Weekend wrap-up/MPM

We’re back from a wonderful weekend spent in Minnesota, celebrating the marriage of my cousin Colin and his new bride Jacky.  It was a fun, but quick trip and I’m totally convinced that family weddings are the best. 

Before we left on Saturday, Little Man E made his football debut and certainly didn’t disappoint.  It was pure sweetness seeing him out there diving after flags, running patterns, doing his best to refrain from tackling.

We had to hustle out of the football game and hit the road north…but not before I drugged the children with Dramamine.  They have some serious car sickness issues and there was just no time for that on this trip. I’m not going to lie: I feel like this was one of my smarter moves as a mother.  Both trips there and back were as easy as it gets with 4 kids and we {thankfully} made it without any incidents.

Here are a few phone pics from the trip.

And, of course, no trip to MN would be complete without a stop at IKEA for breakfast and a little shop-shop-shopping!

What else?  We’re working towards getting on a more regular schedule around here.  J’s back to work, the kids start school in just over a week, and our sweet summer days are coming to an end.  I’m trying my best to get back to meal planning following a brief, but welcome hiatus.  So, here’s what’s on the menu for the Starr’s this week:

Monday: Pizza boats

Tuesday: Turkey Caesar Pita Pockets

Wednesday: Hickory Park Birthday Celebration for our almost 8-year-old Addi.

Thursday: Honey BBQ Sloppy Joes

Friday: Pizza for the birthday girl’s sleepover

Saturday: BLAT dogs

Happy Monday, friends!
