4th of July Bento Lunch

I know today isn't the 4th of July, but it's time to get some ideas! I'm participating in a fun Patriotic Blog Hop! Follow the link at the end of my post to go to the next lunch. Then click the link at the end of that lunch and so on to follow the Hop!

This lunch took it's toll on me. It all started with the Jello. It wasn't cooperating so I gave up on it, promptly dropped an entire container of blackberries on the floor, stepped in said blackberries, and then smacked myself in the face with an ELB lid. Hard. Lunch making is dangerous, yo.


Kidlet has USA and star soy ham sandwiches. On the side are blackberries, watermelon, and layered Jello.

And now check out my buddy Karen of What's in Mom's Lunch Bag? has to offer. It involves Abe Lincoln and Vampires. What could be more patriotic than that?! :)
