Scenes From Our Memorial Monday

What a great weekend! I disconnected a bit and just hung out with the family. Friday we did dinner. Saturday we froze at our pool’s opening party. Yesterday was the Memorial Day Murph at the gym. Today it was just me and the boys.

We started off in the kitchen, of course.

I have a new helper!


We made a batch of banana oatmeal cups, a family favorite.


This time we decided to have a little fun adding the batter to our doughnut pan.


They came out great!

After breakfast a little house dancing with props.


Little Bean hasn’t quite learned our Wipeout routine yet. :)

Once  The Husband woke up, I got ready for the first of my #RWRunStreak runs. I asked The 7-Year-Old to take a photo but he was too busy playing with Legos. Self portrait it is then!


3 miles and 30 minutes later I came home to a Lego-fest.


The rest of the morning was spent in the yard.




The boys went with hot dogs but I made My Certosa-Inspired Cabbage Salad with a half a head of cabbage that was aging in the fridge.

After lunch we all freshened up while The Toddler napped and then headed out to run some errands with a pit stop at the mall.

We came back with gas for the grill, sand for the box,


…and plants for my container garden.


Irish was unimpressed by it all.


For dinner I made a London broil on the grill with baked potatoes, a kale salad,


…corn on the cob, 20130527_M

…and watermelon for dessert!


It was a great dinner but BOY did we make a mess.


We cleaned up and settled in for night.

Now I’m catching up on this whole ridiculous mermaid story because there’s nothing else on TV. I should just go to bed to avoid the mindless SNACKS! You know what, I’m going to do that. :)

I hope you had a great holiday weekend!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Isn’t it great to have an extra day off! :)

      YES! I wish were were able to do it more often. :)

    I’ve seen the Mermaid “documentary” (and I use that term loosely)….could they have made things any faker???
