The Weekend Lens


We had a wonderful weekend of celebrating the freedom we are privileged to enjoy as citizens of the United States of America and wishing our great country a Happy Birthday!

The weekend started out with Keith taking the girls to the zoo in Kansas City and then going to pick up his race packet for the 4 on the 4th Race he was running in on the 4th of July.

Keith had a great race on Saturday morning! This has become a 4th of July tradition for him. The kids and I cheered him on from home.

We had a great 4th of July celebration with a relaxing day at home, watching the National Hot Dog eating contest and a baseball game, enjoying a patriotic dinner complete with red, white and blueberry kabobs and homemade ice cream, and then going to see the fireworks display on post with neighbors.

We were so wiped out from being out late on Saturday that yesterday was spent resting and recovering. We are not late night people…at all.

Menu Plan Week of July 5, 2015


In an effort to try to get my act together again, I’m going to start posting my menu plans for the week on Sundays.

This has always been a great way for me to be accountable for planning our meals and a fun way to share what we’re eating.

I recently began using Plan to Eat for planning our weekly dinner meals and creating a shopping list. It has made meal planning and shopping list creating so much easier!!!

Here’s what’s on our menu for this week!

Sunday – Double Stuffed Broccoli and Cheese Baked Potatoes (EA is making this from her Delicious Disney Just for Kids Cookbook)

Monday – BLT Sandwiches; Fruit; Chips

TuesdayCrock Pot Pineapple Chicken over Rice; Steamed Vegetables

Wednesday – Grilled Chicken Salad

ThursdaySlow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches; Baked Fries

Friday – open

What’s on your menu for this week?
