Happy Friday! How is it Friday and HOW is it August in two days?! Sigh.
Yesterday we continued our stay-cation and went to a zoo, it is a smaller “wildlife” zoo but only about 45 minutes from us. I like that there is a ton of open space so it never feels too congested.
Avery loved the monkeys and was pretending to be one when she saw them:
The jaguar show is always awesome!
Trying to get a decent photo with my little:
Watching the racoons, she likes climbing the fence more I think:
Chad trying to intimidate the llama.
Avery and my Mom watching:
I had book club last night at my favourite local pizza place, no pizza for me but their drink menu is just as good! Last month’s book was A Sudden Light. In the end I really liked this book, though it felt long at times. In August I am hoping to talk more about my book club reviews so far. My pick was up next, I brought two books for the group to choose from and they picked The Vactioners.
Moving on to meal planning!
Saturday – Eating out
Sunday – Oprah’s Favourite Grilled Cheese & kale salad – oh sweet basil
Monday – Easy Flounder Brocccolini Bake with couscous (I will use Sole instead) – Skinny Taste cookbook
Tuesday – Chicken Fajita Quesadillas with guacmole – jo cooks
Wednesday – Greek turkey burgers & salad —> need to use garden veggies!
Thursday – Healthy Tuna Casserole – Reveal Natural Health
Friday – Pizza night since we skipped it last week!
Today we are headed to the beach since it is going to be a perfect day for it. Tomorrow the plan is to take a little tour to smaller towns and check out some different shops and cafes. We still have a few looming to do list items as well which will keep us busy. The one I am dreading? Staining our porch!
Enjoy your long weekends
