Memorial Day Weekend

May 27, 2013


Fridays After Five with kidney bean salads never made it onto the camera!

Saturday morning overnight oats


Saturday at the city market!


A cheesy No Bull Burger for lunch. Kombucha to drink. Extra long walk home.


Afternoon brews



Beer buying for our upcoming beach/wedding trip. Craft brew in cans!


We bumped into Isaac (the other half of Eating Bird Food!) at Beer Run and invited him to dinner!



Keta salmon, garden salads, local herby Caromont Farm goat cheese


Sunday morning breakfast with the boys


French toast! With lots of local strawberries and sunbutter.


After breakfast (and morning nap) we did some family exercising. 5 miles for Matt and me and 5 feet of crawling for the babe.


We had salads on the porch for lunch and then worked all afternoon before packing up and going to a classic Memorial Day cookout at the Struckmann’s!

Happy Memorial Day, everyone.

Don’t you love jam packed weekends with sweet family time? They are always the best.


3 Lisa @bitesforbabies May 27, 2013 at 8:29 am

Love the progression of the family photos! I can’t count how many of these I have! Thank goodness for digital cameras…can you imagine back in the day getting yor roll of 24 pics back and having paid for only one decent one?! Lol!


4 KathEats May 27, 2013 at 8:30 am

I know!! Haha


5 Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) May 27, 2013 at 9:22 am

Seriously! Lol!


6 Beth @ Mangoes and Miles May 27, 2013 at 8:33 am

That’s a really intense bowl you have going on there for the oatmeal! It’s super spiffy. Both of your salads look fantastic, as well. Happy Memorial Day to you, too!


7 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More May 27, 2013 at 8:39 am

Happy Memorial Day to you guys! Looks like you’ve had an amazing weekend – enjoy!


8 Tara May 27, 2013 at 9:58 am

I spy a 21st Amendment box! Those are brewed locally in SF, I get excited to see them around the nation. :)


9 Matt May 27, 2013 at 10:04 am

I’ve been there! I’ve liked just about every beer they’ve released. There’s some Lower De Boom in the bottom of the box! And I love the Bitter American as a hoppy session beer. At one point I realized I had four packs of 21A beer for the beach but I cut it back to get more variety.


10 Kcirrehs May 27, 2013 at 5:44 pm

I was going to leave a comment about the 21st Amendment in your mix, and was going to ask if you and Kath had tried Lower De Boom yet! Back in Black is a favorite of mine and when I first saw Lower De Boom in my local store I was very nearly hop-ping (har har har) around with excitement. :)


11 Samantha @ Sweetly Striving May 27, 2013 at 10:24 am

Happy Memorial Day to you all. The pictures of your little boy are so adorable I can’t get over them.


12 Zoe @ Chocolate Covered Chia May 27, 2013 at 10:30 am

My goodness! He is just the cutest little thing! :) Awesome photos.


13 Alyssa @ Road to RD May 27, 2013 at 10:51 am

Looks like a great weekend! Adorable family pictures!


14 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope May 27, 2013 at 11:41 am

What a great weekend with special memories! Your little guy seems like such a trooper!! Looks like the “boy” presence was outnumbering there a few times lol… 😉 growing up with two brothers I definitely got my fair share of that!

Happy Memorial Day!


15 Lisa May 27, 2013 at 11:44 am

Happy Memorial Day!!!


16 mary @ minutes per mile May 27, 2013 at 12:24 pm

17 Carly @ Snack Therapy May 27, 2013 at 12:37 pm

That fruity tea (or perhaps it’s sangria?) looks so yummy! I love serving jugs like that.


24 Lisa May 27, 2013 at 2:57 pm

33 Aisling May 28, 2013 at 4:16 am

Love the look of the no bull burgers. I’ll have to see if there’s something similar in my local food market at the weekend.

SMORES… these aren’t well known in Ireland but we’re getting there. I have great memories of discovering them around a campfire with my cousin and his American family in Milwaukee.


34 kristen @ verbs and vignettes May 28, 2013 at 6:08 am

i love m’s little face checking out the camera, and then grabbing onto his papa. oh, and those s’mores!

your weekend looks so laid back and fun. :) now it’s on to tuesday…


35 Ilane @cultiv8health May 28, 2013 at 6:26 am

Great family pictures – you all look great! The smores looked delish.


36 Sara @ sarasmiles May 28, 2013 at 6:42 am

Looked like a lovely weekend! Seeing pictures of Mazen definitely makes me happy…well except the one where he’s about to cry, but all the others!


37 Kristen @ Change of Pace May 28, 2013 at 7:08 am

What a great weekend! Kids are so unpredictable with pictures! :)


38 Heather @ fit mama real food May 28, 2013 at 9:54 am

I love seeing family pictures! I realized we have tons of Jacob and Hunter pictures, or just hunter, but not many of all 3 of us. Looks like a fun weekend Kath! Hope your week is going well. M is adorable :)


39 [email protected] May 28, 2013 at 4:18 pm

It’s so beautiful where you live! My area is so flat. I would kill for some hills!


40 Brittany May 28, 2013 at 8:24 pm

Such a fun weekend. I wish I had been with Isaac so I could have hung out as well. We’ll have to plan something soon! :)


41 Kavi May 29, 2013 at 7:39 am

Oh my goodness Maze is so cute! Love the close-up shot of him on the porch :)


42 Rochelle van der Ross May 30, 2013 at 8:15 am

Wow, your oatmeal pictures always make my mouth water! Makes me want to dive into a bowl of oatmeal goodness in the middle of the day…:)


43 Jessica May 30, 2013 at 8:51 pm

What fun! I love all your photos. You look like such a wonderful hostess. There’s so much negativity out there these days. The simple pleasures of food and family are so comforting.


44 Vidya May 30, 2013 at 10:35 pm

Love you Mazen baby! You are sooo cute!
