Menu Monday

Well, another weekend is in the books, and another week is upon us.  I can officially say that my countdown to Spring Break is on - 5 weeks and counting!  Until then, we will continue loving this gorgeous weather and all that the outside has to offer until it gets too, too hot.
This past Saturday we were super busy all.day.long.  Mike was busy helping facilitate and put on the 15th Annual Orlando Wetlands Festival at Fort Christmas Historical Park.  He was up and at ‘em before the sun was up and then E and I went to visit and check out the shenanigans later on.  The festival was packed, as usual, and the vendors were great as well.
Everett got to touch an alligator and a rat snake (yuck), got to see a bald eagle up close and of course play on the playground.  He had a blast and I was pretty proud of my guy for helping out with such a great event.



After the festival we headed directly to Jenny and Jeremy’s house to celebrate Carson’s 1st Birthday!  The house was full of family, friends and love – and the birthday boy couldn’t have been any cuter.  E had a great time playing his heart out with all of his old and new buddies and needless to say, he slept in the next morning (yay for us!).  He was pooped.

Turning 1 is hard work!

This week is the norm, followed by another weekend of funsies.  Gransie is headed down to watch E while Mike and I head to Merritt Island with friends to attend a baby shower for some soon-to-be newbie parents.  We can’t wait to celebrate with them and I know Gransie can’t wait to get some loving from her little dude.  As for food, we are keeping it low key and loaded with some of our favorite dishes.  Enjoy!

M:  Spaghetti and (Turkey) Meatballs
T:  Pulled Pork Fried Rice (combining two of my faves)
W:  Chicken Gyros w/ Tzatzki and Roasted Veggies

Have a happy week!
