Everyday Adventures (Week Seven)

adv 7.6

Last Friday my son and I spent the day together. He wanted pizza for lunch and to visit the Tulsa Air and Space Museum. We had a great time. He loved the pizza of course. And the Air and Space Museum was the perfect place for a 12 year old boy to visit. He thought it was great. The museum is small and we were able to go through it pretty quick, but it was well worth going to.

What I think I loved most about the museum was the volunteers. They were retired military, engineers, pilots, and people that had worked on space projects, etc. They were so helpful and loved to talk about the planes and items they had in the museum. You could tell they loved sharing their passion. I think I could have listened to their stories all day.  That generation won’t be around long and we need to learn from them and their experiences while we can. If you live in OK and visit the Air and Space Museum take some time to visit with the volunteers. You won’t regret it.

I purchased our annual $5 Old Navy t-shirts this week. My kids love these. We get them every year. I think we still have some around that are from 2008. You can’t beat $5 for a t-shirt and they are perfect for summer. Does anyone else get these shirts every year?

Sunday night I made sandwiches for dinner. They were quick and easy to make and everyone enjoyed them. As we were eating them I decided that we should have Sunday sandwich night each week. I was thinking it would make an easy Sunday night dinner. My family however did not agree with me. Hopefully I can incorporate it at least a few Sundays a month, because it really did make dinner so easy. Anyone else do a sandwich night?

Running is becoming a family thing. Several nights lately we have all gone running together and I love it.

We got some much needed rain in Oklahoma this week. It was so nice!

Wednesday night was a biscuits with dinner kind of day. Homemade biscuits make any meal better. I made my gluten free drop biscuits. If you are gluten free they are delicious!

We had a busy week this last week, so I am looking forward to spending most of Friday and Saturday at home. A quiet weekend at home catching up is just what I need.

What do you have planned this weekend?

  1. We do love the annual flag shirts! Sometimes I get them at Old Navy, sometimes at Walmart. They last for years and you definitely can’t beat the price.

    Sunday is usually our day for a more formal dinner, but my family does enjoy sandwiches. We usually have them at least once a week, but not on any particular night. Hot sandwiches make the meal more special, but tuna salad, chicken salad, and cold cuts make regular appearances. Maybe you could entice the family into agreeing to a sandwich night by starting with some fancier sandwiches. French Dip is a ridiculously easy sandwich that seems fancy. Pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw and potato salad or baked beans might be another good choice. Is that a Reuben in your picture? It looks yummy!

    • I think my kids were thinking cold sandwiches and that might have been why they did not like the idea. I was thinking like you and all the variations of sandwiches there are to come up with. Hot, cold, bbq meat, etc. I am thinking I might be able to get by with it if I don’t call them all sandwiches or sandwich night. :-)

      That sandwich in the picture is an italian grilled cheese type sandwich and I will be sharing the recipe in June. It was delicious!

    I enjoyed your post! The flight museum sounds really neat. We haven’t been to the one in Seattle in ages and we should go again.
    We do sandwiches every single Sunday. :) About a year or so ago we started making our Sundays focus more on church and worship to God and less on catching up on housework, baking, and “me” time. I didn’t want it to be legalistic thing but having sandwiches still feeds the crew and is now a nice and easy habit. Even when we have company over we still do the sandwiches but then I spring for chips in addition. Sometimes we have lunch meat or chicken salad but usually it’s a make your own thing–so peanut butter or cheese etc. I just make 3 loaves of bread on Saturday and that provides sandwiches or toast for all 7 of us both at lunch and dinner.
    We aren’t really near to an Old Navy but we have several of those shirts that have been passed down to our kids or gotten from thrift stores. The kids (girls especially!) love them.
    We have had lots of rain (comes from living next to a rainforest–go figure! lol) but now have some sunny days ahead. I’m so glad you have gotten some much needed rain. I wish we could share. :)

  3. I’m gone on Sunday to Awana and on Tuesday I get home late from school and my husband has to leave for work as soon as I walk in the door so the teen boys have those two nights as their cooking nights. We have been doing breakfast every Sunday night for the past two years as well as Taco Tuesday. The kids don’t seem to mind the routine and on nights that I am home and try to vary the routine they kick up a fuss. This past winter I started making homemade soup and hot sandwiches for Monday nights and they have been a hit too. They seem to like the regular routine and I like that there are a few days out of the week that I don’t have to think about dinner.
