Everyday Life and Menu Plan 6.26.16

This week was definitely easier and breezier than last week, but not uneventful! We started pool season on the first day of summer, and although it was barely in the 70s and cloudy, we all enjoyed the first season of BOTH kids passing swim tests. Can I get a hallelujah!?

She can go on the slide now!
All you moms know what I'm talkin' about. I am not required to be in the pool every moment with my kids: I can SIT AND READ A BOOK WHILE THEY SWIM OMG. I certainly do spend some time in the water playing and throwing diving toys, because I'm a swimmer at heart. But that requirement being lifted is sooooo freeing!
Alas, the kids had to keep me on my toes, and both got sick with fevers at the end of the week. There was a lot of movie watching and couch sitting. At least this gave me the time and incentive to clean the house from top to bottom. Fun times. I'm also glad it was during a couple of rainy days and that they're feeling fine now that the sun is out again.
We discovered a new nature walk and park with some fun rock climbing today!
Hopefully the weather will stick around for another week of pool-ing and perhaps our maiden voyage to the beach this year.

Because the summer weather actually arrived before the 4th of July, we had celebrate with some brats on the menu:
Also, last week's lasagna recipe from Chowhound worked out rather well! I've never used no-bake noodles and was pleasantly surprised. I did only use half the spinach called for and added a half pound of turkey sausage to the sauce. DELISH. 

As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie and Mommy Run Fast- be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!
