How’s Daylight Savings treating all the parents out there? I’m hoping our nifty stoplight alarm clock will help get the kids back on track quickly, but for now, we’re waking up at 6 instead of 7. I’d much prefer to be like AZ and HI and not change!
We had a fun Halloween weekend that of course included trick-or-treating.
I really didn’t take many pictures (especially not in quality lighting) on Halloween itself. You can see better pictures on this post. As you can see, Reece carved his pumpkin all by himself this year with the little pumpkin cutting tools. He had fun, but didn’t really like how his pumpkin turned out in the end.
And you know my fun alien pumpkin I carved last weekend? Well that didn’t last. I think the direct sun on the front porch did it in.
We were worried a rainy day would ruin our trick-or-treating, but fortunately it stopped for both that and Reece’s first school Halloween parade earlier in the day. Emme sure liked getting wet, though.
Other than Halloween, we enjoyed a family bike ride.
And because Emme cried and cried when we got back home because she didn’t want the ride to be over, I took her out for a lap around the block on her balance bike.
She cried and cried when we returned home from that too! Not even two yet and that girl is doing awesome on that thing. Looks like she might be the one taking after her cycling-loving daddy.
Sunday was the usual day of workouts, chill time (including front porch coffee date with neighbors) and then dinner out at Terún to celebrate my father-in-law’s 60th birthday. We didn’t bring a gift, though, because I had accidentally-on-purpose canceled the order from Amazon! I saw the order in my email and knew I hadn’t ordered it and my husband certainly wouldn’t have ordered that for himself and since I’ve received something from Amazon once before that I didn’t order, I thought someone had hacked my account and canceled it.
No pictures from dinner, though, because pictures in dim indoor lighting always make food look bad. If you’re in the Bay Area, though, add Terún to your must try list for authentic Italian food including true Neopolitan pizza, made-in-house pasta and delicious entrees.
I’m certainly enjoying our fall weather, but I just checked and it’s supposed to be 77 at the beach on Wednesday, so we might have to head that way!
Have you ever received something from Amazon that you didn’t order?
