here is a bit of what we did on our fall break!
we rode bikes around the neighborhood.
road to the park, and created relay races. i was not just a spectator this time, but a participant.
we stayed up kid late (9:30), and watched movies
we slept in till (8:00) adult late
we scootered across town and browsed antique shops (okay, the kids scootered, i browsed)
i discovered that i am too old to leap off of the park swing (sorry, no photo of me lying on the ground buried in woodchips)
we milked a wooden cow
exfoliated our feet in a corn kernel maze
fed farm animals
roller-skated hand in hand
caught up with a few old friends
and were well loved by family
