2016 Week 30

This dude had an amazing week!
He swam in prelims for swim team and made it to finals in 2 individual events.
Then, he swam his two events plus two relays on Saturday.
His team placed 3rd in their league, which is unprecedented.
Such a fun (but exhausting) weekend.
Now I'm looking forward to a relaxed week of fun.

Sunday - Grilled fish and salads, with fruit.
Monday - Tacos and cantaloupe. 
Tuesday - Easy dinner at the ballpark while Scott plays softball.
Wednesday - Summer veggies and pasta.
Thursday - Tamales from the farmers market.
Friday - Pizza and a movie night.

2016 Week 28

It was a busy week!
We finally broke down and bought a minivan.
It was the best decision we've made in a while!!
 The utter silence of happy kids in the car is priceless somedays!

We spent Sunday morning celebrating my mom and sister's birthday
on the Platt river. 
Picnics by the water might be the best way to spend a Sunday.

And we are still loving on our funny kitten!

And now it's another fun week ahead of us.
Dinners this week:
Sunday - Spaghetti with veggies.
Monday - Dinner out with my dad.
Tuesday - Family swim night with pizza at the swim team pool.
Wednesday - Easy summer salad and ravioli.
Thursday - Burrito bowls with beans, rice, veggies.
Friday - Dinner in the woods, while camping. 
Saturday - Dinner at the cabin, yay!
