We have had a fun and busy week here! We ended it by celebrating Stephen’s 5th birthday yesterday! Here is a little peek from our week!

This week has gone by quickly. I didn’t manage to get very many pictures. Here’s a little peak into what we did this week:

I saw this idea on Pinterest and it has really been a hit this week! It is a car wash in a 9×13 baking dish. All you do is put water and soap (like dawn) in the dish. Yes, it is a little bit messy but the kids love it  and has kept them busy when we cannot go outside due to it being rainy and very muddy. Read the rest of this entry »

This has been a long week. Emma has had a double ear infection for over a week and Friday was really the first day she started acting like herself. So here is a bit of what went on despite the sickness.

Sunday was our annual Missions Parade to kick off our missions month at church. All the little kids dress up from other countries and then they march around the sanctuary. I forgot about it until we arrived at church. Thankfully they had lots of hats and little flags for the kids to use. So, Stephen is representing multiple countries with a sombrero and a German flag.

Stephen loves his chips and salsa!

Almost every Thursday we go to Nan’s house for dinner. We enjoy seeing her and spending time with her. It was a beautiful spring evening so we enjoyed some fun outside!

This wreath looks so cute and easy! We sure do have enough boxwoods to make several of these!

A pork tenderloin was the hit recipe of the week. My kids gobbled it up. Stephen even requested it for breakfast and lunch the next day. I’d say that’s a win! I didn’t cook it per the directions, instead I used my new indoor grill pan. I’ve already used it for several things since purchasing it over spring break. I’m on the lookout for more recipes that I can use on an indoor grill. Let me know if you have a good one!

Have a great weekend!

This week has been such fun! We were away to visit family in Cincinnati and had so much fun! Here are some pictures from the week.

We decided to take our 6 year old, 110 pound, golden retriever with us on this trip. Since we sold our car, we upgraded to a van and had plenty of room for him! Except, I wasn’t so sure how it would turn out when he ran away and my husband had to chase after him as we were try to load up the car. Thankfully, he was good and has been great the whole trip. We even had my brother who was along for half the trip to pick up his car from a previous trip.

Easter was such fun with the kids. They enjoyed hunting for eggs, showing off a pretty dress, and digging through the grass in the Easter basket. The last picture is my one of favorites. The kids are just patiently waiting as I try to get ready for church.

Yep, pretty much.

While in Cincinnati we have to have all of our favorite foods! Here are pictures of Skyline, Graeter’s, LaRosa’s and Smashburger! I make Skyline at home, but it’s so nice to get it in the restaurant. It’s no wonder my pants are tight. Cincinnati has some fattening foods! And Lynchburg seriously needs a Smashburger. It blows Five Guys out of the water any day.

These are two of my favorite pictures from the week.

Have a great weekend!

We had such a fun week! Here is a little bit of what went on!

powdered sugar
I’ve been caught! I set the lid to the powdered sugar down on our hot glass top stove (totally forgetting it was hot!) and burned a hole right through it. I put plastic wrap on top of the container and then put the lid with the hole on top of the container. Well, our kids figured out how to their hands into it and had a fun time spreading powdered sugar all over the kitchen and themselves. And the dog had fun licking it up off the floor!

My sweet sister-in-law gave me the idea for the name of this post. Beyond the Kitchen Table will appear on Saturday’s and will be a view into our week, things that are on my mind and heart and other random things. I hope you enjoy!

Last Saturday, Pete and I were able to go on a date thanks to Nan! What a treat! We enjoyed Chipotle, a walk around Target and a trip to Sweet Frog!

Sliced Sweet Potatoes
I do not like cutting up sweet potatoes. I wish there was an easier way to cut them! If you know of a quick and easy way, please share! At least the soup they were for was worth the pain of slicing them! And if you like sweet potato fries, check out this method of baking them. I had no idea!

This was the hit recipe of the week. This stir fry came together so quickly and easily. Stephen inhaled it! Emma just ate the rice. When I was putting Stephen to bed he asked when we were going to have it again because it was “super yummy.” I’d say that’s a win!

Did you see this pie for pi day (3.14) on Thursday? If not, check it out. It’s incredible!

Emma
Emma is quickly learning how to use the iPad. Oh boy!

On Friday night, we went out to Sweet Frog with the kids and Nan. I am so thankful that Nan was able to help me while Pete was working!

As I was making bacon this morning, I thought of this:
