Fall Break Fun!

I really can't believe it's already time for Hubby's Fall Break! It seems like he just started back to school...but I'm not complaining!

We don't have any big plans, but we hope to spend a lot of fun family time together.

We kicked things off on Friday night by ordering pizza, a very rare treat.

On Saturday morning we headed to the farmer's market, followed by bagels at Panera. Saturday afternoon we gave the girls their tricycles.

We've actually had their tricycles since last December, but we'd been waiting for the right time to give them to the girls. The weather this week is supposed to be pretty perfect...nice fall temps and beautiful sunshine. That, coupled with an extra set of hands from Daddy, made us decide that Saturday was "The Day".

I sent the girls on a walk around the block with Daddy, while I staged their trikes in the drive. The girls were ecstatic when they looked to the top of the driveway, breaking into a run.


Saturday afternoon we got some peddling in, but it wasn't until Sunday afternoon that we made any considerable forward (and backward!) progress.

I'm hoping that "steering" kicks in on Day 3.

As for the rest of the week, here's my bucket list...

Family / The Girls

  • Jackson’s Orchard, including a wagon ride and pumpkin patch pictures
  • New shoes
  • New fall / winter clothes
  • Trip to the zoo
Me
  • Clean out two junk drawers
  • Organize my closet
  • Order September pictures
  • "Date" with Hubby (in some form or fashion)
  • Pedicure
  • And should I be so bold as to actually consider a massage???

Looking forward to a great -- and productive! -- week!

Wow! That came fast! Sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy this week ... such fun plans. And - I hope you are able to get the pedi AND the massage!! That sound great!

I think massage should be at the top of the list!

I still need winter coats and new shoes for the girls but the thought of trudging out and not finding something I love for them has kept me in. What happen to all the cute clothes?

Glad they love their trikes. We did receive a hand-me-down trike and the girls like to push it from behind. All my biking dreams have dried up for this year!

Fall Break!?! I want a fall break! We seriously don't get a single day off until Thanksgiving!! :-( LONG stretch with no breaks! :-(

Fun Bucket List for the week! We made it to an orchard this weekend but didn't get pumpkins yet so we'll need to return to our local one this weekend or next.

I need to desperately organize our closet! Its scary in there!

We don't have time for a date anytime soon but we will all be at a wedding this weekend so that should be fun for all then in a few more weeks, we'll have a date day - a fun scavenger hunt with some friends!! Should be fun!

I love the list--definitely move massage up. You deserve it...Christmas will be here before you know it. Bank the relaxation now :-)

Do you have any recipes for crockpot pumpkin bread?
