Menu ReVamp Mondays

I've been doing Menu plan Monday for a while now, and it's been great, but honestly I have not been able to keep with the menu.  I have started doing LESS cooking.  Although I LOVE to cook, I've found that by REVamping the Menu, I can have dinner on the table everyday, but only cook 3-4 days a week, the rest of the days it's merely TOUCHING UP...

So, my menu this week will look a little more like... THIS...


  • Friday.......................
  •  Pizza
  • Saturday..................Free Day
  • Sunday..................... Left Overs


This should take the guessing out of cooking, save us some money when it comes to groceries shopping, and help me keep to the meals I CAN eat...

A Day On A Cable Car


 On our summer vacation we decided to spend the day in Puerto Plata.  I was very excited to take the trip to the botanical gardens via the cable car.  OK the truth is I was excited to scare the crud out of the girls by making them RIDE the cable cars.. Bwahahahaha



 The ride was AMAZING. 

Once we reached the top, the gremlins went INSANE.  They absolutely love nature and the botanical garden was just spectacular, and the fog?  Well that just added to the mystery for them. 



We walked all afternoon, and of course they had to smell EVERY flower.  It was a great experience for us all.  All in all we had a wonderful time, although the ride DOWN was definitely a DIFFERENT story, but isn't it ALWAYS.

A Day At The Farm



So, we decided to spend the day at the farm.  It was amazing to get away for a day with the gremlins.  The gremlins fed the chickens, rode the horses, picked and ate the fresh fruit, and even got to PET a chicken.  Not to mention the meal they prepared for us was absolutely AMAZING.  I love the flavor cooking on wood coals gives the food in the country.

They had a blast. The only thing they regretted was not being able to go swimming int he river, but its always good to leave them with something to look forward to for next time right?

Seperation Anxiety



 One of the obstacles we face as a military family is moving.  We were lucky enough to be stationed in ONE state for almost 10 years, but our day had come and we dreaded it.  Luckily, like most families do, we made the most of it and in the mean time made some AMAZING friends, and then the time came to move yet AGAIN after two years when the hubster had to retire.  Time to pack up, time to readjust and time to say good bye. 

This chic, although sad, was accustomed to all of this to adjusting, it's what we DO.  The gremlins on the other hand were NOT.  Its been over 2 years since we left our life in New England behind and they STILL cry themselves to sleep sometimes. 

I try my hardest to reassure them of the positive points, but it does NOT lessen the pain any.  Fortunately they take some comfort in the NEW friends they've made, in keeping busy with Kindergarten, homework, and activities.  BUT MAN WE SURE DO MISS THEM!!!!!
