Goldfish in my Jello!

 Pierson and Maylin have a very clever Daddy! Not only is he the best guitar playing, tickler in town but he is also pretty creative. Tired of giving the kids ice cream for a treat he decided to be a little more fun.
Sunday afternoon I woke from my nap 'with' the kids to discover that Daddy and the kids had gone to Wal-Mart to get some groceries. (oops I slept a little longer than I intended) The next thing I know Adam is calling me asking if there was a large glass bowl in the house? "A what?" I said. He said don't worry it is for the kids treat.  ??? OK ???
As it turns out daddy was making a 'fish tank' of jello! He put rocks (otherwise known as grapes) in the bottom. Floated a few pieces of seaweed (parsley) around and after it congealed the kids got to push goldfish crackers down into the 'water'!

 I have to admit. I got a little queasy at the thought of eating soggy fish in my jello but it wasn't bad! And they were easy enough to pick out.
 We did pull out the 'seaweed' before we consumed our fish tank. It was totally for looks.
You can see for yourself that it was a BIG hit with the kids! Daddy is so clever! What a blessing it is to be able to share a bowl a jello with my kids! Family fun which we will cherish for years to come.

i must say...that picture of you pulling the stringy things out of the jello almost made me lose it. it is amazing to me that kids refuse to eat things like bbq chicken but if you let them put goldfish, grapes, and parsley in jello they will eat it....clever :)

I'm impressed Adam! Can't wait to see what creative dessert you come up with next!
We'll be expecting a repeat performance at the beach next summer by the way...
