We had a fabulous weekend last weekend. We traveled over to Carlsbad, Ca to help Marie and Bill celebrate their recent nuptuals. They were married in September at the court house in San Diego then took an amazing honeymoon to Italy. The wedding celebration party was a wonderful time filled with good food, lots of laughter, maybe a little too much drinking, a few unintentional swims, and incredible people.

The calendar says that it is fall. The teachers at school have been teaching the kids that with fall comes cooler temps and leaves that change color, but no one has bothered to tell Mother Nature!!! We have still been having highs in the hundreds. It is October and the kids are still using the pool!!!
The only way for us to feel like it is truly fall is to break out the fall decorations. Look, Emma’s friend is back (she really missed him)!
Tyler had his first sleepover. The parents of a little friend from his class had to go out of town and needed us to watch him over night, so we had a slumber party! It was a school night and I was a little concerned about getting them to bed at a decent hour but thanks to my wonderful neighbor and her fabulous (ok-- I admit I thought she was CRAZY at first) idea we found a way to wear them out.
I simply borrowed her small jumping castle and set it up in the garage. They jumped for about an hour before dinner and an hour after---this actually resulted in them both being dead asleep by 8pm!! I encourage all parents to invest in one of these--or simply move in to my neighborhood and borrow Karen’s!!!=)
