We had a packed weekend. Friday we all took part in the Relay for Life, raising funds for the American Cancer Society. The LJWC enters a team every year, and this year I walked as a survivor. Surreal. This is a real family event, and all our team members brought their families this year, so it was one big playdate! We tried to stay all night this time, but Ben woke up around 1:30 am and couldn’t get back to sleep, so we packed up and headed to our comfy beds. Somehow we managed not to take any pictures,  but rest assured it was a fun evening.

Saturday morning started with Will’s tee-ball game. 10:30 am sure rolls around early when you’ve been out til 1:30 the night before! But, we managed to show up for half the game, and we had another beautiful day for it.

After a much needed break, we headed to the Lemont Heritage Fest for the afternoon. We caught some live music (go Sara!), the boys cooled off with (very colorful) snowcones:

I bit the  bullet this year and let them try the crazy Euro Bungee jumper thing:

Then we hit the facepainting table:

Sunday involved another tee-ball game (did I mention we’ve been rained out a lot this year?), and that was about all the excitement we could handle.

Back to reality, here’s what we’ll be having for dinner this week:

M: Canneloni and salad (didn’t make it Saturday since we ate at the Fest)

T: Baja Shrimp Tacos with black bean salad

W: Fried egg and sausage melts with fruit salad

Th: Chicken Lettuce Wraps with rice

F: Make your own pizza and movie night!

S: Beef Empanadas and Spanish rice

S: Sesame Noodles with pineapple

Happy Monday!
