Happy Friday! I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer. We are half-way through July, which I can’t believe! This week was a busy but fun week. My son turned 8 yesterday which started out with doughnuts for breakfast and fondue for dessert. The celebrating continues this weekend with his family birthday party.
1. Watching – The kids and I went to the Regal Summer Movie Express and saw Pan. They also watched Kung Fu Panda 3. My husband watched The Big Short, which I started watching with him, but couldn’t get into. We’ve watched a couple more episodes of the newest season of Orange is the New Black. I’m trying to catch up on The Real Housewives of New York and haven’t even started OC or Jersey yet.
2. On the Internet – 16 Must Make Mac and Cheese Recipes – This post is bookmarked for the fall when mac and cheese feels like the ultimate comfort food. 10 Tips to Help the Pokémon GO Beginner – We have not yet downloaded the Pokémon GO app, but I know my kids would love it. This article gave me a great overview of the game, since I know absolutely nothing about it! When to Buy and Pay the Least – I’m all about a bargain and not paying more for something than I have to. This post shares when it’s cheapest to buy some pricier items.
3. Dining Out – We visited the recently opened Stock Up in Beacon, NY. This Big Bird sandwich was one of the dishes that we all shared. Delicious! I took the kids out to breakfast at The Peekskill Coffee House for some coffee (hot chocolate for them!) and crepes. We also went to The Melting Pot to celebrate my son’s 8th birthday. My kids LOVE this place!
5. – Family Fun – Last weekend we went blueberry and raspberry picking. This week the kids and I went out to breakfast, went to the movies, went mini-golfing, made our weekly library trip and tonight we are going to a local, minor league baseball game. I am trying to fill up our 69 days of summer with a mix of relaxation and fun.
