Weekend Round Up- 10/16/16

What a great weekend! Fall is here with a bang! We had temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s and the leaves are slowly changing color. With pumpkin sales in full effect, there is no shortage of fall festivals and pumpkin patches to visit! I love it!  Here is what we were up to this week in our weekend roundup for 10/16/16!

My mom left on Wednesday, after staying with us for about 5 weeks. It is always so nice to have her visit because she is SO helpful with everything. She is great with the kids, she cooks, she cleans and she encourages us to go out on dates all of the time! Of course the day after she left, I had a hard day with the kids, so it totally made me appreciate the extra hand. But, I got back into the swing of being a stay-at-home mom real fast.

Charli had story time at the library on Thursday morning and then we played at the playground. It was the first time I have put a jacket on Emmy! She was so darling in it. Of course, all of her clothes are Charli hand-me-downs.

Miss Emmy is now sitting up on her own! I caught her in the baby monitor sitting up in her crib and I knew she had finally hit that milestone. One of the things I love about staying home with them is seeing all of their firsts. Since I missed most of them with Charli, it’s great to be able to see them with Emmy.

We left for our friends cabin on Friday night, which is located pretty close to the Wisconsin Dells. We got there around 9:00pm and luckily we didn’t have any problems with getting the kids to bed that night. Charli and her best friend, Reese had their first official “sleepover”. They slept in the same room, on bunk beds…..how cute, right? We had a nice time at a Fall Festival, looking at crafts and delectable homemade goodies. Then we walked around a bit after enjoying a nice lunch downtown. That night we cooked steaks, watched some ball games on T.V. and then played a couple rounds of “Cards Against Humanity” after the kids went to bed. All in all, a great weekend was had.

As for myself, it looks like I suckered myself into another long race…..tonight I signed up for the 17th Annual Lakefront 50K.  Since I’m already trained to run a marathon, what’s another 5 miles added on? Its supposed to be a little more laid back than an actual marathon, and I will be running with about 5 of my running buddies….why not, right?

Also, one of my respected fellow bloggers, Caroline Harries just publishing a book called In Due Time: Hope & Encouragement in the Waiting! She’s spent countless hours on it and I know it will touch many hearts:

Whether you are overwhelmed with hopelessness, loss, fear and stress or you are waiting on breakthrough in finances, a healing in your body, your marriage, or something completely different, this book was written just for you! You can read the back of the book here.

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead! I look forward to cooking up some comfort food getting back onto the trails for some running! In typical midwest fashion, tomorrow will be back to 70 degrees, go figure.
