I made cookies for my son today (and my husband). Sam loves chocolate chip cookies, mom's cookies. He likes them best when I make them from scratch but I didn't feel like going to that much trouble. So I made them the easy way.
Here's the easy chocolate chip cookie recipe:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1 box of yellow cake mix (any brand)
2 eggs
1/2 c oil (i find that this really is too much so just don't fill your measuring cup completely full)
chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Spoon out cookie dough on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 min.
You can use any flavor of cake mix and any flavor of chips. ex: chocolate cake mix & peanut butter chips.
These cookies are yummy!

Here are more of our vacation pics
Don and Sam hiked up Angel's Landing in Zion National Park. I decided I couldn't do it because as you see it was a straight drop off at the top and I couldn't have gotten there due to my fear of heights. But Don and Sam made it and they were very proud of their accomplishment.
