We have had a busy, busy weekend! Birthday parties and family fun was how our time was spent during these beautiful fall days. We also snuck in a trip to the pumpkin patch and a date night! It doesn't get much better than that!
Saturday afternoon we took the kids to Ergle's for a Pumpkin Patch visit. We always go to Ergle's to pick out our Christmas tree, so I was excited when I heard they had a pumpkin patch this year. They had a train ride(I thought it was a hay ride...oops) which the kids loved and they had a huge selection of pumpkins. We let the kids get a couple of little ones which they took to Baba and Grandpop's house to paint and decorate while Mommy and Daddy had a date night out at a local Japanese restaurant. Yamato's was yummy and it was a great ending to a fun day.
It really has been a fantastic weekend! There are birthday party pics to come from Tucker's party on Saturday and Jacob's(Max's buddy from school) party on Sunday! Mom's taxi will also be back in full force with Emma going to ballet, girl scouts, and religious education and it looks like I will be helping out with the 4th grade religious ed. this year too.
I have a lot to do this week to get ready for Emma's birthday party with our family and a couple of her friends next Sunday and her ballet performance at the Halloween Howl on Saturday. Not to mention Open House is on Thursday and I have a teacher workday/workshop on Friday. Whew--I better get some sleep tonight. It's going to be a jam-packed week and weekend!
