Some Weekend Fun

Reading around the blogosphere, it seems we're not the only ones who enjoyed this past fall weekend! It's great that so many are out & about, taking advantage of nature and fall. I love fall!

This weekend we were so busy. You always know a busy weekend by the way you feel after. Today I've been sore and exhausted! lol.

It actually began Friday night. Nothing major, but after dinner we went to JCPenney to hit their sale. Aidan was in major need of jammies, and we were able to get 2 pair for around $8! That's a deal. ;) We don't normally go out after dinner, as it sets back the boys' bedtime. This alone was exciting for them.

We were all looking forward to Saturday. On Saturday we went to a local Fall Fest. Best of all, we met fellow mom & blogger Crystal (Proud Catholic Mommy) along with her two boys! It was great to meet another blogger in real life. :) (we had a blast, Crystal!) I enjoyed Crystal's company, and Aidan sure loved playing with her two boys, Ethan & Alex. They explored a firetruck &police car together, decorated cookies, had their faces painted, and enjoyed the clown making them balloon swords. They were so cute to watch, playing together like instant friends. We sure hope to get together again soon!As if Saturday wasn't enough fun & excitement, Sunday we headed off to Cedar Point. Cedar Point does Halloweekends this time of year, and it's so cool. I love it in October!Aidan really enjoyed all the kid rides. This year his new ride was the Tilt-A-Whirl, which happens to be one of my favorites. I was so proud of him! I thought he was getting nervous while we were spinning so fast, but once it was over, he said "my like this ride. Let's go again!".
That's my boy. :)
Brennan also went on his first amusement park ride. All four of us went together. A mini-boat ride. Extremely low key, but it was fun because it was the only ride we were all on together (aside from the train).

Great, exhausting weekend. Way too warm for this time of year (84 degrees at Cedar Point...84!), but tons of fun.Aidan is already excited for next weekend. They get to wear their costumes to Sunday school, along with bring in a treat! I'm thinking of making these.I hope you're enjoying the last bit of October. Have a great week! Sleep tight. I'm off to catch some zzz's.

Great post Sharon, I was just thinking, I've got to post about this weekend, LOL! Love all your pictures, and you got really good ones of the boys together, I think all of mine are the backs of their heads but we'll see!

Looks like you had a great weekend. I took Mena to a Halloween fest on Saturday and we rested most of Sunday. It is called the day of rest and boy did I need it! Dom was in Kentuky all weekend so I was by myself with little Mena. I don't know how single parents do it! Parenting is hard work. Hope to see you Sunday! Amanda
