School Starts Tomorrow

Today was a day of fun for the kids and I.  This was officially the last day of summer.  I had planned out a fun day for us all.  This morning we had pedicure time for the divas:



Then we headed out to Chipotle for a super yummy lunch!  This was the first time that we have eaten there gluten-free and I was very impressed.  You can read more on The Examiner in my new article.  I will tease you with a picture of my yumminess…..


The gluten-free boy is in heaven (see our bottle of Ortega Taco Sauce that we brought?):


Hannah not liking her cheese quesadilla (not gluten-free) so much without ketchup.  Note to self:  bring ketchup next time, too!


After our awesome lunch, we headed over to Cold Stone Creamery for dessert.  The kids each got love it sizes (way too much, but I had a buy 1 get 1 coupon from the entertainment book) with 4 mix-ins.  Hey, it was a special day. LOL!  I myself stuck with the smaller like it size and should have chose the kids size instead….that was still too much.  I had to have the dark chocolate with Heath bar mixed in.  So rich & satisfying! 

I had a great time today with the kids and I hope they had as much fun as I did.  πŸ™‚  I think we just started a new tradition. 


Heidi over at Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom had a wonderful post that I have to talk about today.  She made her own GF Happy Meals!  What a brilliant idea!  Jon is a little old for this idea, but I know a lot of others have young kids that are gluten-free and can’t have the Happy Meals.  I wanted you all to see what Heidi came up with.  Please head over to her blog & read her amazing idea!  WTG Heidi!
