We’ve hit peak foliage time here in Idaho, and it is really so incredibly beautiful right now that I am doing all I can to soak it up. Evan and I had to go run errands the other day and we made a detour to take a quick walk in the park.
The other night I had an unofficial girls night out with a meeting for Cole’s school art auction committee. Yes it was technically work, but we made a little time for some drinks and fun chit chat!
We also attended Cole’s school’s annual “Boo Bash” which is a fall carnival where the kids get to wear costumes, have dinner, and play some fun games. For the evening’s grand finale, the teachers put together a choreographed 80s dance routine which was pretty dang awesome! Evan had picked out this costume awhile back to wear to his school Halloween party, so Cole thought it would be fun to go as a team and be Evan’s prisoner for the night.
We had a three day weekend last weekend which was much needed. We’ve not had a ton of rest time since school started, and that extra day off was so nice. As I shared in a previous post, we spent a day out at the local pumpkin patch which was a ton of fun.
We had an absolute crazy storm last Saturday which did quite a fair amount of damage here in the valley. We were lucky to not be too affected in our neighborhood, but there were lots of downed trees and power lines, as well as property damage. With the unpredictable weather we decided to play it safe and skip soccer, and instead went out to breakfast. I ended up taking the kids to IHOP for their Addam’s Family breakfast specials, and then we picked up one of Cole’s friends and went to go watch the movie at the theater! It was a really cute movie and the kids enjoyed it.
Wednesday I got to go on a field trip with Cole to one of my favorite places here in Boise – the MK Nature Center! We learned a ton and I love getting to share these experiences with Cole and get to know his friends and classmates a little better.
It has become an annual tradition to snap a few fall photos of the boys, and the other day we took a few minutes to take some pictures. Here’s a few of my favorites!
This week we have parent teacher conferences, which for the kids means a four day weekend! We are enjoying the break so far with a trip to the orchard to pick apples yesterday, and looking forward to some more fun fall and Halloween activities this weekend.
