Meet the Family

Yesterday, John, my parents and I went down to the shore house for a bbq with John's family. We got to share our exciting news with his aunts, uncles, and cousins. I think this baby is already loved. The first thing Ethan said  to bhe woke up this morning was, "I'm going to be a big cousin!" Christopher tells us he's ready to take the baby to 'crazy school.' I'm not sure what that is, but he seemed excited about it.

I wasn't as hungry yesterday as the day before, but that doesn't mean I didn't eat! Here's yesterday's food journal:

Breakfast - egg on whole wheat toast
Snack - fruit (strawberries, melon, cantaloupe, pineapple, grapes)
Lunch - toasted flatbread with pepper hummus
Dinner - veggie burger on a bun with vegetarian baked beans
Snack - half a veggie burger with a little more baked beans

I was tired yesterday too, so I went to sleep around 9:30 and woke up this morning around 8:00. It felt amazing!

Happy Memorial Day! We are off to visit our friends Pat and Meghan. Molly and Maggie are invited too since they have a great fenced-in backyard. So far today I've eaten:

Breakfast - fruit and a whoel grain bagel with light cream cheese
Snack - leftover whole wheat pizza (hangs head in shame) and a handful of almonds

I'm going to bring some fruit with me to their house so I'm not tempted by other tasty treats. At yesterday's bbq I resisted the most delicious looking chocolate cake. I hope the baby appreciates these sacrifices! :)

Back from Pat and Meg's - super fun afternoon. We played cornhole, which is basically a bean bag toss game and ate lunch. We also shared our great news... apparently we are horrible secret keepers! :)  Here's the rest of today's munchies:

Lunch - garden burger on a bun with lettuce and tomato; side of cucumber, onion, and tomato salad
Dessert - cherry Italian ice

I'm spending the rest of my night reviewing lesson plans and getting ready for the week. Peace!
