Outside my window: we seem to be having an Indian Summer with temperatures in the 80′s, bright blue skies and t-shirts coming back out of the closet while all my pretty fall sweaters wait impatiently for cooler weather.
This weekend we: celebrated the third birthday of one of MM’s good friends. The weather was so lovely we took the party outdoors and we all had a blast relaxing together and enjoying the celebration of the day.
Miss Blueberry had her first driving experience in a classic red Cozy Coupe and really surprised me when she instantly seemed to know what she was doing – this girl is going places!
We also: did a little baking this weekend, which I blogged about here. I made one of my favorite cookie recipes but added a little peppermint extract and it was amazing! I was very pleased with how they came out and plan to make them again for sure.
I am reading: The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick which I’m enjoying so far. It’s a much lighter read than what I’ve been picking up lately, no sci-fi twists or heady love stories, but I’m enjoying the change of pace and love all of the references to great literature like Little Women, a favorite of mine.
I never got a chance to blog about: our trip to the park Friday afternoon with some of our WI besties. We drove out to a park we’d never been to before and the boys had a little nature hunt and art project and of course some good old fashioned playground fun. I got some adorable pictures of all of the kids – making my 365 picture for that day a tough choice!
