I got a little behind this weekend with a trip to Door County and an afternoon Packer game/victory!
This weekend was a blast and we has a lot of fun activities on our agenda. On Friday, we met my Dad, Sister and Nephew for dinner at one of our favorite places (I worked there for 10 years before I had Kellen), Nicky's
. I love their muffaletta and gumbo and it did not disappoint!
On Saturday, we were up and ready to go to Door County with my friend Kayla, her kids and our friend Emily's daughter. We had a big crew of kiddos (3 two year olds!)! The kids were awesome and we had an amazing day. Our first stop was The Farm
and we had a blast feeding goats and exploring. I love The Farm in the summer, but my favorite time is the fall because it is surrounded by tall trees and they are just starting to turn a beautiful orange color. Here are a few shots from the morning:
After The Farm, we stopped at Culver's for burgers and had a funny milk spilling incident. The kids were getting so tired from all the running and now full bellies. One of the kids fell asleep at the table and their head lightly hit the table and it bounced slightly. The bounce startled Kellen and he dropped his milk on the bench. The kid on the other side of him dove under the table for "cover". The looks I got from other people around us were priceless. It was hysterical.
The kids slowly passed out in the car and we headed north in search of our favorite apple cider doughnuts.....so delicious.
After we returned home, we relaxed for the rest of the evening. I had thrown a roast in the crockpot and we ate that for dinner after Kellen went to bed.
On Sunday, Kellen and I went grocery shopping. See how thrilled he is.....he just liked to go because the bakery counter has cookies for little kids.... I can always count on him to want to come with me.
After we returned, I got working on my chili for the Packer game and Kellen took a short nap. Before heading to my parents, I stopped at my friend Emily's doula training to participate in a mock interview for her doulas. It was a lot of fun!
The Packer game was great and the we loved the win! The chili was also great, but what was the best was my Mom returning safe from her road trip with friends to Montana to go horseback riding. Kellen was so excited to see her- he sprinted to the car to be first to greet her.
This week we do not have a lot planned besides the normal swim and volleyball (last week of the season- sniff). However, this weekend I am planning to head to Washington Island for the Fall Harvest Fest!
