Fun! Fun! Fun!

Lots of festivities this week. 

We celebrated our 2nd Halloween this week. 

Lil' Man went to the pumpkin patch for the first time with his cousins while I was at work. 
I hate that I missed out on that.  
But he had a good time, riding rides, feeding animals, and toting his little pumpkin around. 
He was all tuckered out when I got him.  

And in the evening, we went trick-or-treating at my in-laws. This was a last minute costume. The original costume was at home, and I didn't want to drive 30 minutes out of the way to get that costume. So Aunt A came to the rescue and put something together! 

He slept like a baby that night.
But too much candy wrecked havoc in his belly, so he threw up in the middle of the night.
Maybe I should give him candy on a regular basis?? 
Just kidding! 

We did a little celebrating on Saturday.
Lil' Man turned 2! 

Other than this fancy schmanzy cake, we didn't go crazy with decorations or anything.
This cake is definitely Pinterest-worthy though.

The adults got an excuse to get-together and eat some more.
The little kids got an excuse to get-together and play and eat more cake and ice cream. 

We have been having cool temperatures these few days.
Made me itching for a run.
But these days, I guess, it will be a shuffle/huff/puff. 
Been giving some thoughts about fitness and goals lately.
But we'll save that for another post. 


  1. Happy birthday little man, what an amazing cake! We should do a group or challenge together, this will keep us both accountable. I skipped some runs last week :(

    1. Yeah. This week, my "unannounced" goal is do 6 miles of walking/running. :)

  2. What a cute birthday cake! Happy Belated Birthday to your little man. He's adorable. I can't believe he's already 2!


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
