I am running about a week behind, but I just had to share these pictures from LAST weekend!We didn't have Lily, unfortunately, but we couldn't pass up a chance to get outside and enjoy the weather.
We spent a lot of time outside, but our favorite was the park!
Ava Grace absolutely LOVES being outside. She had a blast on the swings and would have stayed there all day!
(Yellin' for Daddy)
But, she didn't complain too much when we were done with swinging, because that meant exploring! Grass, rocks, sticks, tree bark - oh my! The world is full of treasures!
(Waving at Daddy)
One of the things we enjoy so much about the area where we live is it's proximity to the lake!
One of the things we enjoy about this particular park is that the playground is only a few yards from the water!
So our play day at the park also turned into Ava Grace's first fishing trip. She pretty much just loved it!
Chris caught a couple different kinds of fish for her to see and touch. That was lots of fun.
(FYI, there was no hook on the fishing pole when she had it!)
After fishing and exploring for a while, it was time to head back to the car and nap time for this sleepy girl!
But as we walked past the swings Ava Grace decided a detour was not suggested, but necessary!
So.... we did a little more swinging before we left!
It was the perfect day at the park! I can't wait to go back!!!
Now... it's also Menu Monday! If you didn't notice something unusual about our menu last week, I'll go ahead and point it out! We are doing a low carb thing right now! We both could stand to trim down a bit and Lily is a carb-a-holic, so we figure it's good for all of us! We haven't totally cut carbs from the girls diet, just cutting out the noodles and potatoes and white breads for a while for them and focusing a lot more on fresh fruits and veggies... which we all actually love! Chris and I have gone a little more drastic and are trying to stay between 20-50 net carbs a day. It's actually going really well and after one full week of no cheating, I think we are adjusting to it quite well! Sooo.... without further explanation, here is our menu this week:
Grilled Italian Burgers (bunless) with Zucchini fries.
Parmesan crusted chicken tenders and steamed veggies
Grilled Chicken, squash, and steamed broccoli
Stir Fry Veggies and beef or chicken (not sure yet)
