Weekend of fun

This past weekend was one that everyone is going to remember. Some more than others, but certainly there were memories made that will last these kids a lifetime, literally.

For Christmas last year, Omar's gift to his mom was a trip to New York with him and Max. It took this long to get that trip accomplished, but accomplish it they did! They did Central Park, Empire State building, Statue of Liberty, Natural History Museum, the subway (including a ~1hr lost adventure underground), and they saw Wicked. Max is now professing that he want to be an actor when he grows up. At least it's more attainable that his previous dream of playing in the NFL.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I was here in MN with the other 3 goofballs. I was trying to figure out what we were going to do with our time when a friend tweeted about going to a pumpkin patch. And with that idea, our Sunday was set. We hit an orchard in Minnetrista (half hour drive) that had a corn maze, haunted graveyard, pumpking picking, hay rides, apple picking, a huge hay pile (simple is the favorite), face painting, balloon art (SWORDS!), and lots of yummy candy, caramel apples, donuts and other completely sugar charged goodness.  It was a gorgeous day, and it was one of the best times I have had with the boys in a while. This came after the day of hanging out at the Science Museum with Spencer's best bud. All in all, a great weekend.

I'm just sayin...

I hate spelling tests. Really. I hate them. That is all
