Friday: Sofia had her first little Gym experience (recap soon)
Saturday: gift hunting for a 2-years old boy since we’re invited to his birthday party
It was not an easy endeavor (so many toys out there!!!) but I finally decided with a train kind of thing. Hope he likes it
New products: whole chicken. I’ve never roasted a whole chicken at home. I always liked roasted chicken when eating out, so why not try to make at home.
last week I bought some steel oats from the bulk section, since I liked it so much, I got this one from Tj’s.
Another flavor of the Irene’s biscotti. This one is coffee amaretto which I couldn’t taste much the amaretto. I think like the cranberry one more.
Mary’s gone crackers. Nice as dipper for cottage cheese with some maple syrup.
I realized that crunchiness is what I look for in snacks. Either savory or sweet, it MUST be crunchy!
someone was entertained while mom put away all the groceries 😉
Sunday: food preparation for the week
1.5 hrs later
soooo delicious!!!!! Definitely will make it again.

For the first time in life I had fun being surrounded by sooo many kids.

Q: Where are you going on vacation this summer? I’m planning for our summer vacation. Since Sofia is still so young, I don’t want to take long flights so the original idea of going to China is out. Cancun seems a good candidate: nonstop short flight, well-developed tourism, relaxing and beautiful beaches. I’m looking for an all-inclusive resort so we don’t have to worry about anything. If you’ve been in Cancun, any tip on where to go, where did you book it, and what to do/see?
