Party , park and play

I took Jack and my nephew,Aiden to a Ninja party  this week at the library.  They made crafts , listened to stories , had a karate  demonstration  and even  got to practice  their  own  moves.  Jack had baseball practice  after that and I was worried how I was going to entertain Aiden, but he  did just fine.  He played  with Jack's  teammates  little  brothers. Jack said he wants to start Kung  Fu next winter.

The weather was beautiful  the first half of the week but I knew  it would get colder towards the end of the  week , so we took advantage. I  came home from work Tuesday and said "it's  nice outside , let's  pack a picnic  and  go to the park". Jack was excited,  we stayed  until the sun went down. 

People always ask me what I eat in certain situations, since I can't eat gluten.  Most people say , well what's left? I say a bunch of food. Example of  recent  picnic  or ballgame food that I have packed:

Sandwich  on gluten free bread , a piece of fruit and cheetos , doritos or stax.

String cheese, a beef stick or pepperoni ,a hard boiled egg , almonds  and fruit

Kind  bar  and an apple

This particular  picnic,  the night we went to the park , I  packed:strawberries , a fruity pebble treat  and I made  my own lunchable  with gf rice crackers  , cheese and summer sausage. That  is just a few  examples of quick make  and take  food. Most of the time I cook at home and just take the leftovers  to work  for lunch the next day.

Also Jack finally opened  his Kinder egg that his Uncle  Doug brought him back from Germany.  They have. Caution , choking hazzard written allover it because  it is a German chocolate hollow egg with a kids  toy inside.  Jack was so excited that he got a fox.  He loves foxes.

Then to wrap up the week. We road  the carousel at the mall, then  he watched the new movie Home with his Grandma and spent the night at her house.  Jason and I went to a comedy show.  The next day I took Jack  to  the farmer's  market , baseball  practice and to the park to play with friends.  He doesn't realize  this but we are carefully  curing him if his winter laziness.  The weather is supposed  to be nicer today and we are going on a nature hike and to practice  baseball  in the yard.

Sadly we did not  get to any cool science  experiments  this week. Jack and I worked on how to write a story instead.
