I feel like we are starting Week 3 of real life and things are pretty habit-y now. Have you gotten into a fall routine yet? We have. Daddy goes to work, clean, play, bake, dishes, nap, chores, play, gym, errands, dinner, dishes, and more playing.
Baking!!! I'm so excited. I don't even care if it's 90 degrees by the afternoon, the oven has been in use, churning up the smells of fall. So far it has supplied a loaf of zucchini bread, some orange coconut cake, and banana nut bread.
Weekly playdates with our cousin are back for the school year! The babies are actually old enough to play together a bit now, while the mommies spend their time eating lunch and talking as hard as they can.
More pickle making. We are hooked. The first batch of pickles turned out so crunchy and delicious. The grape leaves worked like magic! Oh, and Hadley likes to gnaw on them on those sore teething days. Pickles for teething! Who knew?
You can still find us at the frisbee golf course a few times a week. It's the perfect way to get out and enjoy a nice evening.
My collection of children's books is starting to come in handy. What was your favorite Little Golden Book? Hadley is starting to love books, too. Mostly she loves bringing them over to me to sit in my lap and turn a page or two, then she walks away to stack more books. But that's a start!
We finally bought a grill! You know we love it. Grant is already a master. Here you can see grassfed burgers, an avocado up top, and onions, carrots, and okra on this Cuisinart grilling platter. I love that our kitchen is staying a lot less smoky these days.
We brought up the Fisher-Price dollhouse from the basement!
Do you spy the soldiers? They must be on leave.
