Fall Fun

This week is Fall Break for us. Yes, we get a whole week off from school in the fall. Interesting, I know, but the kids love it.

We didn't do anything on Monday, at least I don't remember if we did. :)

Tuesday we took Sam to get his shot. We have decided to get his shot here in Smyrna so we don't have to do the 35 minute drive each week. We will miss the people at our allergist, the kids LOVE them, but it is getting too much to drive that far, especially when Sam gets so car sick. So we said goodbye to all of them, they were very sad, but we will see them for his allergy check-ups. :) Then we went to get the boys haircuts. It was POURING rain, and it took us forever to get there, but we made it. We haven't had rain for a LONG time, so the skies made up for it for two days.

Wednesday our best friends, Julie and kids, came up to visit. The boys had been waiting for days for them to come. All 3 of them are best friends with the 3 of us. They moved an hour away this summer so we don't get to see them much anymore, which is sad. :( Anyway, we spent the night playing and watching Presidential stuff. LOL! They spent the night, which was fun.

Thursday AJ left early in the morning for a long camping trip. We played some more in the morning and then took the kids to McDonald's. It was a terrible McDonald's so we didn't stay long. Then we went to the park by our house for a little bit. There were wasps EVERYWHERE. and you know how much I LOVE wasps. Um, NOT! We didn't stay long there. :) Then we went to the Pumpkin Patch. Lindsay joined us there, so it was just like old times. The kids had lots of fun, and I finally took some pictures. When we left there Julie and the boys had to go home. They left, we ate dinner, and then my quartet came over to practice. We learned 2 new Christmas songs and worked on our other 2 songs. It is going well. I just wish I didn't sing so loud! They always have to tell me to be quiet! I don't try to be, I just sing! Sigh....

Today we went with Lindsay to the zoo. We saw some other friends there that I hadn't seen in a while, so that was nice to talk to them a bit. Hi Angel! :) Again we got bombarded by bees and wasps. Yuck! Why can't they just pollinate without having stingers and being scary?! LOL! We stayed for 4 1/2 hours and then ended up going to Lindsay's for an hour. Nothing much tonight. The boys have been playing the Lego Batman game, and loving it, but it is due back tomorrow, so they are busy playing that. :)

Anyway, the boys loved Fall Break and it has been pretty relaxing, which is a good thing, because next week is BUSY! We have a thousand things going on at school, all of which I have to find volunteers for. Ahhhhhh!

Here are some pics of our Fall Fun!

Hi, Shauna :) It was good seeing you and Linds (and all the kiddos) at the zoo!

I love the pics, too. The last two-- the one of Taylor hugging Sam and then the one of Avery by himself-- are just precious!
