A Week of Fun---

We rarely have a day with no where to be. Between my husband's 3 jobs, my job, the little girl I babysit a handful of times a month, Church on Sunday, Church on Wednesday, have I mentioned we are a little chaotic. So to have 2 days this week with nothing to do AMAZING!

Monday Steve was on vacation so we did school in the morning and then we were off!

First ride of the day, the tram

Every year in October (and the beginning of November) there is a Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. Wine is not our thing, but we LOVE FOOD! My boys are really adventerous eaters and love to eat around the world.

Pot-stickers anyone?

Our very own map reader

It was really crowded (on a Monday??? We were shocked!), but we had a great time.

On Tuesdays the boys go to an Umbrella School (they take Hands on classes like Legos, Cooking, Science and a Sports class). They love it and I get 4 hours TO. MY. SELF. Soooo, while they were there I stopped at our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and picked up this
More about this in a later post, but I will tell you it has been WAY more work than I anticipated (Steve, if you are reading, blah, blah, blah, I know, YOU told me so).

Our Finale for the week was the beach

Some body boarding

It was really rejuvenating to have a couple days of fun, but I brought home sand from the beach, in my camera. So now all of my pictures are really, really blurry. Anyone know how to fix that? :-(

I love, love, love fall. But, we live in Florida, so our fall is rarely crisp or chilly, it is just NOT SO HOT!

It is this time of year when I spend many hours a week running outside getting ready for this

The Disney Half Marathon. It is my way of not gaining a million pounds over the holidays. I do not run, fast, AT ALL. But I do get out there and push myself through 13 miles of fun.

We spend lots of days enjoying the local theme parks (Food and Wine Festival anyone??)

And hopefully it will be nice enough to open the windows to get rid of the paint smell that is sure to be filling my house.

And, of course the end of the month will bring
