Pumpkin Time!!



Last week I took a week off of blogging but I have loads to share. It’s amazing how things just all tend to blend together.


A couple weekends ago, we had loads of family fun. My hubby, son and I spent the entire weekend together, that doesn’t always happen. I was supposed to go line dancing on Friday but choose to just hang out with the fam instead. We went to a kinderfest in Verona but it was an outdoor event, we are not really fans of the cold so we zipped through there very quickly. It looked like the families were having tons of fun with kiddy games for ALL ages, including a bouncy castle for my 13 month old. Maybe next year it will be warmer and we can enjoy the activities.


Sunday, was the highlight of the weekend for me. We started off at church, for the first time as a family of 3. My hubby enjoyed the service as I was stuck in the basement attempting to listen to the sermon while running after my, now walking running little one😆!


After church and grabbing a bite to eat, my crew scooped up my mother and 8yr old brother and went pumpkin picking! That was so much fun. My little one enjoyed the “hay ride” and was so excited when he saw all the orange pumpkins when we got to the field. He loved rubbing, rolling and beating the pumpkins like a drum hehe!! I just can’t get enough of his joy from the simplest pleasures in life. (Next year we will have to explore a REAL pumpkin patch.  I was very surprised when I saw a pick up truck dropping off pumpkins.)


After picking pumpkins, reconnecting a lost child to her mom (it is so important to LITTERALLY hold on to our young ones in these large open settings) and of course taking way more pictures than we know what to do with, we headed to the farm’s store. We were all in heaven!! There were so many fresh veggies and homemade whatever, including donuts that were amazing, that we didn’t know what to choose.


Needless to say we spent more time there and got home a lot later than we wanted to. I’m finding that the weekends are precious in so many ways. Time must be spent wisely. I used to think that moms who mapped out EVERYTHING, especially the weekends, just went overboard. Well I completely understand why now. It is so important to have a plan and try by all means to stick to it so your work week won’t start off so hectic. Having a plan saves time, money and aggregation. I need to revisit some organizational tools I USED to use.


This past weekend we did the breast cancer walk in Newark. Well…my sistercousin, little one and I got there a bit late and didn’t get to walk but we enjoyed the music, dancing and great spirits at the race. Then we headed to my aunt’s house for brunch. I LOVE going to her house. She knows how I make you feel welcome. It was a great way to end the weekend. Of course I ended up staying out later than I expected and had yet another week of not getting the week’s meals done. Thank goodness my hubby cooked so we have some stuff to start with.


What do you do to stay organized? How do you get family activities, meals and fun done without extra madness?
