Ghiradelli Chocolate Chip Cookies

We had a nice day today.   We all went to BJ's for some shopping, got haircuts for the kids and went out to a local pub for a burger.

My sister-in-law, brother-in-law and niece came over for a bit in the evening.  They have bestowed us with THIS!

A huge VW tent!  The kids are psyched.

I bought a bag of Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips at BJ's and made these cookies for everyone.  They went pretty quick, so I think they were good!
