Memorial Day

We had a quiet Memorial Day. When I was riding my bike home yesturday, it was raining and my foot slipped off the petal and I have a nasty bruise on the back of my calf. If I have been sitting for a long time or sleeping, it hurts a lot when I get up and walk. The bruise is on the muscle, so I guess it feels better as long as the muscle is moving. I now see why people have special shoes for biking.
We made a enchillada casserole from the freezer cookbook. Christian will not anything other then pasta, but David, Liam and I loved it. Liam had two bowls of it last night. We have left overs in the refridgerator and three more 13x8 trays of it in the freezer.
We are going camping two weeks from today and last night I ordered something for the trip.

An ice cream ball. This will be great. I am taking the boys camping (in a yurt alone, so I have been working on finding and preparing activiites.
I also bought this book:

This has lots of science and camping activites. The boys are a bit young for some of these things, but they have some fun recipes for cooking over the campfire and the boys just love the fires. (Mom will be buying presto logs from Winco, not spending hours trying to build a fire). I am going though the book and getting supplies together, so we can try some of these things.
Their favorite thing is to just play for hours on the the beach, so that is what I am making the most time for.
I did a layout last night. I used Country Belle by Lindsay Jane Designs and the link to the kit is in yesturday's post.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Wow - a camping trip on your own with the kids? - Sounds a bit too adventurous for me, but I look forward to finding out how it goes.
