    Yes, its what all the lovebirds do these days

    We are going to the jets/patriots game later this year for our anniversary. If I were to do something that didn't involve traveling, I'd probably go to a local coastal town with DH and have a meal at a nice restaurant. For our first year anniversary we went to a winery on the coast in RI (we were living Boston) and did a little wine tasting.

    There are some wineries in dutchess county? That too far away for your timeframe? I suppose thats only good if you both like wine

    What about a meal at the CIA? Went there once, that was a lot of fun! Probably hard to get a reservation though, although i thought they had a non-reservation cafe or something.

This diary was written between the time my Mom was 13-17
    That is very neat Gloria. I think its really neat to read old diaries. Gives you a good glimpse into other lives/times doesn't it. My father has one from when he was a child, living in the Philippines during WWII. Its very fascinating.

    We have my great-grandmother's book of births from her years as a midwife. So fascinating!

    Last minute reservations are often easy to get if you're willing to eat at 5pm!

    The only plans I have right now for Labor Day weekend is a 20 mile training run....and it's supposed to be hot and humid. The kids went back to school last week, and NOW summer decides to show up. It's supposed to be 96 degrees tomorrow, and with humidity it'll fee like 100-105. Poor Nathan doesn't have a/c at his elementary school, so it's going to be a long day for him and the teachers.

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a lunchbox???? I'm looking for a bento style one as I need to send vegetarian meals for my DD, any great ones out there? How about a thermos? I've put this off for way too long!!! I'm still in denial that I have two kids going to all day school at the same time! Thanks in advance

    I think you can skip the expensive ones...I really don't think it matters so much. I buy what I see at Target or the grocery store and it works fine.

    I really like these containers: Best Lunch Box for Work, School - Bento Lunchboxes - Pack Fast
    They arent really bento boxes, but I like that there is one lid to open and lunch is all laid out. Makes it easier for little fingers, and they dont get a ton of time to eat lunch. They also fit perfect in a Walmart character lunchbox, or the lands end ones with a drink. Ziploc apparently makes something similar, but i cant find them here.
