Casual Sunday Salad Bar
|My Family & a couple of the kids friends that were over for dinner:)|
We've discussed all sorts of things from the Cold War, to my husband's somewhat... unusual past (so far I've avoided being questioned, but the kids are merciless on their dad... and the reactions are priceless. Apparently they thought he'd most been a goody two shoes most of his life.) Kainan being in Public School now always brings new and interesting topics as well. He is SUCH a character. Basically, a table full of really good story tellers makes for EPIC dinner conversations!
We're doing well during the week, but on the weekends, there seems to be too much running this way and that, so I decided that I'd just lay out some fresh veggies and salad fixings. I've found that my kids rarely think to open up the fridge and grab veggies, but if I have them out and easy to access, we all eat a lot more of them.
We finished off our day in the front room where some of us worked off and on with a big Hollywood puzzle, talked about the Avengers and why Patrick doesn't "buy" the Iron Man concept, because no one explained how Tony Stark doesn't die when he's thrown through a tree just because he's wrapped in a suit of metal.
I just stood in the middle of the room and snapped a few pics as I turned... This is our front family room/office/art/game room (You can see more photos of our front room here on my Always Family Blog)
And our dog, Kitty laid around being spoiled by Kainan, as usual.
