funfetti cookie cake mix toddler cooking

Last week was a big week for Beck. He switched schools – leaving the daycare he’d attended since he was a baby to attend one closer to our home and work. So how do you celebrate such a big event? With Beck’s favorite activities – bike riding and cookie baking!
