As mentioned in my previous post, Emma and I have been sick. Well yesterday (Saturday) I was still sick but I was determined to not spoil our plans. Nick took the day off and we had so much planned I was a little worried about getting it all done and having it still be a fun day. I mean, at what point does running errands on a beautiful Fall day stop being fun and simply become checking things off of your list of "to-dos"?
Well I shouldn't have worried because we had such a wonderful time together! We started the day super early...we were out the door without any breakfast. We stopped at this Italian bakery in our neighoborhood for doughnuts and coffee and then made the drive to a tiny town south of us that has a great butcher.
Since we were down there we made a drive to Nick's hometown to another store with great cheeses and bulk baking items. We stocked up on things we need. I love the fact that we live in a metropolis area but can drive 10 minutes in any direction and be in the country. LOVE that. I also love that we live so close to the Amish folks and can take advantage of their wonderful baked goods, produce, and meats.
Anyway, we FLEW home, changed clothes and then it was off to a fashion show Emma was a model in. After that it was time for some shopping, lunch out, a trip to a Nursey for mums (I heart Mums so much!), and then onto Pumpkin Picking!
While Pumpkin picking we had a great time but it was so weird! It was 82 degrees out...Nick was in Birkenstocks for crying out loud! Usually we're wearing gloves! It was a weird day, and while picking pumpkins we had a Stealth Bomber circling overhead for the football game going on. It was kind of weird but neat all at the same time! :)
If you'll remember apple picking pictures the children were enamored by the wagon and as you can see here, they still love the wagon! Apparently they have a system where Emma pulls, Cal pushes. They fell into their positions quickly.
So that was our day yesterday! We came home, made dinner of burgers, brats, green beans, and pierogis, ate dinner, and collectively crashed on the couch to watch Gnomeo and Juliet. It was a full day. It was a gorgeous day. It was a wondrful day.
Happy Lord's Day!
