Henry's Lunchbox - Carrot Water?

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch. He was a big fan of the mini-plums we found at our local produce market, selecting them for his lunchbox three days in a row. 

He also tried out an original creation: Carrot Water. On Wednesday, his lunchbox came home without the carrots he had packed. Instead, we found them hiding in his water bottle. He claimed that he wanted to try drinking carrot-flavored water, just as he likes a few drops of lemon juice to make Lemon Water. The next day, he promised not to put them in his water ifhe could pack a dipping sauce for them. When he packed lunch on Friday, he asked if he could put a carrot in his water bottle again and he drank most of it at lunchtime.

Feeding Our Family at Disneyland - Rides and Sweets Treats

A Disney trip just isn't complete without a few sugary goodies and we definitely found our share of desserts. I don't talk much about desserts on this blog, but Henry wanted to make sure we included his favorite Disney treats, as well as his top ride recommendations for preschoolers.

Disneyland covers 85 acres and California Adventure is another 72 acres so we were definitely tired at the end of each day. Nana's pedometer showed that we logged 8-10 miles per day. After spending all day walking through the parks, it was enjoyable to end each day with a special sweet. Some we shared, and others Henry got to eat on his own.
