Lunch Tray and block building

The lunch tray was such a success last week, that I decided to try it again. The idea is an old one, based on muffin tin lunches. I've tried it in the past and it's almost always a hit. The cute little food sticks just finished the pretty picture: we have carrots, bell pepper, mango, tiny pizza rolls and left over toasted ravioli. We had a serious orange theme going on there. No special reason, it just turned out that way and I thought it looked pretty cheerful.

As a completely non lunch related topic: we have been building a lot with blocks lately. Finally. My eldest never really cared too much for blocks. Wooden train tracks, yes. Blocks, no. Which is too bad, because I've always liked blocks. It's one of my few non girly girly things that I thought I could share with my sons. Joseph received blocks of course, the right size for the right age, but he never seemed to care too much or play with them for too long. Michael however has more of the builder in him, and seeing his younger brother play seems to have awakened Joseph's interest. We are currently making spaceships. To fly to Mars. He will be captain Joseph, and I can be passenger mommy. That sounds just perfect to me.

As a side note: what is it with boys and not wearing pants? They start out fully clothed most of the day, but by afternoon, well.. let's say that there is a reason why you mostly see my boys from the waste up!

I'm sure they loved the lunch!

I don't know *what* it is about boys. I could send you the cutest (and funniest) picture of my son and his cousin, about the same age, sitting on the couch in t-shirts and underwear. You'd think they'd made a pact or something!
