So outside of this being a very busy month work-wise and my favorite time of year weather-wise... I always know its officially FALL when the activities start!
Last weekend we went to a Bubble Show at a local science center on Saturday, followed by an outdoor family fest put on by a local church. Between bubbles and inflatables, the weekend was full of smiles.
Today was a Stroller Race that was put on by our local Mom's site and a Book program that is more then awesome (offering free books every month for children under 5).... Veg had a choice of jogging with me or riding in his stroller and of course he chose the Jogging Stroller. We came in around 4th place I think, but thats only because most people walked and we decided to jog along with 3 other families that were much faster then me. But Veg was disappointed that I didn't go faster and said we could have won a trophy if I wasn't so slow! Hmmm? Nice Encouragement there! Of course there were no trophies but when we got home he told Hubby "Mommy was too slow. so we didn't win a trophy!" He also told both his grandparents this and any one else that would listen!
*sigh* HEY I TRIED! But I also spent time trying to explain its not about "winning" And that it was great that we "Finished"
So when we got home, Hubby made Veg a trophy out of paper (handles and everything) it was really kind of cool, and told him that the trophy was because he "Finished" the race and that was all that matters! Awww!!!
Next week there is a "Scrapbook" Extravaganza near by and then a Hot Air Balloon Festival which is always very COOL!!! It got rained out last year, but here are some pictures and video from the year before. Hoping the weather will hold up this year and that we will get to see a great show.
Happy almost AUTUMN everyone.... What a wonderful time of year!!!
