We are at my parent’s house. It is a tradition for us to come in for the annual Peach and Melon Festival. Tonight was the parade, which is something that my littles look forward to each year. They love looking at the floats, waving to all of the people, and collecting candy. My talented mom made everyone matching shirts, and she made candy bags for the littles.
Even though the parade was at 7 pm and the temperature was still 106 outside, we had a great time. I love the look of pure joy on their faces as they wave to the people in the parade in the hopes that they will throw even more candy. They look so sweet, so innocent, and so incredibly happy. Peace, love, peaches, and watermelons – seriously, those four things should bring a smile to the little in all of us.
As I mentioned yesterday, my mom is doing a great job with our menu. We had to have a healthy meal day to compensate for all of the candy that we knew that the littles would want to eat tonight!
- Breakfast – Cereal, apples, sunflower seed butter
- Lunch – Spaghetti and meat sauce, salad, toast (gluten free bread)
- Dinner – Beef and vegetable soup
- Snack – Bananas, grapes, and cherries
I am sure that there are a million different ways to make beef and vegetable soup, but this is how I do it.
