This Sunday started with an 8K run through The Maryland Zoo
It’s called the Zoo Zoom. There were critters at the start…
and the last mile we ran through the zoo. I HAD to stop and take a picture of the Chimpanzees.
It was so early all the animals were out and about.
I came home to two hungry boys and made myself a smoothie.
I know it’s weird, but after a long run I’m never in the mood to eat. My latest smoothie creation is 1/2 banana, kale, frozen blueberries, protein powder, dark cocoa powder and almond milk. UPDATE: Click here for the recipe and a video post of how to make this smoothie.
We drew while eating (drinking) our breakfasts.
Then danced while we cleaned up.
Our chore for the day: Clean out and organize the mudroom.
It’s been so unorganized we just throw our coats on the floor. Yes. That bad.
Within minutes I lose my cleaning partner.
But it was all good. The brothers are bonding.
What’s the saying? It’s gotta get worse before it gets better?
Little Bean went to nap and Little Guy hit the Legos while I finished.
Then we had the big reveal.
The boys split half an avocado. A quesadilla for Big Brother and Banana Blueberry "Pudding" for Little Bean.
I plan on making that our next Baby Food Adventure.
I made myself some Bulgur with Peas and Pomegranate…
It’s been awhile. I forgot how good it was! Click here for the recipe.
After lunch the boys and I hit the park.
It was so warm I was able to wear my birks.
I hope it stays mild like this for a little longer. I’m loving it!
We got back from the park just in time for me to leave for my date. I met an old friend at the movies. We found a late run theater that shows matinees for $3. That’s THREE DOLLARS. How awesome! We saw The Help and it was A-mazing! I laughed. I cried. Definitely a must see.
I got back to hungry boys AGAIN…
Actually, only 2 hungry boys. The Husband fed the baby. He can handle opening a jar of baby food, but that’s about it. ;)
I was planning on making Tacos but they convinced me to pick up KFC on the way home from the movie and honestly, I was relieved. I’m not sure I had the energy to cook dinner.
Our KFC meal of choice: a 10 Piece bucket with mashed potatoes and baked beans. I get some grilled for me and the rest original for them.
Then my day ended like this…
Ok, MUST go. I’m literally falling asleep at my computer, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. This Sensational Sunday was a success!
