Our Father’s Day Weekend

We were very lucky to have had Steven be off this weekend. It’s very rare that he gets this opportunity so we pretty much wanted to relax together as a family. 

Friday, since the kids finished school on Thursday, we decided to enjoy or season pass for Sahara SAMs water park. This time we got to enjoy it much more since it wasn’t as jam packed as the first time we went. 



We enjoyed dinner there and let me tell you the pizza and fries were amazing! So if you haven’t gone get to this lovely place I recommend you should go during the week of course to have a nice experience with your kiddies. 

On Sunday was Father’s Day! I made him some home made caramel popcorn. The recipe is as follows: 

Two bags of microwave popcorn

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup light corn syrup Karo brand

1/2 bar of butter

1 tbs salt 

1 tbs vanilla 

1/4 tsp baking soda

Melt the butter, corn syrup and sugar until it gets a nice brown color and a bit thick stirring constantly. 

Mix the rest of ingredients and let simmer on low heat for 5/10 minutes 

You preheat the oven at 300 degrees. Spread the popcorn and drizzle the mixture over top. Flip and drizzle more. Try to get it a bit coated as much as possible.

Bake for 15 mins and stir/flip the popcorn ever 5 minutes. 

This is the beautiful result. 

Found that printable via Pinterest and he really enjoyed it. Now he has some yummy popcorn to munch on while he is in traffic to and from work. 

I hope you enjoyed this blog and recipe. Let me know if you tried it!
