Back to School shopping at crazy 8

back to school shopping, crazy 8,
School is starting soon or has already started for lots of kids.  Michael has two weeks before he goes back for his second year of pre-k.  Even though we get hand-me-downs from my nephew, Jasper, for Michael, I wanted to get a few new outfits to start school out right.

Family Fun at the Jefferson County WV Fair

family fun watching tractor and truck pulls at the Jefferson County WV fair, Jefferson County WV Fair, Jefferson County West Virginia,
Yesterday we decided that we would travel through the hills and over the river into my beautiful home state of West Virginia to go to the Jefferson County Fair.  You're probably wondering why we would do that when we just went to our county fair a few weeks ago, right?

Lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant

Be Our Guest Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World vacation,
Our second day at the Magic Kingdom, we had lunch at the Be Our Guest Restaurant.  When we went back in December last year, we got out table through a special fast pass system.  Looks like they now have it that you call and reserve 180 days in advance.

Back to being under budget! - Meal Plan and Grocery Trip for August 7th - 13th

meal plans, $50 weekly grocery budget,
The week before I never got around to making a meal plan or even to the grocery store to buy stuff.  Because of that, we had a much larger budget to work with this week.  It worked out because we needed to replenish our meat in our freezer.  Here's what we've decided on for dinners this week:

Waterpark fun at Volcano Island

waterparks, waterparks in NOVA, Northern Virginia, family fun, summertime fun,
Do you live in Northern Virginia?  Did you know that there are waterparks in the area?  I just found this out a few years ago, but never checked any of them out.  Well, a few weeks ago we decided to try one out.  This weekend Michael will be going to the waterpark in Rehoboth Beach with Gramie and PopPop and we wanted to make sure he was prepared to go without Mommy and Daddy.

Planning a Family Vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC

family vacation, beach vacation planning, Myrtle Beach SC,
I'm excited to say that we are going on a vacation this summer!  We haven't had a summer family vacation in a while.  Since our family vacation last year was in December and at Disney World, I thought that we would try for something a little more low key and cheaper.  To Myrtle Beach, SC we go!
