area that was luke-warm and the water slide water was I heard but never went in myself. Before we left for home Jac bought the big soft pretzels. The kids loved them and were interested in how they were made. So, today I decided to try and make them and thought the kids would have fun also.

Here are the kids helping make the pretzel dough. They are such good helpers!

And of course, the kids enjoying them. They made lots of snake pretzels and had fun playing with them. They turned out pretty well.

That is so ambitious! Your kids are lucky to have you as their mom. Does that picture with the three of them looking at you in the kitchen just melt your heart?! They are growing so fast- hard to believe...

I have a really good recipe for pretzels and you only have to let them raise like 10 minutes so they're really fast to make. Andrew and I make them all the time for snacks. So, if you'd like a quick soft pretzel recipe let me know.
