We had such a great weekend! Very "autumnal." The weather was amazing -- lots of bright sunshine, temps in the mid-60's and lots of blue skies. Cosmo was on a roll and cooked almost the entire weekend. Saturday morning he and KJ made biscuits for breakfast. That afternoon they made homemade white pizza. Sunday morning he made us French toast. Love a man who cooks!
Thursday I didn't feel like cooking so KJ and I planned to meet Cosmo at Uncle Julio's, a Mexican restaurant we like which is close to Cosmo's office. I wasn't paying attention when I entered it in my GPS and it felt like we were driving forever. I actually said to KJ, "hmmm....I didn't remember it being this far." Double-checked my Garmin and realized I hit the address for the Uncle Julio's in Fairfax, VA. Fortunately, I was able to get off at the closest exit, turn around and found my way to the right Uncle Julio's in time for a yummy swirly margarita! My fave!
Saturday we went to a local orchard to get our pumpkin on and couldn't have picked a better day. The weather was perfect and we had so much fun. http://www.butlersorchard.com/ Lots of stuff to do -- we went on a hay ride, found our pumpkin (35 lbs!), pet some animals, slide, walked through the corn maze, etc. Every year we went to a farm in Clanton http://www.alabamagrandolepumpkinpatch.com/ and going to the pumpkin patch is one of our favorite family traditions. KJ's obviously too big for pony rides and face painting but this year was fun because she did a little Pumpkin Chunkin'! It was AWESOME and her pumpkins went flying!! They must have gone at least 100 yards.
Saturday night we watched a bunch of scary movies -- the remake of the Amityville Horror (w/ Ryan Reynolds) and the remake of The Omen (w/ Liev Schriber). I'm not a horror movie fan and had never seen either of those movies (originals or remakes). Cosmo was out like a light on the couch and KJ and I were up until almost 1 AM watching scary movies. She slept with the light on that night.
Sunday KJ had her final rec league volleyball game. It was one of those "play until you lose" kind of things. (Un)fortunately they lost in their first round so it ended up being an early afternoon for us. Since the weather was so good we did our outside Halloween decorations.
