Mums! Let it be known that Fall is not my favorite season. However, October is quite possibly my favorite month. It’s head-to-head with April, anyways. October = slightly cooler weather, Halloween (and with it the one party that Hubby & I throw every year), the slow beginning of season at work (yay, busy!) and MUMS. I love mums. Buggy helped me plant them this year. What a good helper. The random blanket on my driveway? Baby Emma was hanging out there.
One of Bug’s favorite games is to pretend to be Baby Emma, who is the 5 month old we babysit on Tuesdays. Having her carseat here makes it so much easier to be her! Also, while he can get himself into the carseat, getting out is a much different story.
Painting pumpkins! I try to find a quiet activity for Bug to do while Baby Emma takes her morning nap. This kept him occupied for a whole 20 minutes. That is like 15 minutes longer than last year.
I went for a run on the Legacy Trail on Friday morning. It was a beautiful day, though it was already like 85 degrees at 9:30. The Legacy Trail is this awesome paved bike trail that runs all through Sarasota County. I used it a lot when training for my half marathon. Unlike a lot of other trails in the area, this one feels really safe. The trail itself is very wide and there are always a lot of people using it. Highly recommended.
