Exterminate! Exterminate!

We are continuing the week with more Doctor Who love! Today's lunch involves a Dalek, one of the recurring villains on the show. I decided to be lazy and just leave it in sketch form but I think it still works


Kidlet has a Dalek cheese on a soy ham sandwich, pita crisps, grapes, carrots, and checkered apple.

You're not the TARDIS, you're a bitey mad lady

So Saturday night brought us a new episode of Doctor Who and the first episode Kidlet got to watch as it was happening. I didn't let him watch until the end of the last season and so we had a few months to play catch up and he loves it! I was worried about it being too scary for him still but I was wrong....he is braver than I am!

Panda in a cupcake

Thank you for all of the sweet comments yesterday :) It's nice to not feel outraged alone sometimes. Kidlet had another great day of 5th grade and we are happy to have a weekend ahead of us! This is actually a lunch from Zoo Camp that I never got to post.

Hello Grade 5!

I can't believe that my little boy got on the bus this morning for his first day of 5th grade. I know I wonder this every year....but seriously.....how did that happen!?!



Kidlet's first day lunch is a soy ham sandwich with cheese paper, carrots, and checkered apple.


Despite a rough day before, Kidlet loves 5th grade so far! He has a great teacher and wonderful friends! His shirt says Voldemort can't stop the ROCK! It's from the Harry and the Potters concert we went to over the summer!


And check out his awesome backpack! Harry Potter all the way!

You otter enjoy this...

Kidlet requested an Otter bento mid week for Zoo Camp. They went on a little boat ride and saw otters playing. So cute!


Bento contains soy ham sandwich with cheese otter and water, carrots, grapes, cherries, and seashell apple.

Purple Narwhal

On the first day of Zoo Camp the kids always pick what animal their group will be. Last year, Kidlet was in the Green Group and they chose to be the Sloths. On the second day of camp I made him a sloth bento of course! So this year I was very excited to find out what animal I would be making on the second day of camp! His group color this year is purple and.......they chose to be the Narwhals.

My reaction to this news looked something like this: ?!@#(@&$&#^ I have no idea what made someone suggest a Narwhal or what made them all vote for it....but they are the Purple Narwhals and naturally Kidlet felt I was up to the job of representing this in bento form.


Here we have a Purple Narwhal made from cheese and food color sitting on top of a soy ham sandwich. On the side are cherries, checkered apple, and carrots.

Hey, where's Perry?

Kidlet started Zoo Camp this week. It's his second year and he is really loving it! The bonus is bento lunches of course. That and now that he is in the older group he gets to spend the night on Thursday at the zoo!

When I asked him what he would like to see in his lunch he said "A Platypus.....Oh! Perry!" 


In his three tier tiffin Kidlet has a soy ham sandwich with Perry the Platypus cheese, carrots, checkered apple, cherries, dressing container, pistacios, and pita crackers.

And since we've been gone for so long, here's a taste of what we've been doing this summer:


We saw Harry and the Potters perform in a free library concert! If you haven't heard of them, check them out. They make up very amusing songs about Harry Potter! :)



Kidlet was in the wedding of my buddy :) Here he is with the bride looking all cute in a tux with bowtie and chucks.


And of course what summer is complete without swimming lessons?! Kidlet finally hit his swimming stride and breezed through two levels in one week!
