and family pictures because she loves her family:)
packing these babies is not one of my favorite things to do.i think that's why i'm always on the hunt for cute containers and goodies to add inside.
anything to make this daily task more enjoyable.
the girls love getting notes and jokes in their lunchboxes too.
there are tons of links out there for free printable ones.
here are some of my favorites:
we made smoothies almost every day this summer.
they were the perfect mid morning snack.
this year i am going to try and make them each morning for breakfast.
i think it's the perfect way to get riley to eat bananas and janey to eat raspberries and blueberries all at the same time:)
after drop off the three of us headed to panera and meijer/sams to grocery shop.
it seems likes it's been a looooong time since we have enjoyed this slow simple time together.
checkout these adorable containers we found today.
i could not resist their overwhelming cuteness.
they should add a little pizazz to tomorrows lunch.:)
of course we had to ride sandy the horse with our free cookie in hand lots and lots of times while daddy checked out.
both parking lots we visited today had just been resurfaced.
what are the odds of that?!?
that meant lots and lots of trips balancing up and down those freshly painted bright yellow lines.
dave gave me the sweetest compliment after we got in the car at sams...after i had walked behind aubrey at least 4 times while she walked up and down those lines...he told me i was so patient with her...that he probably would have rushed her along into the car...that felt really good.
we were going to go out for lunch but after the hustle and bustle of the weekend and the morning we decided to just stay in and have takeout.
it was the perfect first monday of the school year.
hope your monday was perfect too.
have a happy day,
