A full start to Fall – Life Lately Oct 2016

I’m about to download a deluge of photos… About a month’s worth… Here’s what we’ve been up to lately:

We are channeling our inner “Bob Ross”.

Partying:

We had a bunch of friends over Labor Day weekend for an end of summer celebration.  The weather was perfect, the pool was cool, and the food was yummy.  Love celebrating with these people.

********

Shopping for Homecoming dresses:

Spent a day in Dallas looking for the “perfect” dress.  Favorite part of this pic?  The unicorn balloon animal on the floor.  Cady totally made me buy that for her from the “balloon guy” in the mall. 

********

I also made a quick trip to Canada and Michigan:

Pic on left is in Windsor, Ontario.  What a lovely little place.  The squirrels have black fur and are VERY friendly.  That one eventually jumped up on my table and glared at me like I had forgotten to bring him a sandwich or something.  Pic on right is when I was cruising down 8-mile in Detroit.  I sang rapped Eminem songs the entire time I was there.  

********

We took a trip to the moon from the backyard:

Gage, Cady and LaLa made this rocket for Milo one night while they were babysitting.  Crazy good, huh?

********

Milo taught a class to imaginary friends dressed as The Little Prince.

We have read and watched The Little Prince quite a few times.  We found that little fox online from a European company and Milo loves him…sleeps with him every night. His name is “Best Friend Fox”.  

********

We headed to our local Oktoberfest…it was HOT…

It was fun.  I think Matt mostly enjoyed it because he got to drink multiple steins of beer. 

********

My sweet friend Kelly came into town so we all went to the Ray LaMontagne concert.  It was fabulous!   Although I was reminded again that I am old and staying out past 10 is so hard. ha!

Three Amigas.. Renee, Kelly & Me.  We may or may not have had a few cocktails at this point.  Also, clutch game on point. 

Ray!

We were so close!  Fortunately while we were taking goofy pics and drinking cocktails, the boys found a good spot.   Only drawback was a guy with a chubby butt in front of us that felt the need to twerk for most of the night…to folk music.  He also kept making out with his date.  #stop

Last week I had to head up to MO for meetings and I was able to take our company jet so I would only be gone for the day.  I LOVED IT!  I totally texted Matt and said “forget the Subaru, we need a jet…now”.  As a frequent traveler, I know the frustrations of delays, security, people in your personal space…  Flying privately is the way to go…also, a rarity.  I’m back to old AA next week.

On the flight home, the copilot let me have his seat and the pilot let me fly the plane.  It was so cool!  I got to push all the buttons and everything! 

********

Took some pics of this kid on picture day last week…

I literally have no idea when my baby got so big…He turned into a kid overnight I think…

********

And lastly… last weekend was homecoming.  And my girl had a great time with friends while looking fab-u-lous.

It’s been a full month!

The BIG big kids just got in last night and we are headed camping this weekend.  The weather is supposed to be great and I’m looking forward to unplugging and hiking and getting dirty for a few days.

Check in next week because I am determined to get a post up about all or fall activities – crafts, pumpkin patches, costumes, etc.  Cheers and thanks for reading!
