County Fair Fun 2015

The end of August means fair time where we live!  We decided to go when it was cheap, so that meant Friday morning before one cause we (the adults) could get in for a dollar.  We planned to get there when it opened and then leave in time for The Man to go to work.  The plan mostly worked, except we got there about a half hour after it opened.  I don't think that's too bad and we had time to do almost everything we wanted (I didn't get to visit the vendors but oh well.) I love it when a plan works out!

Soccer Camp 2015

Now that Munchkin is three, she's able to participate in a lot more things. Three seems to be the magic number for classes and activities.  I could have sent her to VBS (I found out too late) and she's started gymnastics (more on that later.)  It also means she gets to go to soccer camp at our church!

Lake Chelan

Back in April we went on a mini vacation to Lake Chelan.  It's east of us in WA but to be honest, most things are east of us.  The Man was going to present his thesis paper at the regional conference of the history honor society that he was (is?) apart of.  Since none of us had ever been we all wanted to tag along.

The Seattle Bubble Run

One of my goals for this year is to do a 5K.  I've never done one and I want too.  I was planning to start running in April but then I fell and sprained my ankle.  I ended up doing a month of physical therapy and thought I was better.  Then I fell again.  So I haven't started running like I wanted too.  I was thinking that I might not get to that 5K this year and was bummed.  Then The Man saw an add for the Bubble Run.  I had seen it and ignored it but he looked into it.  I was surprised when he told me he wanted to do it.  I looked into it too and saw that it wasn't just for runners, that they encourage walkers too.  So we decided to to it.

Crockpot Italian Chicken

Twice this year I've been able to make a bunch of freezer meals with friends.  I've been picking out recipes for this so I was looking for some more options.  I can across this site in my search and thought that the freezer recipes sound delicious!  They have healthy ingredients and look easy to put together...and cheap too!  After reading through this post on eight crockpot means in 35 minutes, I decided to try one before recommending them to my friends.  It was outstanding.  However I can't make a recipe as is, so I made some minor changes.
