Now we are big cereal eaters in our house.  I think we have about 5 different boxes on top of the refrigerator at any time.  During the week, I always eat a bowl of cereal with my 6 year old son before school.  Its our time together, just the two of us in the morning enjoying our cereal before the hustle of getting to school and work begin!  This week we ate Honey Bunches of Oats

Now I have eaten Honey Bunches of Oats before and I love the flavor of them.  My son has not.  I was a little shocked when he said he wanted to try them.  He did and he loved them!  Best part is?  Honey Bunches of Oats are a lot better for him then some of the other cereals he wants to eat!

Mom & Sons’ Day Out

Recently my oldest son had the day off of school so I scheduled the day off of work so that we could spend the day together. Turns out it was a beautiful May day with highs in the upper 60’s! We started our day off with breakfast at Bob Evan’s with my parents (aka Grandma & Papa). It’s always nice to go out to breakfast since we rarely get to unless we are traveling or celebrating an event. I am always amazed though, how many people are actually out for breakfast on a weekday. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table!

Our next stop was the Lake Erie Nature & Science Center. My kids love this place and I love it too! The best part is that it is FREE! The kids get to see all kinds of animals, turtles, snakes, lizards, and fish in the indoor exhibits. The outdoor exhibits include ducks, geese, skunks, hawks, bunnies, deer, turkeys, and a fox. The place is not huge, but a great place to spend about 2 hours. This is perfect, in my book! It is definitely geared towards little kids, so once mine get a little older, they probably won’t want to go here anymore.

Our adventure continued with a picnic by the lake. We were less than a mile from Lake Erie, so we found a nice picnic table at the Huntington Reservation and had a picnic lunch. It was more of a picnic snack since we had such a big breakfast, but it was an amazing day to enjoy outside. After we finished eating we ventured down to the lake. They wanted to swim and play in the sand, but it was a bit cold for that (although there were some sun bathers when we were there). They were fine with climbing on the rocks and throwing rocks and sticks in the water. 

Our day ended by taking the long way home (aka no highways). We had to make a stop at a meat market to pick up some baby back ribs and then took a quick look at the house I grew up in as a kid. My oldest son loves to see things like that. He was really interested in what that house looks like since my parents no longer live there.

All in all a great day to spend with my boys!

Happy Mother's Day!

I am incredibly blessed to be able to me called "Mommy" by 2 of the best kids in the world!  Soon there will be three kids in our house and I cannot be more excited!  Being a Mom is the hardest, yet most rewarding job in the world.  Seeing my boys grow, learn, and explore this world is an amazing process to watch. 

For all mothers, out there I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day, and I hope you enjoy your day.  I am very blessed to be able to celebrate our day with my amazing Mom and sister (who is also a Mother of 2).
