Fall Fun at Cox Farms

It’s a family tradition to go to Cox Farms every fall.   We finally got there last Friday when our school was out for parent teacher conferences.   It was fairly crowded when we arrived around noon.  I was hoping the fact that it was a school day for Fairfax County would mean less...

Snowy Pumpkin Party

What a crazy weather weekend!   Snow in October was definitely a first for us. We spent the day snuggled up inside/frantically cleaning to make the house presentable for the pumpkin carving party planned for the evening. This is our second year hosting a carving party, so I guess it has become a tradition. The...

Cox Farms

I had planned on taking the kids to Cox Farms this week, because I purchased a Groupon, that was good for this week only.  The idea was to go Wednesday afternoon with a friend, after early release, but the weather didn’t cooperate.  So then we revised our plans, and decided to surprise the kids...

F is for Fall, Foliage, and Fun

We’ve been enjoying a lovely fall.  I wanted to share some fall fotos that capture the beauty and the fun we’ve been up to: I pass this big tree as I drive up our street.  It is huge, stately and turns a gorgeous shade of colors.  It makes me smile when I see it....

Halloween Fun

What a boring title! I tried to be creative, but nothing came to me.  Anywho, this is my recap of our weekend of fun.  Be forewarned, this post is picture-laden. The fun started on Thursday.  It was “Dress-up Day” at Mainly Music and so cute to see all the little kids dressed up in...

Lessons from the Pumpkin Patch

Last week, we carved our pumpkins.   I tried to figure out a way to make it more interactive for the kids, since they can’t really do the cutting at this point.  I decided to download a bunch of pumpkin templates and let them make their own jack-o-lantern face by picking the eyes, nose and...

Everybody loves a parade

We live close to our neighborhood high school.  Close enough to hear the marching band practice and close enough to for our street fill-up with parking during football season.  One of the fun things that comes along with living close to the high school is that we get to see the Homecoming Parade.   Back...

Good Ole Fashioned Fall Fun

Last Thursday was a parent teacher conference day and we lucked out with an early conference time.   Mike took the day off, so after hearing how brilliant our kindergartner is, we took of for a fun day at Cox Farms. We’ve been going for several years and always have a blast.  It’s typically cooler...

Speaking of Red

This week, I did my homework, and spent Sunday afternoon take pictures of things that are RED. Although this is a crappy picture, I have to mention my beloved Redskins.   Despite three quarters of pitiful play, they actually managed to beat the Bucs.  Since the quality of their play thus far has been abysmal,...

The Feeling of Fall

Although I’m a day late (and a dollar short), I decided to participate in the “You Capture” challenge at I Should Be Folding Laundry.  This week the challenge is to capture the feeling of fall.   Looking through my photos, I don’t have as many “fallish” photos as I’d like, but these particular ones say...
