Hi friends! Sorry, I know it’s been a few weeks since blogging last! I’m here! We’ve just been insanely busy. We haven’t been home for more than two weekends in a row since the beginning of June. Now that it’s November, it’s starting to catch up with me. I’m excited to stay put for a couple of weeks now.
But let’s rewind. Back on October 22, we went with our friends Janet and Noah (and baby) and Erika and Timmy (and baby) to a pumpkin patch up in Simi Valley. Irving and I started this tradition years ago and called it “The Fall Festival of Love”.
We had a great time walking around the farm and seeing all the animals. They had all kinds of animals to look at and feed.
Even though it’s 90* in LA, who says you can’t at least pretend it’s fall here?
We attempted to find our way out of the corn maze, but six adults and two kids wasn’t enough to figure it out. We got lost for half an hour and then decided to walk back out the entrance in favor of grabbing lunch instead. HAHA Maybe next year!
We had a GREAT time with our friends enjoying the morning together. (PS. why didn’t we get a group picture?!)
One weekend later, we took the Amtrak train down to San Diego to meet up with Jake and Janie (Irving’s aunt and uncle). We spent the weekend relaxing by the pool, taking walks along the beach and exploring Coronado Island. (I know, tough life, right?)
While New England was getting a blizzard, we were napping poolside. My mom and sister kept texting me pictures of the snow.
(I know it was mean, but I texted back a picture of a palm tree). haha
The rest of our weekend was spent watching this guy. He talked back to us and mimicked our actions, it was so cool!
Finally, Halloween night was a BLAST. We had some friends over and hung out before walking around the neighborhood.
Doesn’t your trick-or-treat night look like this?
There were parties in the streets, DJs spinning in front yards, haunted houses to enter and plenty of awesome decorations to see.
This guy had a whole pirate ship in his front yard!
We had so much fun walking around with our friends. We were out for two hours and could have done a couple more, but we were getting tired.
So there you have it. The cliff-notes version of where we’ve been for the past few weeks. Regular blogging should return soon.
The winner of the Football Snacks giveaway is Janie! I’ll notify you via email. Thanks!
Was that the boat we saw the week before that was just being assembled? It came out awesome! And of course we had a wonderful weekend with you guys too – as always! And thank you – I’m very excited to win the contest and have healthy snacks as we have (for now, anyway) given up pizza and beer… but it’s been well worth it. Hope we see you again soon, after you’ve enjoyed some quality time at home!
That Golden Girls yard decoration has got to be the best Halloween decoration I’ve ever seen!
HAHA i know right? It was in the front yard of Marc Cherry who wrote and produced for the Golden Girls. He does something crazy every year. too funny.
Haha – good call on the Corn Maze. 🙂 There was a family in MA a month or so ago that had to call 911 because they were lost and it was getting dark!
