Ahh, the weekend…how quickly it comes and goes! Lucky for me, this week I get a *little* extension of the weekend thanks to the Columbus Day holiday; my college students are on fall break, which means I get two whole free days! Oh, what’s that…? Laughter? Yes, I guess I shouldn’t have said “free.” But two days of not actually going to work still sounds good! I have quite the to-do list of things to accomplish on my days off and unfortunately, day 1 is practically behind me and other than catching up with two dear friends, I’ve only accomplished one thing actually on my list!
Last night as we were going to bed, Jim looks at me and said, “I had a really good weekend.” I have to agree! We didn’t do anything terribly exciting and actually got to enjoy some down time. I think the naps we all took on Saturday would have made for a good weekend for Jim regardless of whatever else happened!
Friday, we kicked off the weekend with an afternoon trip to the neighborhood park. Molly and I met some moms and their little ones there for a playdate before the weekend officially began.
On Saturday, we had a morning of good ol’ family fun and took a trip to Mooresville to visit the pumpkin patch at Carrigan Farms. We went on a hayride, saw some goats, chickens, pigs, and cows, and even had apple cider!
And on Sunday, we went to Ellie’s 2nd birthday party! Molly had a lot of fun playing with Ellie’s play kitchen and checking out all of the birthday gifts. We hope you had a great weekend, too!
Happy birthday to Molly’s Grandpa today!! We hope you’ve had a special day.
