Long Weekend and Mr. Smee

On Thursday evening we opted to avoid cooking to prevent heating up the apartment even more, so we assembled BLTs for dinner.

Friday night Terry attended his high school's football game, so Marshall and I were on our own. I almost never give Marshall his bath because Terry is the Bath Master, so it was extra special and super fun!

Saturday we attended a memorial service, which was really lovely. It included military honors, which I've never had the chance to see, and I thought the ceremony was so touching. We were out most of the day and made it home for dinner and bed for the little guy.

Today we "slept in" by Marshall's standards (6 am!), so we ate pancakes and headed out for a long walk to the farmers' market with our neighbors. But not before making fun of Scout for choosing the most ridiculous lounge spot ever.

 I accidentally dressed Marshall like Mr. Smee.

How cute are these photos Terry took?

 We scored the three bags below for only $5! And the three types of hummus are SO good.

Then we cooled down with smoothies--frozen spinach, frozen berries, yogurt, peanut butter, milk.

Terry and I took advantage of Marshall's nap with some chores and errands, plus Day 2 (yeah, that took a week to get to the second video) of the 30-Day Challenge for Yoga with Adriene. It wasn't too crazy, but I tweaked something in my lower back and have been hobbling around a bit all day.

When Marshall woke up, we took him to the splash park!

He was pretty into it! And thankfully it wasn't too crowded, so we didn't have to worry about big kids trampling him.

Back at home, we made pudding, and Marshall played with the whisk.

We did leftover Greek couscous salad (greens, couscous, feta, cucumber, tomato, red onion, garbanzo beans, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and lemon juice), and then once Marshall went to bed we prepped some food for the week: grilled peppers and onions for lunches (to wrap up in pita with hummus) and this recipe for overnight slow cooker oats to enjoy for breakfasts.

Meal plan for the week:
 - Ina's risotto with grilled chicken and green beans
- soup of some sort
- lots of leftovers :-)

Workouts should be better this week because we're allegedly heading toward some cooler weather. Maybe a jog or two to celebrate? Hopefully more success with the 30 Day Yoga Challenge?

Happy start of the week to you! I hope it's a great one!
