{Meal Plan} Pinning & Planning Our Dinner Menu: Week of August 13

It’s back to school season here, which means it’s back to packing lunches and planning weekly dinners.

Back to school _2017

With our busy summer days, I fell out of habit of planning weekly dinners. But since my family and I are back into the swing of our regular routine, I’m back to planning our weekly meals.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been meal planning. I’ve just not been blogging our menu. This summer, I just didn’t have the time to share our weekly menus with my readers. I’m either a Camp Mom activity coordinator or I’m a fit mom blogger. I find it difficult to be both during the summer months when the kids are home.

And trust me. We had a blast this summer! In the midst of our month long #cantstopwontstop July birthday extravaganza, we traveled to Savannah for the Fourth.

We went blueberry picking….

… and canoeing along the Peace River.

We enjoyed many beach days…

…and we even stayed at the Tradewinds Island Resort on St. Pete Beach.

There were many adventures to Adventure Island…

… and our first adventure to the St. Pete Pride Fest.

And then Allan and I snuck away for our own sans kid adventure in Napa Valley.

With the sun setting on our fun summer days, it’s back to the regular grind of school days and after school activities and time to get back to work.

Tomorrow starts the first day of school and my recommitment to blogging and sharing our dinner menus with you.
