Today we went to Moncks Corner to the West Farm Corn Maze to play with our friends and get us some pumpkins. This was our first time going to this farm and I personally liked it best out of all the ones in Charleston. Honestly the biggest part of that decision is the money, it was for sure cheaper!
When we first got there it was all about this slide and climbing on huge tires.
Then our friends got there we played some more then went to check out some of the animals. I for some reason thought the pig was pretty cool, Jesse and I watched him for a good 5 minutes.
Then we were off for the hayride. It was pretty uneventful but relaxing and a pretty ride around the corn field.
After the hayride we went to pick out our pumpkins and then we even got to paint them! I thought that was so cool only negative is some of the paint chipped off in the car.
Dave and the kids rode the hayride again while I hung out with the rest of the group.
Love spending time with my Newmans. We have been friends for 10 years minus a 1 year hiatus.
We all played a little bit more then parted ways because the rest of our evenings will be quite busy!
This is a before an after picture of the kids! Haha they wore themselves OUT!! It was a blast and definitely worth going to!!
One of the best parts of October is pumpkins!!! :)
This week has found me a wee bit more stressed than normal. The gym of course helps and my wednesday night bible study is pretty good for the soul as well. However there really is something about a relaxing evening spent with friends.
Dave and I went over to Ashley and Mikes last night to spend some quality time with them and have dinner. The minute we pulled up I just knew we had to go for a walk, the weather was perfect. Luckily everyone was down for it and we walked 2.16miles which was pretty darn good for a last minute thing.
We chatted, saw some ducks and some cats, viewed some Halloween decor but best of all laughed and chatted with friends.
Dave pushed Jesse super fast every now and then towards the end in his stroller and Jesse LOVED every second of it.
We got back after almost an hour to start with dinner. Mike did brats and Ashley made some fries and we may have had some wine while talking and waiting on dinner.
How cute is this wine glass?? Love it!
We also may have had some brownies and ice cream after! :) all in all a GREAT evening!!
It may have been the wine or just being so relaxed last night but I slept amazing!! I only woke up one time where normally I wake up like 4 or 5! So that definitely helped my friday start wonderfully!!
Happy Weekend everyone!! We have a lot planned and I am definitely looking forward to it all.
Sunday morning I got in a good workout, showered, had lunch then headed to Frankies Fun Park. Dave and I met up with Shannon and Ryan for some mini golf.
The weather could not have been more perfect. We had such a fun time.
And I won :) I got 2 hole in 1's go me!!!
Next Ryan did the batting cages while we watched. He was pretty good at it.
Then we went into the arcade to spend too much $$. Krystal met us there to play a few games since she lives like 5 mins or less away.
We had a TON of tickets so we got a few prizes including this cute monkey!
We all went out for some TCBY after and got to eat outside. Again it was such a beautiful day, no need to stay inside.
Then we went to my house for a yummy ham dinner and to spend time with the fam!! I loveeeeee spiral ham it is always one of my favorites. Then Dave and I finished the day with more Walking Dead. We are obsessed with this show. I can't wait to see how the rest of the seasons go. Who knew a zombie show would be so interesting!
2 more pictures regarding Race for the cure. Top picture is my doctors office, I thought their door decor was so pretty today when I saw it.
The pic of Dave below I just love, this pic makes me smile. That boy is always smiling no matter what life throws at him. God will always protect him and we have to trust in him to always provide. :) Let go and let God, just sayin!
Another Race for the Cure in the books, my third to be exact, Dave's first.
Friday night we did the annual party for the cure where we ate yummy food, met our team, got our shirts and had our plan for Saturday morning discussed. The people are so nice so I always enjoy these parties even though there's always a bunch of people I am meeting for the first time.
We had a great time and let's just say the cupcakes with cream cheese filling were devoured. They were amazing!!!! After the party Dave and I watched more Walking Dead then it was off to bed.
Saturday morning the alarm went off at 6.... Hated waking up that early on a weekend. We got all dressed up and headed to Daniel Island to meet the group.
I finally got myself a tutu this year and I loved it. It just brightened up my entire outfit which I was happy about.
We had quite a group this year with lots of kiddos. This might be the last year doing it as an organized group so we went out with a BIG group!
Nor and myself, she puts all the work in to getting the group together. We are the Wanda Warriors in honor of her mom Ms. Wanda!
Dave and I were pretty much on our own most of the time which was fine. We wanted to walk around to all the vendors for our free stuff like koozies and pink shoelaces. We did 2 photo booths which were so fun and we loved getting to see how everyone dressed up!
We met back up with everyone to start the race together. We ended up leaving most of the group mainly because we just walk faster and they had some strollers slowing them down. We walked with my friend Veronica for a good mile then walked with a few of our teammates the last mile.
We waited at the end and crossed the finish line as a group!!
I don't know why but I love this pic of Dave. This was us finishing the race, loved the balloon archway at the end.
The 3 pictures below I found online and they are out of order.
This was one of him and I that a company took and posted to their fb.
This one company took hundreds of photos and I actually found us in two photos! We are in the middle left of the pic below!
No clue if we will do it next year but I can definitely say we had fun this year and I am glad Dave joined me!
Yesterday we had a day off which extended our weekend all thanks to Columbus. I am not complaining one bit even though I was off work a lot of last week (thanks sickness) it still felt great to have monday off.
Dave and I went to the halloween store around the corner and had fun! I needed a pink tutu for Race for th Cure and we looked for costumes for him and Logan.
He got a jason mask with a knife (to include the blood) and Logan got a really cool ninja costume. I really hope Logan likes his costume and gets to wear it more than once. The church is having a little halloween thing for the kids on the 29th that Dave hopes to take the kids to.
We went to Walmart then hung out the rest of the day. Oh and we started the Walking Dead which was quite interesting! 4 seasons on Netflix so we will be busy at night for a few weeks at least! :)
Today was quite a busy workday so I got a good workout in after. I needed it and feel amazing!! Now time to figure out whats for dinner...decisions decisions!
