|Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller|
We have read this book many, many times. Boogs brought it home from his school library. I think our copy must have gotten lost in the move because I cannot find it. In the story, Kansas is tired and bored of being stuck in the middle of the country. He and a few of his neighbors organize a party for all of the states, "one of those get-to-know-you deals." When the states get together, they decide to swap places. Eventually, the states return to their normal positions. When Boogs was two, we started reading this book, putting together this Melissa & Doug US puzzle, and singing the Fifty Nifty song. We sang the song last night (after not singing it for probably a year) and I was surprised that Boogs remembered most of it. In the lunchbox: Texas and Wyoming pb&j sandwiches, Minnesota peas, California fruit salad, New York Babybel cheesecake, Iowa (pop)corn, and a US flag marshmallow.

I posted this lunch earlier this week for a Bunny Blog Hop.
|Curious George and the Birthday Surprise based on the stories of H.A. Rey and Margret Weston|
Boogs was born on 04/05/06. Happy Birthday to my sweet boy. Today (Thursday) is his 6th birthday. We have a large collection of Curious George books and this one seemed perfect for a birthday boy bedtime read. In the lunchbox: birthday cake pb&j sandwich decorated with fruit leather "6" and icing, six cheese balloons, marshmallow with a Happy Birthday message, salad with six carrot candles, and a container of pineapple tidbits decorated with a Stampin' Up present (retired stamp). Boogs said he loved this lunch.
