This past weekend my parents came up and we celebrated both their birthdays. My mom's was at the end of September and my dad's was October 22nd. After starting our Saturday with a beautiful walk at the park we came home to take a nice drive and enjoy the beauty of the changing of the leaves. It was a beautiful fall day.
We decided to take them out to a nice upscale restaurant to eat, one with a history and perhaps a ghost or 2? ;-)
Kathleen was so excited to enjoy their fresh pumpkin muffins, they just melted in your mouth!
Just happened to catch this photo of Kathleen as she was pondering whether or not to try Jerry's artichoke appetizer. In the end she did and love it!
The soup was a shrimp/squash soup so yummy!!!
Kathleen was also happy to get her own shrimp!
I ordered a chicken, pasta vegetable bake that was really good. Unfortunately I had another allergic reaction to something in it so it ended up becoming lunch for Jerry on Monday. :-) One of these days I'll figure out these allergies I get when eating different foods.
This is an article and a painting they had hanging inside we noticed while walking through.
As a joke Jerry got my mom a cane that makes all kinds of funny comments, we were all cracking up.
We also stopped by an Amish farmer's market and got all kinds of yummy fruits and veggies. the girl's picked their pumpkins we'll be decorating them next week. Lots of things planned over the next few weeks.
The leaves are starting to slowly fall in our front yard so we'll be losing some of our privacy we have in the Spring and Summer.
Hayley has been hard at work putting her Tipi together. Really proud of her work and research and she wanted to do it all on her own as a project. She borrowed books from my dad and asked him lots of questions and he helped her out as needed. She also did a lot of research on the internet.
She's not nearly finished yet, but here are a few of the details she's been adding so far.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and were able to take some time to enjoy the "little" things in life.
