There’s nothing like a nice refreshing three day weekend. It’s always nice to have a weekday off to get stuff done that you can’t do on the weekend. Our Friday consisted of going to the DMV, registering cars and getting oil changes, not that fun. But it does feel good to have all the little tedious things checked off your list! Once all that was out of the way we took the girls to Get Air and I’m pretty sure every other parent in the greater Portland area had the same idea. It was packed, but luckily they have a great system in place for keeping things orderly and under control. The girls loved it, I was wondering if they were going to be scared or timid with other kids jumping all around but they definitely were NOT.
They have a neat little foam pit too, kids can throw themselves into it from the sides. Jordyn only got stuck once. I have a feeling we’ll be visiting again this winter when we get sick of being stuck inside for months on end!
Saturday was the picture perfect fall day in vacationland. We made plans with friends Patrick and Janeen to spend the day at their house helping install wood floors in their bedroom. Mostly Jud and Patrick did the installing, Janeen and I watched over our little brood of 6 kids under 6. We painted pumpkins which was a big hit, and of course Jordyn had paint all over her dress under her make shift, plastic bag, smock within 2 minutes. But hey what are you gunna do?
Sunday we did a little more winterizing of the house and just let the girls hang out and play. I started a little project I’m still working on for the girls room that I can’t wait to share.
We’re entering Halloween week and that means scrambling to finish up the girls costumes and plans for where we’re going trick or treating. I know what I want Harper to be but she’s going to be a bundled up so I’m trying to figure out how to make it so that you can see her costume. It’s tricky in the cold weather. Well I will leave you with these pictures of the girls to make you smile today.
