Finally Feeling Like Fall

Last week may have started out with 80 degree temps, but we are finally cooling down and it feels more like fall again around here. So, our weekend was full of fun fall activities.

We started off Friday night with dinner out – pizza!

And Saturday included one of my favorite fall activites- apple picking!

FW liked the Jonagold apple.

I love these guys.❤

After apple picking, we had lunch and did some baking. We made cookies to bring to a dinner we had planned that evening.

Saturday night, we went to my friend Emily’s house. She has two kids also and invited us and few other our friends with kids over for dinner. She made tacos and it was a great way for all the kids to run around and play with one another. There were only blurry photos because the kids were always moving!

Sunday morning, we had plans – we were doing the Happy 5K race in my neighborhood. B and I ran with the kids (and their strollers) for the run.

 

 

After naptime, we decided to hit the playground. FW had brought his class stuffed whale home for the weekend (thus the whale in so many of the above pics) and kept mentioning he wanted to take him to the playground. So we did!

And for dinner we kept it simple. B’s parents had been out of town over the weekend, so our usual Sunday family dinner plans were cancelled. We ended up staying in and making which hit the spot. Oh, and of course we had leftover cookies 🙂

Some questions for you:

  • Did it finally start feeling like fall near you?
  • Have you gone apple picking yet this season?

A Stormy Weekend: One Sentence Per Photo

This post will be semi short (in terms of words), because we are still without power and internet. So in the meantime, here are some photos from our weekend, oneish-sentence-per-photo style.

We went out to breakfast for B’s birthday on Friday! The restaurant sang him happy birthday and he got to blow out a candle on a muffin 🙂

We had a date night and tried duck tongue for an appetizer. 

Friday night we had a SERIOUS storm hit our neighborhood. Our neighbor’s tree limbs fell on our power and cable lines. 

While we did have some car issues with the storm, thank goodness this was not my car (but it was on my street. There was a line of cars hit by a line of trees that all went down.

You can’t tell from the photo, but my driveway is between that down tree and the down power line in the distance. We were stuck in our driveway for a bit on Saturday.

That didn’t stop us from having fun at our block party! LM enjoyed some watermelon.

And FW and B did an egg toss (and lost).

Sunday morning included a 5k – we ran with the kids in stroller. 

And the rest of the weekend included buying ice (for our coolers, since we have no working electricity/fridges), cleaning up our yards and dealing with the electric company. Here’s to hoping we get power back soon!

Some questions for you:

  • What’s the longest you’ve been without power?
  • Does your neighborhood have block parties?
