Easy and Healthy Menu Plan and Goals

A week filled with World Series watching (well, I’ve only watched partial games but my husband is a huge Royals fan so every game has been on), a day trip to the zoo, a concert, and regular life made the last 7 days fly by and left not a lot of time for extra projects.

Regular life takes up a lot of time when the boy child is a human tornado. Every thing he touches is destroyed. 🙂 We need to do better about staying on top of keeping doors closed. He even managed to get toilet paper inside the toilet bowl. . .

It was our first zoo trip in over a year – both kids loved it! The 17 month old was entranced and kept pointing and saying “wow”. The aquarium, elephants, and rhinoceros were the highlights. It’s always fun when the animals are active and playing.

    Woah! Sounds like a busy week. I’m glad they liked the zoo – and that bathroom picture is hysterical!

      They both really liked the zoo!!! It would have been perfect if it was 5-10 degrees cooler. In the middle of the afternoon I was wondering how I survive the summer months. Yeah, real funny. 🙂 He’s a goob. He can’t get the lid all the way up so I think he’d partially get it up with one hand while attempting to shove toilet paper in with the other. . . He’s a child of destruction to say the least.
      (And congrats on being the first family member to ever comment!!! I was excited when I saw it was you. 🙂 )

        Hm, I wonder what his personality will be like in a few years!! Yay! I’m shocked that no one else has ever commented though – I feel honored!
