A day with my sister and kiddos

Today was the first full day of my vacation time. I got to sleep in my niece's pink princess/butterfly room last night. Winking smile

My nephew is in love with monster trucks. He showed me all 16 of them all lined up. Each of them has a special name and he seemed to know them all! haha.

For breakfast, my sister made oatmeal with fresh strawberries. I also had my coffee and milk.

We had a relaxing morning. My sister and I got to spend a little time talking and I colored with my niece. Like my lion? I thought it was pretty good but my nephew informed me that’s not what a lion’s mane looks like. hehe.


We headed out to the mall to do a little shopping. My neice wanted me to sit in the back with her. Here she is showing me a special rock she found somewhere. lol


I didn’t find much while shopping. I did buy a pretty scarf and travel pill case at Charming Charlies. I also got pink flowers for my hair at H & M…plus they match my scarf!

For lunch, I ate a 6” turkey sub from Subway and baked Doritos.


While the kids played in the play area, I sipped on a Caribou Coffee Northern Lite Caramel Latte, which was very good, btw!


And chatted with my sister.


Aren’t the kiddos cuties? Smile


When we came home, I ate a homemade Larabar for a snack.

And then played Uno with the kids.


My niece went to the kitchen to get a snack for herself and she brought me back a banana.


I don’t know why, but I was just beat! I didn’t do much for the rest of the afternoon.

My sister made mini-banana whole wheat muffins. I had a couple of those.

It was just a hungry afternoon for some reason. I also ate an apple with peanut butter.

For supper, I ate an egg, cheese, and bacon sandwich.


Greek yogurt with granola.


And some frosted wheat cereal—didn’t get a picture of that.

Later on in the evening, I had some popcorn and a small chocolate chip cookie.

And that’s it for the day. I used some weekly points, but it is all counted for, which is the important thing.

And now I’m looking forward to a good night’s sleep and can’t wait to see hubby again tomorrow! Open-mouthed smile
