a fall day and little things.

fall 2

Yesterday was a beautiful Ohio fall day. Jon took advantage of the weather and brewed beer all day. After school, the kids and I attempted our first off site (meaning not in the backyard) photo shoot. I picked this location because I couldn't resist the bold fall colors. Afterwards we walked across the street to the library and loaded up on books and a couple shows.

There are so many little things that have been going on I thought I would share:

Next week Jessica turns the big O.N.E. so I'll be busy this week preparing for her party.
Without realizing it, I also booked an art show for next Saturday
so this week is going to be a bit crazy.
We're taking the kids to an indoor waterslide park. We've never experienced the waterparks so this should be interesting. I'm excited but a little nervous.
I always get a little nervous with the kids and water.
STS9 is playing next Thursday and I think Jon and I are planning on going. An early celebration for our anniversary and his birthday.

And...on a larger note....Benders Tavern (my husbands' family restaurant) won the local Taste of the NFL! We'll be attending the 2013 Super Bowl! Read more here. AND a few weeks back celebrity chef Robert Irvine was in our town filming a local school for "Restaurant Impossible" and happened to eat at Benders. One thing led to another and Robert and his filming crew filmed Benders chef and kitchen for an episode that will air in the near future!
Read here for more details.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend
