We started off your birthday morning with a babywearing meeting at the park. Then off to lunch at zpizza. Next up was a ‘surprise place,’ also known as the bike shop, to acquire a very special birthday bike, helmet, gloves, and a bell. After a short ride, it was time [...]
My husband has always loved pumpkin muffins. I was never a fan. One day he asked me to make some, but I don’t generally cook/bake foods that aren’t vegan, the only exception being farm eggs for the boys.
Anyhow, one day I decided to give it a try. Determined to find a vegan version [...]
(Yet another bento post)
Aidan’s top tier: red pepper hummus, sugar snap peas, carrots, pears, pomegranate seeds.
Aidan’s bottom tier: chocolate peanut butter dinosaur sandwiches with kettle corn.
Even though Aidan’s bento wasn’t gorgeous today, I thought I’d share it. He loves his dino sandwiches, even if they aren’t always cut perfectly. He also really loved [...]
I am almost embarrassed to say how much thought I’ve been putting into lunches for the boys lately. I am trying to get as organized and streamlined as I can for our early mornings before we head out to school, but I can’t resist waking up just a little bit earlier to prepare a cute [...]
Aidan’s first bento: sugar snap peas & baby carrots with red pepper hummus for dipping. A dino rice cheese and rabbit shaped apple slice in the bottom tier. (Not shown: couscous with mixed veggies and pine nuts. I stored it in a thermos container and added it later.)
After three years [...]

Avocado in his guacamole for extra moisturizing and shine!
Excuse the color and the blur. Some little [...]
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We certainly did! Yum!
PS. If you are wondering where all the crust to my pie went. Please ask my husband and/or 3 year old.
This year we checked out Blackberries of Houston. These bushes weren’t super tall, but still tall enough that I didn’t have to bend over much if I didn’t want to. There bushes, however, were thornless! It was great to not have to strategically plan my every pick. We will definitely be [...]
Ok, so I kinda slacked on the last half of April. Woops. I had a birthday, so there’s that. We still got outside as much as we could for the great outdoor challenge. Admittedly, I’m sure I missed a couple of days in there somewhere. I joined a gym and the boys are [...]
The first one he’s been interested in actually trying anyhow. Banana, strawberries, peaches, acai, spinach, and a splash of rice milk.
Despite that sour face, he had already had several tastes of it and liked it enough for me to pour some into a cup of his own. He drank more afterwards, too. Silly guy. [...]
