Lunch Time Law

August 24th, 2011 | Posted by Alison Spath in Lunch

An amusement park excursion was on the docket for today. And like most day trips, a packed lunch was the first order of business on the agenda.

It is at this juncture that I would like to present our midday meal + snacks for inspection:

Lunch Time Evidence

Exhibit A: Carrot sticks

Exhibit B: Homegrown grape tomatoes and green pepper slices

Exhibit C: Standard kid packed-lunch fare = two sunbutter and jelly sandwiches on Ezekiel bread, cut into quarters

Exhibit D: Bare bean butt hummus (2 cans, 22 minutes! I’m improving!)

Exhibit E: Raisins. One of the only “fruits” Maxine will eat that is not in the shape of a popsicle mold.

Exhibit F: Wegmans brand fruit flats (2) raspberry and grape

Exhibit G: Larabars (2) Cashew Cookie and Coconut Cream Pie

Exhibit H: Barbara’s Chocolate Chip Snackimals, found on sale and bought with the intention to pack for this day

Exhibit I: Green apples, sliced and seeds removed

Exhibit J: Hardboiled eggs (from local, ethically raised hens) – shells removed, salt and peppered

Exhibit K, L, M: Kleen Kanteen Water Bottles – Max, Ava and Mom

The following evidence suggests that a bunch of fun was in order for us today:

Maxine Fun Ava Fun

With a little proof that you’re never too young to go into cardiac arrest:

Sit Down

(have you ever had your own flesh and blood stand up at the top of a ferris wheel? try it. please report back which part of your body you retrieve your heart from.)

Additional evidence that good times were had:

Motorcycle Max

Rollercoaster Mania

(i don’t know where they get it.)

And I will absolutely not swear under oath that I’m always a stickler when it comes to food and fun:

Ice Cream for Dessert

Thing 1 and Thing 2, caught red handed with two kiddie cones and rainbow sprinkles.

I do declare that fun was had, good food was eaten, sprinkles were sprinkled.  An open and shut case.  This post is adjourned.
