One Final Day Camp Bento Lunch

We had one final day of day camp volunteering right before we left for vacation.

We had run out of bread the previous day, but I really didn't want to take out a brand new loaf.  Thankfully, I had bought fresh tortillas for dinner, so was able to swap sandwiches for wraps!

More Day Camp Lunches

Another day camp lunch for my boy!

Since their camp was held at one of the elementary schools, there were indoor facilities for holding lunches, which gave me much better options.  However, we were also leaving on vacation two days after the camp ended, so lunches were also planned around finishing out food.

A Much Larger Day Camp Lunch

So, once upon a time, lunches were cute and coordinated and featured lots of little bites of items. And then the boy became a teenager and the lunches multiplied in size.

Helping at day camp leads to a very hungry boy child, so I packed as much food as I could for him (side note, he ate it all, came home, and opened the fridge).

Under the Sea Day Camp Lunch

We've kind of aged out of attending day camps at this point in time.  However, both kids decided to volunteer with our BSA summer day camp for Cub Scouts.

This year, the theme was "Under the Sea" and, since they were working with littler ones, themed lunches seemed like a fun idea.

Sweet Iced Mocha for Summer Brunch

This post is sponsored by Left Field Farms, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Finally, I think summer is starting to appear in Colorado!  We have mild temperatures, we have sun, and we have a definite need to be outdoors enjoying it all.  Lately, I'm loving having my coffee and breakfast out on the patio, and realized that I needed a cold coffee drink for the summer months.


This Sweet Iced Mocha is exactly what I was envisioning--my favorite coffee, some chocolate, and creamer from Left Field Farms.  All you need are some breakfast goodies and nice weather as the perfect sides.

Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies

I'm a huge fan of the Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies from Subway, but going out to get cookies every single time I want a cookie isn't practical.

These Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies are a pretty good replacement in my opinion.  They are perfect out of the oven and still good the second day.  Since you utilize a muffin mix as a base, it's easy to swap to mixed berry, strawberry, or raspberry cookies.  I just didn't feel like going to a different grocery store to find other varieties.

Quick Moon & Stars Bento Lunch

Sometimes a lunch theme just sort of happens.

With this moon and stars bento, I had to rotate the croissant to fit in the box and realized that it kind of looked like a crescent moon, and the theme went from there.
