a circus bento! summer bento #8


Today was Keira's first summer day trip with her summer camp. They're theme based and today's outing was based on the circus. Basically, I found out that they went somewhere with those big inflatable play thingies.. Hopefully it was inside and not outside. We're going through some kind of super heat wave here!

So, in keeping with the circus theme, I turned Keira's ham sammie into a clown face. I made the cheeks out of leftover marble cheese, the lips from mortadella and the eyes are sugar sprinkles. The nose is a cherry tomato that I hope to heaven above my kid actually tasted! The hat is just a single slice of enriched bread with a slice of marble cheddar and sprinkles in the holes (cut out with just a plain straw as instructed by Susan of Hawai'i's Bento Box). Holding up the hat is an extra mortadella mini sandwich! Lucky for me I had 1 packet left of the circus cookie Snak Pak so I added that to the lunchbox too!

And looky here, guess who's joined Keira at her summer day camp? Uh huh, her bff! They were both roaring to go on today's outing..



Ready, Set, Go!

Hello! I am [url=http://topshoesonlinestore.com]shoes shipping worldwide[/url]
Because online [b]shoes shipping worldwide[/b].
I was looking for a [b]shoe store uk [/b]to wear with jeans and casual outfits, and also for slightly dressier outfits. These are more dressy than casual, and didn't fit what I needed. The also ran very small, I ordered an 11ww for my 10-10 1/2 wide foot and they fit with little room to spare. On my right foot they rubbed the joint where my big toe joins my foot. Also the leather was much stiffer than I anticipated. The inside is the shiny leather or leather-look material that tends to make your feet sweat if worn without socks. Pretty shoe, would be okay for someone with an average width foot looking for a work or church type shoe, but had to go back for my purposes. I ordered the Clarks Book Romance instead, they are super soft, casual, and are okay to wear without socks.
