Meal Plan Week #21

Happy President's Day!

Also known as George Washington's birthday.
AKA: So happy it's a federal holiday and Morgan gets another day off. 😄

There were no particular stand out meals from last week so in honor of President's Day, I thought I'd share some pictures from our trip to Mount Vernon (George & Martha's home) back in 2012. We stopped here from Colonial Williamsburg on our way to Washington D.C. and I'm so glad we did!
It was truly the most fascinating thing ever!
Such a huge part of history that I will never forget.

The first family. Lol!

Look how little the girls were? They were six!

The tomb of George & Martha Washington.
The engraved scripture on top reads, "I am the Resurrection and the Life, Jesus said... he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." -John 11:25

What an experience! The girls still remember our trip and we talk about it from time to time. In fact, Lord willing, we hope to go back and do the whole thing over again when Zach gets a little older.

Ok, here's what's on the menu this week...

Meal Plan Week #21
  • Mexican Enchilada Casserole
  • Tomato Basil Artichoke Chicken
  • Turkey Chili with Cornbread Waffles
  • Lemon Chicken Tortellini Soup
  • BBQ Meatballs

Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival

 First thing's first. The girls were so excited to check out the Junior Exhibit Hall to see if their artwork won anything. Yay! First & second place! Good job, girls!

Faith's cat was also submitted and won second place.


My big girls.

 This is by far, the best ride at the fair. Too bad Zach was too small for it. Soon, buddy!

  More his speed anyway.


Love them.

His first Ferris Wheel.

The gang's all here!

Fun house with sissies.

Love my men!

 He rode the "ATV" 4 times.

Our hometown fair has arrived and we pretty much conquered it in one day. We took advantage of free-admission on the first day so we could instead, spend our money on unlimited rides for the kids. The weather was kind of crazy. It was cloudy, windy, dusty, and cold... but unlike most years, thankfully, it wasn't brutally HOT! We had a great time and came home thoroughly exhausted.

We love our family tradition of going to the fair!
