On Our Way

As you read this post, we are on our way to Columbus, Ohio. I know, I know.. it's not a trip to the Bahamas or anything, but it is still a family mini-vacation, and a well needed one, at that. It is just about a 4 hour drive for us, so just at the tipping point for mom to rip all her hair out the 4-year-old, but I'm sure we'll manage. Having been to the area before we had a kid, we knew it would be a good place to go back to that will offer lots of family fun without needing to take a ton of time off work. Hell-looo?! Did anyone say Columbus Zoo & Aquarium? Be warned that any readers may be subjected to heavy doses of pictures next week!

In the meantime, there is lunch. These are from the day before we left, but you can bet we have some snacks packed for the trip, too. And, yes, we packed our Easylunchboxes for the trip! We can't leave home without them!

A salad lunch with mixed greens, cheese scraps, and the last few kalamata olives with Ranch dressing in the container, some watermelon and kiwi, and delicious local beans from the Farmer's Market.

Snack box with Goldfish crackers, grapes, cashews and butterscotch chips, Swiss cheese, strawberries, and a mix of cucumbers and bell peppers.

In these lunches...
