Summertime with the 3-5 year old crew is FUN. We’re beyond needing naps (mostly), bedtimes can be stretched far beyond the usual, the sleep ins are amazing and trips to the farm (not ours…ours is currently under renovation) are a must. We’re busy celebrating the last month of summer and taking it very seriously by checking off the summer must-do’s three times over.
Trips to visit the ponies…
The ice cream dates with my little men…
The ducks with fluffy hair do’s…
The worm and slug hunting adventures….
The weekend trips to the rocky mountains…
And just really REALLY trying to enjoy ourselves before we get back into the grind of proper bedtimes and not eating ice cream for dinner.
This summer, my little Ethan wanted to wear his Zutano Fishies Camp shirt. for every outing. It’s his absolute favorite, as in smiles ear to ear when he puts it on, “look at my fancy fishie shirt!!!” sort of favorite. He looks adorable in it with matching shorts and a little superhero mask which now lives in my purse because you never know when you need to whip out your superMOM mask and entertain a 3 year old, right?
It would be perfect on this smiley goat, but we can never get close enough to get her to try on our superhero mask without her trying to headbutt us. Not that we’d ever really try to put a superhero mask on a goat or anything. I mean, who does that…*ahem*.
Zutano has perfect little boy prints in really comfortable, great quality clothes that move at the speed my little guys do. They wash and wear so well and still manage to stay soft from my big boy to little boy. After 24 years of making children’s clothes, Zutano has it down to a fine art.
But back to the goat. And goat cheese. Definitely one of my favorite treats on the weekend. Goat cheese with some nice crackers and a glass of wine? Blissful. And it’s also super healthy for my boys too. (The cheese, not the wine).
Vermont Creamery sent us a beautiful package full of their artisan goat cheeses that was devoured within a day!
+ Lower in fat and calories than cow’s milk cheese. Cow’s milk cheese typically has about 100 calories and 10 grams of fat per ounce, while goat cheese has 80 calories and 6 grams of fat per ounce.
+ High in calcium and protein. Once ounce of goat cheese delivers 4% the daily recommended value of calcium and 5-7 grams of protein.
+ Nutrient dense food. Goat cheese is rich in vitamins and minerals including Vitamin A, Riboflavin, and Phosphorus
+ Less allergenic. Goat milk contains only minute amounts of casein, the allergenic protein found in cow’s milk, and is naturally gluten free.
+ Easy to digest. The fat globules in goat’s milk are smaller and do not cluster together, making goat milk products easy to digest, even for kids with lactose intolerance.
+ No additives, preservatives or bovine growth hormones are used in any of our goat cheese products.
+ Mild taste and versatility for picky eaters.
