Weekend Recap

It was such a great fall weekend. Friday night started with Gavin, Katelyn, and I going up to our church's Fall Bazaar. The sale started on Saturday but Friday night was the sneak peak. Am I glad I went!! We were there for about 2 hours and I could have stayed longer but Katelyn was about sick of her stroller. Listen to all of my great finds: A near mint condition booster seat for Katelyn ( we needed one at my dads house), place mats for my dining room table, about 20 baby hangers ( who doesn't need those?), a Dino Thunder Power Ranger Mask for Gavin, a Pirates of the Caribbean alarm clock for my brother, 2 pirate swords for Gavin, some sort of Spider Man flying contraption for Gavin, and books. Let me tell you about the books. We made out with about 30 childrens books for a quarter a piece. Great books in excellent condition too.

Saturday the kids spend a great deal of time playing outside in the beautiful weather. That night we headed up to our rec center where they were hosting a "S'More FUN" night. They had a huge campfire going and had everything ready for the kids to make smores. Yummy! They also had hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and caramel apples. They had a table set up for the kids to make Thanksgiving picture frames. We ended the night with a hayride around the lake. We brought my nephew Chris along for the fun. Danyelle, Gavin, Katelyn, and Chris had a great time.

Sunday we headed out to enjoy Busch Gardens. This was Katelyns first time there. She got into line with Gavin and Danyelle to get on the egg ride. Its just a mini ferris wheel made out of dinosaur eggs. But of course Little Miss Katelyn gave big sis Danyelle such a hard time. She kept trying to cut in line and leave the line. Quite comical for me to watch.

They finally got on the ride and Katelyn enjoyed it very much. After that Grammie and Danyelle took Katelyn on the merry-go-round. She was done with rides after that. The big kids had a great time on the ropes with even bigger kid Ken. We didnt stay too long, just long enough to have some great fun.

Hope everyone has a great week!

P.S. Thanks to Danyelle for helping me with links and html!!
