Happy Hump Day!


Hey, hey, hey!


Sooo, the next two pics basically sum up our Saturday:

1.  Family run that ended with a nap.

2.  Hanging with Aunt Lynnie and Uncle Jason (and Reef) while reading, eating and watching football.  Speaking of…can you believe all of the upsets????  Craziness.

It was a pretty perfect day if you ask me (and I think E would agree).  We were all hanging with some of our favorite people doing our favoring things…did I mention how much I love the fall?!?!



Sunday morning we headed out in the GLORIOUS fall weather to Green Meadows Petting Farm in Kissimmee.  We met our friends Jill, Ryan and Kennedy along with their friends Jamie, Beth and Ella for a fun morning with lots of feathers, fur and fumes (if you catch my drift…ha ha).

With each admission, Green Meadows offers a 2 hour guided tour by one of their farm hands that includes a train and hay ride.  October admission also includes a free pumpkin from the pumpkin patch!



Everything at Green Meadows is totally hands on and geared towards the kiddos.  From milking a cow to riding a donkey and even corralling ducks, everything is very touchy feely which I know all of our toddlers loved (especially Kennedy – she was a professional duck catcher!).






These two are just too cute together.  Jill says she’s saving this one (above) for their wedding video.  Smile





As for our menu this week, it’s a pretty good one.  Mike is out and about with some of his annual sampling (which translates into some pretty good overtime) so E and I are on our own for a few days, but we will be back to normal this weekend with more football and a Math workshop for me.  I hope hump day has treated you well!

Catching up…


Hi all!  Here is what we have been up to for the past couple of weeks…


Our Wisconsin family was visiting a couple of weeks ago and we had so much fun.  They were here for an entire week and were on the go the whole time.  Mike and I had to work, but we joined in the fun when we could.  It was so nice having them near by!

Legoland was one of our destinations and we had a great time (thanks Jessica!).  The ages of the kiddos ranged from 1 1/2 – 13 yrs and there seemed to be something for all of them.  The Lego creations were amazing and the engineering was so interesting. 




When we weren’t on the go with the fam, we were taking advantage of their awesome vacation condo/pool.  E had a great time hanging out with his aunts, uncles, cousins and Grandma Pam and even tagged along on a beach trip mid week.  Lucky little dude.





Miracle Miles 15K:

Mike and I completed in the Miracle Miles 15K at the end of the week with the fam.  E stayed with them as we ran in the rain the entire time.  Luckily it was a drizzle the whole time we were racing, no downpours, but we were totally soaked by the time we finished.  It was a wet one, but a fun one!






Oktoberfest – Girls Night Out!

Last weekend my friends Lynn, Jenny and I apparently thought we were 21 again.  The guys opted to watch the littles while we headed downtown Orlando to partake in some German beer drinking festivities.  It wasn’t quiiiite like the real thing, but it was a great time with great ladies.  The next morning however was not.that.fun.  Ouch.





Jill’s Sprinkle - Tutu or Tie?

We also had the opportunity to celebrate our friend Jill and her upcoming addition of a new baby to the family!  Her sprinkle (not a full fledged shower) was held at Cocina 214 in Winter Park and was delish.  We can’t wait to meet the new little one…November will be here before we know it!




Everyday Shenanigans -

Other than that, everything is “normal” around here…well as normal as it can be with this little man.  Happy 20 months today!




We have still been eating very well – here was our menu this past week…hopefully more to come soon!
