Friday Fragments and Fotos

This week was Fall Break for us, so we had Sam around each day.  (Our school 
system gives a week in September, a week at Thanksgiving, 2 weeks at Christmas, 
a week in February and a week in April. It's awesome!)  Luke loved it, and we got
in some fun events...

We had lunch at Dave & Buster's.  Their food is always so good and you can't beat all
those games!  Sam had a ton of tickets and managed to cash in on a HUGE dodge ball,
a HUGE water-gun and a soft, little CareBear for Luke.

We did much Halloween shopping and decorating. Then we ate birthday cake for
no real reason...

Sam also went to work with his Daddy one day...donning his Cub Scout uniform and
equipped with the popcorn order form!  He was able to earn an "elective" and some
money in his scout fund.  Can't beat that combination.

We have our 1st Den Meeting this Sunday.  Neil is the leader so we are hosting,
and I can't wait to meet everyone.

I'm hoping we can pull our big scarecrow out of the attic this weekend.  Sam and I
made him a few years ago and he still generates smiles in our neighborhood.

Our temps are dropping...and we actually have a chance of rain.  Woohoo!
Hope you enjoy your Fall'ish weekend.  Click HERE for more fragments.

I'm totally on board with birthday cake for no good reason!

Our weather has been crazy hot here, too, and I'm so ready for fall to arrive.

Have a great weekend!

I can't wait to see pictures of your scarecrow!

And really... do you ever really need a reason for birthday cake? ;)

Ashley Sisk said...

I love all your breaks...I need that! And scarecrow?! I want one now. I wonder if hubby could be on board with that.

Target has some really cute Halloween decorations. I got a few that Dominic will love. We are going to wait until next weekend to decorate. Now if the rain on Sunday brings cooler temps, I will be in heaven. Have a great weekend!

Way to score on the popcorn!!!
It's getting very "fall-ish" here too. Not as excited. As long as the snow stays away....

I have a sudden hankering for birthday cake...

We were on the receiving end of your Fall Break -- my brother's family came from Kennesaw for a visit. It was so fun!

Darn you and that cake...I'm sure cucumber slices will taste just as good.

You rock!! Birthday cake for no reason is awesome! :) We just recently got a Dave and Buster's, but we haven't been yet! I've heard it's uber fun. Maybe for my birthday?! I think I'll make the request. :) Our temps are dropping this weekend too and I'm SOOOOO excited! I think I'll actually have to wear long sleeves to Isaiah's early morning football game tomorrow! WOOT! :P

Have a great weekend!♥
