But anyway, on to the weekend recap!
Saturday morning we laid around, watched TV and relaxed! I worked on some 31 stuff and caught up on some of my favorite blogs while the kids watched Ratatouille. Then in the afternoon we headed out to the Times Union Center to go to Discovering the Dinosaurs. The kids had a good time checking out the dinosaur exhibits, unearthing dinosaur bones, and most especially, jumping in the bounce houses. Again and again and again. After they had jumped themselves silly, we headed out to dinner at Red Lobster. Yes, I hate seafood. But I love those cheddar biscuits! And they usually have some good chicken options so it's all good. :) The plan for the evening was to watch a movie with the hubs. Instead we watched 1 episode of The Brink and fell asleep on the couch. #parenthood
Sunday was one of those glorious days spent cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping. #momlife I do feel accomplished though because I actually made a meal plan for the week and even got some meal prep done! Dinner was cajun chicken stuffed with spinach and pepper jack cheese and a tossed salad with fresh tomatoes and peppers from my dad's garden. I also made 2 delicious loaves of double chocolate zucchini bread (thanks to dad again for the zucchini). Fresh garden veggies are definitely one of my favorite parts of summer! We asked the kids if they wanted to go for a bike ride or the playground, but they preferred to chase each other around and around and around the house, ocassionally taking breaks to play the Kindle or Ipad. And despite my vow to get outside more, it was so hot and humid that I was honestly fine just hanging out in the house.

In other news, on my way home from grocery shopping this morning I stopped at Dunkin Donuts for coffee. The girl working the drive thru asked me if I wanted to try a pumpkin muffin! Like I said, I love fall but can we at least wait till Labor Day to break out all things pumpkin??
I hope you all had a great weekend and your new week is off to a great start! Enjoy these last bits of summer friends! It's going to be hot and humid in NY (not like Phoenix hot...117?? Holy cow!), but hot for these parts with heat indexes around 97-98. Stay cool and hydrated!
