this week in bento boxes

First off, Happy Mother’s Day to all my readers! I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing day. Today is my hubby’s birthday too (Happy Birthday!!!), so I will be sharing this day with him. We have a very busy day planned with the kids and a few surprises planned too! I wanted to share some recent photos I’ve taken of the kids and I from instagram. I’m loving that I’m finally taking more pictures of me with my kids. With my DSLR, I’m always the one taking the pictures, and seldom in the pictures. Using instagram has enabled me to quickly capture those moments that I was missing before. I love it.

Now onto the bento boxes! These are all from the archives because I didn’t take any pictures of my kiddo’s lunches this week. We’re doing some renovations around the house, and it’s been a crazy hectic week. Here’s hoping I can get my act together this week, lol!

The top tier held a fishie-shaped container filled with sliced baby carrots and an icing eye, and colourful goldfish crackers. The bottom tier held a circle cut chicken sandwich with 3 marble cheese fishies on top, and a silicone muffin cup filled with sliced pears.
