Challenge: Things That Make You Smile

This Cocoa Daisy challenge was issued by Stephanie and the hardest part was narrowing down the choices. After all, there are so many things that make me smile. I finally decided on these photos of P. and her coconut. She's always had an obsession with coconuts (and eyeballs) and she was begging me to buy her a real coconut to taste. P. has such a fun imagination - she wanted to name her coconut and decided on Adobo because she loves to say it. Thanks to a You Tube video, we learned how to find the soft eye of the nut so we could drain it and taste the juice. We then baked, cracked, and ate Adobo. Sad, I know. Here is my take on the challenge...
Such a fun memory! I thought the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline paper was perfect for the challenge. I still have some fun pics left of Adobo - this may turn into a 2-pager. :) Thanks for stopping by!
