Thursday I was able to meet some friends out for our annual pumpkin beer night at Rock Bottom! We had some new faces this year and as always, it was a lot of fun! A lot of laughs, good food, good pumpkin beer with the rim job! So much fun! Thank you ladies!
Nikki, Holly, me, Lyndsi, Colleen and Missy
Friday we didn't do much. It was so dreary and gross. We just hung out at home, watched a movie and cuddled....for the second Friday in a row, it was a nice rainy night!
Saturday we originally had a busy weekend planned...however, due to the rain it changed. Presley was supposed to have a soccer game at 10:15 and we left out house at 9:30....but we got a mile down the street and it was POURING rain! We opted out of going to the game and about 5 minutes later it was cancelled anyway. So we headed to HyVee to get some groceries (which very rarely do all 4 of us go to the store!) After that we headed home.
We were going to watch our neighbor Cohen while his sister played soccer that afternoon, but her soccer game was cancelled too !
Our nephew Jake's girlfriend Aliyah is taking a pediatrics physical therapy class and wanted Piper to help them to assess the motor development of a child...so they came over and asked her to do certain things.....hop on one foot, throw a ball, bounce a ball and catch it, skip, follow direction and many other things..... She was cooperative for about 50% of it. She seemed to be afraid or embarrassed if she couldn't do something and then would be hesitant...but she did good overall!
Then we were invited to a house party of a friend of Steve's from high school who lives in Adel. We have never made it to this party but have always heard good things about it. And they do go ALL out for this party!
A hot chocolate bar....with MORE than you can imagine for hot chocolate. Awesome!
A smore's bar....seriously awesome!
They had Dustin Baird playing music in the open part of their outbuilding....of course, that is where Piper wanted to sit.
All the drinks you could never need.
We did have plans to do something fun today, Sunday. We thought about heading down to Winterset for the their Covered Bridge Days, we thought about a pumpkin patch....but it was chilly in the morning and we thought a lot of places would be muddy and ours kids would whine about being cold. We hit up Cozy Café for brunch, https://www.cozycafejohnston.com/cozycafejohnston which was actually really good and really cheap and we will totally go there again! and we were going to stop and just get pumpkins at a road side stand but the kids (mostly Piper) were so whiney and snotty that we didn't and then when we got home...they spent time in their rooms cleaning and putting away things b/c they obviously couldn't be together without fighting!
Once they were in trouble and got separated....then they realized how bad that sucked and then Presley went to help Piper finish cleaning and putting her clothes away.....they played and played and we didn't really see them.....THEN I had to interrupt them b/c it was time for Presley to go to volleyball!
Having fun jumping up against the wall, she got up a lot further than I thought she would!
Serving...she got it over every time! This is where she is most comfortable!
Playing games at 'halftime' with the college volunteers!
Sunday nights are our time to unwind....baths, early bedtimes, fruit and snacks before bed, time to read at bedtime and just cuddle! :)
