RECIPE :: Clean Eating Caramel Corn

Happy 4th of July!
We spent the majority of our day at home, doing our chores.  We split and stacked quite a bit of wood, and worked on getting more of our bathroom remodel finished, laundry, blah blah blah....normal daily stuff.
The kids took a crazy awesome nap! 3 hours!  That's unheard of these days...and it was perfect! They slept until about 6:30, we had supper and THEN....we went to the fairgrounds for festivities and fireworks!
The kiddos got to ride a pony, which is probably what they are most excited about!
After we got to the fairgrounds they announced that the fireworks were not going to start until 11pm, versus the 10pm time they had announced on their website.  Seriously?  Not keeping these kids up until midnight!  
So, we packed up after our pony ride and headed back to Farot Park in Lima, where they were also doing fireworks.  We got a perfect spot on  hill just outside of town, set up our chairs and blankets and snacked on our homemade Caramel Corn! (recipe below!)
We've had a great weekend, and still have a couple trips planned to the park to play and ride our bikes.  It's fun to have weekends with "no plans" and "nothing to do" so you can just fly by the seat of your pants!  We've managed to get a lot of great family time in, and that is most important!
