Life Update

Okay, so I've obviously not been as on top of this TR as I hoped to be. I had thought adding some life updates would keep it moving, but that hasn't happened either... so here's a bit of what's been interfering with the TR...

First and foremost has been the new schedule with Lisa back at work. Up early (though not as early as Lisa) to get Bella ready for school and of course, Jackson can't be forgotten. The little guy keeps me occupied while Bella is getting educated, and before I know it, it's time to pick up Bella. The weather's been nice, so we usually hang out at the playground a bit after school before heading home.

Lisa gets home just in time for me to head off to work. I usually catch a little nap on the train on the way in. And despite my best intentions to do some work when I get home... I'm just too tired. It's weird because I used to be such a night owl. Must be getting old. Like Bilbo Baggins, I feel like too little butter spread over too much bread!

And at least for September and October, my weekends have been mostly about work. That should slow down a bit next month, but I've only had a handful of days off over the past couple of months.

We've tried to make the most of those. Last month we got out east to do some apple picking:



Jackson couldn't wait until we got the apples home!





Bella tried to find the biggest apples she could





and the apples were certainly HUGE this year...




Bella's been playing her first season of soccer:
















Jackson has been doing well. He gave us a little scare not too long ago when he had an apparent allergic reaction to an antibiotic he was on. We spent a morning at the ER with him and thankfully it did not get any worse and cleared up fairly quickly.

He just got his haircut the other day:





and here's Jackson rocking the new "do" at the playground:



We went pumpkin picking and we've started getting ready for Halloween. Unfortunately I can't find the memory card with those pictures.

I'll try and do better with the updates... I really hope to get a trip update up before the weekend is out!

Thanks for your patience!!

Well, at least you have been busy having fun! That's cool the way they trained the apples to grow low to the ground like that so the kids could pick them. Super cute kids!

Thanks! I never thought kids of mine would be cute. Let's hope they stay that way!!

The place we went apple picking was interesting. We had our hearts on going back to this HUGE orchard in the mountains. (well, they would be mountains to us, but hills to a lot of other people, I suppose) Unfortunately, my schedule didn't cooperate. So we went somewhere closer. This place had so many apples. It was a bit pricey, and our bag was full so quickly. Afterwards we drove to a farmstand to get some grilled corn before heading home.

Thank you. That was my evil plan. Distract you all with the kids while I continued procrastinating with the TR!!!

Sorry the schedule has been so busy lately, but it certainly looks like you've been able to make the best of what little family time you have.

Your kids are too cute! And yes, posting pictures of cute kids will always distract people from the lack of updates.

Wow... where has the time gone?

I am beginning to think that I am not very good at this Trip Report thing.

Well, I'm going to attempt to get back to it now that things have quieted down a bit. Hopefully, I'll make some headway.

I hope you are all doing well and have found other things to keep you occupied while I've been neglecting my duties as TR author.

Updates will be forthcoming!! and probably in this year too!!

Isn't it a pain when life gets in the way of writing trip reports?

If only we could get paid by Disney for writing them!
