October never, ever fails to be my busiest month of the year. Even December’s crazy schedule doesn’t quite come close to the amount of things packed into October. After two weeks of traveling for work I am starting to finally catch up with things like housework, meal planning, and blog posts. Of course, my next two weeks of work promise to be even crazier… so, hopefully I don’t lose ground on all the other projects in the works.
Onto the fun stuff… every October we have four MUST DO events each year. We go to the pumpkin patch. We attend the Portland Apple Festival. We have a craft night to prep for our annual Halloween party and then we have our annual Halloween party.
Last weekend we got to enjoy the pumpkin patch with friends. This weekend we painted the pumpkins to get them ready for our comic book themed Halloween party.
This weekend was also the Apple Festival. We love getting together with friends each year at The Portland Nursery for their annual Apple Festival. We tasted a ton of different apple varieties and enjoyed some Fall fun. Good times.
In addition to the Apple Tasting we also drove out to Detroit, Oregon where my oldest son participated in a fun run and my husband participated in the Mud Run. The little guy had a great time and the husband did great– he placed 7th overall!
That was my weekend in a nutshell. I’m so tired that even getting a few of these memories up is difficult. It likely reads a tad disjointed, but thanks for reading all the same!
