First, an apology. We've been a bit AWOL this week. Sorry!
I would have told you earlier that we were going on vacation, but then I'd have to endure a lecture from the kids about how we shouldn't write anything online about being out of town. And let's face it, with five of us crammed into a Prius for an eight hour drive down to Florida the last thing I needed was a lecture from the kids!
We had a blast visiting Nana and Papa. We met our new(ish) cousin William. What a cutie!
We made some really cool bracelets ...
(Want one? Leave me a message with an order and Miranda will get our little sweatshop working! Seriously, she's already taken 8 orders.)
We also visited the Wild Music exhibit and the Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History (so cool!) and an Urgent Care Clinic for a wicked case of poison oak (mine - very not cool! I won't gross you out with the photos).
8 hours down, 4 days visiting, 2 hours in the mall shopping for school clothes (whew!), 1 hour in a tattoo parlor (priceless!), 8 hours back, and 10 prednisones later .... and we're finally back in 'Bama gearing up for a week of work and school registration.
We're keeping the Meal Plan pretty simple:
Sunday - Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas
Monday - Warm Chicken with Green Beans and Chard
Tuesday – Veggie Lasagna from the freezer
Wednesday – "Olivia's World of Food: Kenya" – Ugali (Cornmeal porridge – national dish) and vegetable Curry
Thursday - Bunny's Farmstand Tacos
What's cooking in your house this week?
