CSA August 30

Another beautiful day today in London. We hope everyone received their produce without anything suffer too badly from the heat. We packed those bins as fast as possible to avoid being in the heat longer than necessary. Even our 8 month old got in on the bin packing party. Poor little man is teething and didn’t want to be put down. So I had him in a carrier on my back helping Tom out. He enjoyed the hard work. Continue reading “CSA August 30”

The harvest sure was plentiful this week. Bins were packed full of amazing produce this week! My personal favourite is the delicious raspberries! They are so good! They are not making it to see another day in our house! Too good!!

Road Tripping: Day 3 Wrap Up

Well we survived day 3. It was the last of our long days before getting to the Gentle Island. It was a much better day than day 2. Our baby boy was much happier with his teething thankfully. The smartest decision for the trip is letting the kids dictate our stops. We’ve been averaging stopping about every 2 hours for one thing or another which is what we figured would happen anyways. Poor little man just wants to be cuddled as he grows his teeth but we can’t. I feel like a terrible mom!

Road Tripping: Day 2 wrap up

Day 2 was not ideal. Our baby is teething and that made for a longer trip than what was ideal. Poor boy was not loving life in the car seat so we stopped often. Our two year old was great. At the stops he’d get out and run and run. He was so happy to run around and be silly with us.

Giving him the opportunity to run and play is key! It’s key for Tom too! As the driver he’s been making sure at stops to take time to move and work on joint to joint movement keeping the blood flowing.

Road Tripping: Day 2

We’re on round 3 of coffee and almost halfway through our travels for the day.

To prevent leaving dirty dishes at my parents we went out for breakfast this morning. We all enjoyed eggs, bacon and home fries and subbed tomatoes in for the toast. I guess by all I mean 3/4 of us. Our baby, who is 7 months old, is still breastfeeding for most meals but does have purées most days in the afternoon and occasionally at dinner.

Road tripping: Paleo Style

Having left our house and dog Bauer in the capable hands of a family friend, we have embarked on our first big road trip since changing to a grain free paleo lifestyle. We travel frequently from London to Peterborough to visit my family so we’re used to 3-4 hour trips. This time we are going further. After a stop in Peterborough tonight we will be joined by my family and continue on our way to Prince Edward Island with the goal of arriving on Saturday.
