After dropping all the kids off at school, Christie took me out for coffee and a treat! And then Steve took me and the kids out for sushi for dinner. So there wasn't much cooking on my end which was nice! BUT I did make my own pumpkin spice birthday cake with cream cheese frosting and Heath Bar crumbles! Mmmmmmm...
The following weekend we took the kids to Oktoberfest in Mount Angel Oregon. This was an event that came recommended by Christie, so we thought we'd better check it out. There was a lot of yummy food to be eaten... including sausage of course!
There were free pony rides and petting zoos for the kiddos!
There were hay mazes and free entertainment for the kids as well. The juggler was particularly amazing!
Then later in the month we had visits from my mom and dad, and then from my sister Tricia! Mom and Dad's trip was short and sweet, but during their time here Dad and Steve managed to rip a large hole in our wall and begin construction of a storage cabinet (which turned out AWESOME I must say).
Trish stayed just for the weekend but really enjoyed the kids while she was here. Paige burst into tears after dropping Auntie Trish off at the airport, which says a lot because it usually takes Paige a while to warm up to people. It has been THREE years since Trish had seen my kids so it was such a treat to have her come!
The sisters even got out together and we spent the evening at the Cinetopia enjoying dinner, drinks and dessert. It was such a treat!
All in all, it was a very busy September. October is already panning out to be extremely busy as well! More on that later. One thing is for sure, Beaverton is starting to feel like home!
