Meal plans and the week ahead

Happy birthday, Carson!! It's hard to believe that my baby is turning 3 today! He is growing into such a great little boy that just lights up our lives. We love him so much! We'll be making as much of today special for him as we can.  I have to go to a good friend's baby shower this afternoon, so that kind of stinks, but it'll be ok.  We'll still do some fun stuff and have a small cake with candles tonight.

We're having his birthday parties with family and friends next weekend, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. So much of the week will be spent preparing for those parties.  I'll be heading down to Rochester for Kati's baby shower this afternoon.  Tuesday afternoon, I'll be leaving work early to take Carson in for his 3-year well-child visit.  I'm going out to dinner with some friends from high school on Tuesday night.  Wednesday is soccer.  Friday is my flex day and milk pickup.  Saturday is Carson's birthday party with Kevin's family and friends.  So here's the plan...
