Every week people comment to Mommy how much we do, and usually we are kind of perplexed – it’s just the way our schedule is, you know? But this week? This week, you guys, we crammed a TON into our 7 days. Last week, we ended up with a super awesome Saturday outing at the zoo, and Mommy felt like a SuperMom – and then this week started with her alarm failing and her sleeping late. Sigh.
Mommy woke up late, and practically threw us at Grammy Boo and Coach before heading off to work. I took a nap after we got home, and Mommy forgot to take us to the Camp Bow Wow Halloween Party. Sorry, Henry. We met up with Marissa and Aunt Angela for dinner at Panera. Cole still loves the ring sling every once in a while.
I took Dolly to Aardvarks. She especially liked the scarves. Mommy and I had lunch with Michele and Sarah as usual, and I was practically asleep before we got back to the car. We went over the Grandma’s house for dinner.
On Tuesday morning, I helped Mommy with some faxing. Those? would be flashing lights in our rear view mirror. Speeding ticket for Mommy. 🙁 After school on Tuesday, we went to a Halloween party play date at Henry’s house – FUN! Daddy took us to the gym while Mommy was at work. We went for a family grocery shopping trip before bed.
All the Hanukkah stuff at AC Moore is 50% off – these foam dreidel kits end up being $0.50! Mommy went to participate in a focus group on Wednesday, so Coach and I picked up Cole at school and then Mommy met us over at Coach’s house. Mommy stayed up late on Wednesday night to finish up Cole’s Halloween costume. His wizard staff started its life as a solar powered garden light – it glows and changes colors! Henry finds crafting exhausting.
Cole had a swimming lesson after school on Thursday. and then? we went trick or treating! Cole had “mean wizard” face paint on, so he looked pretty weird when he smiled. Everyone loved our costumes, and we got a TON of candy. Cole said Halloween is his favorite day. Face paint on Thursday + class picture day on Friday = bath on Thursday night Mommy had another late night with her glue gun, getting crafts ready for Disney Shabbat.
On Friday, Mommy and I had lunch with Aunt Angela. I played Peek a Boo. Mommy’s third and final glue gun project of the week was creating our ears for Disney Shabbat. Cole was Mickey and I had Minnie Mouse ears!
After running errands on Saturday morning, we read a few books with Aunt Angela…. and had lunch at Smashburger. Yum! I was *so* excited to go see the “ammals” at the Garden Conservancy Open Day, but I totally fell asleep on the way. The little post next to this plant says it is a “Cole’s Prostrate,” so of course we had to take a picture. And then we had to read EVERY other little sign post on EVERY other plant in the garden. These gardens were on the private grounds of a 55 acre estate. So, basically, these flamingos were hanging out in someone’s backyard. There were also llamas. And a mini horse. Cole was super excited about the pretty fall foliage. There was even a fun playground! That field there? filled with ostriches and emus and deer and albino wallabies, and CRAZY animals!Ammals! Isn’t their house pretty? Ignore Cole. His finger was hurting. Date night! Dinner at Mommy’s favorite restaurant since it’s her birthday today!
