Rodeo Fun and April Worms

April showers bring May flowers and ...worms. I was going to do an ode to Eric Carle but the kids wouldn't leave the gummy worms alone, so use it or lose it, I tossed together a wormy lunch this morning.Winging it isn't as pretty as when I plan ahead but it gets the job done, happy kids with full bellies.

Worms, worms, worms

In this lunch :
  • Peanut butter and jelly apple with gummy worm and pretzel stem 
  • Veggie straw basket
  • Carrots with gummy worm
  • Apple with gummy worm
Meanwhile little Blue had a Rodeo and farm visit at school today. So I attempted a hobby horse like the ones they were making at school. Looking at it now I wish I had added more detail to the bridle but you can use your imagination. He loved it.

Rodeo Day 

In this lunch :
  • Peanut butter and jelly hobby horse
  • Franks and beans - Ham roll and raisinettes
  • Campfire - pretzels and veggie straws
  • Checkered fruit salad - grapes and apples
He was the cutest little cowpoke but I'm biased ;) He looooves animals. He was in heaven especially with a white baby bunny which he carried around most of the time, when he wasn't chasing the piglets. They had a blast with the petting zoo.

I love being able to sneak a peak at their special days. They all had so much fun. I wonder how many went home wanting baby bunnies and piglets?
