Mad for Monday (Max's Weekend Update): Back-to-School Blues

Hi Family, Friends, and Fans,

How was your weekend?  Well, this was our last weekend before we go back to school for Train Wreck Mommy (gulp).  I'll miss hanging out with you, Mommy!  Only less than three months ...

So are your kids looking forward to school?

Weekend Update

So with that in mind ... we made sure to have a good weekend together.  Nothing too out of the ordinary: my swim lessons at Dad's Club, church, music class ... but we did get to spend some time with Gramby and Pops so that was fun.  Thanks for visiting!  Mommy and Daddy also did some fun house hunting in the city.  Anyone else house hunting right now (we are hoping we aren't moving too soon though)?  And of course... the biggest of the weekend ... the Olympics!  Who is tuned in?  Mommy and Daddy are addicted.  And it makes me eager to start my second sport next month: soccer!

Now I did make some improvement this week at swim lessons.  I started to blow bubbles!  Not what those other crazy people do ...but I stick out my tongue and blow!  Daddy said I'm well on my way to being an Olympic swimmer.

Back to School 

Despite our back-to-school blues, in the spirit of going back to school we are going to focus on school this week!

Besides the "school" part, what do kids look forward to most?  Friends?  New school supplies?  New clothes?  All of the above?  Well, at the Train Wreck Family we love food ... and who doesn't love packing a great lunch!  What is your favorite "school" sandwich?  I would have to say peanut butter and jelly.

Mommy and I went to the Monster PBJ Food Truck recently in Houston at The Menil Collection (are you enjoying food trucks in Houston or your city?).  What a fun trunk (the Monsters in the trunk told jokes!), great food, and a great idea.

And now with the Monster PBJ Food Truck!  We were really impressed by their truck (graphics!), the people, packaging, and of course the food.  These aren't your normal PBJ sandwiches ... gourmet!  Check out their website to see their options and choices.

I personally also really liked the bag.  Don't you love finding new purposes for brown bags?

Monster PBJ Food Truck you should have a bag decorating art contest!  I can judge.

Check out their website!  Are you inspired to check them out if you are in Houston?  Create your own fancy and fun sandwiches for your family?  

My Dada was ... we visited our favorite grocery store, Whole Foods ... and picked up some toppings for our own PBJs this weekend: sourdough (vegan!) bread, all natural PB and jam, strawberries, and agave. (And a side of grapes ... yum!).  What do you think?  See photos below.
