Weekend Happenings

We had no plans for this weekend and it was glorious. The temperature dropped and it actually felt like fall.

I asked Sophia what she wanted to do on Saturday and her response was "Wear my doggy dress and walk across the shark bridge." Done. (I am not sure why she thinks this is a doggy dress...maybe cheetah print looks like dalmation spots to her.)
We have never been to the aquarium on the weekend and we will never go again. Way too crowded and impossible to see anything in the tanks. Sophia did enjoy touching the starfish, horseshoe crabs, and sea anemones. We watched scuba divers and clean tanks and then she got to walk across the shark bridge. I would have gone with her, but everyone who crosses has to be able to walk independently, and they won't let you carry or wear a baby across. Fortunately, Sophia has crossed a few times with Dave and has no fear, so I knew she would be fine on her own.
Stepping off the shark bridge.
The rest of our day was pretty low-key. We baked a gluten free version of smitten kitchen's pumpkin muffins, played in the leaves, and hung out at home.

Dave was off on Sunday and we crossed some things off of our to-do list. Luckily his football team didn't play until the evening game so plenty of time to get things done. The highlights of the day were when I had a mini vacation at the grocery store without kids and even found time for a nap. Dinner was successful too. After numerous failed attempts, and with assistance from the chef, I finally made a pork loin that did not dry out.

Maybe we will get around to bagging up some of the leaves this week.
