Woohoo - footings for the deck have been poured!
Hanging out in another leaf pile...
Having fun with static electricity!
Ava and G headed over to Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey's house on Friday after school/daycare, so Scott and I headed out for a nice dinner at Porter Creek in Burnsville. It was very nice to have an adult night out! We stopped at a local bar on the way home, and marveled that people were out past 9:30pm on a Friday night. Clearly, we need to get out more.
On Saturday morning, I headed to downtown St Paul with my friend Amy, and we participated in the Monster Dash 5k. We ran and walked during this race, and we're hoping that for the next one, we can get the running to be more than 50% of the race! Amy and I dressed up as cats (she was a pink leopard and I was a princess kitty) and we had a blast people/costume watching. It was a great event! Plus, they give you a beer at the end, so that was a nice way to end the race.
I picked up Ava and G later on Saturday afternoon, and then came home and took a nap. I was pooped. The nap was necessary though, because we had a bonfire and s'mores last night. A neighbor stopped over and we had a nice chat with him...and talked a bit more about the upcoming plans for a neighborhood party. Yeah!
Might be the last bonfire of the year...boo.
I think this was G's first bonfire!
It would have been wise if we had taken Sunday off, and just relaxed around the house...but did we? Of course not! Scott has been working on cleaning/sealing our garage floor, so Ava and I headed to the Minnesota Zoo to meet up with some friends. The zoo was putting on a Halloween event, so we even got in some trick or treating, and face painting. Plus, it was REALLY great to see our friends, and I ran into another friend (and her kids) while we were in the Tropics area. We made a stop at the library on the way home, and are finally getting a chance to spend some time around the house. Can't get much better on a beautiful Sunday afternoon!
Not the greatest pic of Isabel and Ava (the two girls in pink on the right) but I LOVED the little Yoda right in front of them. Soooo cute!
Hanging out by the shark tank (Isabel, Ava and Lynkoln)
Face painting fun, but...where are the smiles Ava and Lynkoln??
Riding a wolf!
The joys of parenting never end...G just managed to pull off his pants, and Ava discovered that he left a gooey surprise in there for us. Time to go!
