I'm still on my YouTube planner video kick, and I've been lusting after all the planner supplies that the American planners can so easily pick up in stores over there. My recent trip to the USA therefore had to include some quick trips to Target, Michaels and Walmart. I say quick, because my husband elected to take one for the team and stay in the car with the kids (who hate shopping) while I did a quick dash inside. My hauls were therefore pretty small from each store, but I'm pretty happy with what I was able to pick up in the space of 10 minutes.

We haven't done too many city breaks since the kids came along but decided to brave it this year with a 2 day trip to New York City. The kids were quite confused as to where they were going, and decided that we were probably going to "Na-York-a" (Majorca) just like their friends were doing over the summer.

Summer lunches have taken quite a bit of thought over the past month. The kids would be quite happy munching on avocado or cheese sandwiches every day but I find that if I let them restrict their diets like that, they become less open to trying new things, which means that more and more of my offerings run the risk of being rejected.
Quesadillas are something that they love to make. We use corn tortillas to keep them gluten-free and the kids get to assemble their own, generally from whatever we have in the fridge. This time, after roasting some vegetables with some Italian sausages the night before, we had this for lunch the next day.
