Weekend Recap + Aug 30 Menu Plan

This weekend, Nathan and I took my parents camping in Stony Brook State Park.  This was my Mom's first time camping. Ever.  We weren't sure how she would do, but she had a blast!  We had so much fun making memories, and my parents are already planning for their next camping trip! :)

Here are a few pictures from our weekend:

Stony Brook has lots of pretty waterfalls . . .

Roasting hot dogs! :)

Stony Brook is located near Dansville--this is the town where the first chapter of the American Red Cross was started in  1881

We had so much fun with our family this weekend, and can't wait for more fall camping!


Another busy week around here!  Our menu plan is fairly simply this week because Nathan is closing some, and we're helping my parents house guests (the Williams family) move into their new apartment this week, too.  We're sad to see them go, but they'll be right up the way.  Keep them in your prayers--they are going to start a church in the Buffalo area.

Here's what's on our menu this week . . .
MondayOn Your Own (I'll be at Bible Study and Nathan is working)
Tuesday: Turkey Meatball Pasta  w/ Salad
Wednesday: Lightened Up Chicken Stir Fry w/ Veggies (*new*)
Friday: Leftover Night
Sunday: TBD

  1. Looks like fun - the scenery is gorgeous. Thanks for posting!

  2. It looks like you all had a great time! Thanks for sharing the pics!!! I think your Dad sent some to Momma so she can show Granny. Love you and have a great week!!!

  3. Awesome pictures. The waterfalls are incredible. Seeing your post makes me excited for our Labor Day camping trip next weekend. It's the 3rd year that we've camped with my parents and my in-laws. They're seasoned pros, though. They both have pretty nice campers. We're the ones sleeping in the tent. :)

    Your meals sound delicious, too!

  4. what a fun time!! I'm so glad your parents {especially your mom} enjoyed camping :)

    Enjoy your week of yummy meals -- hope you like the meatballs!
