We have a casual post for you today. My Grandparents, Oma and Opa, have been visiting for the last two weeks and it has been a wonderful blur of fun outings with the kids, quality time with my Oma, and eating out way too much.
While they were here we had Eamon’s first parent teacher conference. I wish I had a picture of 6ft 4in Jordan sitting in that little plastic chair listening to how much Eamon is like him. “Natural born leader”, “When he is interested he gives 110% but when he gets bored he derails the whole class”
A few days later Oma and I went to the Halloween Party for Eamon’s class and sure enough when they started emphasizing things he already knew he immediately started being silly and making everyone laugh.
We also surprised the kids with a trip to the zoo. Jordan’s family came with us and it turned out to be a really nice day. I made a picnic lunch for everyone consisting of a Muffuletta filled with Boars Head Tavern Ham, Sandwich style Pepperoni, Salami, Roasted Red Peppers and Provolone Cheese, Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies with Mini MMs, and Grapes.
Jordan loves Muffulettas, I often make one on Father’s Day, and I love how easy it is. Instead of getting up early to make individual sandwiches you make one Muffuletta the night before and simply cut it into the desired number of wedges the next morning.
Don’t you love easy things that seem really impressive?!
